  • Introduction

    The Attwater

    Our unique, design-drivenNewport hotel is steeped in Newport's nautical history — yet with a bold touch of the unexpected.

    Discover a more personal lodging alternative to big box hotels — yet with a chic, modern edge elusive to most B&Bs.

    Find exceptional roomsand modern amenities; a clever, all-day coffee cafe; and attentive service when you want it (privacy when you don't).

    As one of the first hotels in Newport, the Attwater is set on a quiet street just a block off Bellevue Avenue in the central historic district. All of Newport's sights, sounds and tastes — sailing, tennis, night life, restaurants, beaches, history, mansions — are all only a short stroll away. In fact, our newly renovated boutique hotel is merely three blocks from Newport Harbor and an eight-minute walk to First Beach.

    Our Newport B&B offers 17 rooms total, with eight distinctive styles of coastal chic rooms and suites. Renovated in 2012 by acclaimed Boston interior designer, Rachel Reider, each features a thoughtful blend of bold fabrics, modern furnishings, eclectic accents and sophisticated amenities, including:

    • Designer Linens
    • Gas Fireplaces in the Suites
    • iPads in Every Room
