If you follow me on Instagram you'll know that we recently went on a whistle-stop 6 day road trip around New England with the little man. A little exhausting but we had a fantastic time. We stayed in 4 different hotels (the first was at the airport as we arrived late so I really won't bore you with that one!) and 3 of them were just lovely so I thought I'd share:

The Attwater, Newport, Rhode Island

Now it' a coincidence, but this and the second hotel form part of the same chain - Lark Hotels. We were after somewhere in each location which looked nice and had rooms large enough for the 3 of us and Lark fitted the bill perfectly. Such a wonderful atmosphere and a gorgeous room. We completely fell for Newport after a long day's drive around Cape Cod but the hotel was the icing on the cake. 

Another beauty and another Lark Hotel in the rather nice little town of Portsmouth, New Hampshire - just look at it from the outside! We had a room in the roof.

So a MUCH bigger chain (a Marriott) but definitely not lacking in character. Exposed brick and ducting and this rather lovely atrium (which Mr M joked looked like a prison!). I didn't get as many pictures in here as the lighting wasn't so good, but apart from being a little noisy at night (earplugs needed!) this place was also pretty fab.

Yes, I did the ironing overlooking the car park - there are only so may days I can go for without an iron in my hand! 

Anyway, a whistle-stop it was but a very good whistle-stop. I'll definitely be booking with Lark again if we're ever near one of their hotels (and no this is not sponsored!!).
