The Pool

Grab a friend for poolside games, or take a dip in our outdoor pool. With full service, good vibes and The Poolshack serving up frozen cocktails and a regional raw bar - say 'hello' to your new fave Newport hangout.

We know everyone loves pool season, and so do we! As to not get overcrowded, below are just a few things to keep in mind for the pool:

  • Everyone (including guests) are required to make reservations for the pool. However, Wayfinder guests are always given priority for reservations to the pool.
  • Wayfinder guests can use the pool at any point during the day for 1.5 hours with reservations. Guests can extend their reservation to up to 3 hours by spending a minimum of $75 per person at The Poolshack.
  • Outside visitors (not staying at the hotel) may visit the pool any time after 12pm, but must make reservations and spend a minimum of $75 per person at The Poolshack.

Maybe it is because Newport gives us so much—between the sea and the history—or maybe it is the crazy-talented group of individuals at the city's helm, but Wayfinder is committed to the community. From the luxury bath amenities handcrafted by Shore Soap, to the local art that adorn the walls of our hotel, we are dedicated to being part of this town. That's what happens when you lock arms with talented and passionate people who care—seriously care—about craft and community.
