I must say that I was a little hesitant after reading some of the reviews on this site, and I didn't go into my long weekend expecting much. Not to discredit what others have stated...everyone has their own experience, but mine was FLAWLESS!!! Gorgeous spacious room, excellent service, easy to get to...I don't have a single complaint (well...coffee available in the lobby would've been nice, but that's just getting nitpicky).
I would also like to say that whoever checked us in (I didn't catch her name, but the blonde girl who worked on Friday) was phenomenal. I'm actually a hotel General Manager, and I used to have a Best Western several years ago. Management: This employee is the IDEAL...courteous, knowledgeable, efficient, Brand Identity...everything you ask for and more - do not let her get away!
The hotel is a little off the beaten path of Downtown Newport, but it does NOTHING to affect your stay, or your access to anything you want to do. I actually found it more convenient than being right in the heart of everything - I think it made it more relaxing to get back at the end of a long day.
Again...great stay, great hotel, great staff - loved every minute of it!!! Thanks!
