Over one hundred years ago, the Vanderbilt family built the mansion and then gifted the property to the city of Newport. Since 1997, The Vanderbilt Grace has been an elegant hotel with first-class dining, a spa and two swimming pools. Luxurious stays start before arrival when guests are given the option to choose their pillows and room scent, and continue with champagne at check-in.

Truly a product of its generation, the Beaux-Arts mansion is gilded from top to bottom. Each spacious room features a kitchenette, Italian linens with cashmere throws and views of the harbor or historic downtown. Modern comforts like flat screen televisions and free Wi-Fi are also included. The oversized bathrooms have marble showers and lavish Penhaligon toiletries. Larger, multi-room suites are available for families.

Guests can dine on New England favorites with a French twist at Muse, the on-site restaurant before heading to the Garden Terrace for evening cocktails. In addition to an outdoor pool, the spa features a heated indoor pool and offers treatments in candlelit rooms with holistic Parisian products.

Vanderbilt Grace is in the heart of downtown Newport. The hotel is walking distance to shops, galleries and the famous mansions dotting the coastline. From the harbor, visitors can take sailing tours, charter fishing boats and enjoy a lobster dinner with views of the sunset.

The Vanderbilt was perfect in every way. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. From the bellhop to the manager- everyone was so welcoming. The 2 floor suite was immaculate and luxurious. This is the perfect hotel for a Newport getaway with everything in walking distance. We look forward to returning to the Vanderbilt.

Phenomenal service and a beautiful room! I mentioned that it was my girlfriends birthday and we came back from dinner to find chocolate covered strawberries in our room. Room service was outstanding for breakfast, with a delicious duck confit waffle. The staff was so personable and friendly, greeting us with welcome cocktails and ensuring that we were able to use all of our $50 credit from TravelZoo. The captains loft is huge! And the skylight made a wonderful difference. Overall, I think this is the best hotel I’ve stayed in and would go back any time I’m in Newport.
