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.
How to Get There
From Rafaela who greets us each year with a warm hug to Robert at the bar—this place provides the best in customer experience.
My best friend and I come at least twice a year usually off season to just enjoy the place. From the fireplaces in the room to views of the harbor to the bloody marys at the bar to a bottle of whispering angel at night it just can’t get better than this.
In warmer months we love the outdoor bar and even once on a summer night we danced the night away to a great DJ at the open air patio area.
We will come back again and again whenever we get a chance.
My husband and I have visited 41 North’s Fermentation Classes every Wednesday night for about a year. The food that Is prepared to accompany the wine has never disappointed. Highly recommended. Their wine dinners have been exceptional.
Stayed at this property, recommended by a dear friend. Quick birthday getaway weekend to celebrate with my family. Amazing staff and attention to detail when they learned of the birthday celebration. Gave us a nice seat in the restaurant and complimentary desserts. Food was super and delicious! Rooms were fantastic and clean. Hats off to Robert D'Arcangelo who has the perfect property with the best talented staff. The place was amazing in the winter, can't imagine in the summer - will definitely be back! Keep it up - kudos! -Ellen Barrera
I recently held a corporate event here and I cant say enough good things about this hotel!From the moment you arrive the staff is amazing. Oliver greeted my vehicle and walked me to check in counter where I met Rafaela, one of the nicest and most courteous hosts at a hotel I've ever experienced.
We had about 20 guests that were all taken care of with great attention and care. I also can not say enough positive things about their inhouse chef Jon. He went above and beyond with creating a dairy free and gluten free menu for us. Everything was so delicious!!
The rooms are clean and well kept up with. The bed and pillows are crazy comfortable! Again, cant say enough good things about this hotel! Views from the rooms are amazing as well!
This was our second stay at 41 North. Both times were exceptional. What made this trip so magical is I decided to propose to my fiance. This hotel has such spectacular views with a modern yet cozy vibe. The hotel staff really went out of their way to accommodate our requests and help make this a memorable experience for my fiance and I. 41 North will become a part of our annual tradition. We can't thank them enough for their superior commitment to excellence! If you are thinking of staying in Newport, 41 North must be on the top of the list.
