“Providence-based Union Studio designed the property with a sleek, nautical modern motif. Hammetts has four suites (approximately 550 square feet each), two meeting rooms, and an art gallery with rotating exhibits. Local artists and photographers were enlisted to tell the story of Newport in unique ways through their works, which decorate the entire hotel.”


“Guest rooms are modest in size with industrial-design touches but offer great views of the water and boating life. In fact, one of the highlights of the property is the 9,000-square-foot deck overlooking Newport Marina. In this age of social distancing, having so much space to gather safely and take in the surrounding views is truly unique and welcome.”


“Featured as one of the best new hotels to book in 2021, this boutique hotel will have 84 guest rooms with private decks overlooking the water, a fitness center, and a gathering space for groups. Part of a major project, the arena will include a waterfront restaurant and retail spaces as well as the hotel.”
