The nice thing about Rhode Island is that its small size makes it close to many major airports, including TF Green in Providence, Boston Logan Airport, the three New York tri-state airports, and Hartford Airport in Connecticut, which is why getting to Ocean House is pretty easy. There are also small, private airports in Rhode Island, which can be reserved for private planes and charter flights. However, a car is needed to get from any of these airports to the luxury Watch Hill hotel. From New York or points south of Rhode Island, you’ll take I-95 North to Route 78 East, and follow the signs to the beaches and Watch Hill. From Boston and points north of Rhode Island, I-95 South to Route 78 East will guide you to the Ocean House. The Ocean House offers a special discount for guests through Enterprise Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental. These discounts can be obtained by calling the Ocean House directly, or using the Ocean House website to make reservations. To avoid the drive altogether, fly into the local private airport or TF Green and the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel can send one of its two Mercedes house cars to pick you up.
