Omni Providence Hotel

Omni Providence Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

A prime downtown location and immediate proximity to the city’s most popular tourist attractions make the four-pearl Omni Providence Hotel an ideal location from which to base any trip to Providence. The hotel’s numerous on-site amenities — including two restaurants, a coffee shop, small indoor pool, event spaces, large fitness center, gift shop, and access to shopping — all combine to create a resort-style property that offers more in one space than any hotel in the city. While a bit generic in design, rooms are quiet, clean, and many offer excellent downtown views.
Hotel Viking

Hotel Viking Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Opened in 1926 and most recently renovated in 2007, the Hotel Viking is a historic Newport property with charming period details and subtle Nordic accents. Located on Bellevue Avenue, the upscale Hotel Viking is close to Newport’s famed mansions, the lively shops and restaurants on Thames Street, and the gorgeous Cliff Walk. With a large indoor pool, beautiful spa, and over 13,000 square feet of meeting space, the hotel is ideal for any type of traveler, including families, couples, and those on business. Rooms are large with rich decor inspired by Newport’s Gilded Age, but bathrooms in the Newport wing are incredibly small. Though nightly rates tend to skyrocket in the summer months and there is a pesky nightly resort fee, staying at the Viking tends to be significantly cheaper than at other comparable options like the Castle Hill Inn or The Chanler at Cliff Walk, both of which are located on the water.
Newport Beach Hotel and Suites

Newport Beach Hotel and Suites Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Newport Beach Hotel and Suites is not located directly on the beach, as the hotel’s website would have you believe -- you actually have to cross a pretty busy street to get to the ocean. Once there, the water is full of seaweed. But this upper-middle-range hotel has some nice on-site amenities, such as a lovely rooftop deck with a hot tub and fire pit (not to mention views of Newport Pond), a small spa, and a decent fitness center. The rooms are spacious enough, and have modern amenities like flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. But this is about a mile outside downtown, so you'll need to drive to get to anything.
Hyatt Regency Newport

Hyatt Regency Newport Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The high cost of this Hyatt is probably due to its location -- nestled on Goat Island, with gorgeous views of the water and just a 10-minute walk across the bridge to downtown. The rooms, while not huge, are comfortable and contemporary, and some have fantastic views. The list of amenities includes multiple dining options, but the extra resort fee and parking costs irritate some guests.
Providence Marriott Downtown

Providence Marriott Downtown Rating: 3.5 Pearls

For families and business travelers who want offerings beyond the basics in their mid-range hotel chain, the Marriott Providence Downtown has more than most -- free parking, a variety of bonuses (spa, indoor/outdoor pool, fitness center, restaurant and bars, and business center), and comfortable rooms with nice modern features (flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi). The price is slightly steeper than at the nearby Courtyard by Marriott Downtown, but that hotel's features offering isn't nearly as complete.
Residence Inn Newport/Middletown

Residence Inn Newport/Middletown Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Families and business travelers will likely appreciate the comfortable multi-room suites with full kitchenettes (featuring cooktops and dishwashers) at this mid-range hotel, as well as the free daily breakfast and evening socials offered throughout the week. Its location two miles from downtown Newport means visitors can avoid having to pay the pricey downtown Newport rates.
Holiday Inn South Kingstown

Holiday Inn South Kingstown Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This Holiday Inn offers affordable rooms on a busy street. It may be a good option for travelers wanting to visit Newport on a budget (and who don't mind being a 20-minute drive away), or parents visiting their kids at the University of Rhode Island just down the road. Others might want to look elsewhere, as the mediocre rooms and restaurant, small pool, and lack of a free breakfast aren't big draws.
Wellington Resort

Wellington Resort Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Wellington Resort, a large mid-range condominium complex, features huge apartment-style accommodations with exceptional views of Newport Harbor. While clean and spacious, rooms at the Wellington are incredibly dated, with cheap furniture and dated decor. Apartments can be rented as one- or two-bedroom units, but potential guests should know that the second bedroom is detached from the rest of the apartment and requires a separate entrance. All apartments are equipped with kitchens, a fireplace, and laundry machines. The resort has two pools (one indoor, one outdoor), a fitness center, and a clubhouse where guests can watch TV in a communal living room, or use the hotel’s computer. There is no restaurant on-site, but the hotel is located on Thames Street, within walking distance of some of Newport’s best shopping and dining.
Courtyard by Marriott Providence Downtown

Courtyard by Marriott Providence Downtown Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Courtyard Providence Downtown is a mid-range chain hotel in a prime -- you guessed it -- downtown Providence location. It's a dependable hotel that delivers clean, comfortable beds at a reasonable rate. The indoor pool and Jacuzzi are excellent additions for families.
Mainstay Hotel & Conference Center

Mainstay Hotel & Conference Center Rating: 2.5 Pearls

In a town with notoriously expensive hotel prices, the Mainstay Hotel & Conference Center offers guests room rates that are consistently budget-friendly, even during the summer months. Formerly a Best Western, the Mainstay still retains a chain-like feel. Guest rooms, while fairly spacious, have traditional, cheap furnishings, boring white walls and bedspreads, and bland bathrooms in need of a major update -- and most smell like smoke, even if deemed “non-smoking.” Parking and Wi-Fi are free, and there is a restaurant on-site, but the hotel is not within walking distance of all the action in downtown Newport. However, it is just a few minutes down the road from the U.S. Naval War College, and there is a nondescript casino called SLOTS, across the street.
