This is the hotel I stay in every time I go to Newport. The beds are wicked comfy, the location is fantastic, and the hotel restaurant is a hidden gem and also my new favorite go-to restaurant. Some of the rooms have a view of the Pell Bridge, and the rooms facing the back are pretty private because there's only woods out back.
Word of advice - even if you're a smoker, don't get a smoking room. The smoking rooms are in the basement which is often under construction, the furniture, sheets, and pretty much everything in the room is of lesser quality because they need to be replaced more often due to smoke. It's just not worth it to have a worse quality room for the same price just because you smoke. It'd be easier to go outside or stick your head out the window.
I would strongly recommend the Steak House that's just off the lobby. I initially went in with low expectations because I was hungry and after staying there for a week, I ended up having at least one meal a day there. The food is FANTASTIC and very very reasonably priced. They have steak nights Mon and Tue which features 10-12 oz steaks for 10.95. Seriously amazing steaks. The filet mignon is the best I've had in a long time. Ribeye is flavorful. Prime rib is juicy. Seriously, you can't go wrong. Everything on the menu is great.
