This is a hidden gem in Newport. On a quite street up from the hustle bustle, this totally renovated property offers quiet elegance a true sense of getting away from it all. The rooftop bar is the perfect place to watch the sunset on warm summer evenings. There is an indoor pool as well as a serene plunge pool out... More

Stayed at the Vanderbilt Grace for a summer escape from New York. Location is wonderful -- walking distance to everything and parking is hard to come by in Newport. The concierge suggested and made all our dining reservations and we liked them all. The outdoor pool is perfect and mostly quiet; not too many children while I was outside reading... More

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

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.
