  The harbor-side Brenton Hotel is the latest luxury option in downtown Newport. Suite-sized rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows looking out on the water or the town. Dogs are welcome—and they even have their own concierge. Get acquainted with your surroundings on complimentary bikes. If it’s a more intense workout you’re after, have a Peloton delivered to your room, followed by an in-room spa treatment. In the evening, star-gaze on the rooftop bar.
There’s a pretty good reason why the Brenton Hotel’s on-site restaurant is called The
Living Room. Its comfy furnishings and casual atmosphere are reflected in a menu that features pork belly steam buns, grilled octopus, bacon-wrapped bourbon barbecue salmon and a deluxe lobster roll. After dinner, head to the rooftop for signature libations and unobstructed views in three directions. The next morning, start your day with a breakfast
sandwich or burrito, eggs Copenhagen (with pastrami-style smoked salmon), or loaded tots. If you plan to picnic later in the day, the restaurant will pack a charcuterie board with cheese, a baguette, fruit and spreads.
For the best off-the-beaten-path places to eat, let the locals lead the way. On the Rhode Island Red Food Newport Neighborhood Tour, you’ll sample specialties at six ethnic and favorite hometown eateries. Total walking distance is only a mile.
