The Vanderbilt is a great trip down memory lane of historical FLA hotels with all the modern conveniences. I prefer boutique type properties like this to cookie cutter modern hotels, so if you are all about the latest all new, probably not your thing. We stayed for two nights in one of the two bedroom condos on the bayside. The... More

Right off the bat I want to state that I actually give this "resort" about 3 stars. Why am I putting it in the 1-star category? I believe modern American human nature is to look at the worst first, so I hope they read this before any others! Well...here goes: There's good news and bad news, both pros and cons... More

We would like to thank this guest for his very honest and straightforward comments, especially his acknowledgement that his wife loved our property. We take guest feedback very seriously and while we are disappointed that this guest did not love his stay with us, we are happy that his spouse did. While our hotel business and property is one of...

I enjoyed a week in Naples at VBR in Jan 2015. It was one of my most enjoyable vacations to Florida. I tend to stay in places on the beach in a room with a beach view, and I am not willing to even cross a road to get to the beach. Given that outlook, it is difficult to find... More

The hotel staff are simply awesome and here is why: I was staying at the Vanderbilt Beach Resort for our annual training trip for swimming. I was playing beach volleyball when my wedding band came of my hand. As a team we tried searching around but it seemed as though all was lost. I mentioned it to the concierge at... More

I agree with past reviewers: good value and friendly service, the beach side location is superb with loungers provided, there is a small pool. The other advantage is that the turtle club restaurant and bar are right attached and make for a great sun-set dinner with good quality food and not overpriced (minor quibble: I was offered bread and butter...

What an absolute great find! I have stayed here twice in the past two months. The staff are fantastic and the rates are great for being right on the beach. They will set up your chairs and umbrella for you. The rooms are clean and great for a family.

I stayed at this hotel, due to it's proximity to the Ritz, for a conference I was attending for the next 3 days. I didn't want to spend $400 per night and found this hotel to be well-reviewed on T.A. After staying, I could see why. What a great value. I stayed on the hotel(beach) side of the resort, as... More

We only had 2 nights to stay in Naples and chose to stay at the Vanderbilt again due to their location and rates. We had a gulf view room on the second floor. It seemed even nicer than the last time we stayed in 2007 (? updated rooms?). Our room was clean and spacious. Check in and check out were... More

The prices at this resort can’t be beat. The convenience of being right on the beach is even better. Just remember this is an old style resort and not your big corporate resort. The value, accommodations, and friendliness of the staff will make me visit again should I return to Naples. We stayed in a Junior Beachview Suite which was... More

Great beach location with small kitchenette without stove. Very clean and comfortable. Our room was close to street side and room was extremely quiet. The staff was very hospitable and friendly. The continental breakfast was $5 and a perfect start to our day sitting on the beach at the attached Turtle Club restaurant. Would definitely return here if our travels... More
