New York City, New York6 contributions6 helpful votes
Our daughter got married last week in Newport and we arranged for our guests to stay at Gurney’s-Newport. What a horrendous mistake!!! The list of catastrophes and shortcomings is too long and painful to repeat here, but some highlights (or lowlights) include uncleaned rooms (uniformly and repeatedly), lost luggage, no bar service, no dining service and surly service when “service” was available. Two exceptions were the front desk and bell staff, who – while severely undermanned – did try to provide “service.” Particularly galling was the repeated lies we were fed by Food Manager Jonathan Pelletier who promised us twice that he would provide normal-hours food service for our guests – food that never arrived. And all of that is not to mention the outdated and tired décor and small (cramped) and dark guestrooms. This facility is leagues below other Gurney’s facilities we have visited AND SHOULD BE AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS!!!! [Footnote: While the hotel management is too uncaring and inept to respond, I hope they will avoid the gratuitous/obligatory “apology” that our stay was “unsatisfactory as that would miss the mark. It was HORRIBLE – not “unsatisfactory.” AVOID!!]

We recently celebrated our daughter’s wedding in Newport, RI, on New Year’s Eve. The celebration was phenomenal. Our stay @ Gurney’s of Newport RI was anything but. Our group booked over 30 rooms, including 4 suites. The “reduced block rate” for our rooms was roughly $289.00, totaling over $350.00 per room, per night, inclusive of fees, with a 2-night minimum. The suites were considerably more expensive. Our stay was marked by disappointment after disappointment, starting with our arrival. While Gurney’s home page touts it as “The Most Beautiful Hotel in Rhode Island,” a designation granted it purportedly by Architectural Digest, it is not. The rooms and common areas are dated and in desperate need of renovation. That is where the flattery stops. We and our guests encountered myriad plumbing and drainage problems in our rooms; my son’s luggage, tuxedo and rehearsal dinner suit were sent to the wrong room following his arrival, causing us to be late to the rehearsal dinner; and, adding insult to injury, on New Year’s morning, we and our guests waited nearly two hours for our meals before being asked “why we were still sitting there,” as our food order had been cancelled. The Food & Beverage Director, along with another manager, were directly involved with and aware of this fiasco. Too many details to enumerate here. The two female waitstaff we encountered were rude and surly, and that is me being polite. Do yourself a favor. Don’t stay at Gurney’s. Have a drink at the pineapple bar in the Summer to enjoy the grounds and stay somewhere else. Patricia Mulligan

Very clean and organized, no stress vacation. They make everything easy from check-in to checkout. It was a great time for family time. Everything was wonderful. Valet, room service, restaurant and ice skating rink. We had a great time. And Newport has so many things to do. And Gurney’s is also dog friendly.

Bathroom in our room was gross. The molding on the bathroom door was falling off. Rudest experience with one of the restaurant managers (one of the restaurant managers was great, this gentleman just happened to be terrible), and two of the bartenders after a great dinner. Hotel manager attempted to apologize with a form letter with a bunch of typos, clearly doesn’t care enough to proof read his apologies. Syrdan and Paul were standout hard workers. Both working breakfast, lunch, and dinner during our entire stay. They were great and everyone else was phenomenal as well, outside of one very unpleasant situation after dinner.

Good day Chris, Thank you for your review and it was a pleasure meeting you and your wife this past weekend. As promised, I did review the situation with our Director of Food & Beverage so we may avoid history repeating. Again, my apologies for the expereince and I am glad to read how much you thought of Syrdan and Paul. We continue to focus on our guest room projects as we are making progress everyday. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. David Smiley General Manager david.smiley@gurneysresorts.com

Stayed at Gurney’s for the Christmas holiday and it was fantastic. The kids loved the ice skating rink and the service was phenomenal. Although the hotel is a little dated, it is worth a stay. The restaurant and outdoor igloos are a must too!
