My girlfriend and i stayed here for the evening, and wow, what fantastic service. The concierge was extremely friendly and helpful, as was the staff. The service of the hotel particularly showed when they made a mistake (which was the fault of the bell boy, not the hotel). The bell boy forgot to pack our bags into our car when... More

OK I am bucking the trend and going against my old and elegant "must see". I just wasn't overwhelmed. It is certainly a wonderful location, well maintained old jewel, however it has no bar, no real lovely sitting areas or common areas. It is a bit cramped frankly and while I have no issues with service It just was not... More

We loved it. We were greeted by a very nice young man named francis. He was very attentive to my family. The entire staff was very very friendly and helpful. We had a great room ( 310) which had 2 floors and more then fit my family's needs. My only concern was returning to the hotel late amd riding the... More

Vanderbilt Grace was not on my list of hotel goals but it should have been. We booked a suite because we were traveling with our 14 yr old daughter. Hands down it was one of the most spacious suites I have ever stayed in. Spacious living room, two bathrooms (one with a huge soaking tub) and a walk in closet.... More

I am already well familiar with the excellence Vanderbilt Grace Hotel in Newport has to offer its guests. Their staff have always been over-the-top accommodating and friendly. However, I wasn't aware they had a roof-top deck until recently. Last week, I went atop the hotel to the rooftop bar/lounge on the deck and I was completely blown away by the... More

My girlfriend and I have spent a night at this lovely hotel. We weren't sure to make it our accommodation at first when we were planning our trip there because of how expansive it was, but we decided to go for it as it had lots of amenities. When we arrived at the hotel, we were received like VIPs. The... More

I enjoyed this beautiful hotel in the heart of Newport. Great breakfast and the rooftop bar is a must. Service was great as well!!! The restaurant was had a delicious menu and we enjoyed a quiet well prepared dinner. I hope to return soon as does my entire family.

We have just stayed 4 nights at the Vanderbilt Grace. Great boutique hotel in perfect central location. Easy walking distance to restaurants, bars and sights. Staff very attentive and friendly. Great rooftop bar with amazing views. Nice outside pool and gardens. Gym small but not bad! Would recommend hotel to couples. Only downside is that air conditioning in bedrooms is... More

My wife, daughter and I along with our great friend Lettitia from Paris and her daughter recently stayed at the Vanderbilt Grace. The property was centrally located and beautiful (particularly the garden area) and the rooms were spacious and well appointed. We enjoyed an excellent stay - however the customer service that extended past our stay was truly remarkable. Upon... More

Dear AI M, Thank you for your kind remarks and for your patience while we were trying to resolve the issue. Joseph Castillo, our Housekeeping Manager, didn’t have to think twice; he volunteered to hand deliver the bag himself making sure he got on the bus on time. Truly happy we were able to assist and hope we have the... More

The hotel was beautiful and the staff was warm and everything was meticulous. The warm cookies and the lavender at the turn down service were a nice touch. The roof top bar is a definite must see, even if you aren't staying there. The views are breathtaking!
