I recently stayed at the Hyatt Newport, RI for a 3 night paid stay and thought I would provide a review of the property. Pros: - The location is nice on Goat Island. Fairly convenient to downtown shops/restaurants, but it does help to have a car. Many pretty views of the water and bridge. - Staff was friendly and nice. Front desk seemed to try to accomodate requests (the made a special diamond amenity for my child). - Diamond breakfast is a full breakfast buffet - very good. Cons: -The property shows a decent bit of wear and tear. The lobby is extremely small and can feel crowded if the hotel is fairly full since the main "hang out" area of the hotel is around the lobby. - The hotel had noise issues. I know noise can be a problem in a hotel, but this was probably one of the worst places I have stayed as far as noise. You could hear ANYTHING from the hallway or from the rooms nearby (even if people were talking at normal volume levels). - Standard suites for the diamond confirmed suite upgrades are ok. Initally I was placed in a Captains Quarters bi-level suite. Nothing really bad or really great about it. Just one of those suites that was functionally fine but nothing to get excited about. The living room was upstairs and very small. Downstairs was the bedroom. There was a bathroom upstairs and downstairs. We changed to a Junior Suite after the first night so we didn't have the stair hazard with a young child. The Junior suite was ok as well...nothing exciting. Only one bathroom. The living room and bedroom were separated by french doors. The bi-level suite only had one small window in the bedroom so the room was VERY dark, didn't like that. The Junior Suite had more windows which helped with the brightness of the room. Both suites though seemed to show wear and tear and felt dated. - Housekeeping wasn't responsive at all to requests for room cleanings. Overall, I would say the hotel was ok. I wouldn't pay too high of a rate to stay here, wouldn't be worth it. I also would probably not use a suite upgrade at this property since I think there are better options than this one with nicer rooms.
