Elegant, warm, great location, and wonderful staff

Posted Oct 29, 2016 on Hotels
Forty 1 North is a dream. My wife and I were commenting that it feels like a luxury cruise ship. The layout, the design, the common areas, and warmth of the room were all very inclusive and rich feeling. The staff is amazingly friendly and the property couldn't be closer to all the great restaurants in town. There's a wonderful fireplace area across from the bar, where we spent a lot of time reading.

Lovely hotel on the waterfront in Newport

Posted Oct 15, 2016
Pros: The room was beautiful, and clean. Spacious areas in the lobby for relaxing, reading, pool table, and TV. Exceptional staff!
Cons: No coffee machine in room or lobby. Extremely noisy flag poles right outside of our windows. Kept us awake. Some mold on shower ceiling.
Beautiful hotel, with wonderful staff. Lovely location on the water with outside dining. Unfortunately, it was to chilly in Oct during our stay for that. The staff was very accommodating and even showed us to our room and explained everything. There are several seating areas downstairs to sit by the fire and read or enjoy a glass of wine. Also a bar and restaurant that overlook the water. It is located right in downtown Newport with easy access to many restaurants and shops.

overpriced beautiful hotel.

Posted Oct 13, 2016
Pros: The location and the outside deck.
Cons: lack of professionalism for the number of stars and the price.
Very friendly staff who really wants to help but absolutely no efficiency. Room service fast and food good but they had to come 3 times as they forgott flatwares and then salt and pepper and then something else. When you are charge 140 USD for 2 glasses of wines 1 salad and 1 entree you expect a little bit more than a friendly smile. They welcome children but there is no special meals for them and the mebu is a bit high end (in a good way) with a lot of flavour and spices so a bit difficult to serve to little one.

Great Location! Comfy Quaint Room!

Posted Sep 2, 2016
You couldn't ask for a better location. If you have never been to Newport this is the spot you want to be. I REALLY liked this hotel. This is a small hotel with BIG bells & whistles. Very quaint and comfy!! Staff great! Loved the complimentary bikes. Vehicle is NOT needed...very expensive to park everywhere. Complimentary boat ride was over the top!

The staff is AMAZING! The rooms are to die for... the only downside is the extra charges they squeeze in. $30 per day to park, $35 resort fee per day... ouchie!!

Although in a prime local for the nightlife and activities on the warf on Thames St, there is a valet parking fee, as well as a hotel resort fee on top of the room fee, which were not mentioned in the arrangements.
