Burbank Rose Guest House

Right in the middle of the action in downtown Newport RI

The Burbank Rose Guest House, located near the intersection of ThamesStreet, Memorial Boulevard and America's Cup Avenue, is a great spot to stay if you like being near all the action.

This inn is at the western end of Memorial Boulevard, right next to the United States Post Office, and across the street from the Red Parrot restaurant. It is only about a mile from the beach and the Newport Mansions.

The front is always decorated with beautiful flowers

If you walk from the front door west toward the Post Office, you are literally in the heart of downtown Newport.  The Newport Yachting Center will be directly in front of you, across America's Cup Avenue. 

If you go left, you'll be heading down lower Thames Street, which is full of great bars, restaurants and never-ending shops.  

Making a right will allow you to explore upper Thames Street, which is also home to many amazing restaurants, nightclubs and unique shops.

Red Parrot Bar/Restaurant across the street

This home, built in 1850, offers many modern amenities including:

  • Air conditioning
  • Cable Television
  • Wireless internet
This is a kid-friendly guest house, but pets and smoking aren't allowed.

The rooms have queen beds, and some have their own living rooms and kitchens stocked with juice, milk, coffee, tea and cereal. Each room also includes parking for one car. The spot is about a 3 minute walk from the house.


During the summer season, get a room that is in the back of the house if you can. Although it is great to be so close to everything downtown, it can get pretty rowdy at night.

There is always traffic in front of the house, and once the bars let out at 1am, it'll be tough to sleep through all the noise as party-goers stumble by (unless you're already passed out yourself!).

Perry Mill Market - just steps away from the front door
