Definitely the nicest place I've ever stayed at. Ok, I usually don't go for the nicest places, but even my girlfriend was impressed! Huge room, comfortable bed, free wifi, great rooftop seating, nice bar and breakfast restaurant that wasn't too overpriced. Valet parking is $40 a night, which came as a surprise, but that was probably the only downside. Great location, easy to walk to tons of restaurants and attractions.

Room tip: not "ocean front", but "harbor front" is nearly as good

Dear redrandy, Thank you for the review and thrilled to know you enjoyed your stay. We certainly hope to see you and your girlfriend return. A couple of insider tips... Our valet services are $40 per night, there is a public lot adjacent to the hotel called the Newport Gateway Center. Parking there is $28 per day. We do have a number of packages available on our website many of which can quickly help absorb that parking fee. All the best, Andy Ross

Great location, a short walk from so many restaurants and shops. Everything is new and in good shape. The staff is mostly friendly. The bed was comfortable although the pillows were horrible.

The bathrooms in the rooms are inexplicable. They are glass which is trendy, I suppose. The frosting is light enough that you get a rough image through them. That's weird and uncomfortable. The big problem is that either light in the bathroom lights up the whole room, so if someone is in bathroom while someone else is trying to sleep, you have to choose who suffers. We were using our phones as flashlights to use the bathroom at night! Ridiculous.

No real restaurant.

Wouldn't stay there again.

Dear CharleyB,
Thank you for the critical eye and feedback. We are working on a solution for the bathroom lighting. I would have loved the chance to speak with you about your experience. Yes, our design is unique. It is one that many people have loved. Our restaurant is a small plates concept that is globally inspired and locally perfected. It's a great spot to sample both new and more traditional cuisine and pair those with arguably the best cocktails on the island. I am sorry we couldn't meet your expectations. I would be happy to recommend a couple more traditionally styled and appointed hotels in our market that would likely be a more perfect fit based on your expectations. We thank you for trying us out, and again happy to assist you in finding a spot in our magnificent destination. Many kind regards, Andy

We stayed here for a weekend in July and was very pleased. hotel is perfect location near the wharf, close to shops and restaurants. It’s quite new and everything is pristine. Rooms are spacious and we had a PH with a great balcony overlooking the water. Staff is friendly and there is valet parking right underneath the hotel (albeit they need better signs for the valet). Free water and ice cream is in a pantry room on every floor which is a nice touch. Housekeeping is only coming in to replace towels and take out garbage, not make beds or anything else. There is a really nice rooftop with seating with amazing views.

Would definitely recommend for a trip to Newport.

Room tip: Get a view room and if you can afford it, a PH room with a balcony.

My family of five including 3 children 9-13 spent two wonderful nights at the Brenton in late June. We have stayed at many nice hotels but this is definitely one of our favorites. The common area called the "Living Room" is a great place for a drink or meal. The room was immaculate and well appointed. Our room had a soaking tub which was a nice indulgence after a long day of touring or relaxing. Each floor has a pantry with ice, water and a drawer full of ice cream sandwiches which are a hit with ice cream lovers of all ages.

The staff could not be nicer or more helpful-top notch from the time we made our reservation(I had to call because we wanted a certain kind of room) to our arrival. There was even a special treat in the room for our daughter who was celbrating a birthday. Everyone provides such personal treatment that really elevates the experience.

While the hotel does not have a pool or gym you can use both at the Marriott next door which is very convenient.

The location cannot be beat-walking distance to everything you need.

Treat yourself to a stay at the Brenton. We will certainly be back!

This was our first post-pandemic trip, but an annual destination for us. The Brenton Hotel was the perfect place to stay. They were extremely busy and I was amazed at how quickly everything was dealt with. I do not think I have ever had faster room service before, let alone the fact that it was delicious.

The rooms were large and the bed was very comfortable. There were hand sanitizer stations located in all high traffic areas.

All of the staff pitched in to deal with the crowds and everyone had a smile on their face and a nice, genuine greeting always.

We took advantage of the Brenton one boat and a picnic meal. Everything was setup wonderfully.

I cannot wait to return next year.
