Introducing: The Pell, the First JdV by Hyatt Hotel in Rhode Island

Hyatt Hotels has announced the official opening of The Pell, a part of the JdV by Hyatt brand. The new boutique hotel located on Aquidneck Island, RI, is managed by Highgate, and has completed a $9 million renovation that introduced a "modern bohemian" design.

The Pell is less than two miles from Sachuest Beach, Third Beach and Easton’s Beach in Newport, a popular surfing spot. Newport Vineyards is less than a mile from the hotel and the historic Newport Mansions and Cliff Walk are under three miles away. After a day exploring, guests can unwind at the hotel library or dine at the hotel’s full-service restaurant, The Helmway. Architecture and design firms A4 Architecture and Stoa Design Collective were tasked with transforming the guestrooms and public spaces of the hotel, which was originally built in 1989. 

The Pell offers 127 guestrooms and suites with full bathrooms with a marble vanity, tub and walk-in shower. Deluxe rooms and suites also have a separate sitting area and two suites offer kitchenettes. Rooms are equipped with a mini-refrigerator, 55-inch TV and complimentary internet.

The hotel’s signature restaurant, The Helmway, serves breakfast and dinner with tables and bar seating. In-room dining is also available. “The menu reflects my passion for local, sustainably sourced high-quality ingredients,” explains Executive Chef Will Wallbank. “We work with local farms and fisherman to deliver fresh options for guests and visitors of Aquidneck Island.” The restaurant’s menu and cocktail list will change with the seasons.

Tip: Offering 1,250 square feet of customizable meeting and event space, The Pell can also host an intimate wedding reception, pre- and post-wedding events, or small business meetings for up to 40 guests. The property has a business center, exercise facility and complimentary parking.
