What’s summer without a vacation by the sea? It’s time to check into one of the best beach hotels in America, as chosen by T+L readers.

No. 16 Castle Hill Inn, Newport, RI

16 of 31

In 1874, mining magnate Alexander Agassiz, explorer and part-time oceanographer, had a sprawling summer house built just outside of Newport. Set on a small peninsula where the Atlantic meets Narragansett Bay, it was, and still is, a perfect spot from which to observe marine mammals. It has nine guest rooms and suites, the most dramatic occupying a mahogany-trimmed turret with a 360-degree view overlooking the sea.
