Hallmark Resort
Ranked #2 of 24 Hotels in Newport
Reviewed September 3, 2011

We return here every year with our dogs. It's simply the best resort in Newport, with wonderful ocean views and easy beach access. It's clean, quiet, pet friendly, and has all the amenities you expect in a top rate property. We highly recommend it for couples and families. Our two poodles recommend the pet exercise area, the staff, the beach, and the ever present dog treats at the front desk.

Georgie's Grill never disappoints. They don't take reservations from the general public but will accept them from hotel guests, allowing you to bypass the usual wait in the restaurant lobby. All seats have an ocean view, but ask for a window table for an unobstructed view. Hey, you came to see the ocean, right?

Just an afterthought. I think it might be against the law to visit the ocean without your dogs :-)

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor of the south wing. The rooms are soundproof and pet friendly. It's a...

We (2 children ages 5 and 7 and 2 adults) stayed here for the weekend in July 2011. We stayed on the 3rd floor. Room 313 I think. All the rooms faced the ocean and had a great view. We had a balcony room. Beds were comfortable, couch was nice, and the room had a small kitchenette with utensils, plates, bowls, etc. Even had a can opener and wine corkscrew.
The proximity to the beach was excellent and there are 3 separate stairwells to the beach below. It was a very close and quick walk to the beach. Beach area was clean and well maintained.
Pool and spa were quite nice, though the building smelled strongly of chlorine and was humid. Kids loved it though and water seemed fairly warm. Spa was quite hot and very large. I did not use the sauna, but it looked clean and inviting. The only minor complaint was the amount of water around the pool. There were puddles everywhere because of the design of the pool area any amount of water splashed out puddled around the pool area and there were only a few chairs to sit in. This was minor though since we spent just a half an hour there and I set our clothes on the windowsill, which was fine.
I do highly recommend the restaurant in the hotel and make a reservation or check in early cause there was a half our wait. The food was excellent and they had a great selection of kids choices of the kids menu. They had a great selection of food overall, but we both had fish selections and they were very good.
Overall we had a great experience here, reservations were made easily over the phone, the stay was pleasant and we would defenitely come back.

We were greeted upon arrival with a sand bucket full of toys for our 1 year old! EVERYONE was extremely friendly and service-oriented. On the second night, the smoke alarm in our room had a dead battery and was beeping. It was not 10 min before a maintenance man arrived and swapped it out with special care not to wake our sleeping baby. Even he asked if we were enjoying our stay! The room was very spacious, safe, clean and comfortable. Having the spa in the room was IDEAL. Food delivered from Georgie's was very tasty and reasonably priced. We will definitely be back. Hopefully on a less windy week :)

Found the Hallmark Inn of Newport to be near perfect starting at the reception by check-in staff and carried through to housekeeping. Stayed in a "Limited Edition King Spa for 2" which was well-appointed, beautifully and recently updated, w/awesome views, granite counters in both kitchenette and bath, gas fireplace, two flat screen TVs, couldn't find one thing that was lacking. We travel often, mostly focused on entire West coast from CA to WA and can't imagine a negative review being made - loved it!

We made a repeat visit to the Hallmark and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Every room has an oceanview balcony. How nice to fall asleep to the sound of the surf.

The kitchenette is supplied with the basics so, if you don't want to eat every meal out, you don't have to. Besides the microwave, a small cooktop would be the nice final addition. Nevertheless, that first cup of coffee while sitting on the balcony in the nice white robes they provide, HOW NICE IS THAT. The King size bed was comfortable and the two-person jacuzzi tub, well, can it get much more romantic than that?

The time that we were able to spend was not nearly long enough, nevertheless, very enjoyable and relaxing! We'll be back!

Ushie_40 – First of all, thank you for the return visit. We greatly appreciate our return guests. I hope that you can find the time to stay longer on your next visit.

On another note, we do have 4 Admiral Suites that either have a cook top or a full stove top / oven in them. These are also are largest rooms we offer so they should fit the bill perfectly if you do decide to stay longer on your next visit with us. Last but not least, they also feature the King bed and spa tub for two that you liked in the other room. We will be looking forward to your next visit.
