Newport Marriott Completes Grand Ballroom Renovation, Wins Marriott Hotels’ 2017 “Hotel of the Year” in the Americas

We’re on a mission to provide quality local and independent community news, information, and journalism.

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.
