Southport Connecticut – Reported by Elite Travele

first_imgSouthport, Connecticut – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineIt takes a striking space and a special design touch to stand out at an address filled with one-of-a-kind accommodations, and the new Woodward-Newman Presidential Suite at the Delamar Southport in Southport, Connecticut, has all that and more. The 2,900-square-foot Presidential-style accommodation spreads across the hotel’s top floor with three bedrooms, and unfolds as a captivating setting for multiple uses, including weekend getaways, long-term stays, executive-style meetings and events from baby showers to dinner parties and Sweet 16 celebrations.The Woodward-Newman Suite is named for local legends Joanne Woodward and the late Paul Newman, who called nearby Westport home. The celebrity couple’s philanthropic efforts – most notably supporting the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for seriously ill children – have long served as inspiration and a charitable cause for managing partner of Greenwich Hospitality Group and owner of Delamar Southport, Charles Mallory.Continuing the tradition of employing multiple designers to create individual spaces throughout the hotel, Mallory enlisted local interior designer Rebecca Hathaway Lynch to fashion the Woodward-Newman Suite with chic New England-inspired décor, custom and locally sourced furnishings, a gorgeously textured palette and surprising details that comfort at every turn. Though based in Southport, Lynch remains greatly influenced by an illuminating 18-year residence in Milan and London. She set out with a singular vision for a functional space that would have guests feel at home with just a step inside the door.Lynch further tapped into area boutiques, such as Tiger Lily’s in Greenwich, as well as antique dealers and estate sales for unique furnishings, many of which she had restored or recast. She thoughtfully selected pieces from Mallory’s personal collection of original art for just the right works to suit the elegant space, from a classic English landscape over the fireplace in the living room, to contemporary works in the front hall, and an original 1950s Paul Newman movie poster in the office library.Delamar Southport welcomes guests to indulge in the new Woodward-Newman Suite to celebrate any occasion with the Private Pied-à-Terre package, which includes: two nights’ accommodation, use of a new 2012 Mercedes-Benz for the weekend courtesy of Mercedes-Benz of Fairfield, signature cocktails and charcuterie plate for two served in the suite, private concierge service and complimentary breakfast for two each morning.
