Newport Mansions
Enjoy Our Signature Continental Breakfast

Elegant weekends in historic Newport, RI B&B, from $154/night

By Sarah Pascarella, Staff - October17, 2006


The Admiral Fitzroy Inn, bed and breakfast in Newport, Rhode Island, is offering discounted packages for fall getaways. The inn's "Two Night Package" features accommodations, dining discounts, and a historic mansion tour from $154 per night, with a two-night minimum stay, for a total package price of $308.


Newport, well-known for its estates, is a festive place to weekend before the holidays. Some of the mansions get decked out in holiday finery with tours and tree lightings, the city hosts its first-ever Restaurant Week, and there are plenty of cultural activities, from gallery talks to concerts.


The package


The Two Night Package includes:


* Two nights' accommodations

Is this a good deal?


I priced the package's components one by one against the cost of the promotion's price. After checking each item separately, I found the package will save you $52 over buying items a la carte.
