The Attwater, Newport, RI

Located right in the middle of Newport, this boutique hotel is close to the best Newport has to offer. Enjoy the hotel’s nautical themed, eclectic décor designed with a bright, cheery color palette in mind. Not only are the rooms comfy, but guests love their breakfast in the morning, too. 

Christopher Dodge House, Providence, RI

This little bed and breakfast is the definition of a cozy New England stay. If you’re there in the winter, make sure to heat up the fireplace in your room and get warm underneath their ultra-soft sheets and blankets. And no matter the season, you’ll always find complimentary tea, cookies and coffee in the lobby. 

Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel, Providence, RI

This may be a Marriot brand hotel, but the designers of this hotel gave it a unique Providence twist! The building was once the Masonic Temple of Providence in the 1900s, but the building was abandoned, inhabited by squatters, and filled with graffiti. The hotel took over the building in 2004 and turned it into a luxury lodging, but in each room, you can find photos taken of the original, graffiti-covered Masonic Temple before the renovations. 

The Vanderbilt, Auberge Resorts Collection, Newport, RI

For world-class service and rooms, look no further than the Vanderbilt Grace! The location is great for walking the Newport’s bars and restaurants but you may not even want to leave your room. Decorated with ornate furniture and home to a great spa, this is a perfect place for a “wow factor” wedding, too. 

Sarah Kendall House, Newport, RI

This bed and breakfast is perfect for the summer or the Christmas season while in Newport. Enjoy the cozy fireplaces, warm interiors, and the hearty, plentiful breakfast. This 18th century gem won’t leave you disappointed.

Hotel Viking, Newport, RI

Just a short drive away from Newport’s famous mansions, this beautiful hotel is a great place to stay in town. The welcoming staff will greet you as you make your way into your impeccable room and make sure you have everything for your stay. Guests love the live entertainment offered at night, too.

Graduate Providence, Providence, RI

This hotel belongs to Hilton’s Curion Collection, and has a gorgeous lobby to boast. Lovely wood details and ornate furniture are not all that guests here rave about—they cannot say enough about the hotel’s friendly staff!

Visitors love this hotel’s eclectic style of décor. Stay in a dazzling purple bedroom, take a luxurious bath in a Jacuzzi tub, and then grab breakfast in the kitchen painted with colorful butterflies. 

Dean Hotel, Providence, RI

Minimal, chic, and elegant—nearly every corner of this hotel seems like it came right off of Instagram. When you’re not in your room, enjoy some of the artsy décor and delicious beverages down at their coffee bar.
