“Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

Have Always stayed at the Newport Marriott however couldn't get in that weekend it was booked. So with hesitancy we booked a room at the America cup. Much to our surprise this little hotel exceeded our expectations! Great location right in the center of it all, great room with views of all the shops, clean and service outstanding! We'll definately be back again! Great Value!

We stayed at America's Cup when in town for a wedding over a weekend in May, and were shocked that the room was as large and nice as it was for the price, especially given the location. The inn is located right on Thames Street, a block or two from the harbor, and a 10-15min walk from Bellevue Ave. Our room was actually a mini-suite, with a tiny (although outdated) kitchenette and pull-out sofabed. The decor seemed a bit older, but the bed was firm, and bathroom was brand-new with a jacuzzi and shower (lots of marble). Breakfast was great as well--very large buffet. I will definitely keep this on my short list of places to go back to.

A very nice, small hotel located right at the heart of Newport, RI. Despite its central location I found the hotel to be very quiet, especially at night. This might not be the case during busy times such as the Americas Cup. Staff were helpful and friendly. Just one word of advice. Taxis often take a long time to arrive even when booked in advance. So allow for plenty of time.

This is one of the best B&B's that I have stayed in. Estaphan and David went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Even the cleaning and cooking staff were wonderful. This was also in the heart of Newport with an great Irish bar right next door. Very clean, and fantastic breakfast/brunch spread. I will surely be going back.

Room Tip: 3rd floor is great. There is a great deck on the 4th

We would use the word cozy to describe this inn, which means it is more in line with a B&B than a hotel, per se. The room provided (#103) was refreshed (newer paint, carpeting, wallpaper, bedding) and remarkably very clean. We have little hope for beds in these types of places, but the bed here was very comfortable with had better quality linens, the gem of our find. A nice plus was the separate sink from the smaller bathroom, which gives considerably more elbow space. In fact, room was comparatively large (two sitting arm-chairs), and even provided a walk-in closet with mini-fridge stocked with 2 bottles of water (nice little touch). In-wall A/C worked well, and blackout shade on window did just that, blacked-out the lights from outside. NOTE: We had a room street-level on Mary St, and while some said this was a negative, we honestly did not find any concern from street noise, even on Memorial Day weekend.

As for pricing; availability and peak-season pricing in Newport throw us for a loop in unpredictability. One day all the hotels will cost $150/night, and on the next, all hotels will sell for $300/night. While I can't recommend the breaking price-point for deciding wether to stay here, I'd be happy reserving again it if the price was = to most other options in the CBD of Newport.

Room Tip: I wouldn't worry about receiving keys to 100 level rooms, they weren't any more noisy in our...

America's Cup Inn has a great location and we found the staff to be nice and very helpful. Even though we were on the first floor, the noise of the street wasn't a problem. But like most older hotels, the walls were a little thin and we did hear some noise on occasion from our neighbors. The worst was the water sounds from a 5:00AM shower. But the recently redone room (103) was clean and nice. Plenty of room for the king size bed. Parking was a bit difficult, but we waited until 8:00PM and found a spot in the lot right near the hotel. Breakfast was served at 8:00AM and had plenty of breads, pancakes, waffles, fruit, cold cuts, yogurt, pre-made egg omelets, bacon, juices, and coffee.

We enjoyed being in the middle of the action. We walked to dinner and bars which were all very close to the hotel.

Room Tip: Room 103 was on the first floor and the window was right on the side walk. We had to keep the shade...
