Following a $9 million renovation, the official opening of a boutique hotel on Rhode Island’s historic Aquidneck Island, home to Newport and countless unique attractions, was announced by Hyatt Hotels Corp. last spring. The Pell, a part of the JdV by Hyatt brand, is the first of its kind in Rhode Island.
Boasting a modern Bohemian design, The Pell is intended to reflect the coastal neighborhood in which it resides. The hotel sits less than 2 miles from Sachuest Beach, Third Beach, and Easton’s Beach. Newport Vineyard is also near the hotel, while the Newport Mansions and Cliff Walk are less than 3 miles away.
“We are thrilled to finally be introducing The Pell, which is the first JdV by Hyatt hotel in Rhode Island, to the Newport market,” says Graham Jones, co-founder of The Pell, in a prepared statement. “We have put a lot of time, effort, and love into this project and know The Pell will have an enormous impact in both Newport and [nearby] Middletown.”
The 127-room hotel can accommodate gatherings of up to 40 meeting-goers in 1,250 square feet of customizable event space. Also featured on-site are The Helmway Restaurant, a fitness center, and hotel library.
