My husband and I spent 4 nights / 5 days in a 1 bedroom / 1.5 bathroom townhouse suite on the fourth floor of the Newport Bay Club & Hotel. This property has wonderful timeshare units that are available for "hotel" use. We were in town for the October, Newport, Seafood Festival weekend. All the rooms at this property were recently renovated. We peeked into several rooms while housekeeping was cleaning. Each unit was well decorated, clean and comfortable . Please review the included photos of the unit we occupied.
The kitchen area in our unit had granite counter tops, brushed stainless steel and black appliances and new cabinets, with a brushed stainless sink and faucet. The kitchen was stocked well. The unit was freshly painted and smelled very clean. The hotel strongly enforces the no smoking policy, which we greatly appreciate. The bathrooms are new and very well appointed. The towels are thick and plush and very large. The tile and grout are immaculate. The full bathroom shower was huge and very clean with excellent water pressure. The vanities, lights, toilets, sinks and faucets in both bathrooms are all new.
The queen mattress in our bedroom was brand new and very comfortable. The linens were crisp and clean and the duvet cover was stuffed with a very cozy down filled comforter.
The bedroom had a spacious closet with hangers, an iron and an ironing board.
Our townhouse unit was two floors. The first floor consisted of the kitchen, dining area, living room, closet and a half bath. There was a gorgeous balcony extending the entire length of the first floor with floor to ceiling windows and a sliding door overlooking the Newport Harbor. Spectacular views everywhere you looked from the balcony.
To reach the second floor, there is a spiral staircase. At the top of the spiral staircase is the bedroom and the full bathroom. There is a also an a amazing balcony extending the length of the bedroom area with floor to ceiling windows and a sliding door. the views are just as wonderful from this balcony. The unit receives beautiful sunlight and refreshing breezes.
We were on the fourth floor and did not hear any noises from inside the hotel during our stay. On Friday and Saturday night you could hear normal street noise and music from the bar/ restauraunt, Christie's which is next door to the hotel. However, all bars shut down promptly at 1:00 AM in Rhode Island. We slept peacefully with the sliding door open for fresh breezes from the harbor all night long. The rest of the nights during our stay were very quiet.
The location is just perfect. Possibly the best of all the hotels on the water in Newport. You can walk to everything in downtown Newport easily. You can take the trolly service to sightsee and to tour the mansions and other attractions. The hotel permits one parking space per unit. The hotel parking is very secure. Parking lots are within walking distance if you need additional parking spaces, the parking fees were reasonable,$15.00 - $20.00 for 24 hours.
There are several ammenities at the Newport Bay Club & Hotel that we discovered.
The hotel has a fun restaurant / bar on sight, The Rhino Bar. The food was delicious, the service was great and the prices were reasonable. The music can get loud, but the bands that played at the Rhino Bar were very entertaining. There is also a dance club next to the Rhino Bar. The Rhino Bar offers delivery service to your room. There are several boutique, gift shops, a breakfast and lunch place, and a convenience store. All of these are located inside of the same building as the Newport Bay Club & Hotel. It's very convenient and safe. There are ice machines, laundry machines and a garbage shoot for trash. There is a small continental breakfast available each morning on the third floor.
The housekeeping staff was very pleasant and very efficient. They arrived each day to clean our unit.
The front desk staff were all very helpful with directions, honoring requests for extra pillows and offering restaurant suggestions.
The Newport Bay Club & Hotel has everything you need for an enjoyable stay in Newport.
I am excited to return!
