We visited Newport after several large snow storms in early 2015, so it wasn't the coastal splendor you might anticipate, but the service at this hotel was personable and we were spoiled by the room upgrade we received. The hotel has modern seaside furnishings and a very clean and comfortable feel. It's centrally located and close to lots of good... More

This is a lovely historic hotel very centrally located just off Thames Street in Newport. It's a short walk to the waterfront and most of the restaurants and attractions in Newport, and a short drive to the mansions along Bellevue. There is a fine dining restaurant, an indoor pool, and a sunny garden room for breakfast. I had spoken to... More

The hotel, which used to be a YMCA, is a comfortable boutique hotel very well located for the historic part of town. The welcome was "welcome" after a long drive. Our room was nice but too small. It had views over the sea, was well equipped with a nice, but small bathroom. The restaurant was OK but we had a... More

From the first welcome to the last goodbye, the service by the staff at the Vanderbilt was unparalleled. They tried helping us with everything we asked and seemed like they really cared. The hotel is in a great location for walking around the cute downtown area and near restaurants and shops. And its about a ten minute ride to the... More

What an incredible experience. From the moment we stepped out of our car and got welcomed into the hotel we were greeted by every single employee, we arrived early so we were given a short tour and told the history of Vanderbilt Grace (how it used to be a YMCA, owned by the Vanderbilts, etc). Every staff interaction during our... More

Not sure where to start. At check-in a young man named Marco sealed the deal with customer service perfection. Polite, knowledgeable, intelligent, and enthusiastic, Marco was the perfect host. The valet service was outstanding. A gentleman named Nate was outstanding. The room was perfect. Comfortable, neat and welcoming. The location is perfect. Walk down the hill and you're on Thames...

We had a room on the 4th floor, which had a view of the harbor. Just beautiful. Lovely large bathroom and a very comfortable bed. We ate breakfast at the hotel each day, which was just delicious. The service was impeccable and the staff seemed like they could not do enough for you. It had a nice indoor pool, which... More

We had a beautiful long weekend here. The room was lovely, the service impeccable and the location perfect. We could walk everywhere for dinner, and if you don't fancy the reasonably priced breakfast you can pop down the road to Starbucks and bring your coffee back to the hotel to drink it on the roof terrace. Doesn't get better than... More

Fabulous hotel with great location that really understands the concept of impeccable service. Rooms were tasteful and comfortable. Dining was pleasant in both restaurants. Service was top notch: guests are made to feel welcome, comfortable and respected. A truly wonderful place to stay in Newport! Looking forward to my next stay.

This hotel is amazing from when you first arrive, for a glass of champagne, until you leave. Great staff who do all they can to help and advise. The room was fine for two, but we were a party of three and it was quite cramped when the sofa bed was up. Breakfast wasn't included, but was reasonably priced and... More
