“Get away weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

We were given a weekend getaway as a gift from our kids. The Admiral Fitzroy Inn was great. The location was perfect for walking to restaurants and night spots. Our room was on the top floor and had a semi private deck. The weather during our March getaway was perfect, so we did get to enjoy the deck. Upon our arrival, there was a bottle of wine in our room, fresh cut flowers, and a box of chocolates. A king size bed was comfortable. There was a continental breakfast each morning and the fruits and pastries were fresh. We would stay there again without question!

Room Tip: go for the room with deck and king size bed!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Admiral Fitzroy Inn and had a wonderful time! We purchased a great deal that included our room, a bottle of wine, flowers, and a box of chocolate. Our stay could not have been more perfect! The Inn is in a wonderful location on Thames street-very easy to walk to lots of great restaurants, shops and down to the wharf areas. The inn keeper was very sweet and kind and answered all of our questions before and at time of arrival. We were very lucky to stay in a third floor room (#14) because we had a water view--it was really perfect! The room was decorated very nicely in a nautical/blue theme which was great for Newport. We were very pleasantly surprised as well that the room had it's own mini-fridge. The room was very well maintained and clean--we were very impressed. The bathroom was also nice and we thought they had some of the softest towels we have ever experienced! We loved the roof deck and lucked into nice March weather to enjoy it--we sat at the provided table and chairs and really enjoyed the sunshine. (Tip: if you would like a private balcony that can be viewed from the rooftop deck you should request room #18 or #19 as they had their own deck area attached to the room but you can see the main deck area from them as well). We thought everything at the Inn was wonderful and loved the breakfast--it included a variety of delicious cheeses, rolled ham, hard boiled eggs, cereals, croissants(delish!), bagels, english muffins, sweet breads (cinnamon and blueberry during our stay), a lovely mixed fruit salad, fresh yogurt, granola, coffee/tea and a variety of juices. My favorite item was the mini scones! We really enjoyed the dining area as well which was light and bright! The living room was also very nice and cozy. We will be back to the Admiral Fitzroy!

My husband and I had a quick weekend trip to Newport, RI and stayed at the Admiral Fitzroy Inn. We really enjoyed the stay and thought it was a perfect location. The rooms had a lot of character. We stayed in room 12 which had a large living area divided into two parts, one for the bed and the other for a trundle bed and tv. Families with kids would have enough space to roam around.

Breakfast was also ample and tasty. It wasn't quite a B&B style but it was well beyond a continental breakfast. We never left hungry. The staff were also very friendly.

The only reason this review didn't receive 5 stars was the matress tended to roll us into the center of the bed. But overall we would recommend the Admiral Fitzroy Inn

Like Edward 1956, we also stayed in the room behind the reception desk in October 2012. We were also surprised as we did not expect a small suite. It was very comfortable, sweet, and quiet. The breakfast provided by the Inn was delicious with many different options and served in a charming dining area, I particularly loved the ladies portrait that serves as a focal point. The staff at the Inn was courteous and very helpful! The Inn itself is very centrally located and within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We really appreciated the parking lot in the back of the Inn, no need to worry where to park! We also loved their packages and like the choice of restaurants offered. Sardellas and Red Parrot are our two favorites! If you go, don't forget to go up to the roof! Great view! We really enjoyed our two night stay and hope to return the year!

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor, but they have an elevator so there is no need to hesitate about stayin...

Sue, thank you for this very nice review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in October. You're the first person to mention the portrait of the lady! Many years ago we had an essay contest asking guests to "tell her story." Maybe we will try that again! We're also glad you mentioned our packages since they are a great way for guests to save and get a little "taste" of Newport. We recently added some new packages for 2014 and hope you'll come again to try them out.

Happy New Year to you! Thanks again for taking the time to write a review.

We stayed at the Inn this September. The room was very comfortable and clean. We needed a room for 3 so that each person could have their own bed. Our room had a trundle which was very comfortable and worked perfectly for our situation. During the day we were able to use the area as a sitting room. You may need to keep your windows closed at night. We did experience some street noise.
The continental breakfast had plenty of variety including some homemade items.
The staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions of where to eat and what to do.
One of the best features was the free off the street parking. You can easily walk to anywhere in town and if you're really into walking you can even go to the mansions (roughly 2 miles one way).
I have recommended the Inn to many of my friends and would definitely go back next time I visit Newport.

We spent one night at the Admiral Fitzroy Inn, one of the two rooms we booked, was pleasantly large, the other average. Both rooms had all the amenities you need for a night. The rooms were clean, but price range was rather high (>USD 400 for 4 persons). What is great about the inn is its location. Vey close to harbour, restaurants and shops but still very quiet. They allowed us to leave car in the parking lot after check-out, which was a nice addition. Breakfast room is extremely tight - you can hardly sit down without asking the person at the next table to get up and make room... Food quality was fine, there's bagels, cereals, fruit etc. but nothing fancy and no cooked items.
Inn is a bit aged as other reviewers have noticed, but there's also a charming side to that.

Spent two days at The AFI. More Inn than B&B, the room we had was roomy and clean, serviced without incident. Loved having on site parking. We arrived early and left after checkout and they allowed us to leave our car in the lot. Great spot near the wharfs, museums, dining etc. Breakfast is continental, but be sure and ask for warm ham and cheese on a crossant. Enjoyed the complimentary bottle of wine on the rooftop at dusk. Don't expect 4 star, but if clean and comfy suit you, this place is great. The off season visit allowed us to interact with lots of locals hanging out at O'Briens, Newport Storm Brewery and Coddingtons. Take the Cliff Walk to enjoy views of the mansions and coastline. Great Romantic Weekend Getaway.

Room Tip: Find a local bar and ask for dinner recommendations. The locals will point you to happy hours, disc...
