41 North hotel in Newport

Forty 1° North's location seems ideal, just off lower Thames Street in Newport where Memorial Drive bends up toward Bellevue Avenue. Its a two-minute walk to the left to the high-end stores and restaurants on upper Thames. To the right is the older district that is home to many small, locally owned boutiques and restaurants, an area thats more of a working waterfront of blue-collar fishing boats and not the multimillion-dollar yachts moored off Americas Cup Avenue.
