Newport, RI –
The Mill Street Inn, Newport’s landmark all-suite hotel was recently honored with election as a member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ (SLH) brand. Nestled in Newport’s historic hill area and featuring 23 newly renovated luxury suites, the Inn is offering several packages to guests visiting Newport this season.
A former 19th-century mill, the Inn was converted to an all-suite hotel in the 1980’s and has undergone major improvements under its current ownership. Over $1 million has been invested in the Inn over the last few years to bring the property to its SLH status. Only the world’s finest small luxury hotels are accepted into the SLH brand based on strict criteria. The Mill Street Inn is now proud to be part of an unrivalled portfolio consisting of 500 hotel s in 70 countries.
Suites have been fully renovated throughout the hotel, combining historic charm with today’s modern luxuries. Spacious suites, with exposed brick walls and original beams, are decorated with a contemporary style and nautical theme. While maintaining the historical integrity of the Inn, the Inn is now also a member of the Green Hotels Association, incorporating green technologies such as energy efficient lighting and plumbing systems. Gas fireplaces will also be added to the townhouse suites this spring.
In addition to the many renovations, each suite offers a list of hotel amenities including: Aveda spa products, 300-thread-count linens, feather bed comforters, mini-bar, flat screen TVs, high-speed internet access and a complimentary breakfast each morning, with freshly squeezed orange juice and Nespresso coffee. A rooftop patio with expansive views of the harbor lets guests enjoy breakfast on sunny mornings in the ocean breeze.
Dean Maki, the General Manager, says the hotel is preparing for a busy summer, but encourages travellers to also visit Newport this spring. The hotel recently launched a springtime package deal that includes a two night stay, dinner at 22 Bowen’s, a mansion tour, bottle of wine upon arrival, and a continental breakfast starting at $255.
