Why We Love This Hotel

  • Originally built by the Vanderbilt family in 1909, the hotel still has gilded-age accents like huge fireplaces and a double-helix staircase in the lobby
  • Guests can indulge in an impressive array of specialty treatments at the on-site spa like locally sourced Atlantic-shoreline hot-stone massage
  • Rooms here are big: Starting at 300 square feet — suites start at 400 — they also come with views of mansions in the historic Hills neighborhood or of Newport Harbor

The Vanderbilt Hotel feels right at home among Newport's opulent turn-of-the-century mansions: For instance, it's decked out from top to bottom with meticulous landscaping and ornate furnishings — think billiards tables, built-in book shelves and hand-carved moldings. It has amenities fit for a robber-baron, too — you can even rent a classic sports car, straight out of the 1920s, and cruise around town (for an added fee).

Although the property itself is over 100 years old, the hotel doesn't seem stuffy, thanks to the modern pastel color palette in guest rooms and large windows that let in lots of natural light. Accommodations boast other contemporary updates like free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and glass-enclosed rainfall showers in the bathrooms.

The on-site Vanderbilt Grill is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and specializes in New England-inspired dishes using locally caught seafood — we're particularly fond of the lobster Benedict for breakfast. Other perks include the hotel's spa and fitness center, where guests will find an indoor pool and sauna as well as a variety of wellness classes offered year-round.

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.
