Charming B&B

5 on October 16, 2014

Everything was wonderful! Our hosts were fun and very insightful about the area. Everything was in walking distance from the house.


Wonderful stay at a beautiful inn, minutes away from downtown!

4.8 on April 14, 2014

My fiance and I had a wonderful weekend away at the Architects Inn. The inn itself is beautiful, quiet, and very clean. Our room had a fireplace which made for a romantic feel. Brian and Nick were very gracious hosts. We loved that in less than a 10 minute walk we could quickly get to the restaurants and bars on Broadway. It really is in a fabulous location! We definitely highly recommend this b&b and hope to visit again in the near future!


Newport Winterfest

3.4 on February 24, 2014

The Inn was gorgeous. The room was charming. The decor was lovely.We loved the fireplace near the bed! It made for a very romantic evening. The location was great. It was close to restaurants and other attractions. The Inn keeper's recommendations of restaurants and nightlife was knowledgable and very helpful. The minor problems with towels and water were addressed within minutes. I was surprised that breakfast was not included in the room rate. Even so, I recommend this historic Newport Inn.


Above and beyond my expectations

4.6 on October 23, 2013

After a 5 and a half hour drive in traffic from New York, we were in a sour mood. This mood was immediately erased by the quaintness and beauty of the architect inn. Nick and Brian were extremely welcoming hosts and it was a pleasure to share our meals with them and the other guests of the Inn. Not only were they fantastic proprietors, they batted 1000 when it came to recommendations for things to do. I highly recommend asking for the redwood room. The room was extremely cozy and the bed was very comfortable. We have every intention of returning to the inn.


Such a wonderful stay and overall great experience!

5 on September 21, 2013

We just spent three nights at the Architects Inn and we will be returning! This place has it all! Perfect location, great hospitality, and beautiful, cozy rooms! The breakfasts were plentiful, original and perfectly prepared; you will not be disappointed! Nick and Brian are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to ensure you're stay is comfortable and fulfilling. They are very aware of what Newport has to offer and will point out the best places for you to spend your vacation. Overall, staying at the Architects Inn made our vacation absolutely perfect and I recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Newport area!


Incredible stay in a Victorian mansion

5 on September 13, 2013

Our jaws were on the floor from the moment we stepped in to the Architect's Inn, and we're still in awe a week later. Everything about our stay was fantastic. Our room was decorated with antiques that added to the aesthetic while still being functional. We got to experience Victorian style with an extremely comfortable bed and great hot water pressure! Nick & Brian were fantastic hosts, full of great suggestions for things to do around Newport (all of which was a short walk away). Breakfast each morning was delicious and the other couples we met were a delight to talk with. We had such a great time and can't wait to go back to the Architect's Inn!


Wonderful inn in Newport

5 on August 21, 2013

After having read the positive reviews on tripadvisor, we made a reservation for two nights at Architect's Inn. We can confirm that it is as good as the reviews say. In fact, we extended our stay for two additional nights since we enjoyed it so much. The room was nicely decorated and very clean and Nick and Brian are super-friendly. Next time we are going to Newport we know where to stay. Highly recommended!


Beautiful Gilded Age Experience

5 on August 19, 2013

Having just returned from Newport, we had the pleasure of staying at this Bed and Breakfast. It was a perfect choice, as we could not have wanted for anything more.Everything was perfect.The Inn Keepers are two charmimg and friendly guys.The mansion is wonderful...the Gilded Age of Newport will surround you as you enter the home.It was nicely air conditioned, and filled with beautiful antiques. The rooms are comfortable and quite at night.The neighborhood is close to town...walking distance...but quite at night for a restful sleep.Free ample parking on their site.charming side porch and a spectacular breakfast every morning made it a wonderful trip.


Perfect B&B in Newport! Outstanding Experience

5 on August 17, 2013

This beautiful mansion is a short walk to town, but far enough away to have a peaceful and quite night's sleep,plently of parking,great Victorian rooms that transport you back to Newport's Gilded Age, when you walk thru the front doors. The place is perfectly air conditioned in the summer, and I have ,also,stayed there in the colder months ,with the fireplaces, there are many of them, including most guestrooms, going. The guestrooms, on floor 2, are large ,regal,and comfortable.Guestrooms on floor 3 are smaller, but cheaper in price.The side porch is relaxing and tranquil.to the senses. Have stayed there many times, and have never had a bad experience.The morning breakfast is simply STUNNING, never had food served so beautifully, something different every morning and tastes great.This morning meal, alone, is worth the trip to Newport and to this INN.The innkeepers are two charming and wonderful guys, who will help you with your trip planning...full of advice as to how to enhance your stay in town.Simply a wonderful experience, time and time again, no matter what month you travel to Newport.


Dedicated Inn Keeper's

5 on July 25, 2013

My wife and I just returned from a two night stay at the Architect's Inn. What a find! It is conveniently located in the center of the historical district within a few minutes walk of Thames street and the waterfront. The Inn is historically delightful with elegant woodwork and inlaid floors yet modern enough to have central air. Nick and Brian have done a wonderful job decorating the Inn with antiques except for our bed which was as comfortable as our own at home. We're truly looking forward to our next stay!
