Wellington is a Newport Resort that offers guests accommodations, amenities, and service beyond their expectations. Whether you’re a couple or a family, the location is picture post-card perfect. Wellington is in close proximity to all that is Newport, Rhode Island. You can see and hear the legends of jazz at the Newport Jazz Festival, or work on your tan on beaches that many consider the finest in New England.
Whether you are looking to be “in the mix” of downtown or take a romantic stroll on a tree-lined nature trail or shoreline, it is all available when you stay at Wellington—a favored Newport resort.
At Wellington Resort, we often hear our visitors compliment the benefits of being on the waterfront and a few steps from downtown. Staying at the Wellington allows you, for one moment, to live in the beauty of the Newport Harbor and its past and present cultural wealth.
Bringing your family with young children is easy at Wellington. Our spacious rooms allow plenty of space for the kids to spread out. A kitchenette provides an economical means to plan meals, while a washer/dryer unit gives you the convenience of addressing laundry, allowing you to pack fewer clothes.
Our gorgeous outside pool is a magnet for kids. Too cold outside, then simply opt for our inside, heated pool. In addition, downtown Newport provides a host of exciting activities, restaurants, and shops that are tailor made for families.
Look out your window. You will be mesmerized by a harbor sprinkled with white sails, a historic harbor and breathtaking sunsets on Narragansett Bay. Without doubt, the waterfront view at sunset is the greatest show on earth.
WALKING DISTANCE TO DOWNTOWN NEWPORT
When we say “walking distance”, we mean that downtown is only steps away. No hassle driving your car or looking for a summertime parking spot. When you stay at Wellington, downtown Newport is your backyard.
Seafood? Italian? Mexican? Thai? Elegant? Casual? Family-Friendly? Nightlife? No one restaurant or resort could offer all of that, but Thames Street in downtown Newport can. Wellington Resort is located right in the heart of Thames Street. Step out your door and choose from an array of award-winning restaurants, bistros, nightclubs and cafes.
Shopping on Thames Street is a pleasant and rewarding experience. Stroll our brick-lined sidewalks where you can consider the fine work of our local artists or merchants, or visit your favorite brand name stores.
