My daughter & I stayed two nights as a girl's weekend. The front desk staff is excellent and went out of their way to be accommodating. We loved the shop in the main level-art, jewelry, furniture, fun! Pool-smelled like too many kids had been in it but the hot tub was great if a bit small. Nice little work out...

We stayed for two nights during February school break. On a whole, this hotel is charming. The staff was very friendly, though the valets seemed more interested in helping/offering directions, etc. than the ladies at the check in desk. The location is perfect for exploring everything that Newport has to offer. The common areas in the hotel were charming and...
