The Vanderbilt

41 Mary Street, Newport

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 Vanderbilt scored: 94.86. More information: aubergeresorts.com
