“Great Get-Away”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

Last summer we had dinner and drinks at Fourty 1 North while in Newport visiting friends. Our dinner was great, the service very good and the over all energy of the marina restaurant fun and up beat. I vowed we'd be back for a romantic get away. After seeing the property mentioned on the Today Show recently I booked a room. Though the Newport weather in March isn't inviting - Fourty 1 North is and we experienced the cozy side of Newport from our harbor view room where we enjoyed the fireplace and room service. The hotel is beautifully designed and has all the amenities one would expect of a boutique luxury property - from Fretty linens to ipads in the rooms. I can't wait to go back in the summer and highly recommend this special spot to anyone looking for an exceptional experience in Newport.

Forty 1 North is one of my favorite spots to grab dinner (or a drink) in Newport and seems to improve upon itself with each visit. In the summer, their outdoor dining and bar area are the most accomodating in town. Having not stayed at Forty 1, I cannot comment on their rooms; however, I am impressed by their facilities and staff alike.

We booked this hotel based on reviews and the available amenities. We were not disappointed, it's a smaller boutique-style that doesn't skimp on details! The hotel and room decor are well-appointed and tasteful. We chose a premium water-view room with a soaking tub and spa shower. The bed was hands-down the most comfortable hotel bed EVER (Frette linens!). The use of the iPad was a nice touch...not something we thought would be of use, but much more convenient than searching for directions on a smartphone. We also utilized our own iPod in the integrated media system.

We did not eat in the restaurant, as the more 'casual' restaurant was not open and the Grille is heavier on seafood fare (which neither of us eat). We did have drinks at the bar, which was pleasant if a bit on the loud side due to the music. With only the two of us at the bar, we still had difficulty hearing each other. This did influence our decision to eat outside of the hotel as well.

As for other reviews, we did not have to valet as it was midweek and quiet. I can understand that it would be frustrating if valet parking was required as they use the same lot we self-parked in! I also agree with the comments about the music...it was pervasive even in our room to the point we played our own to drown it out. For an upscale hotel, the loud techno music seemed a bit out of place but was the only drawback to the stay.

This was our second visit to 41 North and I was disappointed. Our room had a nice view of the parking lot and was smaller than the one we had on our first visit several months ago. It was small enough to be uncomfortable. One of the chairs was OK, but the other wasn't. The staff was inexperienced and seemed like they were half way through a training program. They tried to compensate for hotel's shortcomings but little things were lacking such as no place to put soap in the shower and no instructions on how to signal "do not disturb". No fault to the dog in the room down the hall, but I did not sleep well. The unadvertised $25 per day fee to park (even if one did not use valet parking) was a cheap shot. But the hotel is fairly new and they tried to say the right words. I should also advise that my wife liked it better than I. There are others like the Vanderbilt Grace that I prefer.

Room Tip: Make sure the doors lock and unlock. Ours did not lock and friends had to summon help to get into t...

We stayed at this fantastic hotel the evening of February 23rd. This is a real neat and unique place. The rooms are beautiful and extremely well appointed. From a fireplace in the bedroom, an unbelievable bath, this is truly a first class resort. The staff could not be any better. From valet parking to the reception area and the bar and restaurant, all staff was outstanding.

This place is for party people with a style, the hotel itself is the most stylish in the whole Newport. Interior and the people who run the place compliments each other. I will surely come back in the summer where the places turns out to be the place to go for a good vacation, This place is hype and trendy..Casual drink at the library and the deck area is another option if you want tranquility and enjoy the water view. I highly speak about the place since its been one of the most exciting vacation I ever had for the longest time..............best choice!
