The hotel was charming, in a good location, with very comfortable accommodation and very nice staff. Within walking distance are restaurant, shops, the nearby harbour and also a very nice area full of very pretty streets full of lovely 18th century houses.

We have just returned from our stay at this absolutely charming boutique hotel perfectly located to enjoy the sights of Newport. The accommodation in elegant house was near perfection and the service likewise, with nothing being too much trouble. The rooms are appointed to a very high standard with the only issue being not adequate wardrobe space. We also enjoyed... More

Just spent a few days at the Vanderbilt Grace and really enjoyed my stay. This property has everything one should expect from a luxury boutique hotel: great service, a unique setting, charming atmosphere, and well-appointed rooms. We loved the location, which is just steps away from historic Newport and its charming shops and gourmet restaurants.

I had read the reviews about The Conservatory restaurant and wanted to check it out. It was closed, so we visited the bar for a cocktail. The bartender informed us about the rooftop deck, so we checked it out. What an unexpected find. We sat in Adirondack chairs and took in the expansive views of the harbor and town. We... More

My wife and I stayed here for our 5th Anniversary, and we had a fabulous time. We were surprised with a bottle of wine and fresh cookies in our room on arrival, and everyone in the hotel was accommodating and friendly. The service was absolutely top notch, some of the best we have ever seen. We loved the convenience and... More

We spent 4 days for our anniversary at The Vanderbilt Grace and it was perfect. The junior suite was beautiful with a fantastic view and more amenities than expected. The staff was very helpful and gracious - they even gifted us with a pair of their champagne glasses when we requested if we could purchase a set as a remembrance... More

In fairness the photos on the website for this hotel are very accurate. The bedrooms are actually pretty bland so I struggle with the adjective 'luxury' and would probably describe them more as 'slightly upmarket and very comfortable'. We took an Admiral Suite which had a lovely view over the water but the car parking lot in the foreground isn't... More

Arrviving at the Vanderbilt Grace Boutique Hotel is like time traveling back in time and experience the glamour of another era – the so-called Gilded Age - when leisure, luxury and elegance were all. This slogan got real for us during our honeymoon stay at this marvelous house. Everybody & everything in this hotel is obligated to the highest perfection.... More

We spent a weekend at the Vanderbilt in May 2015. Had been to Newport many times but never stayed here. We loved the hotel. Our suite was very large and had everything. The hotel has great character but has all the modern amenities. didn't have time for the spa, will next time!

My group was at the Grace May 11-14-15. The staff did an outstanding job taking care of us. They took every opportunity to make sure we were cared for; from the valet that met us upon arrival to the in house baked chocolate cookies left by our bedside each night. This is the most efficient staff ever. The accommodations were... More
