Rhode Island, Boston, Lake Placid. New York

Hi,

We are flying into New York for ten days and was hoping to go on to Rhode Island for a few days. We were wondering where the best place to stay would be so we could take some day trips to see different places. Also what you can recommend that we must not miss. Our itinery is flying into New York then driving to Rhode Island for a few days, then we were hpong to go on to Boston and then to Lake Placid before returning to New York for our flight home. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I would go to Newport in RI. The best places to stay are the following: Lake Placid Lodge in Lake Placid, Castle Hill Inn in Newport. There are many places to stay both in Boston and New York City. Boston Harbor hotel is very nice. In New York it really depends which part of the city you would like to stay in. There are many 5 star hotels. If you are looking for a down town vibe, the Ritz Carlton near Battery Park is very nice. (Not sure this is what you have in mind) I love that part of the city but I'm sure you will catch a show, etc. If you want to stay near the theatre district (although since you are from England, nothing surpasses the London theatre experience - IMHO) the Michelangelo Hotel is very nice. Again, I can go on and on about hotels in NYC. Any idea which part of the city you would like to stay in?

Thanks for your reply it is very helpful. As we have been to New York a couple of time before we have an idea what hotels we like. It was really places to stay outside New York that we wanted help with. We were looking for a place to stay in Rhode Island where we could stay for a few days and take some day trips to other areas of Rhode Island. I will certainly look up the hotels you suggested. Cheers

I've stayed at the Marriot in Newport, RI acouple of times and always enjoyed it. it's alittle pricey, but its the nicest Marriot ive ever seen. Check out the mansion tours. the staff there can hook you up with anything you need to know. if you want northern RI than there is a Marriot Courtyard in Woonsocket, RI. not nearly as senic though. the Museum of Work and Culture is located in Historic downtown Woonsocket area where you can learn about the original french-canadian settlers. Enjoy!

While I love Newport, it can be a bit on the expensive side. I have stayed just across the bridge in Narragansett - check out the Blueberry Cove Inn. It is open all year and it was the perfect location for daytripping for us. Comfortable, very clean, laid back. www.blueberrycoveinn.com

Hope that helps!

Thanks, I will certainly look into that. As we do not know the area it's very helpful.
