Spicer Mansion, a Mystic landmark since 1853, is set to open as an ultra-luxury destination under the guidance of Rhode Island’s Ocean House Management, LLC, owner and operator of the Ocean House, the only Forbes Triple Five Star rated hotel on the Eastern Seaboard. The group has appointed Gates Realty Holdings to oversee the final renovations, opening and on-going operations.
The freshly restored Spicer Mansion will make its debut on May 4, 2016. The hotel will offer individually designed guestrooms, culinary experiences helmed by Chef Jennifer Backman and notably, located behind a bookcase and down a set of stairs, the hotel’s bar, Room No. 9 Speakeasy, a nod to the hotel’s eight guest rooms. The bar is reserved for hotel and invited guests, featuring a premium cigar lounge, rare rye whiskeys, carefully composed cocktails and a specialty menu of creative bar fare.
“Mystic is a remarkable community, with Spicer Mansion bringing a unique set of qualities and characteristics to the Ocean House Management collection,” said Daniel A. Hostettler, President and Group Managing Director of Ocean House Management, LLC. “Our intention with Spicer Mansion is to cater to a well-heeled traveler in a destination that, up until now, has been dominated by the family market. Our reputation for service is at the forefront of this property’s DNA.”
