“Very Convenient”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

We reserved through RCI and found it to be very convenient to the sights of Newport. Our room overlooks the Newport Shipyard and the Pell Bridge where we could watch the activity. Driving to some of the local shops and boat tours is not required if you don't mind medium walks. Considering the high cost of parking in Newport, this location makes for easy sightseeing. Also, the Visitors Center and Transportation building is a 3 minute walk from our room.

The indoor outdoor pool and surroundings are very nice. Being there in mid May there was not a lot of activity scheduled but there is more during the summer season. Only negative they did not have newspapers available unless you are a VIP member.

We would come back here, if we planned on returning.

Room Tip: There are only 9 balconies. Call early to get one. Also, try to overlook the courtyard or the piers...

We stayed in a one bedroom unit in building across the street from the main building. There was a kitchenette and sleep sofa. Size was ok for two people. Internet connection very slow and sporadic. The location is great. Short Walking distance to restaurants and shops. Short drive to the mansions, Cliff walk and beach. Nice work out gym. Outdoor pool was closed, but there was an indoor/outdoor pool that was open.

After reading the poor reviews for this hotel, I was worried about the condition of the property and the room. I was careful to request a renovated room and got a spacious 2 bedroom suite for an extremely reasonable price. The room was clean, new, and well appointed; perfect for myself, my husband, and our two young kids. There was even a washer-dryer. The kids loved the indoor-outdoor pool as well. The hotel is also conveniently located by the harbor, within walking distance to the shops and restaurants, and a short drive to the sights. The only downside is that there is no maid service if you stay for less than 3 days, and the thin walls which provided little soundproofing from our neighbors.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room!

The location of this hotel in Newport is really nice. When looking out our room in the evening, the view of the Pell/Newport Bridge lights are spectacular. Other than that, the indoor pool area is disgusting. Old dirty wet carpeting and the pool slide had rust showing all over. Our room wasnt bad,but the place needs updating through and through. Never again.

Room Tip: Pick a room facing the marina

Close to the central city but a car is needed for most sites. We got the 2 BR unit and everything was first class...furnishing,beds,heat/AC,quiet, plenty of hand carts for luggage, HBO. Close to a few restaurants. They offer a 2 for 1 special at the nearby Marriott cafe called the Fathoms..it's worth a look especially after a hard day of mansion walking.

two things of these hotel are super: the location in the heart of Newport and the size+quality of the room. The hotel is quite big but in the meantime the staff is always available for any need.An unforgettable experience,

Decent location in Newport with good views of the water from rooms in the "annex" building. Very odd set up with registration around the corner and most amenities located in the registration building location (i.e. pool) which entails a walk in what can be less than ideal weather. Single bedroom unit is small but functional with a well equipped kitchenette. Bathrooms have been nicely updated. As others have noted, it is not very well marked so it can be difficult to identify. Desk personnel are pleasant and helpful.
