Nordic Runes nod to the hotel’s Viking name, but this 1926 charmer is all American, turn-of-the-century glamour. The Vanderbilts, Astors and Kennedys once sashayed among naval officers and movie stars in the building’s infamous old Skoal Room. Today, the debonair One Bellevue and its sunny garden patio draw Newport’s moneyed set with champagne, sustainable seafood and oysters on the half shell. Go for a drink with a view at the Top of Newport bar (open seasonally), then unwind with the Balinese- and Thai-inspired, organic treatments at SpaTerre.
In the Area
Located a few blocks from historic downtown Newport, the hotel is a prime base for exploring one of New England’s most treasured coastal enclaves and one of America’s most famous summer playgrounds. From the grand 1893 Breakers to boardwalk-style candy shops, there’s a pretty broad spectrum of sunny Americana. Head out along the coast-hugging three-and-a-half mile cliff walk for Atlantic vistas and Newport-mansion backdrops, or hop in the car for the 10-mile, historic Ocean Drive. Indulge in Tallulah on Thames’ 3-course prix-fixe menus with seasonal palate-pleasers like wild ramp gnocchi with buerre monte and spring onion.
How to Get There
I love the atmosphere. The staff was extreamly helpful and knowledgeable. Our server Clarissa was great and we will definitely come back! We loved the filet and chef Nayin knows how to cook for sure! Recommend for sure!
On arrival after a 5 hour drive from New Jersey in the pouring rain we were nonchalantly told by Cindy at the front desk that our rooms were not ready. How this is possible 7 hours after check-out time was never satisfactorily explained. Apparently “housekeeping was behind”.
This place really is a 4.5 rounded up. The location is great. Short walk to the wharf and great restaurants. Short walk (or drive) to the mansions or cliff walk. The hotel has a nice room and well appointed but small bathroom. Indoor pool with hot tub was nice. Small but adequate gym. I didn’t eat at the restaurant or drink at the bar. Check in staff and valets were very friendly. There is nothing to not recommend this place, it’s just not the lap of luxury.
I can’t be positive but I thought our first two nights were to cost $436 per night. We discovered the first night was $558. We had our own notes that indicated the lower price but the front desk was no help. Our room was only modest and not worth $558 + $25 resort fee. Other people in our wedding party go a better deal other hotels.
Very satisfied with the entire hotel. Want to mention 2 employees that were extra helpful:
Jayne at the front desk was the most friendly, polite and helpful person that I have ever
met working in a hotel. I also want to mention Clarissa as the lobby bartender, also very friendly, helpful and a good bartender
