The Newport Marriott’s 7,686-square-foot Grand Ballroom is sporting an elegant new design.  This landmark hotel’s premier event space has been fully renovated, and now showcases a contemporary coastal color palette and fresh decorative elements that evoke the sea.

 

This marks the final phase of a full-hotel reinvention that began in 2015.  From the front of the house to the employee cafeteria, renovations include all guestrooms and suites, meeting space, Greatroom lobby, restaurant and bars, and a state-of-the-art fitness club.  It’s no wonder that just this month, Newport Marriott earned the coveted internal accolade, “Hotel of the Year,” for all Marriott Hotels in the Americas.

For meeting and event planners, the Newport Marriott has 24,117 square feet of beautifully updated space.  Sixteen flexible meeting rooms are designed to accommodate corporate or social events of any size.  The Grand Ballroom seats 500 guests for dinner and dancing, and offers limitless potential for customized weddings and events.  For business meetings, the Grand Ballroom divides into 4 spaces, and can accommodate 840 guests.  The hotel’s soaring  8,829-square-foot Atrium is a spectacular location for cocktail receptions, wedding ceremonies and dinners of up to 400 guests.  Also available are several smaller meeting rooms, some with water views and natural light, as well as a seasonal, outdoor terrace.

Located in the heart of historic downtown Newport, at 25 America’s Cup Avenue, the hotel is perfectly situated for guests wishing to explore this beautiful New England destination.  From miles of coastline, to unique shops, bistros and bars along Thames Street, to the classic landmarks of the International Tennis Hall of Fame and famous Gilded Age mansions, Newport has something for everyone.  The largest hotel in Newport, with over 24,000 square-feet of function space, the Newport Marriott offers exciting and versatile venues for weddings, meetings and local social gatherings.
