Anybody have experience using a DSU at the Hyatt Newport with C+P, and being upgraded to something better than a bi-level suite, which I've heard aren't anything spectacular? Thanks.

Im actually right now in RI Newport in the Cambria Hotel which is a 5-8 minute drive to Touro Synagogue,
Its a very nice hotel looks like only one month old new and clean nice rooms from where you can see the ocean
https://www.choicehotels.com/rhode-island/middletown/cambria-hotels/ri030
If you book it with points you pay for 3 nights the price that it cost with money that's the way i actually bookd it it's only 10k a night and they have a sale now 30k points for $247

Does anyone have reviews of any of these hotels?
Wyndham Newport Onshore-all suites but looks like a small place. What condition is it?
Viking-is it really as nice as they try to make it sound? Also seems like you get nickel and dimed.
Cambria-Looks nice and new but more plainMainstay/Best Western seems nice size rooms but not so niceMarriott rooms look a bit cramped and need to decide if you want to face the atrium

Goddard Park (near Providence, we didn't find it so exciting)
Colt State Park - beautiful, spacious, nice sunset
Brenton Point State Park in Newport - also beautiful
Roger Williams Park Zoo (in Providence, there are a whole bunch of attractions)
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
