About Castle Hill Inn
At the end of Ocean Drive in Newport, this romantic resort hotel on a 40-acre estate occupies a seaside promontory. The Victorian manor and outbuildings, once the summer home of eminent Harvard marine biologist Alexander Agassiz, contain 33 guest quarters. Request the Bridge Room or the Mrs. Agassiz Room in the main mansion or one of the Beach Houses, which feature fireplaces, semiprivate decks and full kitchens. For special occasions, opt for the Turret Suite, which provides 320-degree views of Narragansett Bay, plus William Morris wallpaper, mahogany floors and a canopy bed. The Dining Room offers seafood-oriented menus. Other public areas include an outdoor terrace restaurant for more-casual fare, a Farmaesthetics spa suite and a private beach. Access to the fitness center and pool at the nearby Newport Marriott is complimentary. In high season, private yacht excursions and launch service to Newport Harbor can be arranged.
