I’m not certain if it’s the hotel, with its majesty and charm - or the nearby ‘Gilded Era mansions’, with their majesty and charm - but we have loved our stay here in Newport. The hotel staff have been so courteous without being over bearing at all. The location is great, an easy walk in any direction.
We haven’t enjoyed enough of the hotel as there is too much to see elsewhere, but the rooms, bar and restaurant are great!
After enjoying the Cliffwalk, we were welcomed to check in early. Room was gorgeous and we enjoyed the macaroons. We had fun in the hot tub in our private courtyard, one of us later enjoyed the bubbles in the jacuzzi, and we had a fabulous 3-course meal in Cara Restaurant with several complimentary offerings, and we were not disappointed by leaving the drapes open to wake up to a spectacular sunrise. We had a lovely breakfast in the cafe and another walk along the Cliffwalk before checking out.
