Newport Beach Hotel
On certain occasions, tragedy can inspire greatness. Such is the case of Rhode Island’s Newport Beach Hotel and Suites (formerly known as the Inn at Newport Beach.) A massive hurricane in 1938 wiped out the town’s numerous beach establishments. Two years later, after the sand settled, the Toppa family decided to build a new inn on the beach, positioning the property 100 feet from the rocks and the ocean’s crashing waves. Over 65 years later, the Newport Beach Hotel and Suites is the only beachfront hotel in town.
After a multi-million dollar renovation, this historic hotel reopened its doors, retaining its historic New England seaside charm. An all suites addition, with rooms ranging from 600 to 1,300 square feet, is situated next to the original historic hotel. An indoor pool and Jacuzzi, rooftop hot tub and fire pit, exercise room and spa services were added, all with panoramic water views. Displays of historic memorabilia are found throughout the hotel. Located just one mile to historic downtown and Newport's Bellevue Avenue mansions.
Guests may enjoy breakfast in the Ocean Bar and Grille, which overlooks Newport Beach. Evenings in the restaurant provide ideal moments for cocktails and light fare in the bar's casual ambiance. Guests may view the bar's 50-inch flat-panel televisions or simply take in Newport's majestic sunsets.
Meeting space is available for up to 200 guests in the beautiful Atlantic Ballroom or Newport Ballroom. Complete audiovisual equipment and catering available with personalized service that addresses every event detail.
For an added measure of comfort and safety, the inn was set back 100 feet from the shore.
