Nice moderate hotel in a great location A review of Newport Harbor Hotel & Marina
The Newport Harbor Hotel and Marina is a nice, clean moderate hotel that has probably the best location in Newport. It's right on the harbor and is only steps away from shopping and restaurants.
My husband and I had a ground floor harbor view room that had a sliding glass door that led out to a grassy area next to the harbor that had nice adirondack chairs and tables to relax on. The only problem with this great set up is that the hotel rents out the boat slips and the people who rent out the slips tended to monopolize the chairs and lawn area. We stayed for Memorial Day weekend and it was very crowded with boats.
The hotel does not offer many services, but the rooms were very clean (housekeeping was very quick) and the staff was friendly. The rooms are decent sized-similar to a Marriott property. The bathroom was small but nice looking-except for the weird accordian door. We ate at the breakfast buffet one day-it was only ok, but the waiter was very nice.
My only real complaint about the hotel was the price. They charge 5 star rates for a 3 star property, but I guess when it's a holiday weekend and with as good a location as this hotel has they can get away with it. I would definitely stay here again.
