Life is better at the beach – and at this classic seaside hotel

The rooms in this reimagined boutique hotel, a modern throwback to simpler times, are inspired by “olde Misquamicut,” and so is the hospitality and service. Get comfortable in Maria’s Seaside Cafe, with homemade pasta and the freshest nightly seafood specials, or grab a cocktail on the rooftop deck. Check out Westerly, with its great beach bars, ice cream parlors, kids’ amusements and pristine beaches, all a walk or bike ride away.
