At a Glance
With its own marina, Forty 1 North is convenient for those who arrive in Newport by boat and a good choice for younger travelers looking for a chic retreat.
There's a South Beach, Miami quality to Forty 1 North, the marina-front boutique hotel in Newport that attracts a younger clientele than the town's other luxury hotels. Set in a Dutch colonial–style building between Thames Street and one of the town's wharfs, the hotel is comprised of 28 rooms and cottages, some of which contain full-size kitchens and gas fireplaces. All rooms are outfitted with Frette linens, LED flat-screen televisions, complimentary iPads for use throughout your stay and Malin + Goetz toiletries.
The Grill is Forty 1 North's dockside dining option that is popular with Newport weekenders and locals for meals and cocktails throughout the day and evening. Summertime brunch is particularly great and tables in the sun are a hot commodity.
The hotel is typically the top pick for those who arrive in Newport by boat—be it sail or motor—as the marina has slips to dock launches up to 250 feet. The restaurants provide on-boat dining options, and the hotel offers cleaning and maintenance services.
Who Should Stay
Younger visitors to Newport appreciate Forty 1 North's location directly in town. Those who arrive via sea love the hotel's marina.
