The Vanderbilt Grace has easily set a new standard for hotel service for us going forward.

Before we arrived it was great to get an e-mail welcoming us. It makes me feel at ease to know I don't need to worry my reservation was messed up or lost.

When we drove up, we were greeted and all our luggage was quickly brought in. As we checked in we enjoyed a glass of champagne. Soon we were walking up to our Loft Suite. The room was inviting, comfortable and well decorated. Having the two floors would definitely be great for a longer stay to have space to relax in. The bedroom on the second floor was large enough to spread out in and had the full bathroom. The room was clean and well maintained throughout. I really liked the color scheme and furniture chosen. It really all worked together to give a great Newport feeling.

Breakfast was a bit light for the buffet, but just by adding a couple eggs we were full and ready to start our day. The restaurant, Muse, on the other hand was a totally different story. This was a truly perfect dining experience and next time we visit, we will be sure to do dinner here again.

After dinner we had to rush out for some pre-wedding day activities, but afterwards came back to enjoy a drink and try our hand at some snooker. Just like everywhere else the staff was friendly at the bar. Never having played snooker we were pretty bad, but this was a great way to end the evening.

The main winner here at the hotel and in the restaurant was the superb service. When we left for the night, we were wished a good evening and when we arrived, welcomed back. The man who helped us with our car and luggage both days was amazing. He was friendly and went out of his way to get things done. At times I don't know how he could have gotten it all done without running around everywhere.

We were only in town for one day to attend a wedding, but because of the Vanderbilt Grace, we are already planning on coming back in the summer. Overall this was a great evening and we can't wait to do it again, and hopefully for a few more days.

Spent one night with my two adult daughters in this charming hotel. Nice suites, very friendly service ! We chose it because it looked less "honeymoony" than the others that we checked on tripadvisor. Indeed it is not and we had a great time. The only bad point is that the internet was not functionning. But who needs internet when you're away for a week end. The staff was very helpfull with restaurants advices too. Highly recommend!

We spent two nights over the Easter weekend at the Vanderbilt Grace. We stayed in a loft suite wich was ideal for me, my wife and our 3 year old son.

The room was spacious and nicely furnished. The staff couldn't do enough for us and everyone made an extra effort - champagne on arrival, complimentary chocolates every evening, complimentary valet parking, making up a special table for us at breakfast etc.

The basement pool area was perfect for our morning / evening dips and our son was really excited to have the opportunity to go swimming and have the pool to ourselves.

I also have to commend the cleaning team. I've never seen hotel cleaning staff work so diligently and efficiently. Was really impressed by the obvious pride they took in their jobs.

The only mild criticism would be 1) that during our stay the wi-fi was not operational and 2) considering that the suites are so convenient for families (with a small kitchenette) it's a shame that the room service menu is so limited.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to any other visitors to Newport.

My husband and I went to this beautiful hotel to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary.
Our room was great. We had a Junior 500 with plenty of space for one night. It was very clean and fresh. The bed was oh so comfy. The pool was refreshing and a great way to get some
exercise. They also have a sauna for extra relaxation. What a treat!
Dinner at Muse was excellent from start to finish. The atmosphere is romantic and fun with
piano music and lovely artwork to enjoy.
Everything is made even better by the people who work at the Grace Vanderbilt. From check in
to housekeeping and everyone in between went out of their way to make our stay special .Go,
you will love it!

Room Tip: Good description on the website to help you choose.

Came here st Pattys day weekend and was very impressed. Complimentary valet and when we checked in, there was complimentary champagne. What beats that?! Very big, clean hotel room and the restaurant Muse was very good as well. I would definitely come back.
