TravelPod Member ReviewsHarborside Inn Newport
We really enjoyed our stay at the Harborside Inn. The room included a queen bed downstairs with a living room suite and small refrigerator. The upstairs loft had a king size bed and is where we chose to sleep. The view from the first level small porch overlooking the parking lot towards the water was great. The headroom in the upstairs loft was a bit tricky near the window and a bit difficult to walk to. But the view was fantastic. A very comfortable room albeit the bathroom was a bit "tight".
The dining area was really fantastic with wonderful views of the marina and waters beyond. The breakfast was above average including ham, hardboiled eggs and delicious pastries. Just watch out for stale cereal stored in large containers - they probably should use individual packages for this high moisture environment. Also, keeping the coffee urns full seemed to be a challenge. The free parking was a plus for this perfect location where you could walk to just about any place you would want to see downtown and at Bannisters Warf.
The staff were friendly and helpful. But perhaps not very engaging. Their response to inquiries about dining and sights was to give us the local walking map and tell us that there were lots of great places to eat. Luckily, there was free WiFi and we just searched the online reviews to help make our agenda.

... coast industrialists who were able to enjoy the season whilst having the easy proximity to Boston or NYC should an emergency arise.
The walk took us about 1.5 hours and was very pleasant. The centre piece was "The Breakers", completed in 1895 for a cost of $12 million. Cornelius Vanderbilt was the commissioner of the build for that unimaginable pile of cash.
We headed into Newport downtown for lunch and our last bite of New England lobster. Walking ...
... I can't wait for this weekend! Hopefully I can find those space bags for my suitcase because I don't think I can fit everything without them. And yes, the highlight of my weekend is going shopping for those cool space/vacuum sealed bags and (I guess) hanging out with friends and family, but most importantly those cool space bags!
Hope everyone has an amazing weekend and I will probably make my next post next week on the day I leave. This was just a pre-leaving day post! ...
... i did have the address for where i was going, i just didnt know what apartment number was Sandeep's. I had 10 buzzers to choose from. I rang them all.

Sandeep is a business analyst from India. We all bonded pretty quickly over sports, and then dairmott and i decided to get ...
... we're now ahead 2 bucks!
The chef wasn’t feeling his best today so tried sticking closer to his liquid diet. Fried egg for breakfast, fries and French Onion Soup for lunch and jello for dinner. I didn’t want jello for dinner so he cooked me up a pan of corned beef hash. Should have gone with the jello. Hopefully he's better tomorrow.
... my couch surfing host Kimberly was on hand to pick me up from the train station so i wouldnt get wet! After explaining her daily schedule she took me out on a tour of the city, showing me all the landmarks and explaining to me what she could. We then went to lunch before she dropped me in town to explore while she went to work.I walked up to brown university campus and looked around while trying to avoid the torrential downpour going on all around. The campus ...
