A four story hotel with knock-out views of the harbor and a location that puts you steps away from everything. Our hotel room was a standard hotel room, size wise, it was a normal sized hotel room and adequate. Bathrooms weren't big but big enough for a bathroom.
If you feel things are lacking size wise--the staff and their service certainly make up for it. Any request we made, no matter how big or small was handled gracefully and with a smile.
$15 a day to park...every place we passed charged for parking, and some were more expensive than $15 for the entire day. Once we arrived at the hotel, we never moved our car until we left. There is metered parking on the street, but it is only good for 3 hours.
Newport is glorious. Take advantage of it's beauty. Thames street has some lovely and unusual shops, the mansions, the restaurants, too much to do and see in a weekend!
The hotel itself does offer a pool, a great deck, a lawn facing the harbor--great for sunset viewings, and indoor and outdoor restaurant, a sauna. The outdoor noise level can get loud, but it doesn't last long. You pay a lot more for the harbor view than the view we had, which was the parking lot. Our view was just fine, and for the amount of time we spent in the room, I'm glad we didn't have the harbor view. If you do have a harbor view on the first floor, you have a patio that you can walk onto. Some harbor view rooms also have balconies, a nice touch!
I agree with the air-conditioner/heating units..they are noisy. We solved the problem by turning it off and just keeping a window open at night. Prices for the hotel do vary...it's a hotel that Priceline uses, which means you might be able to bid and get a great deal on the hotel.
Kudos to Paula the concierge --her excitement in giving us suggestions on where to go and what to see made us feel like this was her first day on the job and she couldn't wait to share her Newport secrets with us--her warmth and enthusiasm added to our enjoyable stay.
Can't thank her enough for recommending Lucia's, an Italian restaurant less than a 2 minute walk from the hotel. Not only was the food outstanding, but because it was a BYOB restaurant, we saved a lot of money!. We had the Chowda at the Black Pearl and found it soooo good, we went back the next day for more! Most restaurants do fill up quickly, so reservations would be helpful..and Paula certainly helped us!!
