    Ocean House
    Watch Hill, RI
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 873 reviewsTripAdvisor (873)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi
    You'll feel like you stepped back in time once you've stayed at the Ocean House's classic New England retreat. This historic resort has been lovingly restored to its original design, down to window placements and interior wall hues. But recent guests don't visit for nostalgia's sake. Rather, they come for the courteous and attentive service staff and the secluded feel of the resort's grounds and beach. They also come for the luxurious accommodations, equipped with high-end amenities, such as flat-screen TVs, wooden furnishings and luxury toiletries. Recent guests also reported returning year after year to indulge in rejuvenating spa treatments at OH! Spa and to treat their taste buds to award-winning cuisine and signature cocktails at Ocean House's several dining venues (though many visitors said that food was expensive here). You'll find the Ocean House located in Watch Hill on the south coast of Rhode Island, about 40 miles south of Newport.

    The Chanler at Cliff Walk
    Newport, RI
    1 mile to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 898 reviewsTripAdvisor (898)
    Free Parking
    Nestled on the shore just steps from Newport's popular Cliff Walk, The Chanler's strongest feature is its breathtaking scenery. But there are plenty more compelling reasons to stay here. For one, the rooms are designed and named for royalty – the Louis XIV and the English Tudor suites are among the most dramatic. Despite its regal decor, each comes appointed with modern amenities like Fresh bath products, free Wi-Fi access, wet bars, heated bathroom floors and DVD players. Recent guests praise the hotel's easy access to the picturesque Cliff Walk and tasty cuisine served at Cara, the crown jewel of the property's three dining venues. The Chanler's attentive staff and romantic, tranquil setting also wins over visitors. Though a stay at the hotel will surely thin out your wallet, previous visitors say the indulgence is well worth the cost.

    Guests have been coming to the Weekapaug Inn for a quiet, secluded getaway since it opened in 1899. A member of Relais & Chateâux, the hotel attracts guests to the peninsula on Quonochontaug Pond for the views, but according to recent visitors, they return because of the helpful staff and unexpected amenities. Guests can relax on the 2 miles of private beach, take a scenic tour around the large pond with the staff naturalist or use the complimentary cruiser bikes to explore Weekapaug. Visitors who would rather stay close by can take a dip in the lap pool (open seasonally), play lawn games like squash or work up a sweat in the fitness center. When it's time to sleep, accommodations include vintage pieces from the original Weekapaug Inn, a guest pantry with free snacks and complimentary Wi-Fi access. For many, the highlight of the inn is the restaurant. Previous visitors applauded not only the service, but the outstanding food. Visitors also note they were impressed by the level of service, saying that each staff member ensured that no detail was overlooked. You can find the Weekapaug Inn about 50 miles southwest of Providence, Rhode Island.

    Castle Hill Inn
    Newport, RI
    3.2 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 827 reviewsTripAdvisor (827)

    Once a summer "cottage" to a wealthy scientist and explorer, Castle Hill Inn is now one of the most exclusive collections of accommodations in Newport. The Inn and surrounding beach cottages are decorated with an aristocratic charm typical of the seaport's mansions, with perks like a private beach and complimentary breakfast and afternoon tea. Cottages feature cool blue, green and yellow tones reflective of the natural seaside setting and come furnished with high-end amenities, like plush linens and rainfall shower heads. But what continually wins over guests are the scenes of Narragansett Bay and the surrounding coastline. Recent visitors say the vistas are best enjoyed from the Inn's Adirondack chairs perched on the lawn. Previous guests also rave about the delectable cuisine served at The Dining Room. The only potential drawback lies in the location. The Castle Hill Inn sits about 5 miles outside of town, so you'll need a car if you're planning lots of sightseeing. On the upside, if you are a member of Relais & Châteaux's Club 5C, you're eligible for free perks, such as complimentary room upgrades.

    Forty 1° North
    Newport, RI
    0.6 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 709 reviewsTripAdvisor (709)
    Free WiFi
    This modern boutique hotel is a bit of a maverick when compared to the other traditional New England properties around town. Accommodations here are high-tech, with iPod-integrated media systems and in-room iPads that download complimentary newspapers for guests every day. Plus, guests here are pampered with standard luxurious amenities too, like Frette bedding, MALIN+GOETZ bath products and gas fireplaces. The LEED-certified hotel is also eco-conscious, with low-flow shower heads and LED and CFL light bulbs in the light fixtures. But there's a pinch of classic Newport to the Forty 1° North formula, too; the private marina is available for the visitors with their yacht in tow. Most recent guests rave about the boutique's energetic, young vibe, and praise the outstanding service. Previous visitors also compliment Forty 1° North's two on-site dining venues; however, some do caution the entree costs are a tad expensive. The hotel's downtown location on Thames Street is also a crowd-pleaser.

The hotel's restaurant, Backstage Kitchen + Bar, is also a big hit among locals and recent guests, who love the establishment's American cuisine. Visitors also appreciate Hotel Providence's convenient locale – it's nestled in the heart of the Arts and Entertainment District in downtown Providence, Rhode Island. However, beware of expensive valet parking fees if you arrive with a vehicle.
