My husband and I booked our three day wedding celebration at the Vanderbilt Grace. We searched throughout New England for the perfect venue - a historic, inviting, intimate hotel that could accommodate 50 of our closest friends and family. We immediately fell in love with the Vanderbilt Grace when we visited for the first time in the Spring of 2016....

My wife and I stayed here for 8 nights and could not have enjoyed our stayed anymore. Location is the best and hotel was as good as it gets. We're exp travelers and have stayed at Mandarin Orientals, Langham in Chicago, etc. This is right there with them as far as luxury. But the staff is where they really stand...

Loved this hotel. Was one of 5 hotels we stayed at in a road trip over New England and this was our favourite. Fantastically friendly and helpful staff in a brilliantly appointed hotel. Right in the centre of Newport so a great spot for exploring his great little town. Has a great roof terrace for enjoying a sundowner overlooking the...

This hotel is right in the heart of Newport-literally minutes from the restaurants and shopping. Staff is very friendly and helpful and on point. We stayed in the master junior suite which was a beautiful room. In fact, more roomy that it appears on their website. Very clean with 2 beautiful bathrooms. My husband thought the shower was a 5...

A quiet and quaint Grand Mansion. Small but extremely well appointed rooms. Dedicated and wonderfully genuine service. Breakfast is a wonderful experience and a great way to begin the day at the Vanderbilt Grace.

I had high expectations when I checked into the Vanderbilt Grace hotel in Newport. And in spite of minor faults in the hotel 's infrastructure, I was not disappointed. The hotel is located in the middle of the city, a colonial gem in the state of Rhode Island. The staff is cordial and disposed to help the guests in whatever...

As part of our New England tour we included a three day stop-over in Newport Rhode Island. I worked hard to find the right hotel, given that our favoured Leading Hotels group doesn't have a property to offer in Newport. My wife and I prefer period properties to modern "plastic" affairs and location is always key, as we prefer to...

Newport is a bustling place with lots of places to visit and to eat. We arrived quite tired after a long drive from Lenox. The valet parked our car and organised the baggage for us. We were early and our room was not ready but that was no problem for us as we just booked in and happily went off...

The Grace advertises both a "tea" and "high tea". I thought that would be great after checking out some of the cottages. Made the reservation the day before and arrived with high expectations. Not so much. My advice - bring your own tea bag because that is all they offer for tea. A teapot with (I presume hot water -...

Welcoming place! Great service. Roof top bar view is amazing at sunset. Beds very comfortable. We did eat in dinning areas but food looked fantastic. Some of staff weren't overly knowledgeable about the area but local people were very friendly and proud of their city. They gave us good tips and directions.
