Yuletide family package from Newport, RI, hotel offers deluxe accommodations, complimentary breakfast

NEWPORT, R.I., Dec. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Each year between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day, a festive holiday spirit settles over historic Newport, RI.  Famous Robber Barons' mansions are lavishly decorated, antique cobbled streets twinkle with charm, tiny shops and fragrant restaurants exude warmth and invite intrigue. 


It's the perfect place to celebrate the season, so make your way to the Newport Marriott, where a gingerbread lighthouse shines its beacon on a great holiday deal.        

The Gingerbread Family Package is one of the most unique Newport hotel deals and is available through Dec. 25, 2013.  The Newport, RI, hotel deal includes:

The Newport hotel's culinary team devotes more than 100 hours to baking, building and decorating the 16-foot gingerbread lighthouse, which also features a 7-foot keeper's house.  More than 450 pounds of gingerbread, 4,000 cookies and giant lollipops, and 50 gallons of royal icing go into construction. This confection compound presides over a festooned lobby, where a grand piano plays a merry measure. Guests are encouraged to share the bounty of the season by placing a nonperishable food item in one of the sleighs filled for local food banks.
