Finding a reasonably priced hotel in Newport during the high season that does not require a two night minimum stay is a serious challenge. So by the time I booked a $400 room for a Saturday night, somehow I felt lucky.
This is a very nice hotel with calm, contemporary ambience in a renovated mill. It provides a welcome and convenient respite from the crowded sidewalks of Newport. The staff is very pleasant and eager to please, the location is excellent and within walking distance of much of Newport, the minimalist decor is lovely, and the Nespresso coffee for breakfast and afternoon tea-time is great. On the other hand, two of the lamps didn't turn on, the TV remote needed batteries, the sofa bed had not been made up, and the AC system was confusing.
Even over Columbus Day Weekend I really do expect a lot for $400 a night. Mill Street only partly delivered.
