In a prime location on Goat Island, a five-minute shuttle ride across Newport Bridge from buzzing downtown Newport, the Hyatt Regency offers resort-style amenities in a quintessential New England setting. The interiors take inspiration from the seaside spot, with nautical motifs in the lobby and public spaces and navy blue accents in all 257 guestrooms. Unlike downtown Newport’s historic inns, this purpose-built hotel has uniformly spacious guestrooms with modern comforts including WiFi, iHome stereos, flat-screen TVs and dedicated work areas, plus waterfront views of Narragansett Bay or Newport Harbor from most. The restaurants take full advantage of the waterfront location, with alfresco dining at homey Pineapples by the Bay (open May to September) and drinks on the sundeck of the Five33 Lounge. At Windward Coastal Grille, snag a table beside the huge floor-to-ceiling windows for seafood favorites with a beautiful harbor backdrop.
In the Area
Beyond the activities along the harbor, a stay in Newport is all about the famous Gilded Age mansions, including the Breakers and Château-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
Loved the location...about a 15 minute walk to main street Newport, but free hotel van and water shuttle available too. The outside of the hotel looks a bit dated, but the inside is modern and really beautiful. Staff was wonderful and coffee shop fantastic--best scones and muffins we've ever had!
I have nothing but amazing things to say about Gurney’s Newport. I got married this past Friday and the whole experience has been more than I could have ever dreamed of! From the amazing staff to the beautiful location to the incredible food to the complimentary things that we received for booking out wedding there. Also the suite that we were given for the night, that was also complimentary for the wedding night, was so beautiful. They made us feel like royalty! We plan on going back very soon!
Great time . Good food . Excellent 5 star service and spa services amazing . We spent a relaxing and stress free 4 days and 3 nights . We requested early check in and our room was ready by 10 am to our surprise after driving up from Long Island . Everyone is very nice and extremely accommodating . They knew it was my boyfriends birthday and they sent us a nice bottle of champagne to our room the first night . Place is also very very clean . A must try for a weekend getaway
We booked Gurney's through Amex points for a last minute getaway to celebrate our anniversary and the experience was nothing short of spectacular. From the moment we arrived, we we're greeted as what felt like VIP's. We received a room upgrade and a bottle of champagne from the front desk staff. Throughout our visit the staff always said hello to us and checked in to see if we needed anything. The property on Goat Island is great to be so close to downtown and far enough away to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of downtown nightlife. The shuttle service provided every 30 min made it easy to not need your car but be able to access downtown as if you were staying on Thames St. We enjoyed a first class hotel experience which even included evening turn down service which shows the level of detail and customer satisfaction and attention this hotel pays to it's guests. The views are better than anywhere else in Newport and the amenities far surpassed our expectations. We will definitely return in the future.
Went there this summer for my bday and my wife bday are on the same week had a room with a balcony. Very nice very clean drinks are pricy but it’s newport. Didn’t read the fine print about the valet every time you get your car it’s $35. After we leave I see all kinds of charges on my card give them a call and get the runaround cause it’s the weekend. Call on Monday to get answers and because my wife is a smoker they charged $200 for a cleaning fee. That was the reason for getting a room with outside balcony. There are no signs no fine print saying no smoking outside. It is a nice place but watch the extra charges.
