Super-Modern Stay in an Old Port City

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 6, 2011

The best things about this little hotel are its location a few blocks up from Newport Harbor and its convenient, free self-parking--always hard to come by in the Harbor district. It's also small, only 23 rooms, giving one the sense of being secluded in their own private retreat while in the midst of a busy port city. The hotel itself was built within an old mill building and is very modern/Scandinavian in design. It reminded me a lot of hotels I've stayed in in Sweden and Iceland.

All of the rooms at the Mill Street Inn are suites. They offer separate bed and sitting rooms, comfortable feather beds, high thread-count sheets, refrigerators, flat screen TVs, Aveda spa products, nice Continental breakfast and super-modern design all around. The bathrooms are crazy-modern with glass-walled showers and multiple fixtures. All in all it's very comfortable. The staff was also quite friendly and helpful.

The only complaints I have are with the modern design itself which seems to have overlooked certain practical matters, such as places to hang towels, heat in the bathrooms and furniture that's actually comfortable to sit on--in favor of aesthetics. They were also a bit skimpy with the towels provided (maybe because there's no place to hang them). On the plus side, the hotel does offer free bottles of spring water, which you really need because the tap water is undrinkable.

Unique Quality: The hotel offers no restaurant or bar facilities or pool.

Directions: Historic Hill district
