Sea Breeze Inn opens in Newport

US: The Sea Breeze Inn has hosted a grand opening of its newly-built boutique hotel in Newport, Rhode Island.

Located at 147 Aquidneck Avenue in Middletown, the hotel features 16 guestrooms and suites with ocean views, and a 30 seat full-service café named Yia Yia's Café

"After years of planning, design, and construction we are excited to open our new boutique hotel and once again welcome guests to the Newport area," said Leeza Amarant, owner and operator of the hotel. "We truly look forward to offering top-quality accommodations along with our signature personal touch to travellers from around the world."

The Sea Breeze Inn started as a small ice cream parlour in 1991 by husband and wife team Telly and Leeza Amarant. In 1995 the Amarants expanded the site into an eight-room bed and breakfast with a cafe. In late 2015 the building was demolished to begin construction of the new hotel.

"Since we opened the original Inn we've had the opportunity to host and meet amazing people from across the globe and we've been very fortunate to have many of our guests return to stay with us year after year," said Telly Amarant who oversaw construction on the hotel. "The facility was growing old and dated it was time for an update. Our focus with this project was to start from scratch and create a space that compliments the unique style of Newport Rhode Island. We're confident that our guests will enjoy the improvements we've made."

The building was designed by local architect Dan Herchenroether of HerkWorks and the interiors throughout the hotel were designed by Boston-based Misty Gray of Grayscale Designs.
