I was looking for a small, clean hotel for a romantic weekend with my beau and the Mill Street Inn was a perfect choice. I called the hotel directly and was able to book one night instead of the mandatory two for summer weekends as stated on their website. It is very difficult to park for free in Newport, so one of the great features about this hotel is the free parking space you get with your room. The hotel is located on a very quiet, lovely street and the view from the roof is gorgeous with plenty of clean chairs and tables made from iron instead of tacky plastic. We were given a junior suite, which I was told is their smallest room so I was anticipating opening the door and seeing just a bed and a table, but no! There was a large living room area decorated in neutral colors with pleasant and flattering track lighting. There was also a large screen TV with cable, a plush sofa (that was also a pullout sleeper), a large coffee table, a modern chaise with a reading light and end table and a touch lamp. The bedroom was a good size with elegant end tables, a dresser and more track lighting with two unique wall lamps over the end tables. Both rooms had ceiling fans. The comforter and mattress pad were made of down, the sheets were of excellent quality and there were many, many pillows. Additional pillows and a blanket were provided in the large closet as were two exceptionally soft and plush bathrobes that were adorned with the hotel's logo. The bathroom was ultra modern with stainless steel shower accessories, a bamboo bench in the shower, extra large shower head, and another additional unique detachable shower head for getting those hard to reach places. Aveda toiletries were provided along with ample towels of all different sizes and thick, exceptional quality. The bathroom looked brand new and was completely tiled (as opposed to painted). Two bottles of complementary Poland Spring waters were provided in the room. There was also complementary breakfast served on the ground floor with lots of different food choices ranging from yogurt, fruit, pastries, granola, bagels, Starbucks coffee, cream (not just milk) and a range of Celestial Seasons tea. Complementary afternoon tea was also provided - a nice touch if you want to stop in midday after sightseeing for a bit of a break and a snack. We had our tea on the rooftop. The only negative thing I can say about this hotel is that the rooms do not get a lot of natural light and the walls do seem a bit thin. We heard our neighbors on the floor above us at one point and could hear a shower running from the hallway. I would definitely stay here again.
