Stay Here: Newport Marriott


Today was awesome, I took over the Newport Marriott’s Instagram channel to share my travel diaries. Newport is honestly one of my favorite places and is just so magical. Visiting the mansions, doing the cliff walk and dining and walking around downtown should be on everyone’s list. Check out my complete guide on where to go HERE.  For this trip I wanted to share more on the Newport Marriott since this was my first time staying there — and in the Presidential Suite no less. lara-and-charlie-marriott-newport

  marriott-newport-renovation As some of you know they had a redesign last year and the result is stunning. (You can read more about the update on their blog). So much natural light and it’s so open and calming. The above photo is the view looking down from the fourth floor. The nautical theme is seen throughout — I like to think I dressed the part to match for my Instagram takeover. The view from our room was of the bay, sail boats in front and the downtown to our left. What more can you ask? A swimming pool and top notch fitness center? Yeah, they’ve got that too.newport-boats-marriott-view

As you can imagine the Presidential Suite was epic, TV’s in both rooms, and 1.5 bathrooms, kitchen, dining room table and lounge area. I would happily trade my NYC apt for it.newport-marriott-bedroom newport-marriott-hotel-room newport-marriott-presidential-suite

The hotel has Skiff Bar for drinks and the MainSail Restaurant right next to each other with an even closer view of the bay. James and I closed out our night watching the sunset over drinks. If you’re in Newport, you have to try their Clam Chowder as well as their Charred Grapefruit specialty cocktail. Something tells me I’ll be dreaming of both tonight.skiff-bar-marriott-newport skiff-bar-charred-grapefruit-drink
