US: Demolition has began of the current two-story building at 31 America’s Cup Avenue in the construction of Newport’s boutique hotel, the Brenton Hotel.

Construction of the new 57-room hotel in Rhode Island will begin upon completion of the demolition.

The Brenton Hotel will debut in spring 2020 located along the waterfront on the corner of America's Cup Avenue and Long Wharf, adjacent to the Newport Visitor Information Center and the Newport Marriott Hotel. 

Owned by LWH, LLC, a locally based investment group, and operated by White Horse Hospitality also of Newport, the Brenton Hotel will be a five-story structure with parking on the ground floor and four floors above for public space and guest rooms.  The development team worked closely with City and State officials and the Newport Historic District Commission to ensure the contemporary architectural design details of the hotel are consistent with Newport's historic character.

The hotel features 57 guestrooms and includes on-site parking, dining and social areas, and leading edge hospitality technology.

LWH is controlled by Farrar Equities, a Newport-based hospitality company which also owns the Mill Street Inn and White Horse Tavern, and Crosspoint Associates, which owns and manages various commercial properties throughout New England, including the Aquidneck Shopping Center in Middletown, Rhode Island. 

The architect for the project is Group One Partners in Boston, Massachusetts.  Newport-based Behan Brothers are general contractors for the development.

The hotel is named in honour of the iconic Brenton Reef at the entrance to Narragansett Bay, near the site where the America's Cup races were contested for 113 years
