We stayed in the historic part of the hotel, second floor, facing the ocean. We were pleasantly surprised with the view out our windows to the ocean and that the room had a hot tub looking out to the ocean!
We booked this hotel without knowing anything about the Newport area.. the prices and ratings seemed reasonable, and we certainly do not regret out decision.
The hotel is not within walking distance of downtown Newport, but is just a short walk to the beach or cliffs. There was a wonderful little restaurant and bar downstairs, which we ate at most every night and morning. Cheerful, professional service there. Excellent meals always.
Our main complaint is with housekeeping. They were not very through with cleaning the room. They neglected critical things like replacing the waste basket bags and putting the extra roll of toilet paper in the bathroom. Keep in mind we stayed early in the week- off peak time, so being busy should not be an excuse.
The room was plenty big enough for a couple, but the bathroom was pretty tight, specifically getting to the toilet... if you are a large person, it is not going to be easy. The large screen TV was nice, as was the view from the bed, but we found the sheets to be rough and uncomfortable. Also, being close to a busy road- it was very loud late into the night, and then again early in the morning- not an ideal room if you like to sleep late.
Overall, we'd stay here again when in the area, there are some cons, but more pros. We did not like the fact they now charge $10 a night to park in their own lot- seems greedy.
