Newport, RI Questions

Jump to last reply

Got a super deal at the Goat Island Hyatt in mid June -- $179 a night for waterfront room with resort fees waved, free parking, free internet, and full breakfast. That's for a Sunday and Monday night (of course it's closer to $500 on the weekends). We'll be driving and will be seeing a show (Good News) at the Goodspeed Opera House in Essex, Ct. on Saturday afternoon 3:00 to 5:30). So what should we do Saturday night? We aren't that far from Newport, but thought it might be fun to do a nice dinner and decent hotel somewhere "between" for one night. Checked the Griswald Inn, where we ate brunch last summer -- but again the rooms are over $300, and the food wasn't really that great. Even thought about Mohegan Sun, but don't want to spend the $479 which is their cheapest Saturday night room! Oh, and we did Mystic last summer, so probably not that. Just so we're close enough to arrive fairly early Sunday morning to give us that full day plus all day Monday for Newport.

Meanwhile, open to restaurant suggestions in Newport as well -- nice places, probably less "family oriented", and probably not the most "over the top" expensive. Quiet places are preferred, but great atmosphere. Years ago had a wonderful meal in a very old tavern -- White Horse or something?
