This was our first time at the Vanderbilt and it lived up to my expectations. There are loads of options in Newport and I've stayed at some of the best and this hotel deserves a place on that list. An attentive and experienced staff and a super comfortable room. A great bar with Adrienne making some really excellent and creative...

Although their website promotes this as a refurbished mansion, it was never a residence, it was built as a YMCA with Vanderbilt money, hence the name. They have done a good job of renovating and the public rooms and restaurants are gracious and elegant. This Y MCA. building is in the book about Newport by Thornton Wilder "theophelis North". Food...

The room that was given to us initially smelled like cigarettes but they quickly changed our room at our request. The room was fine - nice and clean - the bath products were good (made in England :-) by Penhaligon). It was comfortable, clean and had everything you need for a small cute town. Service were personal and welcoming.

I visit friends in Newport a couple of times a year. This a classy hotel with old fashion restaurant./ dinning room. On weekends there is a piano player in the dining room. The food is above average. We stop by for lunch or dinner. One can also have a meal at the bar. The staff is helpful and friendly.

This is a great boutique, luxury hotel very close to the central downtown area. We stayed in a suite that was very nice and very comfortable. Great bed, nice set up. The staff was incredibly helpful and hospitable. Two things stopped me fromproviding 5 stars: very noisy heating system, noise penetration from the adjoining room. I would still recommend the...

I travel quite a bit and I've stayed in some amazing properties, but The Vanderbilt Grace has by far surpassed any other hotel. My husband and I stayed here for our surprise wedding in March. Also our parents stayed here as well. The rooms are beautifully appointed, with just enough of a nod to the era of the early 1900's....

Who would think that you could spend a cold, wintry weekend in Newport and say how great it was? Staff was exceptional, room was just fine. (could perhaps stand some renovations) Breakfasts were reasonable and very good, they had a constant fire in their "lounge" area. The gym is very small but adequate for a shorter type workout.
