“Absolutely perfect experience”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

We just spent 4 nights at the wonderful Vanderbilt Grace Hotel. Everything was absolutely perfect. Dinner in their special restaurant was superb. Breakfast buffet was lovely as was the complimentary champagne with breakfast. Since it was our anniversary, the hotel greeted us with chilled white wine and chocolate covered strawberries in our junior suite. We had the luxury of two individual bathrooms, which is a rarity in any hotel. The staff was absolutely accomodating and charming. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. Access to the main area of Newport, with all the shops, bustling restaurants and boats is just blocks away. This is a place for a truly special occasion and staying here becomes just that!! Don't miss the lovely spa and enjoy a hot stone massage and a dip in the indoor pool. Or relax on the roof terrace at sundown with a cocktail.

Room Tip: We loved the junior suite with two bathrooms, two flat screen tv's and comfortable sitting area...

The second time we stayed here. We were greeted with a "welcome back" which is always nice. This time was a great improvement over our first visit. Valet came to car to take our items and park our car. Room is well appointed and pretty with a choice of pillows. We had a lovely suite upgrade. Nice and quiet yet walking distance to the center of town and to the Mansion walk and other areas. Perfect location. Lovely private garden in the back for dining. Wait service excellent and food is good. Spa and pool downstairs with small outdoor pool perfect for relaxing with a book. There is also a deck upstairs with a view of the water and boats. We were greeted every time we arrived back at the hotel. An excellent place for a getaway. We will go back.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the water or garden.

Stayed four nights from July 21 - 25. This is our fourth stay there. Service is impeccable. The friendlist staff we have ever encountered. You feel like you are staying at your best friends house. Breakfast in the garden terrace is a relaxing experience. Health club and indoor pool are more than adequate. Very close to the action yet far enough way to enjoy the quaintness of Newport.We cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Newport. Somewhat expensive but worth every penny.

Room Tip: Room 315 is a corner room with a partial water view. Lots of sun.

My wife and I spent six nights at the Vanderbilt Grace early in July and had one of the best times in a hotel that we have ever had.
All the staff from cleaners, waiting staff and valets right up to the General Manager, a very pleasant young lady, were friendly and helpful from the minute we arrived to the minute we left.
The level of service we experienced at the Grace was second to none. The rooms were spotless and extremely comfortable. The dining experience was excellent.
If we were asked to single out one member of staff for extra praise it would have to be Danielle. Nothing was too much trouble for this young lady! She was always cheerful and friendly and seemed genuinly happy to see all the guests at the hotel.
The hotel itself is in an excellent position and should we ever return to Newport, which I am sure we will, we will stay nowhere else but at the Vanderbilt Grace. Such was the quality of our stay wherever we visit in the world in future we will look first to see if there is a Grace hotel at our destination.
We have judged all aspects of the hotel to be excellent except the spa. The only reason for not rating the spa was because we never used it (too busy!) However we did go to look at it and it too appeared to be spotless with a nice ambience.

We stayed in one of the loft rooms with my daughter. The view from the roof (with the rooftop bar) is not to be missed. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We didn't try the restaurant at the hotel because there are so many places within a short walk. Breakfast on the terrace was nice in the morning. It was a great experience, and can't wait to go back.
