While there's nothing "wrong" with this hotel, there's nothing "right," either. Our check-in was fine and efficient. My issue is really with the value - very mediocre quality for the price. The location is excellent, for sure, but the property is out-of-date, almost depressingly so - the decor is very '80s, and just doesn't hold up to my expectations for the cost. We've stayed at other Newport hotels with a similar price in a more peak season, with far better quality and ambiance.
The room...again, underwhelming. Out-of-date decor, the bed was VERY hard and uncomfortable. When we arrived there was a tray of dirty dishes and food to greet us directly outside our door - probably from the room next door, but something I would expect to be cleared away for check-in time. It remained until we came back to the room that night around 11pm. We even paid more for an upgrade, and it just didn't meet our expectations. The bathroom is utilitarian - there's no place to place cosmetics and toiletries, the shower is fine, but not luxurious.
I guess the bottom line is that I was expecting more luxury, or at the very least updated decor and facilities for what I considered to be a fairly high cost ($299/night for a Harbor View Room) - especially when there are far better hotels in great locations for the same or less cost.
