About Vanderbilt Hotel an Auberge Resorts Collection

Vanderbilt is an historic boutique hotel in Rhode Island just minutes from the delightful waterfront of Newport, and is one of the town’s best kept secrets.

Originally built by Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, a scion of the wealthy Vanderbilt family, the 1909 property is a vintage Newport mansion that has been restored to its former glory and is one of the few private homes of the era to operate for guests as a fully functioning and top luxury hotel in Rhode Island. Today, as Vanderbilt, the mansion comprises a luxurious hotel with 33 rooms and luxury suites in Newport Rhode Island and a lavish spa and fitness center with indoor and outdoor pools. The hotel features its signature restaurant, The Vanderbilt Grill, a sumptuous restaurant where the best local ingredients are on offer in imaginative menus which change throughout the year. During the summer months the hotel’s Roof Deck Bar opens up to become the destination of choice to sip elegant cocktails and sparkling champagne whilst watching the sun set over the harbour below.

Vanderbilt offers the perfect holiday retreat amid the classical splendor of a Newport mansion, yet within minutes lie the waterfront and the many cultural attractions of Newport. The boutique hotel also represents one of the finest addresses in Rhode Island and offers a distinguished venue for weddings, events and other special occasions in a unique vintage setting.

Guests can savor exquisite, delicious food and drink and the attention to detail that has become a hallmark of the property. Guests and media alike have acclaimed Vanderbilt their top luxury hotel in Rhode Island.

Vanderbilt is one of the most fascinating boutique hotels in the USA and was formerly the Vanderbilt Hall. Set on and around the waterfronts of Newport RI, these coastline vintage mansion properties are an international visitor attraction for tourists throughout the world who come to step back in time and experience the glamour of another era – the so-called Gilded Age – when leisure, luxury and elegance were all.
