Charter Suites

Luxury Condos in the Heart of Historic Newport

 

Our newly renovated 4 bed, 4 bath condos are conveniently located in the middle of downtown Newport, right upstairs from Charter Books. Guests can expect the same customer service and dedication to community that are central to the mission of our bookstore. These are perfect spots for families and groups hoping to enjoy shopping our store and exploring the City by the Sea.

We have two nearly identical condos, one each on the second and third floors of our building. Each unit features an open floor plan, kitchen island, stainless steel appliances and cookware in a large living space overlooking the Lower Broadway neighborhood. There are individual customizable climate control units and flat screen TVs in each room. A kitchen iPad contains all property info and suggestions for our favorite bars and restaurants.

All guest rooms have en suite bathrooms, queen beds, flat screen TVs, climate control units, extra linens, iron, and hair dryers. We also have a washer/dryer in each unit. Guests have full access to the entire floor and all amenities. Please note that these are second and third floor units with no elevator access.

The Neighborhood

Your condo will look out over Lower Broadway in the heart of Newport's Historic District, just a few minutes' walk from Washington Square, Thames Street, and the waterfront. From the living room's French doors, you can see the Old Colony House, center of Rhode Island's government from 1739 to 1901. The Declaration of Independence was first heard by Rhode Islanders when it was read from the Colony House steps on July 20, 1776. You can also look across the street at the Wanton-Lyman-Hazard House, the oldest surviving house in Newport, where riots formed over the Stamp Act in 1766.

From 1890 to 1968, our building was the home of Wm. B. Scott & Co. hardware store. After that, a long series of restaurants, clubs, and bars occupied the space until we decided in 2020 to update and restore a version of the Scott & Co. facade, returning the building to its origin as an independent, local, retail storefront.

Today we're delighted to host guests upstairs in our charming Charter Suites.
