All activities will take place at Gurney's Newport Resort & Marina, located at One Goat Island, Newport, RI 02840 (formerly the Hyatt Hotel). http://www.gurneysresorts.com/newport

Situated on Goat Island and surrounded by Narragansett Bay, Gurney’s Newport Resort & Marina offers the seclusion of a private island yet is just a jaunt from the shops and eateries of downtown Newport. Our waterfront resort is centrally located to the area’s abundant attractions and activities, which include landmark mansions, museums, vineyards, golf courses, beaches, state parks, scenic walks, and cruises. The expansive grounds offer 360-degree water views, providing an ideal setting for their restaurant overlooking Newport Harbor, lounge with wraparound deck, full-service spa, and outdoor saltwater pool. We hope you enjoy this new meeting location, in the “City by the Sea.”

The hotel is about 90 minutes from Boston's Logan International Airport and only 30 minutes from TF Green Airport, Providence, RI.
