The pet-friendly and LEED-certified hotel has its own marina
No on-site fitness center or pool

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.
