We decided to visit Newport for a quick overnight. The town was quiet and the weather was great - we did not make reservations but had seen The Attwater on-line and decided to stop in. We were greeted warmly and given a suite on the top floor. It had a spacious living space, a small refrigerator and coffee maker and then a larger sleeping area. The decor is fabulous - chic, modern, minimalist with hints of color. I loved the black and white tiled bath area and I especially appreciated the separate sink area. Linens are top notch and the King bed was very comfy. The ipod dock is a nice added touch as was the gas fireplace - we both have iPads so we did not use the one they loan you. The Attwater is close to town, the marina and the historic district - great location and off the main streets. We could hear people through our bathroom vent but nothing to distracting to our stay. The breakfast in the AM was an added bonus - we shared quiche and a ham/cheese scone like pastry along with fresh melon. The hosts are pleasant and thoughtful. A great place to rest - the sitting space on the first floor was bright and festive and a wonderful place to hang out if you did not want to stay in your room. I especially love the hardwood floors and the bowls on the wall as you walk up the stairs. A great stay!

Room Tip: We were on the top floor which was nice and had a nice corner room. It was a suite but with the sitting area on the first floor you really do not have to stay in suite - you can certainly make yourself comfortable in the main floor living space.

Thank you so much for your review. So are so glad you had a great time in one of our King Suites. Aren't the bowls in the hallway cool? Our interior designer, Rachel Reider, really has an eye for details like that. Sounds like you had a nice, relaxing time in our comfy beds and savored our complimentary breakfast in the morning. Please come back and visit us again soon!

My husband and I came for one night. It was restaurant week in Newport, so there was a complimentary bottle of prosecco and a package of Lark Fine Food Cookies (the salted rosemary ones.) in honor of the week. The ipod dock allowed for relaxing music to play any time we were in our room. The iPad they provide has links to their favorite restaurants, as well as the ones that were doing restaurant week. its a quiet inn and a quiet town. great location with easy walks to about anywhere. Staff were friendly. they have their own parking lot. Lots of good restaurants nearby. Only down side...hearing the water rushing as the room above us flushed their toilet. or the door outside our room slammed when our neighbor was going out.

Room Tip: 2nd floor could hear upstairs toilet flushing.

I just visited for my fiance's birthday and generally speaking it was a lovely stay. The decor is modern and chic and very clean. My only hesitation is the noise.. There were families with teens/ youths and due to the large gap between floor and door, you could hear everything in the hallway. The windows are also not blackout curtains so the sunlight may wake you up if you are sensitive to it. The breakfast was wonderful but try to get there before 930 as they start putting everything away. They also don't advertise any mid day snacks but the day we checked out I saw a plate of cookies on the counter. Not sure if they were for sale or being offered for free. :)

Note: a cab from Thames street kitchen to the Attwater was $8. a taxi from Kingston station to Attwater takes 30 mins and is about $50-60. A walk to the Elms was about 12 mins away... The Breakers is further and marble house is the furthest. Highly recommend renting a moped and driving on the scenic route of the mansion tours.

Room Tip: Choose second floor if you don't want to climb many steps. The third floor had access to outdoor patio , not sure about 2nd floor

Brian and Jennifer were efficient. We were there just after St. Patty's weekend. It is snug at a corner of a one-way street. The furniture is so contemporary, chic, and artsy. We were mostly on our own, peaceful, and private. The weather wasn't agreeable but we did our cliff walk, shopping, and resting. It is not for elderly who can't do stairs. Be prepared to do stairs if you have more than a luggage. We don't see the limited parking spaces for more than 10 rooms occupancy.

My husband and I were very warmly greeted and always felt welcome during our stay. The owners, Brad and Meg were very friendly and we appreciate them helping us with our bags. The petite queen room we had booked was more than sufficient for two and very nice, but we were offered an incredible upgrade to a HUGE king suite, which had a full living room, fireplace, full bathtub and loads of space! The rooms are awesomely decorated, brand new and clean. The Lather products for the bath all smell very good, whether it be mint, lavender or lemongrass. Waffle robes are always a nice luxury. Having use of an iPad that week helped us stay in touch more with family and trip planning-greatly appreciated. The cafe was very nice and they served delicious quiche, scones, fruits, oatmeal, etc. The mood music was very cool. The hotel is located just off the main strip in Newport and very close to several good restuarants and the Mystery Tower. Extra parking is available close by at the Art Museum. The beds are super comfy and the rooms can be adjusted heat-wise for comfort. There are several sitting areas available on each floor, numerous windows and the stairs were not a problem at all to navigate. We had a wonderful time of which we'll never forget and staying here was wonderful! We'd love to come back sometime when it's warmer out. Travelers will certainly get a lot for their money staying here, with very reasonable prices and The Attwater being well located-close to all of the Newport fun!

Room Tip: If you have a little extra money, go for the king suite, it's fabulous!

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us in the quiet season. Our suites truly are spacious and fabulous and we appreciate you saying so! It is nice to hear that you appreciated the special amenities we offer (iPad, Lather bath products, all-day coffee cafe). We strive to be an oasis of modern luxury in a very traditional town! Please do visit us again the next time your travels take you to Newport.
