Unique Restaurant at Sylvia Beach Hotel
My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of having dinner at the Sylvia Beach hotel during our stay in Newport recently. It was a family style setting with unusual gourmet dishes. We were seated with 2 other couples and a single woman, all of whom were friendly and interesting. The hotel is also very interesting as it is built around authors. For instance, you can stay in the Jules Verne room or the Agatha Christie room. Prices are reasonable. Highly recommend.
Wonderful Literary Hotel on the beach
Sylvia Beach Hotel is an oasis in an often too loud world. The rooms are furnished and decorated to compliment the author it is named after. We thought the Jules Verne and Steinbeck rooms were delightfully appropriate. The outside decks look out on the Pacific where whales can often be spotted. The third floor has a nice reading room and there is a library on the fourth. Most of the rooms have books by the authors The hotel has no WiFi or television - that is a good thing. They also have a wonderful restaurant where you have your breakfast in the morning and where you can reserve a place for dinner. A real jewel!
Monkey Business is fun here
Reservations usually necessary if this is where you want to stay and it’s the place if you’re into trading and literature. Cool hotel. Right on the beach. Mark Twain? Shakespeare? Collette? I’ve got a date set for Colettes room next week. Breakfast included and it’s family style very good. Meet cool people. For me it’s the only place to stay.
Quiet and restful with beautiful views
This hotel is right on the beach. It’s definitely an old building, with lots of low ceilings and drafty windows, but to us it was all part of the charm. We stayed in the Collete room, complete with a wood burning fireplace, private deck and ocean views in two directions. Our accommodations were clean, and the lovely old cat visited us often. The library upstairs was roomy, with blankets, coffee, tea and binoculars provided. Perfect for a read or a nap. Word to the wise, this place is not modern or chic. It’s comfortable and broken in. It’s for people who like walking around in just their socks, and those who’d rather read than pontificate. The shower/bath combo was rather short, and would be extremely challenging if you were taller than 5’11. Breakfast was lovely, and every staff member made us feel right at home.
Book Group Haven
For something like 20 years book groups of which I have been apart having been retreating to this charming and delightful hotel on the Oregon Coast. The reading room on the 3rd floor, with windows overlooking the ocean, is the perfect place to unwind. Pick an author themed room, with a comfy chair and a view (i.e. Jane Austen, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Herman Melville) and you're all set! Now ... how I wish to give, what is truly my favorite coast setting, a 5 star rating - for previous visits I certainly would have. However, the carpet in my room was badly stained (or dirty), as was the upholstered chair in the room of one member of our group. I am sure it's been a busy season, and I was told that the hotel would soon be closing for a week for cleaning, but (in my view) some things need ongoing attention. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The staff are welcoming and solicitous. I really do love this hotel and can't wait for my next visit.
