On a weekend getaway to Newport from NYC, but the hotels there are super-expensive. This one had great prices and was not too far (about a 12 minute drive through local roads) so we figured we'd give it a shot. We brought our car, so it was easy for us to get to and from the hotel to the "city" area.
Firstly, the staff was really friendly and respectful. We had some trouble with the griddle iron for the breakfast (which was very organized and tasted quite good). One of the nice ladies who worked there spent time with us to fix the iron and help us make a fresh one. She didn't have to go out of her way, but she did and it was really nice of her to do so.
The front desk is very polite, and they promptly checked us in without any issues and asked more than once if there was anything at all that we needed. That was very nice of them and much appreciated.
There is a pool on the property, although we didn't get a chance to use it. It was a decent sized pool though.
The room was HUGE. I mean, we were astonished that it was so big, practically a small apartment. It could have been that it was on a corner in the building so this particular room was large. I'm making an assumption, but it was really big and if you need a place to lay out posters and projects (if you're on a business trip) then this is perfect for you. Plenty of lighting, a big desk, tons of drawers and 2 heating/AC units.
Everything was very clean. The bathroom, the shower, toilet, everything. At the end of the day, we all want a clean, comfortable place to sleep with fresh sheets and towels, and this place far exceeds that standard. The bathroom was slightly smaller than I expected, but it didn't bother me one bit. Wifi was flawless. Everything worked as it should.
If you're visiting Newport, I definitely recommend this hotel to stay in. The prices are very reasonable and it is not very far from all of the coolness along the water.
If I visited Newport again, I would definitely stay at the Residence Inn.
