Logo   Best Hotels in Newport RI
Stay right in the center of Newport and walk to all there is to see and do.


Newport hotels are large buildings with lots of guest rooms and a full range of services, quite different from Newport's bed-and-breakfast guesthouses, inns and boutique hotels, or moderately-priced hotels and motels on the outskirts.

Large Hotels in Central Newport

Here are my choices of the best large, centrally-located hotels in Newport RI.

The 4-star, 257-room Gurney's Newport Resort & Marina is the one you see rising on Goat Island in the midst of Newport harbor (map). It has the best location for sea and city views, and you can walk to the mainland along a causeway. More...

The 3-star, 133-room Newport Harbor Hotel & Marina couldn't be more central, right on Newport Harbor by Perotti Park, only a stroll of a minute or two from Upper Thames Street shopping, the restaurants and boutiques on Bowen's and Bannister's wharves, the Newport Gateway Center, and many sights. More...

Newport's traditional hotel is the 3-star, 209-room Hotel Viking, opened in 1926 at the northern end of Bellevue Avenue. Completely renovated and updated, it features a good location, indoor swimming pool, spa, fitness center, and full-service restaurant. More...

The 4-star Wyndham Inn on the Harbor, featuring a rooftop sundeck, is on Lower Thames Street just south of America's Cup Avenue/Memorial Boulevard, and right on the harbor shore. (Note that there are several other Wyndham hotels in Newport, including the 3-star, 10-room Wyndham Inn on Long Wharf, the all-suite Wyndham Newport Onshore, and the Wyndham Long Wharf Resort.)
