I have been looking for a long time for a romantic place to escape to with my husband. Mainly, I wanted a fireplace, hot tub, and most of all, a big room. I have tried other B&Bs, but overall, they have failed to satisfy in one way or another. In the Hydrandea House Inn, I have finally found THE place. We stayed in the Hydrangea Suite, which was a huge room on the third floor. I was a little concerned that the room would be dark given the dark green walls, but it wasn't at all, thanks to the windows and skylights. In addition to the fabulous room, you have great hosts, excellent breakfasts, and all that Newport has to offer within walking distance. Despite the misty weather, we enjoyed walks at the Cliff Walk, Sachusett Point Wildlife Refuge and Fort Adams. There is a wine shop two doors down, and a bread and cheese shop just past that. What more do you need! We had great dinners and drinks at Buskers (see separate review.) Newport is a great place to visit in the spring and fall--less crowds and less expensive accomodations. The only downside to our stay was street noise outside. The Hotel Viking is directly across the street, and the sounds of arrivals and departures (voices and car doors) extended into the late night hours. If this kind of thing is likely to keep you awake, ask for a room to the rear of the property. I would highly recommend the Hydrangea House for couples who are looking for a getaway in a luxurious property located in a great city.
