Welcome to The Vanderbilt. Inspired by the insatiable wanderlust and rebellious spirit of Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, the historic downtown mansion once owned by the businessman and scion has been reinterpreted for the modern era as a lively and stylish social destination. From a secret bar tucked into a corner of the sumptuous Doris Duke-inspired parlor serving inspired libations such as Turkish Espresso martinis or a Hunter House Cooler with fresh pineapple, lemon and fino sherry - to the dramatic navy blue walls of The Dining Room offering guests classic New England fare with a modern twist, the scene at The Vanderbilt is crackling with coastal curiosities and alluring eccentricities waiting to be discovered.
One of the best-kept secrets in all of Newport, The Roof Deck at the very top of the hotel is the perfect al fresco spot to watch the sunset and take in sweeping views of the historic city and port in the Spring and Summer.
