The Vanderbilt Grace is located at the historic centre of Newport within convenient walking distance to the wharfes. The old mansion building is very impressive, and this, and the price for your stay, set high expectations to rooms, service and food. Unfortunately neither of these expectations are met. For the price of it, our rooms were tiny and not very... More

This is the second time I have stayed here. Once in 2014 when it seemed much more put together. It feels like they need more business and need to renovate some areas where the carpet is worn out. In addition, they do have a problem with the air conditioning as it was very noisy in the room. They have also... More

Well, we went back to Martha's Vineyard for our yearly vacation but this time we stayed in Newport instead of New York and what a great decision. We stayed at the Vanderbilt Grace and what a lovely hotel. The staff was helpful and polite. We stayed in the Captain's Loft suite and it was fresh, comfortable and welcoming after a... More

Great place, probably the best in Newport, to take in the sunset from a rooftop bar. Inventive cocktail menu. Stay away from the food options...watermelon gazpacho with avocado cream was 'meh' and the charcuterie was boring.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Great location right in the centre of Newport. Not the most relaxing stay tho- the air conditioning is so noisy. You cant possibly sleep with that on which means a broken hot sleep. Our room overlooked the conservatory/outside seating area so got noise from that. Room close to lift so got noise from... More

Four of us stopped for a cocktail or tea and then went up to the top on the elevator to view Newport in the evening. The view was spectacular! There are illustrations framed, on the walls of Norman Rockwell and others. A beautiful hotel

The room was very spacious and clean. Good location. Staff were helpful and the hotel is charming. The Conservatory restaurant was OK for dinner, not great. Rooftop bar very popular for sunset. Spectacular views.

Arrive at least a half hour before sunset – get a good spot and just sit and relax. Absolutely the perfect spot to watch the sunset in Newport. Not many people know about it, so you'll normally find a spot. It's definitely worth the walk up to the hotel.
