Pros: The staff was fabulous - friendly, courteous and very accomodating. The room was charming, large very clean bathroom with a tub/shower and the bed was extremely comfortable - firm enough but cushy. Breakfast was made-to-order eggs, bacon, cereal, etc. in a pretty room. Location: a very short - maybe 10 minute walk to the marina and downtown. AND off-street parking, included in the price, which is invaluable given the traffic and parking situation in Newport.
Cons: This facility is in a historic building that has been renovated but, IMHO, not to exacting standards. Many of the finishes and art work look inexpensive and a little shabby. But, given all the cons, it would be my go-to place when visiting Newport.
