The Skiff Bar at Newport Marriott

The Newport Marriott, located in the heart of historic Newport, RI, has received the esteemed AAA Four Diamond Rating. This is the first time the Newport Marriott has attained this celebrated designation.

Hotels at this level employ experienced, highly qualified staff to provide the custom service luxury hotel guests expect, according to AAA. These establishments deliver unmatched guest comfort with luxurious accommodations, extraordinary facilities and many personalized amenities.

The Newport Marriott is part of a select group of hotels and restaurants in North America. Only 1,615 hotels and 665 restaurants made the AAA Four Diamond lists for 2017.

“This rating acknowledges the hard work and dedication of our staff,” said General Manager Walter Andrews.  “We are honored to be recognized as a AAA Four Diamond hotel, which reflects our commitment to exceeding guest expectations and providing a premier travel experience.”

“AAA is pleased to recognize the Newport Marriott for earning the Four Diamond Rating,” said Michael Petrone, director, AAA Inspections and Diamond Ratings. “To maintain the exceptional standards required for this rating is an outstanding achievement. AAA Four Diamond establishments are attentive to guests needs and consistently deliver memorable travel and dining experiences.”


For more than 80 years, AAA has used professional inspectors to conduct anonymous, in-person property evaluations. AAA offers the only rating system using comprehensive, on-site professional hotel and restaurant evaluations using published guidelines weighted by member priorities. With a far greater inventory than any other rating entity, AAA’s rating system covers the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.

Travelers can find Diamond Rated establishments and inspector insight in AAA’s trip planning products: the AAA Mobile app, the online TripTik Travel Planner mapping and routing tool, searchable online AAA Travel Guides and AAA TourBook guides available to members at AAA offices.

The Newport Marriott recently completed a full hotel reinvention.  With a contemporary nod to its coastal location, the hotel has been redesigned with guest comfort and convenience in mind, including stylish guestrooms and suites, a new Greatroom lobby, new restaurant and bars, reimagined meeting space and grand ballroom, and new Studio Fit health club (adjacent to a beautiful indoor saline swimming pool and whirlpool.)  The hotel also offers the 4,500 square-foot Spa at Newport Marriott, a peaceful oasis with eight treatment rooms, a private relaxation lounge, and a full-service hair and nail salon, overlooking the Newport Marina.

Located downtown at 25 America’s Cup Avenue, the hotel is perfectly situated for guests wishing to explore this beautiful New England destination.  From miles of coastline, to unique shops, bistros and bars along Thames Street, to the classic landmarks of the International Tennis Hall of Fame and famous Gilded Age mansions, Newport has something for everyone. The largest hotel in Newport, with over 20,000 square-feet of function space, the Newport Marriott offers exciting and versatile venues for weddings, meetings and local social gatherings.
