My husband recently surprised me with a birthday get-away weekend in Newburyport and when our original accommodations fell through at the last minute due to repairs, (that's a whole other review!) the Garrison Inn really stepped up. Not only did they find us a room at 2pm on a Saturday, but they gave us a complimentary upgrade to one of their best rooms in light of the milestone celebration.
The Inn is walkable to any Newburyport shop or restaurant you may want to visit. We had a lovely and quiet stay complete with a great made-to-order breakfast in their cozy tea room. Being a tea lover, I really enjoyed the tea bar in the lobby complete with a collection of antique cups and saucers. The staff even provided us with a silver pitcher for hot water and a tray so we could enjoy a warm cup in our room.
The "room" was a spacious two floor suite. There have been some comments on the decor choices and while they are certainly eclectic it's not outrageous. The juxtaposition of the exposed brick and some of the more modern accents might not be to everyone's taste. I do have to agree that form seems to have been prioritized over function when they were designing the rooms. Everything looks great, but there is nowhere to hang a hand towel in the bathroom. Certainly not a huge inconvenience, just odd.
Overall a great experience thanks to the staff at the Garrison Inn!
