When you pay $400/night for a hotel room, you expect a $400/night hotel room.

My mom noticed there was no shower cap or a bathrobe. Surely any place charging so much a night could swing a shower cap and bathrobe. The room was sort of cheesy inside, nothing remarkably ""Newport"" about it. The soap, shampoo, and conditioner was pretty generic and probably cost the hotel about 10 cents apiece. It was clean enough, but our sheets had a rip in them, the shower was old and yellowed, and the whole room simply did not measure up to all it should have been.

Don't believe the hype (or the pretty website), go stay at a modest hotel elsewhere, spend the money you save on a nice dinner and drinks, and you'll enjoy your stay just as much, if not more.

Pros: looks nice outside

Cons: noisy through ceiling, ugly/old bathroom and carpets

Recently renovated/ rooms are not huge. good location with parking. located right between bellevue, thames, spring str. with access to just about everything. nice staff. bar on site. function room available. pool and sauna. a/c in rooms. very pricey in the busy season.

perfect location, excellent parking, comfortable rooms and spectacular decorations throughout the year. food is average. bar/lounge is nice. walking distance to just about everything. finally, a place to park. rates are high, but average for this area. worth the stay.

Checking in I expected the hotel to be much better than it was since it is part of the Noble House Hotel Group. Thee checkin reminded me of a Marriott and the room, which had just been redone was fine, if you like garish and ostentatious decor. I thought I was in a vegas hotel that was trying to re-enact a by gone era. Its fine but nothing out of the oridinary.

Every year it is a must place to go to. The staff is very friendly and it is centrally located which makes it very easy to get to any place in Newport. The hotel has plenty of atmosphere. Parking is limited so I recommend valet parking even though it may take time to get your car. The rooms are quaint and my wife loves the oatmeal soap. I highly recommend it.
