What a pleasant night it was... After running around all day enjoying soulful jazz from 3 different stages, while observing Ramadan, I was very lucky my sister booked room #9 of seaman's Church for me. Comfortable room, nice ocean view, very peaceful with A/C on fingertips. Many bars & live clubs right along the harbor as extension of the NJF. I'll recommend Seaman's Church to anybody who can Dig it.... Best of Newport.

The building has an elevator and is completely ADA-accessible. Discounts available for mariners and military. All funds raised from the Crow's Nest goes back to Seamen's and the community.
