Great location, darling suite..

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect spot for a short stay. It has no kitchen, but a nice sized fridge, coffee maker and microwave. Aside from a lovely, clean, and nicely decorated place to land, it was within easy walking distance to all the shops, the marinas, the visitor center, public transport, trolley tours and restaurants. AND.. free parking at at property.. leave your car and see the town!

The little extras were so thoughtful..the snacks, water bottles and cold creamers in the fridge for coffee! Off street parking a big plus as well.

We will definitely be back!

Perfect downtown spot for 2

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot for a long weekend in Newport. We did not spend much time in the room, as we were there for the Folk Fest. Very close to downtown, everything is in walking distance. A lot of great amenities: mini fridge stocked with waters, keurig with lots of coffe, cream and sugar, a few snacks, microwave, a small table where we ate breakfast each morning. Overall, the room was very clean, up to date and well maintained. The owners were downstairs and very nice. We only saw them when we arrived and departed. Plenty of privacy. A step up from any downtown hotel.
