Welcome to Gardiner House

Inspired by its namesake family’s 1860s Newport home, the 21-room hotel was completed in 2023 and sits on the water on Lee’s Wharf, steps from the famed Thames Street in Newport, RI.

A picture of Newport

Gardiner House is a luxury boutique waterfront hotel intentionally designed to welcome guests into a classic Newport setting that celebrates the iconic town’s art, music, history, drink, and love for entertaining.

It’s a hotel that moves like a friend’s home, full of art and character.

The location off Thames Street – in the heart of Newport and amidst dining and shopping – is serene and energetic at the same time.
