One of the finest hotels in which I have stayed. We had a beautiful suite which was impeccably serviced by our wonderful housekeeper. Turndown service included amazing brownie cookies! The staff was unfailingly kind and attentive, providing us every possible service. My daughter and I were spoiled rotten! I highly recommend the Vanderbilt Grace and cannot wait to return. Thank...

We visited Newport to see the mansions decorated for the holidays and enjoy some fresh seafood. Our stay at the Vanderbilt Grace added to our memorable trip. From arrival to departure we enjoyed the warmth of a gracious and professional staff. We look forward to visiting again in the summer.

My wife and I stayed at the Vanderbilt at the end of October. On arriving at the hotel the creating was very professional, but friendly. We were offered a drink and a very informative introduction to Newport. We were in what I believe is one of their state rooms. The room was very clean and in excellent decorative order. The... More

As soon as you enter this magnificent hotel you know you are in for a treat. The staircase is gorgeous, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the amenities are plentiful. The building itself has been renovated, but many of the original features have been preserved. We opted for a large Junior suite. This was a corner room with soaring... More

I took advantage of Newport Restaurant Week to enjoy a wonderful lunch at The Vanderbilt Grace and was literally overwhelmed by the phenomenal service I received! WOW! is an understatement! As a current resident of Newport, I've been "under"whelmed by the lack of customer service and attention to detail in most topnotch establishments in this wonderful city. This was definitely...

Just returned from a weekend getaway at the Vanderbilt Grace and cannot wait to go back. It was our first trip to Newport and we found it to be such a quaint city with much to do and delicious food. The Vanderbilt Grace was a highlight. It is centrally located and a few steps into town. The service was impeccable,... More

Our stay at the Vanderbilt Grace was magical and exceeded our expectations. The staff was amazing and the customer service and comfort was over the top. Our 2 children ages 8 & 10 were equally as thrilled and treated as young gentlemen by the exceptional staff. Our 2 story room was comfortable and quite contemporary for this older yet renovated...

My sister and law and I stayed here for the Newport Marathon in October. This hotel was in a great location. We received champagne upon arrival and the staff was so eager to help with anything. They were very excited to help us with any questions or help with directions, excited to hear how the race went. Genuine - eager... More

Newport is a wonderful seaside town in Rhode Island and it's just 90 mins from Boston so we went there for a weekend away from the kids. The hotel property is a lovely old mansion (or at least looks like one) in the center of Newport. The room was pretty expensive (> $600) so our expectations were high. We booked... More

Our only regret about staying at this hotel was that we could only stay one night as it is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The rooms are amazing, the restaurant was fabulous, and the location is perfect but the best thing about the hotel is the wonderful staff. They did everything possible to make us comfortable,...
