Very pleasant, attentive staff who went out of their way to delight us. Rooms are modern, very well equipped including a gas fireplace. Ours had a nice balcony with great views of the sunrise. Bar areas are well appointed and the drinks are generous.

Loved everything about this hotel. My husband and I snuck away on the off season for a little getaway and it was just perfect!

I love the break and chair 5 for a night out. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are well decorated and very clean. … You feel like you are on vacation as soon as you step in the building.

The hotel is beautiful including the design, the colors, the furniture, the bars, the restaurant, the pictures, the fireplaces, the lobby, and the very comfortable suites with a balcony facing the ocean a block way.

The entire staff was friendly, warm, and caring. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't mind staying here and driving the 16 miles to Newport. It's THAT Good!

I cannot say enough about this hidden gem! It was the perfect escape! The owners have seriously thought of everything...EVERYTHING. The lobby, rooms, and restaurants are stylishly decorated - think New York chic blended with a comfortable beach house.

We stayed for the weekend for our anniversary. It was wonderful! The room was like being in your own beach cottage.....fire place, balcony, rain shower. The extras were top notch - Kuerig in the room, spa quality toiletries, cookies at night, Lindt truffles on the pillow.

This hotel is sublime! Every corner is beautiful. We stayed here for our wedding night and came back for our one-year anniversary. Elegant, luxurious, beautiful, romantic...you do not need to even leave! So much to do! I highly recommend this as a getaway for everyone! Worth every penny! Perfection!

What a gem! Every part of this hotel has been thought through with an attention to detail rarely seen in these parts. From the Usb outlets underneath the bar to the heated floors in the bathroom and the option for an in-room iPad for use during your stay (and Apple TV).

Needing a place to visit and catch up with friends from NYC, picked The Break figuring that RI was a decent 1/2 point. What a great decision! This has got to be one of the best finds. A boutique hotel, with gorgeous (and I mean 'gawgeous!!) water views from the 4th floor bar and lounge.
