US: The newly-built Brenton Hotel, located in the heart of downtown Newport in Rhode Island, is slated to open in July 2020.
The hotel’s 57 rooms and suites range from 450 square feet to over 1,100 square feet of living space.
The suites provide views of Newport harbour, and feature two kingsize bedrooms and two bathrooms. The penthouse suite includes a private, fully furnished balcony.
Each standard room features a chaise sitting area with minibar, along with a Juliet or fully furnished balcony. Room categories include city view and waterfront.
On-property amenities include two food and beverage venues, communal living room, a green roof garden, parking, and private picnic boats for guest use.
“Passion and style are at the heart of The Brenton,” said Andy Ross, the hotel’s managing director. “Newport is about tradition and fun, it’s a calling and those who answer it come with purpose and a certain spirit. When guests arrive, the goal is to have them feel both the sense of style and of the adventure that is Newport, a destination that has inspired visitors to pursue their passion for centuries, whether it’s the arts, the sporting life, history, or the finer things in life.
Ross continued: “From the floor plan to the overall experience, the Brenton Hotel was designed with the comfort, safety and well-being of our community and guests top of mind. Today’s new normal has always been our normal. Through design and operational training, we’ve been able to address evolving health and safety concerns as part of the ongoing development stages of the property.”
The Brenton Hotel is located on the waterfront at 31 American’s Cup Avenue at the corner of Long Wharf. It is named in honour of the iconic Brenton Reef at the entrance to Narragansett Bay, near the site where the America’s Cup races were contested for 113 years.
The hotel is a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts Lifestyle Collection.
