Our favourite rooms
Light-soaked Suite 3 feels like an airy Upper East Side apartment, with a separate dining area tinted with terracotta. The sleek marbled gas fireplaces in the sitting room and bedroom offer welcome warmth on breezy evenings. Classic and romantic, two-storey Red cottage has duck-egg blue Shaker furnishings and a secluded bedroom in the eaves. The full kitchen and airy rooms of the warm, mahogany Seabreeze Cottage are ideal for small families or groups of friends.
Fresh-pressed, stark-white suits and Jackie O-approved eyewear won’t go unnoticed. No need to bring night-time reading, there are Dr Seuss books in every room.
No smoking throughout. Pets 20lbs and under are welcome for a US$150 fee.
Pets under 25 pounds are welcome with a $150 non-refundable deposit, and you must sign a waiver upon arrival. Animals are not allowed in the restaurant, bar or outdoor pavilion, and must not be left unattended in your room. See more pet-friendly hotels in Newport.
Welcome. The rooms are large enough to accommodate little ones, and there are plenty of activities around the property.
Toddlers and up.
At more than 900sq ft, the lofts and cottages offer the most space for families to stretch out. Both categories have full kitchens and ample play space.
Build sandcastles and forage for luminescent seashells at the nearby beaches. You can also book harbour and sailing tours, or head to the movie theatre.
There’s no pool on the property, but splashing shoreside is a five-mile drive away at First and Second Beach.
High-chairs and children’s menus are available in the restaurants, and little ones are always welcome. The staff are happy to help prep meals and heat milk. The Lofts and Cottages have full kitchens.
No need to pack
Your pack-and-play set or baby gym – the hotel has a stash.
Being on the harbour means non-stop ship-spotting, pirate-play and boat trips with your brood.
Forty 1˚ North got the green stamp of approval from the eco elite, earning LEED certification for their efforts. Paperless rooms — all newspapers and menus are presented via iPad instead — mean that the property saves 750 pounds of newspaper each month. The hotel filters its own water, which is served in reusable bottles.
