“Great B&B”
Reviewed February 11, 2007

We booked this B&B to experience Newport and staying in a B&B. The innkeepers were very detail-oriented, patient, and flexible in the booking, confirming and arriving process. They wrote us a personal welcome letter and left a map and key for us since we arrived when they were not home.
We had a a cozy room with our own bathroom and fully functioning amenities. There was AC, multiple fans, and windows to control the climate in the bedroom.
We took advantage of the easy ability to walk or drive wherever we wanted from this B&B. We also took advantage of the afternoon tea, coffee and snacks as well as the evening sherry on the first night. On another night we were able to grab a movie from the library and play it in our room.
They did a wonderful job with breakfast! They had something different each day and took custom orders to suit everyone's tastes. We dined in the dining and on the porch, both alone and with other guests.
It was such a beautiful place; one couple got engaged during our stay!

I've stayed at Architects Inn seven times now - and it's like coming home to the best home you can imagine. The inn is grand and romantic - a showcase of Newport style. Located in the heart of the "Top of the Hill" historic district, the inn is wthin walking distance of the beach, Bellevue Avenue, and all the sites and shops. On every day of every stay, it is spotless; the rooms delightfully decorated and maintained. Bathrooms are luxurious and convenient; beds comfortable. Local papers, magazines, DVDs, and brochures about local attractions are always handy. Experienced innkeepers Sheila and Harlan are the perfect combination of gracious good spirits, lively conversation about Newport and the area, and unobtrusive attentiveness. The full breakfasts - a changing menu of eggs benedict, french toast, pancakes, fruit, bacon, sausage, and fresh pastries personally served in a charming dining room - are never to be missed! In short, the best of the best in fabulous Newport.

  • Liked — The welcoming atmosphere and historical, elegant rooms
  • Disliked — I had to leave and go home!
  • Tips/Secrets — Ask for one of the rooms with a fireplace - charming.
