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 returned 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 initially built by Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, a scion of the Vanderbilt family, in 1909. The estate 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 of 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 provides various views of Historic Hill, Newport Harbor, Trinity Church, and Thames street.

Each room in the hotel includes a kitchenette with 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, a 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, there are superior suites with separate living areas for guests who prefer that little extra.

Furthermore, the hotel offers VIP suites if you are looking for an elite accommodation experience. They can choose 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. There is also an extra bathroom and a dedicated reception.

Restaurants and Bars

A fireplace, bar, and lounge in the main dining room remind guests of an exclusive private home. There's a choice of dining on delicious dishes prepared on the grill using local ingredients. Or, dine a la carte at the Conservatory, an ideal intermediate between the dining room and garden terrace.

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.

The Garden Terrace offers a beautiful selection of culinary delights during the summer. You enjoy the option of dining poolside for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You can even order from a selection of freshly caught fish. Experience the beauty of nature while dining al fresco, and enjoy a bottle of rose for brunch at your poolside table.

Children under the age of ten stay free with their parents. However, older children have an extra charge per bed/night. Baby cots for the juniors are available in the Junior Suite and the larger rooms. You can also request child-friendly dishes, and the Chef will be happy to prepare them.


If you prefer to travel with your pets, check about designated rooms at the time of reservation. However, there is a minimal charge for pets based on their size.


The guests at The Vanderbilt are spoilt for choices when indulging in activities for fun, fitness, relaxation, or to kill time. It provides luxury resort features in a downtown hotel.

You can spend time working out at the fully-equipped fitness center, with cardio machines, steam shower, sauna, personal TV, and free weights. Or, enjoy breathtaking sunset views sipping your favorite drinks.

You can also relax on deckchairs at the Garden Terrace, which has a small outdoor and a large indoor pool. There is even a Beverage Manager on hand. Such one will gladly teach you how to mix cocktails professionally.
