The newly built Brenton Hotel is slated to open in Newport, Rhode Island, next month. The six-story hotel sits directly on Newport’s waterfront, and features 57 rooms and suites and two F&B venues.
The owners designed the hotel along with Boston-based Group One Partners, celebrating Newport’s architectural heritage and development over the past 400 years, with nods to local landmarks such as the 18th-century Colony House and the 19th-century Opera House Theater. The exterior features wood siding, sailcloth stucco, and a stone base honoring Newport’s past. A grand spiral staircase leads from private parking to the Living Room, where a brass bar is located.
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 Newport events. Guestrooms are accented by nautical blues and brass and natural wood furnishings, while floor-to-ceiling sliding doors open to either a Juliet or fully furnished balcony.
