The good: This hotel is in the center of Newport and walking distance (1/2 mile or less) to just about everything except the beach and Fort Adams. It was clean and had nice accommodations -- we had a 1 bedroom townhouse w/ microwave, coffee pot, sink, dishwasher and 1.5 baths. It came equipped with dishes and silverware. The staff not as friendly as some places, but certainly professional and responsive, so cheerfulness not much of an issue for fellow New Englanders.
The not-so-good: Had some items not working (bedroom balcony door, fan in lower bath), but the balcony off the living area worked, so upstairs issue not so bad. They were a little cheap with the paper products (had to ask for additional toilet paper) and ran low on kleenex; also no paper towels in kitchen. Had one of the WiFi passwords not work, so had to obtain 1 additional (we had 4 total) -- but again, not a crisis and by no means a reason to not stay there! Also the AC fan was a bit noisy, but at least the AC worked -- and it worked very well.
Overall: I would recommend
