Fodor's Expert Review Bristol Harbor Inn
259 Thames St., Bristol, Rhode Island, 02809, USA
Part of Thames Street Landing, this waterfront hotel was constructed with timber and architectural detailing from the 1818 rum distillery and warehouse that once occupied this site—you can still see the remnants of a giant rum keg in the building adjacent to the lobby. Sunny guest rooms contain reproduction Colonial furniture, writing desks, armoires, and flat-screen TVs. Some overlook Narragansett Bay, and eight rooms have gas fireplaces. The DeWolf Tavern, several shops, and other restaurants are nearby. Thames Landing has a marina and bike-rental shop.
