Opened in the late '80s, Rhode

Island's 320-key Newport Marriott had
been "touched by too many hands over the
years," says designer Malcolm Berg, owner
and principal of Coral Gables, Floridabased EoA. Charged with the hotel's recent
$35 million renovation, he says he had
to contend with "mermaids, murals with
turtles-all kinds of crazy stuff."
Berg didn't avoid nautical motifs for the
waterfront location; instead, he embraced
them by using seafaring materials. In the
lobby's Plank bar, for instance, a circular
series of ropes hung floor-to-ceiling encloses
a seating area that features a gurgling
cauldron of water. Nearby, the gleaming
walnut front desk takes the form of a boat
and is backed by a similar array of ropes,
while strips of mirror mosaic give the effect
of rippling water.
With its check-in relocated, the reception
area now has a "better sense of arrival," Berg
says, with a linear procession that links it

with the lounge spaces. As guests enter the
building, there is a moment of pause from
which they can look through the soaring
atrium and out to a new window wall at the
back of the property. Meanwhile, a 6-foot-tall
granite waterfall, interior landscaping, and
a canvas trellis separate the entrance and
reception area from the atrium.
That vestige of the John Portman era
has been freshened and updated, complete
with mast-like wood poles, canvas accents,
and new balcony railings. Guestrooms are
positioned on three sides of the atrium
and outfitted in neutral tones with light
blue accents. They feature linen curtains,
canvas headboards that are lit from behind,
and lamps that resemble beacons. Rooms
on the east end, which face the rear of the
building, have "gone from the worst to the
best," according to Berg, thanks in part to
the addition of balconies that serve as bonus
sitting rooms equipped with lounge chairs
covered in sailcloth.

3+4. Neutral tones are
enhanced with light blue
accents in the suites and
guestrooms, which also
feature linen curtains,
sailcloth-covered chairs,
and backlit canvas
headboards.

Elsewhere, the redo includes several
reconfigured meeting rooms that borrow
natural light from an adjacent restaurant-
the new 98-seat Main Sail restaurant, with
its indoor-outdoor harbor-front bar, the
Skiff. In the restaurant, handcrafted cupped
walnut dining booths surrounded by uplit
ropes "are meant to be an abstracted version
of the vessels moored amongst the piers in
the marina which sits outside the building,"
explains Berg. At Skiff, some 4,000 ropes
hang from the ceiling, forming "the shape of
an undulating wave, seen from beneath the
