As I mentioned on that page, I've known the owners/innkeepers of these two locations for years. I've worked for their businesses and been their guest. They go the extra mile to ensure that every aspect of their guests' experience with them is enjoyable.

You won't find any accommodations in Newport where you're better taken care of than at the Hilltop Inn or Francis Malbone House.
