The Brenton Hotel
The Brenton Hotel in Newport, RI, to Open July 2020
Now open – 57 Rooms
The Newport experience of the Brenton Hotel extends well beyond the front door and within its walls. From the Roof Top, six stories above the harbor, unparalleled views of Newport are paired with classic and creative cocktails and small bites. And, in the marina just steps from the Brenton, the hotel's private 36' Hinckley Picnic Boat is docked, ready to whisk guests away for private escapes and intimate sunset sails around the bay.
Meticulously researched and thoughtfully designed by its local owners, working with Group One Partners of Boston, MA, the hotel celebrates Newport's architectural heritage and development over the past 400 years, with nods to local landmarks like the 18th-century Colony House and the 19th-century Opera House Theater. An engaging interpretation of traditional Newport architecture, the exterior features wood siding, sailcloth stucco and a stone base honoring Newport's past.
Arriving in grandeur, guests are first greeted by the unencumbered views and light breezes of what seems like a nautical mansion. A grand spiral staircase leads from private parking to theLiving Room, where guests are welcomed by the sights and sounds of the convivial brass bar, the casual conversation of locals after a day of sailing, and the taste of a coastally inspired shared plates menu and craft cocktails.
A standard room at the Brenton Hotel is a relative term: Guest rooms begin at 450 square feet with king beds facing the floor-to-ceiling windows. Each room features a chaise sitting area with mini bar and walls adorned with an in-room gallery of locally inspired photography featuring famed moments and notable events that contribute to Newport's allure. Just past the sitting area, floor-to-ceiling sliding doors open to either a Juliet or fully furnished balcony for guests to take in sea-breezes and fresh air.
With natural hues accented by nautical blues, brass and natural wood furnishings, every guest room is thoughtfully designed to inspire a calming guest retreat with interior finishes that evoke the feeling of a luxury yacht. The traditions of New England design are honored and accented with historic notes that bring forth a contemporary feel, beginning with the private brass lantern entry to each guest room.
Guest room beds define comfort with 400 thread count all-cotton linens from Matouk, the 100-year old luxury linen company based in Fall River, MA, made specifically for the Brenton Hotel, and wrapped around custom, handmade mattresses from Connecticut-based Mattress Concierge.
Spacious, glass-cornered bathrooms feature a full wall of natural light, with privacy shading, stand-up glass surround shower, and a wrought iron vanity with custom white countertops and hand basins. The bathrooms feature private water closets, a luxurious nod to the hotel's marine setting.
Room categories include city view and waterfront rooms; two-bedroom waterfront suites; penthouse waterfront king and corner king rooms; and penthouse two-bedroom waterfront suite.
The Brenton Hotel is located on the waterfront at 31 American's Cup Avenue at the corner of Long Wharf. For additional information and reservations, please visit www.brentonhotel.com.
