Great hotel! Love it.
The room was super nice. The hotel has two floors, no elevator. The hotel attendants will help you with your luggage is needed. They have an excellent, fresh breakfast. The best!!!

Lovely property with a very convenient location.
Great location and very friendly staff. We stayed in the Lark suite which was very well appointed. We thought the chest of drawers was showing some wear and tear and one of the sconces in the bathroom was cracked. The common areas were also comfortable and well appointed. The curated breakfast was lovely.

Highly Recommend!
We had a wonderful stay at Attwater over New Years week and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Newport. The service and ambience was perfect! The proximity to town was exactly what we wanted. Most restaurants and nightlife is within walking distance. If you prefer to call an Uber/Lyft, it’s only $6 or so. We are looking into staying at other ‘Lark’ hotels for future trips.

Heaven in Newport
Everything about our stay was wonderful. It is a beautiful place and very comfortable. Our bags were carried up the steps to our room. We stayed in a king suite with a beautiful gas fireplace. The breakfast was wonderful. I can’t say enough good things about it.

Good 6.0
Our room was small and next to the front door, in the annex. Other guests were quite loud in the early hours of a Sunday morning. We did not think it was going to be filled with kids, loud ones at that, so it kind of wrecked our couple's weekend. Staff was great, as usual for the Lark properties, but not our favorite of those we have visited.

Newport tour
Enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Attwater Hotel in Newport. All staff members were very helpful with information about great places to see and eat. The rooms are on the tiny side but everything was clean and well kept. Would have liked a second night table next to the bed and near an electrical outlet for my things. Breakfast was beyond interesting and delicious! Healthy and different food choices that I found very yummy. Parking is limited but we managed.

A gem in Newport.
The staff, the decor, the comfort, and the details were all superb at the Attwater. I was on a business trip, so my time was limited to enjoy Newport, but the hotel is just a short walk from restaurants, and downtown. It is flanked by museums, and it has free parking. The breakfast was delicious, the complimentary tea and coffee was appreciated, and the decor is fun and playful. The bed was comfortable, and the linens were quality. Best of all, the staff was attentive, interesting, and informative. I'll be back for business, and I'll be back at the Attwater.

Perfectly perfect
We had a really lovely stay at the Attwater. The decor was beautiful and the food was so delicious. The staff was super friendly and made us feel very welcome. The bed was very comfortable and the room was just the right size for what we needed. They provided a preloaded iPad for us to use with very helpful local information. We loved our stay there and will definitely be back.
