A $35 million renovation has been completed at the 320-room Newport Marriott in Rhode Island. All the guest rooms have been redone in seaside colors and upgraded technology; the second-floor function space and the common areas also were renovated. Now open is a new restaurant, Mainsail, and two bars, the Skiff and the Plank. A 57-seat outdoor bar terrace overlooking Newport Harbor will open in late May. The property offers the 4,500-square-foot Spa at Newport Marriott, a 10,000-square-foot health club with an indoor saline pool, and 24,400 square feet of meeting space.
