Great location, staff, view, and pools
Great location in the heart of Newport on Thames Street near restaurants, bars, boutiques, waterfront park, a good view, indoor and outdoor pool, huge suite with full kitchen, adequate secure parking. The front desk staff were very friendly and efficient. the particular suite we had was a bit dated as far as furnishings, carpet and drapes, but everything worked perfectly. I come to Newport several times a year and I'll definitely stay here again.

This is my second time staying here and it’s a great place. Everything is walking distance and I feel safe too. The view of the harbor is incredible as well.

We stayed in a Family Suite, which worked great for our family. We had an entire kitchen and two bedrooms, which is a perk when traveling with little ones. We loved the view of the water and the fire place in the living room area. The décor was a little dated, but that's neither here nor there for me as long as its clean. We brought our own pool towels so that we didn't need to get any from the front desk. Parking was easy and most of the time we walked because there were good dining options around the hotel. Its in a great location and we really enjoyed our stay.
