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!Sent on 09/13/2018

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 relax and enjoy every second because I knew Jackie, along with Marissa the Banquet Captain, had it covered. I was right, everything was PERFECT. Not one thing went wrong and if it did, I still don't know about it. The whole weekend was fantastic thanks to everyone at Gurney's from the front desk staff, especially Ashley and Hanna to the valet/bellmen - Rob, Dave, Matt and Sloan. Everyone made sure our guests were taken care of, our car was always available and welcome bags were distributed among many other things such as bringing up a room key (multiple times, sorry Matt & thanks!!). Many of our guests took the time to tell us how impressed they were with Gurney's and the staff as well as what an incredible job they did with our entire wedding weekend, including a post wedding brunch that was out of this world! I will be forever grateful to everyone at Gurney's for making our wedding so incredibly special and perfect. Like I said, don't hesitate for a second, if you're looking for a gorgeous setting with first rate staff, you'll find it at Gurney's.Sent on 01/14/2019
A wedding day set along the beautiful ocean waters in Newport, Rhode Island is truly amazing at the Hyatt Regency. The lighthouse setting for your ceremony is just breathtaking. The Rose Island Room is magnificent for your reception to follow. You can't go wrong with the Hyatt Regency and since I've been there numerous times in the past 29 years I can definitely say its always a wedding day dream!
The Hyatt is a fantastic venue, where the staff is professional and extremely friendly. An amazing experience every time I have photographed there.
Always a beautiful setting for any ceremony and the staff is very professional and courteous! This is the heart of Newport for destination weddings and locals alike.
