Located on Goat Island in Newport Harbor of Narragansett Bay, Hyatt Regency Newport is just minutes away from the Gilded Age mansions, Cliff Walk National Recreation Trail, and intoxicating early-Americana history of Newport, Rhode Island. The hotel's 257 guestrooms, many with spectacular water views, are appointed with elegant interiors, while the renovated, full-service Stillwater Spa offers myriad treatments with marine-based products. The adjacent fitness center even has an indoor pool.

The Newport Hyatt Regency Hotel & Spa is the place to stay if you enjoy a classic New England experience yet also desire the most up-to-date accommodations and conveniences. While "downtown" Newport's wharf areas are teeming with fudge shops, ice creams, and bakery treats for a quick treat, dining, shopping and sailing excursion options offer plenty of activities to fill a day.

Guests of the Newport Hyatt Regency will find relaxation and hospitality galore on property. The Windward Restaurant offers the finest in seaside dining, while Pineapples on the Bay is a casual waterside Restaurant that will keep the entire guest party content, whether relaxing after a soothing massage from the onsite Stillwater Spa, playing in the outdoor pool area, or simply watching the many ships and pleasure craft sail through Narragansett Bay.

Pineapples on the Bay underwent a $750,000 renovation in 2011, and now features an all new kitchen, expanded bar seating, granite bar, and always famed sunsets. The seasonal outdoor restaurant takes its name from the tradition of Newport captains who encouraged visitors by placing pineapples from their travels outside their homes. The restaurant offers specialty drinks, wines by the glass, and beer by the bottle or the tap. Each evening, sunset is heralded with a signal cannon shot and a Champagne toast.

Adjacent to Pineapples on the Bay is the site of the July 4th Picnic at the Pavilion, featuring a full buffet, lawn games, and unparalleled views of the City of Newport's fireworks display. The Hyatt's July 4th Picnic at the Pavilion gives guests front row seats to the city's fireworks display set off from Ft. Adams. The Picnic buffet is a delightful way to enjoy America's birthday celebration each year with a grilling station of hamburgers, barbecue chicken, hot dogs and pulled pork barbecue, along with Boston baked beans, corn on the cob, fresh garden salads, classic potato dishes, bread, and watermelon slices followed by a dessert station of cookies, brownies, and specialty ice cream novelties.
