It's practically right at the PATH in downtown Newport with plenty of restaurants and the Newport Mall steps away. Anyone have experience or insight on the marina?
I stayed there several days after my ill fated attempt to join the Reid Stowe welcoming flotilla:

Yes, It is a great location except there is a bit of rock and roll in the mornings and afternoons from the commuter ferries. Other than that it is a great location. Path Train to Manhattan just a few minutes walk away. Great supermarket and other stores just as close. Including a liquor store that's even open on Sundays.
I make it my primary provisioning
stop when passing through New York
Harbor. Even had a herb garden outside the marina office when I was there. Great for those sailors like me who like to cook on board. Great view of Manhattan too(see last photo
in above link).
