The Gilded Hotel of Lark Hotels is walking distance from nearly anywhere in Newport, surrounded by the water, boutiques, fine dining, local attractions, art museums, and so much more. Gilded has been recently renovated into a luxurious, 17 bedroom boutique hotel which has a modern take on the Gilded Age. The Gilded age was the 1870-1990 era, known for it’s lavish decor and rapid economic growth, this was the height of the Newport Rhode Island expansion. During renovation inspiration was drawn from Rococo, Beaux Arts with extravagant furnishings, as well as bright, bold colors and playful use of patterns. Ornate mirrors, lacquered surfaces, and gold accents create a one of a kind boutique hotel full of life.

Interior Design

During my Newport stay I was welcomed to a glamorous King Deluxe room. The room is perfect size for myself with a spacious bathroom. Breakfast is served every morning and consists of a small plate spread with scrumptious fruits, baked goods, and a plethora of fresh ingredients. It awakens the mind for a glorious day ahead, as the breakfast area blossoms with sunshine in the morning. Offering deep, plum walls and dainty two person seating, it’s truly one of a kind.


Small Plate Breakfast

A guest lounge consists of bright colors and patterns, that are a must see for everyone in town and total decor goals! The lounge itself certainly kept me entertained, I may even draw some inspiration from it on my next interior project. Bath amenities by Lather were supplied that held heavenly, soothing scents. Along with free wifi, an iPad is loaned to each room, focusing on Newport attractions, dining information, and more. Waffle kimono robes really added the perfect touch to a relaxing trip and made me feel so welcomed.

Gilded Boutique also offers a secluded patio with lounging spaces and croquet practice green along with a billiards room featuring white lacquered and black velvet pool table.

The Billiard Room


The Gilded is perfect for a stay in Newport, especially travelers looking for a luxurious, unique atmosphere. I highly recommend this pleasant boutique hotel. If the exquisite decorations aren’t enough to seduce you – the Newport sights will be! Don’t forget to snap a selfie while you’re visiting and tag #onalark
