My husband and I recently stayed at the Cliffside Inn during our first visit to Newport and the lovely state of Rhode Island. The Inn was elegant yet comfortable with warmly gracious hosts and staff. We stayed in the Sun Room which was perfect in every way: antique furnishings yet a modern, luxurious bed and a shower that was simply the best I have ever had in a hotel room. After a long day day sight-seeing and walking, to sit (yes, there's a seat!) in a shower with steam and aromatherapy while rinsing under a rain head was just heavenly! The location is perfect being so close to the beginning of the Cliff Walk yet away from the craziness of downtown. The beach as well as several historic mansions, restaurants and museums are all within walking distance.
Be forewarned: the afternoon cocktail hour is so delicious and the wines so well chosen, you won't be hungry for dinner for a few hours!
