Classic Boutique

For an inspired vacation in a premier location, look no further than the Newport Bay Club and Hotel. Nestled between the shores of Newport Harbor and the eateries, boutiques, and galleries of Thames Street, our spacious suite hotel puts you in the heart of downtown—and within walking distance of First Beach, the Mansions, and more.

Season after season, no other hotel brings you closer to the beauty and bounty of Newport.
