What used to be the center of Newport's commercial seaport in the colonial days, is now the hub of Newport's harbor side shopping and dining, where you can find eclectic boutiques, sophisticated and casual restaurants side by side and cozy waterfront rooms. It is hard to describe the variety of clothiers, jewelers, specialty shops, galleries and restaurants here, so head on over to Bannister's Wharf to experience Newport's niceties.
We visit Newport's Bannister's Wharf and surrounding area frequently. We love to bring our friends to stay, shop, and dine in Newport's best spots. However, this year, the noise from events at the Yachting Center has completely spoiled our last two visits. What is the purpose of the overly loud blasting music pulsating from the Yachting Center. While dining nearby, we couldn't even enjoy a normal conversation. Newport, what are you thinking? Please do something about your noise problems and give us back a Newport we can enjoy again.
Worst night we've ever spent. We travel a good deal and have been to Newport often, but this stay at Bannister's Wharf was a clear mistake. We barely got any sleep. Our bedroom window faced a large encased piece of machinery that throughout the night cycled on and off VERY LOUDLY. It truly was impossible to sleep.
The steps leading up to our second floor room were a menace.
Bannister's Wharf has a wonderful atmosphere in the warmer months. There are several great high-end restaurants to choose from. The small shops offer seasonal clothing and souvenirs. The view is breath-taking and the sunset cruise is worth the price.
