Mill Street Inn

Intimate Luxury on Historic Hill

Housed in an 1890's mill, this 23-room inn won an American Institute of Architects Design Award when it was transformed into a luxury hotel. Old-world and contemporary design work together beautifully: exposed brick walls, pine beams, and high ceilings are lightened by modern pine furniture, and thick carpets. Breakfast (complimentary) is served on the rooftop deck overlooking Newport Harbor, from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Views of Newport Harbor from the rooftop deck, award-winning historic restoration

What it's like

Marble counter tops, clean modern lines, and rainfall showerheads give bathrooms a spa-like, zen feel, and every room has down feather beds. Choose the townhouse suite for a private balcony with views of Newport Harbor and a gas fireplace for cozy evenings. 

Independent spirit

Civilized luxury, housed in history

Small touches

The Historic Hill experience continues with afternoon tea: high quality tea and coffee, fresh pastries, and cookies, served in the dining room. 

Eat and drink

Smoked salmon, Greek yogurt, fresh fruit salad, and freshly baked pastries are part of the complimentary continental breakfast, served on the rooftop deck, seasonally. Complimentary afternoon tea is served in the living room daily.  

And more

Book a dog-friendly room and you'll be met with water and food bowls and a dog bed. There's lots of great territory for rambles with Fido in Historic Hill and along the waterfront.
