Location & Directions


Our Location in the Heart of Newport

The Newport Blues Inn is located on Newport's Historic Hill at 96 Pelham Street, perfectly situated within walking distance to all that Newport offers. Pelham Street was the first street to be lighted by gas in the United States, as well as home of the United States Naval Academy between 1861 and 1865.

Bellevue Avenue, with its mansions, shops, Tennis Hall of Fame, and museums, is only one block above, and the Thames Street waterfront area, with all its well known restaurants, galleries, nightlife, and historic sites, is just a short stroll down. The close proximity to the beaches, Cliff Walk, and wharf area makes the Newport Blues Inn an ideal accommodation choice for your next Newport vacation.
