“A hidden gem in downtown”
Reviewed July 18, 2006

We had a great visit at the America's Cup Inn. The location is perfect, in the middle of downtown, across from the harbor.
Staff was gracious and friendly, really outstanding. Helped with family activities suggestions, arrangements, and comfort.
New owners last year (I think) have done extensive renovations and redecorating so the rooms are beautifully designed and comfortable.
Previous comments about the breakfast are right. It was bountiful and attractive as was afternoon tea!

  • Liked — location, friendly & helpful staff, room decoration
  • Disliked — no elevator (although most rooms are ground level or one-two flights up)
  • Tips/Secrets — Check out the roof deck!
  • Stayed July 2006, traveled with family

Could be a nice place, if the owner / management took the time to care for it. Soft Rock radio piping through the lobby seems out of place for the quaint building and location. In the lobby, employees are sometimes chatting and smoking! Holes in the walls, peeling wallpaper, drippy faucets, breakfast left a lot to be desired. They tout a deck on the 4th floor where you can enjoy a cocktail, but it is ridden with weeds, old dirty ashtrays.. no one ever went out there during our stay and who could blame them? This was $230 a night during their busy season; but was worth more like $150.00. This is in the heart of Newport's down town which is unfortunately, a rowdy drunken area..!:(
