A sophisticated four-star hotel on the Atlantic, boasting a coveted Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Award

Count yourself among Newport’s nautical elite, and park your boat – or just yourself – at Forty 1 North. The recipient of a Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Award 2017, this Thames Street boutique hotel exudes class, cachet and old-school New England character. Atlantic seafood is always the restaurant’s dish du jour, and Newport Harbor’s right through the expansive windows. Fires burn in the hearth, a concierge is at your service 24 hours a day, and it feels in many ways like those ultra-luxe mansions up on Bellevue Avenue – except a whole lot more modernized.

How so? In a word: eco-friendliness. The management here has taken its carbon footprint as seriously as its aquatic stamping ground outside. Energy-efficient features abound, from LED lightbulbs and TVs to in-room iPads, to save paper. The property is named for its latitude, but not mentioned is its orientation: southward and westward, to let in maximum natural light. Being green is at the foundation of this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning hotel, the first hotel in all of Rhode Island to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s exacting LEED standards.
