Stayed here for 2 nights in early April. Cove suite was perfect - large, well appointed, comfortable and spotless. The building itself is fascinating, although common areas felt slightly tired. Staff generally helpful but at times the place felt oddly over-staffed. Very good hotel otherwise

My first experience with The Vanderbilt Grace's helpful staff came when a certain online map/directions site that shall remain nameless gave me crappy directions and I ended up hopelessly lost. Heather & Kevin stayed on the phone with me and expertly guided me through the labyrinth of narrow alleys Newport calls one-way streets. Kevin greeted me at the gate, graciously... More

Nestled in Newport, RI is an elegant, charming boutique hotel known as a The Vanderbilt Grace. The rooms are not hotel clones. We stayed in a unique room with an upstairs bedroom that was over-looking the living area. The service and restaurant were great. The staff was helpful, cheery, and those from faraway lands shared how much fun it is... More

I recently stayed at the Vanderbilt Grace, with My Best Friend and her 5 children. It was a weekend to celebrate my Birthday. We had a great experience, I worked with Danielle Theresa to book my rooms, the whole entire staff was great and very accommodating. When I arrived to the Hotel I was greeted by a gentlemen I believe... More

We stayed at The Vanderbilt Grace over President's Day Weekend based on TripAdvisor ratings and weren't disappointed. The service was amazing and the number of people working there seemed endless. We're a family of 4 and stayed in Suite 103. The amount of space was great with 2 big bedrooms (each had it's own closet, bathroom and TV) and a... More

We decided to beat the NYC madness for one night and took off for Newport. We came across Vanderbilt Grace after a little research. We pulled up and were immediately greeted by a very nice bellman and front desk agent that treated us to glasses of champagne. As soon as we walked in, we new we were in a magical... More

My fiancee and I stayed at the Vanderbilt Grace during our visit to Newport in the beginning of January. When we arrived, we were promptly greeted with excellent customer service by Konstantinos. Before we sat down to check in, another employee took our bags to our room, and we were each offered a glass of champagne. Konstantinos answered all of... More

Spent a wonderful weekend celebrating our anniversary. The room, staff and ambiance were excellent! The hotel is located right in the middle of town which allowed us the flexibility to walk to most spots. We did use our car to visit some of the mansions but feel that if we were here in warmer months, we could have easily walked... More

My wife and I stayed in October while it was still fairly warm out, and we couldn't have had a better time. The hotel is in walking distance of most of the great restaurants and mansions in Newport. The staff was extremely accommodating, and the hotel itself is very peaceful. The spa was top notch, and the restaurant in the... More
