The Attwater Will Open in Newport June 1

Chic, New Boutique Hotel Under The Lark Hotels Umbrella

Rob Blood, founder and CEO of Lark Hotels, a new lifestyle hospitality company with properties located in iconic New England coastal towns, announced the June 1 opening of The Attwater, a stylish boutique hotel nestled in the heart of Newport, RI. The hotel will be open year-round with rates from $159-$479 depending on time of travel.

Currently under a full-scale renovation, The Attwater, built in 1910, will feature 12 guestrooms and suites designed by award-winning Rachel Reider Interiors of Boston. Each accommodation will offer a blend of bold fabrics, modern furnishings and eclectic accents. In keeping with the destination’s sailing heritage, design touches will feature classic hues of blues and turquoise, and then fused with the crisp pop of orange, apple green and black. There are nautical touches in silver accents on nail heads and grommets and lacquered surfaces.

Deluxe amenities in each guestroom and suite will include designer linens, iPads and iPod docking stations, Waffle Kimono robes, complimentary wireless Internet, beach bags and chairs, flat panel TVs and DVD players. All suites have gas burning fireplaces. Guests of The Attwater will also enjoy a coffee bar where a selection of rich-roasted grinds and homemade pastries and treats will be served throughout the day.

The Attwater is located within walking distance of Newport’s beaches, prime shopping and dining areas, as well as the destination’s famed Cliff Walk and mansion district.

To celebrate its grand opening, The Attwater will be offering a special 20/20/20 Package to include 20% off a stay anytime in the first 20 days of June, 2012, a $20 gift card to a local restaurant and a $20 credit towards a next stay at the hotel.

The Attwater will participate in Lark Hotels’ “On a Lark Club” program where points are accrued for each stay and can be redeemed in the future at each property for exclusive benefits, packages and experiences.
