newport ri hotels and lodging

Just because visitors to Newport, RI can't stay in its famous mansions in the lap of luxury doesn't mean that their accommodations have to be anything but spectacular. From familiar high-end chain hotels to boutique hotels, those seeking an unforgettable getaway will not be dissapointed. Accommodations are found throughout the city, from Goat Island and harborfront locations to the historic hill and the cliffs overlooking Easton's Beach. Whatever lodging you choose as your destination, you're sure to be pampered and well-cared for on your next visit.

 newport offers a wide variety of hotel options

Over the years, some accommodations have become increasingly sophisticated, and many now offer high-end room amenities including luxury linens, spa services and even pillow & soap menus. Other lodging options in Newport have stayed true to their roots and offer just the basics of a comfortable bed and a clean room. Location can be a big factor when choosing your room - stay close to downtown Newport wharf areas and pay a little more or choose to stay on the outskirts of town but have to deal with potential parking issues during your visit. If it is within your budget, our suggestion is to stay somewhere within walking distance of downtown shopping, dining and nightlife. A car can be the biggest hindrance on the often small and cramped streets of Newport, a colonial city which sprouted and grew up hundreds of years ago - long before the advent of the automobile and parking garages.

On the other hand, if you're looking for more quiet and solitude than hustle and bustle, a luxury boutique hotel in a quaint area of town might just be the place for you. The point here is that whether you want nightlife and dancing or a quiet Adirondack chair overlooking the water, one of Newport's many hotels will provide exactly what you need!
