extremely comfortable rooms, beds you want to sink into, linen to die for and spacey clean bathrooms...BUT, arriving in Newport from Europe, with jetlag issues, be warned, you will not be able to sleep in this hotel - especially if you have rooms 6 & 7. loud music from the deck bar/resturant in the evenings and piped music outside your room in the corridor starting from 6am - music so loud that you must turn up your AC to make your room very cold to block out the noise from the reception music and the piped corridor music. the hotel seems to be run by summer college students who you cant identify as they wear no kind of ID or uniform or even any kind of clothing that would identify them as employees of the hotel - not a hotel manager in sight, even when we asked to speak to the manager - no reception desk to speak of, just a table with a laptop and a young girl surfing the net..no concierge services and if local information needed, your answer will be found by the girl at the desk surfing the net for you. Saying that the employees were all very pleasant, especially the car parking guys, lovely hotel interiors - great location, just don't expect to sleep..
