Dovetail + Co acquired the Mainstay Hotel in Newport, Rhode Island, a 200 room full-service hotel with onsite restaurant and pool. With the purchase, Dovetail + Co plans a significant redevelopment that will transform the property into a vibrant hideaway that is grounded in Newport’s colorful history and celebrates the city’s emerging culinary and art scenes.

Located in North Newport, the Mainstay Hotel is convenient to downtown Newport—renown for its Gilded Age mansions, America’s Cup sailing, sandy beaches, and rugged coastline—and Naval Station Newport—a U.S. Navy base with approximately 5,800 employees and 17,000 students. Dovetail is keen to contribute to the revitalization of North Newport, creating jobs and improving this prominent gateway to the City by the Sea and Aquidneck Island.
