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... More

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,...

This hotel was everything we thought that it would be and more. The rooms are spacious comfortable and extremely well equipped. The staff made us feel as if we were guests (not paying guests) and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. We are looking forward to going back there sometime soon.

From the moment we drive up to the entrance to the time we left, everything was faultless. We were very warmly welcomed by the porters, reception staff and the General Manager. Our room was a third floor suite which was just wonderful. A cosy sitting room for putting your feet up, enjoying a coffee and watching a ball game. The... More

We booked online, and when we arrived, they had our reservation for the wrong day. I was even able to hit "back" in my browser to confirm that we had, in fact, entered the correct dates. Ok, so staff was very nice and took care of the problem, but we got a lower-grade room and had to follow up more... More

Dear rkillmon, Thank you kindly for your comment. As you stated, there was a discrepancy in the dates of the booking. Our booking systems and records indicate that you were booked for a later date. We were extremely pleased that we were able to rectify the misunderstanding albeit in a lower room category. The difference in room category accounts for... More
