The Vanderbilt

The Vanderbilt, an early 20th-century boutique hotel, is the perfect blend of the American Gilded Age elegance and today's ultra-modern comfort. Stepping into the hotel, you are taken back in time to an iconic period. This was when Newport was a famous summer destination for those who wanted to get noticed.


The former classical red-bricked Newport mansion was originally built by Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, a scion of the Vanderbilt family, in 1909. The mansion has been punctiliously restored to its authentic splendor.

This architectural marvel belongs to the Vanderbilt Auberge Resorts Collection. It offers luxury suites and rooms with breathtaking views of Newport Harbor.

The hotel also offers fine fireplaces and museum-quality artwork in the lobby, Christy's Gallery, and the Snooker Room. Moreover, the Vanderbilt Grill, the hotel's signature restaurant, offers seasonally changing menus throughout the year, featuring local ingredients.


The property is in the heart of downtown Newport, Rhode Island, a walking distance from the waterfront. It is one of the most sought-after hotels on the east coast of the United States. With all of Newport's best restaurants, bars, historical attractions, and shopping just a step from the property, there's no better place to stay.

Rooms and Suites

The Vanderbilt Grace hotel offers 33 spacious rooms and suites, with subtle color schemes and simple designs. Each also has antique furnishings and king-size beds. Moreover, every room offers various views of Historic Hill, Newport Harbor, Trinity Church, and Thames street.

Throughout the hotel, each room includes a kitchenette, which has modern kitchen needs and amenities. The bathrooms are also large and luxurious, with marble showers and upscale Penhaligon's branded bath products.

Other amenities in all rooms include flat-screen TVs with premium cable channels, minibar, coffeemaker, microwave, and mini-fridge. There is also an in-room safe, free ultra-fast wi-fi, and ironing board available on request. Additionally, the junior suites come with a sitting area separated by a bookcase. Finally, for guests who prefer that little extra, there are superior suites with separate living areas.

Furthermore, if you are looking for an elite accommodation experience, the hotel offers VIP suites. They come with a choice of one or two bedrooms and a separate living room. For the ultimate experience, the Vanderbilt Suite features added luxury, with a separate kitchen, cooking utensils, dining, and living area.

That's not all. At The Bar, you'll be able to enjoy your favorite cocktail in a relaxed setting. You can also enjoy afternoon tea with Champagne. Besides, have a tasty dessert selection or a cheese pairing guide with wine or whiskey.

During the summer, the Garden Terrace offers a wonderful selection of culinary delights. You enjoy the option of dining poolside for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
