Visited with my 21 year old hip niece, my 50ish sister and 80 year old mom. Wonderful stay for all. We arrived at 10 a.m., moments before a summer downpour, and - since our room wasn't ready yet - we were provided with a great space in The Gallery. We settled into comfortable chairs and sofas, mom flipped through the art books that are part of the extensive and eclectic library found everywhere throughout the building. The "girls" settled in with complimentary tea and waters and used the free wi-fi to plan our day and choose a restaurant. Throughout our stay everyone on the staff brought that perfect combination of solicitousness and friendliness that is so welcome when travelling. They knew their hotel, they knew their neighborhood and they knew their town - wonderful Newport!
During our stay we enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pools; the amazing, calming and quieting garden with a fire pit at night and breakfast by the fountain in the morning; sunset cocktails on the gorgeous rooftop deck overlooking the harbor; the easy walk to restaurants and shopping as well as sites; breakfast in the beautiful conservatory; the work out center with its customized media at each location (free earbuds would be a welcome addition for us forgetful folks!); and most of all, the wonderful staff, from Ray at the door to Jeff at the front desk. Whether looking for a great restaurant, recommendations on what mansions or beaches to visit, or the best local wine store, they were always prepared with great information and humorous insights.
We'll definitely be back!!
