Oceancliff resort is beautiful from the outside and has some lovely parts inside. The views are spectacular and the common areas and the restaurant are quite classy and cozy. The issues I had were with the rooms themselves. I was there on business and so several colleagues were staying at the resort as well. Two of us had rooms next to each other and it was a shock when I realized I could hear every single word that was being spoken in my colleague's room, even when spoken at a normal voice. More disturbing was the fact that there seemed to be no middle ground in the heating of the rooms. My room was either so hot that I couldn't breathe (like a furnace) or freezing. I felt bad that I had to keep calling the front desk to turn the heat on and off, but apparently there is no middle ground. It might be a better property to stay at in the summer.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- OceanCliff Resort was designed and built in 1864 by the architectural firm Peabody & Stearns from Boston who designed the original Breakers and Doris Duke's Rough Point both located on elegant Bellevue Avenue. A wealthy industrialist and member of Mrs. Astor's 400 Club originally used OceanCliff as a private summer residence during the Gilded Age. The estate remained a private summer home until 1954, when it was sold and later converted into an oceanfront retreat to host lavish parties and society affairs. Located on 10 acres of rolling lawns with spectacular ocean views, OceanCliff offers a truly unique blend of breathtaking beauty, world-class cuisine and a professionally trained staff to ensure meticulous attention to every detail of your stay. Twenty-four distinctly stylized guest rooms whisk you back to the 19th century with modern conveniences and stunning oceanfront views. OceanCliff's grand ballroom accommodates from 75-250 guests for dinner and dancing, while a variety of smaller rooms allow for more intimate gatherings. Set amidst the breathtaking splendor of the Narragansett Bay, OceanCliff has inspired generations of brides with some of the most enchanting landscapes in Newport, Rhode Island. Whether you prefer a romantic summer sunset celebration or a unique winter white wedding, OceanCliff offers a variety of wedding and reception options. OceanCliff is located on historic Ocean Drive with easy access to downtown Newport and is only a 90-minute drive from Boston and Hartford. ... more less
