The Mill Street Inn occupies a special place in local history. It sits upon the foundation of a woodworking shop that dates back to the early 1800s. When a fire destroyed the original building in 1890, the current red brick structure was erected. The millwork was eventually converted into a hotel in the 1980s, and in 2007, extensive renovation of its 23 guest rooms cemented its reputation for premier luxury accommodations. Photos of the old mill in operation can still be seen on the inn's walls.
Lodgings come in three styles: Junior Suite, Deluxe Suites, and bi-level Town Suites. Most of the units feature the original beams and exposed brick walls of the century-old building. All have private en-suite baths with rainfall showers and Aveda spa products. Down feather beds are standard, fitted with 300-thread-count sheets, and free wireless Internet access is provided throughout the hotel.
On the roof, there is a patio that offers panoramic views of Newport's harbor. On sunny mornings, breakfast is served here al fresco in the company of fresh ocean breezes. Afternoon tea is also available to all guests daily in the lobby. The Mill Street Inn is located in the elegant Historic Hill neighborhood at 75 Mill Street, Newport, Rhode Island 02840.
