Great location A review of Newport Harbor Hotel & Marina
We stayed at the Newport Harbor Hotel and Marina over this past Memorial Day Weekend. The weather was simply awful, but the trip was made better by the superb location of this hotel. You are literally steps from the best restaurants, shopping and sightseeing of Newport proper, and a short drive from the Mansions and shore areas of Newport.
We really appreciated the setting. A real plus was the ability to look out your window and see the incredible megayachts docking 20 years away. A real treat. The only caution we have is in two areas: 1. it seems like there is great variation in room rates, depending on time of year and availability. Obviously, Memorial Day weekend is probably one of the busiest at Newport, thus, the rates are very high. 2. Even though the hotel was less than 1/2 full due to the weather, the rooms did little to shield from noise in the hallways and outside by the marina. I think a full house on a real busy weekend could get real, real noisy. Otherwise, we had a very enjoyable time, and would certainly consider the Newport Harbor Hotel and Marina again.
