HH Review: Gurney's Newport Resort & Marina



Located on Goat Island in Narragansett Bay, Gurney's Newport Resort and Marina offers you a secluded island getaway from the hustle and bustle of downtown Newport while still being merely minutes away. 

Newport is known for its breathtaking shorelines, gorgeous sunsets, sparkling waters, fresh seafood, world renowned sailing, and some of the grandest homes ever built in America. Whether you want to visit the mansions or museums, go to a vineyard, relax by the beach, or see the city by sailboat, you have it all at your fingertips.

At 257 Guestrooms and more event space than any other resort in Newport, Gurneys Resort & Marina is a popular destination for stylish gatherings, both social and corporate. The simple and subtle nautical themed rooms offer effortless luxury with high threadcount sheets, rooms with balconies and a sensuous view of the bay. Ample dining options are available to you around the clock, whether you want fine dining or a lite bite in a casual setting.
