Lodging Recommendations for Single Guy

Looking to just get away for a few days. Considering Newport. Haven't been there for years. Recommendations on hotels and activities/hangouts for a single guy? Hyatt seems nice, but not sure it's the right place.

Thanks in advance.

When are you arriving? If it's sometime in August, pickings will be slim; you may not have much of a choice. September may be no better, even after Labor Day. If you're looking to be near restaurants and bars, the harbor area (Bowen's and Bannister's Wharfs) is best. There are few hotels there, including the Marriot and Wyndham. Also a number of inns and B&Bs. The Hyatt's on Goat Island, over a small bridge to the harbor area, not necessarily in the middle of things.

Looks like the Marriott, Hyatt, Newport Harbor Hotel and Marina, Wyndham(s), Newport Beach Hotel & Suites ... all have availability week of 8/27. Any recommendations?

Mariott, Newport Harbor Hotel, and the Wyndham will put you right in the middle of all the action.

They Hyatt is off a bit out on Goat Island but relaxing out there and they have a shuttle, or it's a 10 - 15 minute walk.

The Newport Beach Hotel is out by the beach, about a 20 minute walk up the hill into town. A busy restaurant/bar across the street and a few other places to grab food drink around the corner....quieter than downtown though.
