My partner Jennifer and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend getaway this summer and fell in love with all the hotel has to offer.
The weather couldn’t have been any more perfect. Sunny, high 70′s, cool breeze.
We booked a Captain Quarters King Room for the evening. The room felt extremely spacious at 429 square feet and provided breathtaking views through oversized windows of the Newport Bridge, Narragansett Bay and the boats docked in the marina.
The bed features ultra-plush pillows, soft sheets and a thick down blanket.
There is a spacious bath with granite coutertop and Portico bath amenities.

Although we already felt like we were on vacation, we felt like we were TRULY on vacation the second we were seated at this outside oasis.
Hyatt Regency Newport has outdone themselves with Pineapples on the Bay.
This newly renovated seasonal restaurant is not to be missed. You will enjoy delicious food and unobstructed views of Narragansett Bay and unparalleled sunsets outlined by the iconic Newport Bridge.
Some night there is even live entertainment!
You can enjoy time by their outdoor fire pit, where kids can make S’mores and a Canon salute right as the sun sets!
For dinner we started with their chips & salsa with a side of guacamole which was extremely fresh.
Jennifer enjoyed a 1.5 lb lobster for her main entree!
For dessert we shared the New England Strawberry Shortcake (sweet biscuit, chantilly cream and fresh strawberries).
On the way back to our room we noticed the hotel was showing a movie on their lawn (kid friendly showing of the Disney movie ‘Cars’).
The staff is really on top of their game!
Hyatt Regency Newport offers a plethora of activities including the following:
Activities Department: Affectionately known as our “Director of Fun,” their Activities Director coordinates an array of onsite activities for all ages, abilities and enthusiasms. Scheduled activities include weekend yoga, bike rentals, wine tasting and mixology sessions, and much more.
Stillwater Spa: Step into their full service Stillwater Spa with expansive water views to officially embark on your Newport RI resort vacation.
StayFit™ Gym: Exercise at your leisure in their 24/7 StayFit™ gym.
Pool: A relaxing swim, or a refreshing work out; enjoy their indoor or seasonal outdoor saltwater pools.
The Stillwater Spa is a major draw for Hyatt Regency Newport.
Surrounded by Narragansett Bay, Stillwater Spa boasts a private deck perfect for seasonal outdoor services, nine treatment rooms including a wet room with a Vichy shower, a dry eucalyptus sauna and full service salon.
A full service menu offers a complete palate of services, including scrubs, body wraps, massage therapy, skin, nail and hair care. Treatments have been carefully designed and choreographed with innovative products in harmony with five key elements: plant, water, stone, salt and air. Complete your retreat with the complimentary use of their StayFit at Hyatt facility and our indoor pool or outdoor saltwater pool.

GAY & LESBIAN FACTOR: We found Hyatt Regency to be extremely welcoming and accommodating. The managers I worked with to set up the review were very helpful and excited to be spotlighted on Gay Travel Information. We met up with another gay couple enjoying their time at the hotel from Baltimore. The two men explained how they have been visiting Newport for many years each summer and always stay at Hyatt Regency Newport. With that said, Newport in general is very gay friendly. A popular restaurant is Tucker’s Bistro (150 Broadway – http://www.tuckersbistro.com). The decor alone is worth a visit to this very gay friendly restaurant. It is highly recommended, and not only by Tucker (who use to own a gay bar). Hyatt’s onsite restaurant, The Windward, is also not to be missed and would make a great choice for date night! Click here for more info: http://newport.hyatt.com/hyatt/hotels-newport/entertainment/dining_detail.jsp?itemDesc=fboutlet&itemId=1003102. I am without a doubt “OUTING” Hyatt Regency Newport as LGBT friendly and worthy of our business.
You will not be disappointed!
