Newport Harbor Hotel View-Schmu / Red Parrot restaurant GEM! A review of Newport Harbor Hotel & Marina
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Newport Harbor Hotel and wanted to share our thoughts...We got off to a bad start drenched in a downpour and greeted by a front desk attendant that had a short fuse, ("your room will be ready when it's ready, you're early"). But a manager avoided my Bronx wrath by offering coffee to warm up, nice save. The included breakfast was top notch and the servers were beyond gracious. The "Harbor View" was somewhat obstructed by the building's own architecture and not worth the extra moola. The actual town of Newport is charming and warm with a strolling windowshopping vibe and a NYC SoHo kinda feel to it's shops and boutiques. salespersons and Owners were down to earth and genuinely seemed excited to see you!! Final standout, RED PARROT RESTAURANT...GREAT appetizers and energetic servers...we ate there everyday for at least one meal...I could've done without the Sox fans, but hey, we can't all be Yankees! See you again soon Newport!!
