Harborfront boutique hotel overlooking Narragansett Bay, with open-air restaurant and yacht parking
The sleek, LEED-certified hotel adds a contemporary zing to historic Newport’s breezy Narragansett Bay. The Cape Cod–style facade is classic New England, but inside the emphasis is on cool tones and a modern look, thanks to Philadelphia-based architects DAS. Natural light streams through floor-to-ceiling windows and bounces off the white marble and hardwood floors. Forty 1° North caters to yachters with an amenity-rich marina and dockside dining — but landlubbers are equally cared for in the restaurant and lounge areas.
Bed and Bath
Guestrooms and cottages are dressed in muted grays and whites, and many have gas fireplaces and large balconies that overlook the marina. Luxe extras include beds dressed with soft Frette linens, 40-inch LED TVs and wet bars that can be stocked with special provisions on request. Modern bathrooms have sparkling mosaic tiles, tubs or showers, lovely Malin + Goetz products and fluffy robes.
The on-site restaurant takes full advantage of its waterfront real estate. Ease into the evening at the dockside Grill, which has deck seating and a menu that shows off what Newport does best: seafood. Come evening, enjoy cocktails in outdoor lounge areas and wine tastings on Wednesday evenings.
In the Area
The hotel’s downtown location, just off the main drag of Thames Street, means you’re walking distance to the famous Gilded Age mansions, including the Breakers and Chateau-sur-Mer, as well as the city’s myriad art galleries. Explore them all during Newport Gallery Night, every Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m. from February through December. Newport also has an impressive jazz legacy, and hosts one of the country’s best-known jazz festivals every August. Groove to jazz and soul at Newport Blues Café or One Pelham East, which has a history that goes back more than 30 years. Finally, you don’t need to own a boat to hit the water. Head to Newport Harbor and go on a day sail with Sail Newport, the city’s public sailing center.
