Fodor's Expert Review Admiral Fitzroy Inn
398 Thames St., Newport, Rhode Island, 02840, USA
A former convent, this tidy 1854 Victorian provides a restful retreat in the heart of Newport's bustling waterfront district. The inn's namesake commanded the HMS Beagle, whose most famous passenger was Charles Darwin. Antiques adorn the rooms, which have either an antique brass or hand-carved wood bed frame. All rooms have access to the rooftop deck with a view of the harbor; two have semiprivate decks and hot tubs. The Continental breakfast includes fresh fruit, cheeses, yogurt, the house granola, scones and croissants (including ham and cheese), muffins, sweet breads, and cereals.
- elevator service for first three floors
