Why Stay At Mill Street Inn
A preppy boutique hotel in a converted 19th-century mill in Newport, Rhode Island, two blocks from Bowen's Wharf.
Housed in a 19th-century mill that once provided the lumber used to build Newport's grand mansions, Mill Street Inn is a cozy boutique hotel just one block from the waterfront and bustling Thames Street—and a 15-minute drive from Bailey's Beach, one of the New England town's best strips of sand. Smaller in scale than the nearby estates, and much more streamlined as well, the property's 23 suites feature wood beams, exposed brick walls, and modern bathrooms that suit a hipper crowd. Another draw? The rooftop deck, where views span from the coastal city's downtown straight to Newport Bridge.
Though there's no on-site restaurant, complimentary snacks include fruit upon arrival, afternoon tea and cookies, and candies at turndown.
Don't miss the two nautical prints by Rhode Island-based photographer Onne van der Wal, on display in the hotel lobby.
Arrive at T.F. Green Providence Airport (PVD) which is approximately 28 miles from the Inn. Anticipate about 45 minutes of travel time.75 Mill Street, Newport, Rhode Island, United States
