Excellent and top of the range hotel with excellent and top of the range service without any traces of snootiness, leading to a perfect and very relaxed stay, in our case unfortunately just for one night.
Beautifully situated at the beginning of Cliff Walk, it is close to the famous Newport mansions. The downtown harbour area is a little further away but still within walking distance.
The hotel is decorated tastefully and with much care, and so was our room, the Federal. It has a private roof deck, that we could not use because of the rain, and a beautiful and comfortable bathroom.
There is a vent just outside the room but we found the room is sound-insulated very well. Still, a slight monotonous buzz can be heard inside although it didn't disturb our sleep.
Finally, a special mention of waitress Maureen who made our delicious and included breakfast very memorable.
This hotel sets an example.More
