The hotel has thought of everything. The service is unlike none other in the area. From the champagne at check in, personal the hotel walk thru, personalized turndown service with notes and chocolate & water bottles in the car from the valet upon exiting. If money was no object I would stay here every trip. The bed was so comfortable... More

Graceful and gracious are the first thoughts of this wonderful hotel. When we arrived we were greeted by the hotel staff who introduced us to the concierge, with champagne waiting for us. I knew at this moment this was no ordinary hotel. The friendliness, professional manner in how they treat their guests is simply eloquent. When they learned it was... More

We arrived and were greeted with champagne on arrival. I had wanted to stay at this hotel very much when planning our holiday, I was not disappointed. When we were shown to our room if was very snug (small) and overlooked the courtyard. The room was well furnished and very well laid out but for our liking too snug. I... More

Centrally located but still removed enough from the bustle of Thames Street. Wonderful helpful staff, relaxing and tasteful setting, peaceful gardens. The Muse restaurant is eloquent with a menu that is pleasing to the eye as it is to the palette, The chef has a gift for both subtle and complex spices and pairing of offerings that are noteworthy. The... More

The welcoming and gracious staff, the lovely garden, the perfect location. Worth the price to stay in the midst of colonial-era Newport, within steps of Maya Lin's Queen Anne's Place, down the street from the Touro Synagogue, within earshot of the waterfront. All of this in a beautifully maintained architectural gem. Pools--both indoor and outdoor--are most welcomed during the hot... More

We'll worth the prices. Wonderful three night stay in a clean, well appointed hotel. Standouts were the staff in all areas, especially front desk staff and valets. Roof top bar is a must for the view. Delicious lunch in garden. Complimentary breakfast is very very nice. We had loft suite with circular staircase and private door to rooftop bar. Only... More

Spent a long weekend at the Vanderbilt Grace with my wife and toddler. Vanderbilt Grace lived up to the other reviews on TripAdvisor. We had a fantastic and relaxing time. Our room was impeccably clean (and very big), and the staff was warm and attentive. We particularly appreciated how welcoming the staff was to our toddler (who is just getting... More

My girlfriend and I had dinner at the Vanderbilt Grace (Garden Terrace) during a summer weekend. The MOST impressive thing about this hotel is the staff. Everything regarding the service was perfect. The staff is young but they are extremely professional and well trained. Honestly, whoever trained these employees deserves a lot of recognition! Food (Salmon & Crab Cakes) and... More

We stayed for 2 nights midweek in June. What a wonderful stay. The staff is so helpful and attentive and the location is extremely convenient to downtown Newport. We were in room 312, overlooking the patio and next to the elevator. It was a great room - big in size and quiet which is just what we wanted. The mattress... More
