Built by the same carpenter who crafted many mansions on Bellevue Avenue and Ocean Drive, the Mill Street Inn is a woodworking mill-turned boutique hotel. The stately brick façade and original blue front doors — though whimsical — should allude to stuffy interiors of brass headboards and tired period furniture. But instead, refurbished interiors are still fresh from a 2007 renovation, with exposed brick walls, steel- and wood-framed furnishings and high-tech mod-cons.
Bed & Bath
Style trumps sentiment throughout the 23 rooms and suites. Featherbeds with padded headboards and 400-thread-count Percale linens encourage nesting in the cozy bedrooms, and living areas have exposed brick walls, taupe sofas and flat-screen TVs. Lather up with Aveda products in the marble bathrooms with high-pressure rain showers.
The dining room offers a free morning spread of cereal, oatmeal, fruit salad, smoked salmon platter, plain and assorted Greek yogurts, bagels, breads, muffins, pastries, fritatta, fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee and Nespresso.
In the Area
In the center of Newport’s historic district, Mill Street Inn is a stone’s throw from the superlative mansions. Surfers bob year-round on the swells at Easton’s Beach at the foot of the Cliff Walk, where you can rent boards and wetsuits. Savor the massive flapjacks and omelets that are as big as your head at Gary’s rowdy diner, Handy Lunch. Flex plastic at the boutiques on Thames or at off-the-beaten-path shops like Vintage to Vogue and Closet Revival on lower Broadway. Afterward, channel your inner robber baron with a two-course lunch a killer bar special of three local oysters and a glass of champagne at Castle Hill. Grab a pint at Pour Judgement, which has a rotating selection of seasonal local brews, or for a more relaxed vibe, bring your own brew to pair with the comfort food at Thames Street Kitchen
How to Get There
This is a beautiful hotel. It is in a wonderful location! Very clean, contemporary chic with
nice views. Our two pups loved it and we loved that we could bring them with us! They loved the roof deck! Will definitely be back.
Big rooms with nice decor. Hotel offers breakfast and afternoon tea. Feels more like a B&B than a hotel.
Hotel is located in a great location with views of the harbor from the rooftop. Steps away from Thames St. Will definitely use them again.
