I think the theory behind the Residence Inns is that they are supposed to be places where you can have a comfortable extended stay if you are going to be in an area for a while. Well, the things that make a Residence Inn a good place for a long stay also make it a good place to stay for a night or two. The rooms are spacious and confortable, and it's really a bonus to have a full kitchen with refrigerator and dishwasher.
As mentioned in many previous reviews, the hotel is set far back from the main road, so it's a quiet spot, yet there are restaurants and shopping areas close by. The included breakfast was a fine one, and we found the staff to be attentive. We had a very minor problem with the faucet in the bathroom, and a staff member appeared immediately after we reported it to deal with it.
The hotel is a couple of miles outside of downtown Newport, so if you go there during the busy season you'll have to deal with the Newport parking situation, which you wouldn't have to do if you stayed in one of the hotels within walking distance. But that's not always a problem, since you might be there for the Cliff Walk or the local vineyards. And having a nice room which is less pricey than the downtown hotels is worth a lot.
So we've decided to make the Residence Inn our base whenever we stay in the Newport area.
