Celebrations at The Vanderbilt A gathering for every occasion


During annual trips, the grandparents have watched the littlest ones learn to swim and cousins have become true friends as secrets are shared over s’mores roasted over the Garden Terrace firepit. These are the kinds of traditions that bring families closer together at The Vanderbilt. We help make memories, beginning with our open-hearted welcome and our exceptional location just minutes from the charming Newport waterfront. Our venues and accommodations give you space to connect with each other—whether you are planning a family reunion, milestone anniversary, or other celebrations.

Reconnect in Newport

Timeless Elegance

The Vanderbilt has debuted newly reimagined and refreshed guest rooms and suites, providing fresh and modern accommodations infused with the glamour of our downtown Mansion. Handcrafted architectural details, unique furnishings and flirtatious eccentricities, make for a one-of-a-kind East Coast escape.

Relax & Reset

Visit The Spa at The Vanderbilt, our exclusive, urban spa offering tailored and curated treatments. Relax and restore body and soul with a visit to our exquisite treatment rooms, sauna and steam showers. Indulge in a unique hot stone massage that uses stones washed under the breaking waters of the Atlantic Shoreline and a signature body treatment that incorporates natural botanicals. Warmed by a cozy fireplace, our Tranquility Room is ideal for couples, mother-daughters or friends who wish to unwind following their treatment.

Unforgettable Dining

Our contemporary New England cuisine has been rooted in the local and seasonal long before they were the mots du jour on menus across the country.


Spend your escape in the mansion and beyond exploring the wonders of Newport. From a sailboat ride on the idyllic Narragansett Bay to learning about the time-honored tradition of Scrimshaw, or spending cocktail hour on a plush velvet sofa in the reimagined Mezzanine for an insightful tarot reading, curate your time on the coast.
