My wife and I stayed at the Mill Street Inn on St. Patrick’s Day and loved it. Our room was a suite in the back of the hotel on the first floor.
The living room area had a wall mounted flat-screen TV, a couch with a pull out bed if needed, a chair or two, a couple of tables, and a mini-bar fridge.
The bedroom had a dresser and an amazingly comfortable king-sized bed. Off of the bedroom was the bathroom which had the best shower I’ve ever seen in a hotel. It had two showerheads, one was an overhead rain shower type, and the second was a hand held sprayer. The pressure was adjustable for each shower head individually. To top off the shower, the complimentary shampoo, conditioner, and body wash were from Aveda, which is some pretty high-end stuff.
Our room was very quiet which surprised me since St. Patrick’s Day tends to bring out a rowdier crowd than usual for Newport. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and we were provided with an off-street parking space which was nice.
The hotel is just a block from Thames Street and America’s Cup Ave, where most of the restaurants and shops are. It’s also only about a 5-10 minute walk to Bellevue Ave where all of the mansions are.
The only complaint we had was that the carpets in our room were a bit worn and had a couple of small stains which kept it from having that 5-star feeling. My wife mentioned this to the staff and they informed us that they were in the process of replacing the carpeting in all of the rooms. Sure enough a couple of weeks later they posted pictures of all the rooms on Facebook showing off their new carpeting and other upgrades.
We’ll definitely be staying here again on future visits!
