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
Beautiful resort, lovely staff - a great time! I'll be back for sure! ????. The restaurant was fantastic and the spa is amazing! You can't go wrong at Gurney's Newport Resort and Marina!! A very special place in fabulous Newport!!!!
The location is great being right on the water. The rooms were decent. Clean and neat. It's close to downtown. I will say that we smelled cigarette smoke from our room which was pretty gross. We had our 7 month old with us so we called to complain. They were very accommodating and moved us.
My wife and I were visiting Newport for a family wedding taking place on Goat Island at the Regatta, and so Gurney's was a perfectly located place to stay, where the couple getting married had reserved rooms. The views of the harbor, saltwater pool, spa, and convenience to downtown Newport all made this visit especially pleasant, and we could walk to the wedding.
