Visit Rhode Island, in conjunction with 37 hotels throughout its six tourism regions, today announces the return of Hotel Week RI.

Hosted April 17-30, 2021, Hotel Week RI invites guests to take advantage of a wide variety of accommodations at luxury hotels, historic inns and cozy B&Bs offered at a fixed rate of $100, $200, $300, or $400 per night.

Launching during what is typically the peak of the spring travel season, Hotel Week RI aims to help jumpstart recovery for the state’s hospitality industry, which was heavily impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. 

“Rhode Island hotels – and the small businesses that support them – have been hit very hard during the COVID-19 pandemic, so we are very glad to have the opportunity to relaunch Hotel Week RI this spring,” said Matt Sheaff, Rhode Island’s Acting Chief Marketing Officer in a statement. “Last year’s promotion resulted in 1,955 direct hotel bookings in its inaugural debut, and we hope to continue that momentum to help our state’s beloved hospitality industry while providing an affordable escape for guests and residents alike.”

Exclusively available at HotelWeekRI.com, the state-wide promotion includes heavily reduced rates with a substantial savings of at least 30% at many of the Ocean State’s iconic luxury properties, such as Weekapaug Inn in Westerly and The Vanderbilt in Newport, as well as a wide variety of hotel rooms throughout the destination, including Blackstone Valley, Block Island, Newport County, Providence, South County, and Warwick. Furthermore, the majority of participating hotels, like the boutique properties Hotel Viking in Newport, Graduate and The Dean Hotel in Providence, and The Blue Dory Inn on Block Island, are offering $100 rates. New additions to this year’s promotion include the recently opened The Wayfinder in Newport and cottage rentals from Block Island Inns. As an added bonus, several properties’ rates are inclusive of complimentary amenities, such as dining credits, room upgrades, parking, and tickets to local attractions.
