ANSWER: The  Vanderbilt Grace, formerly Vanderbilt Hall, 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 The Vanderbilt Grace, the mansion comprises a luxurious hotel with 33 rooms and luxury suites in Newport Rhode Island, a sumptuous spa and fitness center with indoor and outdoor pools. The hotel features two restaurants including Muse, a fine dining restaurant created by renowned New England chef, Jonathan Cartwright, where the best local ingredients are on offer in imaginative menus which change throughout the year.
