  • I had (and am still having) a very poor experience with the Hyatt Regency in Newport. My parents were kind enough to host a post-wedding brunch here for our wedding guests. The planning process of the brunch went rather smoothly, but the aftermath has been awful. The Hyatt sent us an email saying that our brunch count was over the contracted amount, which may have been true, but without speaking to us or getting our approval, deducted over $5,000 additional from my personal checking account. An account that was never authorized for payment, thus over-drawing the account while I was in Europe on my honeymoon. So, not only was I in a financial pickle abroad, I also was very confused about the additional charges that we never spoke about or authorized. The Hyatt claimed that they "could not find" the contract with the correct credit card information on it, so I forwarded them the email correspondence and proof of contract. Clearly, backed into a corner and very much in the wrong, they se... Read more

  • As my husband and I sit down to review our wedding weekend (9/6/19-9/8/19) at Gurney's Newport we don't even know where to begin. It was nothing short of amazing and we have Jackie and the entire staff at Gurney's to thank. Coming from NY, the Gurney's name sells itself but the team went above and beyond and provided top tier personal and professional 5 star services. Not only were the grounds and views unbelievable so was the food and service. We planned 3 days of events at Gurney's for our wedding weekend from NYC. Planning an entire weekend for 200 guests from out of state was not easy but Jackie (Catering Sales Manager) made it extremely seamless. Talking to Jackie is so fun and when I got stressed her attitude made me feel better and reminded me of the importance of the weekend. We instantly clicked and felt like she was a part of our family. We hosted our rehearsal dinner in Scarpetta and the food was delicious and the staff was top notch. The views from the private room we... Read more

  • My son and my daughter-in-law had their wedding at Gurney's Resort in Newport this past weekend. I can't say enough good things about our experience there. The quality of service, food, professionalism of the teams, and over all experience at Gurney's was impeccable! Everyone there was truly amazing and I would recommend this venue to everyone & anyone looking to have their wedding there! Their wedding was absolutely perfect from beginning to end.

  • Getting married at Gurney's Newport was amazing, ten stars across the board! From our first meet and greet to the final goodbye was said the morning after, everything was perfect. The team's professionalism and attention to detail was superb during the entire planning process. Jacquelyn was there for every step, even for my many after-hour questions and crazy ideas. During the day of the event, Jacquelyn and her team had every aspect covered. Even when the wind kicked up during the ceremony, they dropped everything (literally their radio and name tag) and were there to help me get down the aisle without blowing away. The location was beyond perfect, on the lawn with the bridge in the background was beyond perfect in every way. The venue it’s self was beautiful, inside and out. And the food – it was beyond what we expected, guests are still raving about their meals. We had the opportunity to have an after-party which was also very accommodating from food to the entertainment of the ... Read more

  • My husband I got married in August 2019 at Gurney's Newport Resort & Marina and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! From our first planning meeting with Amira to our final details meeting with the banquet staff we were impressed with their communication, promptness, and care for our wants/needs. There was never a doubt everything would be perfect. The food was phenomenal, especially the Filet Mignon, which my guests are still talking about! On top of hosting our ceremony, reception, and farewell brunch at Gurney's, many of our guests also stayed on the property. I have heard nothing but rave reviews from all hotel guests about how friendly and accommodating the staff was! As a bride all you want is for your guests to have an unforgettable time, and Gurney's Newport Resort & Marina delivered. They made my job as bride easy!

  • Don't hesitate for a second! We had our wedding here this past New Years Eve and it was a dream come true. We had a bumpy start, but Gurney's was our top choice for our wedding as it has been a special place for us of NYE the past 10 years so we were beyond excited when the date opened up. Once Jackie hit the scene it was absolute perfection. I can't say enough positive about Jackie... she saved my sanity on multiple occasions, made me feel SO comfortable with everything from start to finish and became a friend throughout the craziness of wedding planning. Jackie was such a pleasure to work with, I genuinely miss talking to her weekly. She made sure I was on top of everything, letting me know what I needed to do by when and gave me plenty of information about next steps, advice if I needed it and was a true expert. I will never be able to thank her enough for helping make our wedding the best day of our lives and the process truly enjoyable and fun. Come wedding weekend I was able to r... Read more

  • I have nothing but amazing things to say about Gurney’s Newport. I got married this past Friday and the whole experience has been more than I could have ever dreamed of! From the amazing staff to the beautiful location to the incredible food to the complimentary things that we received for booking out wedding there. Also the suite that we were given for the night, that was also complimentary for the wedding night, was so beautiful. They made us feel like royalty! We plan on going back very soon!

  • We had our wedding at Gurney's in Newport this past September. It was a destination wedding weekend for us with 140 guests, many who stayed at Gurney's with us. Everything was beyond beautiful. The location on the water is stunning. Amira, Nicole, Kelly, Madalyn and the entire staff worked with us from start to finish to make sure our weekend was a perfect 10. Everything the day of ran flawlessly, which made it so that we never had to worry about anything except having a great time. This was a second wedding for both of us, so many of our guests have been to a number of weddings before and I can't tell you the number of people who said that this was the best wedding that they had ever been to and how they can't wait to return to Newport and Gurney's.

  • Our wedding at Gurney's was an absolute dream. Between the venue, food, drinks, views....you name it! Our wedding coordinator, Jacquelyn, was beyond professional, responsive and organized throughout the entire planning process and ensured our wedding day was seamless! I honestly didn't have a single worry during our wedding day because I knew we were in great hands. I highly recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a Newport wedding!

  • Our wedding at Gurneys Newport was a 10 star experience. The team's professionalism and attentiveness to detail helped put us at ease during the planning process. They were there for us every step of the way and answered any question or concern we had. During the day of, the staff was there to ensure the day went as planned and everything was perfect! We had our reception on the front lawn overlooking the bridge and lighthouse while Newport's famous sunset painted the sky. The wedding venue itself is beautiful with a modern, updated ballroom overlooking the water. The food was delicious and the venue had plenty of options for us to choose from. Our out of town guests loved staying at Gurneys and enjoyed the property. The staff truly was amazing and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding weekend. We can't wait to come back and visit!

  • We just got married on labor day weekend 09/01/19. We went to 7 places in Newport for venue haunting and fell immediately in love with Gurney's. It's an all-inclusive resort so the guests can stay where the ceremony and reception take place. Staff, especially our coordinator Amira were very helpful and able to calm me down on the wedding day. They have both ourdoor ceremony plan and backup indoor plan. The food was amazing. The plating wasn't ideal at the beginning, but the chef was able to help us create what we like. In general Gurney's is very flexible and made our dream come true. I love that they only do one wedding at a time. Amazing amazing amazing.

  • We had our ceremony and reception at Gurney's in September. Our ceremony was on the North Lawn and reception was in the Rose Island Ballroom. First of all, we booked Gurney's before they had done all of the renovations, and the hotels updates are beyond expectation, even from the renderings. They did a wonderful job turning this hotel into a magical modern weekend retreat. The guest services at the resort all weekend from bell hop to event manager were unparalleled. The views are breathtaking from both ceremony and reception sites, the food was phenomenal, the wait staff was accommodating and our event manager, Amira, helped us make the day unique. They were very flexible and accommodating when we were designing the menu as well as the flow of the event. Two aspects that they need to work on are communication/responsiveness to questions throughout the planning process, and timeliness of delivery of the main course.

  • We chose Gurney's for our wedding room block and were extremely happy with the planning process and our stay. Nicole and her team were responsive, accommodating and welcoming. The room block was easy to secure and reservations for are guests were easily made online or by calling the hotel directly. The Gurney's staff made the bride and groom feel special and welcomed with many surprises and treats. They even gave the bride complimentary ride to her wedding venue in style - a Tesla! The price is on the higher end but you truly feel like you are at a resort on an island. You are away from downtown but just a short shuttle or boat ride away (both provided by Gurney's).
