Newport Marriott Rings in the Holidays with an Exclusive Offer

November 9, 2018

Newport, Rhode Island , Nov. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Newport Marriott in Rhode Island is celebrating the start of the holiday season by unveiling an exclusive holiday package for guests. Available November 17th through January 1st, 2019, the Seaside Yuletide Package invites travelers to save with four tickets to the Breakers, Elms or Marble House, a holiday welcome gift and four Starbucks specialty beverages in the Plank Bar.

Along with the Newport Rhode Island deal, kids ages 12 and under eat free at MainSail, including breakfast, lunch or dinner when accompanied by an adult who purchases an entrée. To welcome the holiday season, the culinary team’s gingerbread house is returning to the hotel after being built at the Gateway Visitor Center for the last two years.

Beginning the week of Thanksgiving, the Newport Rhode Island hotel’s culinary team devotes over 100 hours to baking, building and decorating this gingerbread holiday confection. The 16-foot working lighthouse is one of the largest gingerbread houses in New England.

More than 450 pounds of organic gingerbread, 4,000 cookies and giant lollipops and nearly 50 gallons of royal icing are used during construction. The gingerbread lighthouse presides over a festooned lobby, where guests are encouraged to place a non-perishable food item in one of the sleighs filled for local residents in need. The hotel then passes along these bountiful donations to a local food pantry, which last year fed over 10,000 people in the Newport area.

As one of the leading hotels near Newport Mansions, guests traveling in to celebrate the holidays are minutes from historic Bellevue Avenue and Bowen’s Wharf, with easy access to the area’s best designer retailers and small boutiques.

Set in Newport Harbor, Rhode Island, this impressive hotel offers luxury rooms, premier service, on-site restaurants and bars, a fitness center, pool and spa and has been a mainstay for decades.

For more information or to book this Newport Rhode Island hotel package, guests can call 1-800-228-9290 and use the offer code ZJ6.
