The Vanderbilt Grace

Newport, Rhode Island

While in Newport, it seems fitting to stay at a former titan’s “cottage,” and the Vanderbilt Grace (originally built by Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt), a charming old mansion with 33 stylish new guest rooms and suites, is an ideal choice. Located just minutes from the waterfront, the 1909 property is one of the few private homes of the era operating as a luxury hotel.

Explore: A guided tour offers an overview of Newport for first timers, or go it alone, and zero in on specific mansions. To continue the Vanderbilt theme, we recommend a visit to the over-the-top Breakers, followed by a cliff walk.

Dine: To make the butter-poached smoked lobster, chef Cartwright uses a medical device designed for administering marijuana, delivering just the right amount of smoke for a delicious kick. Cheddar-glazed beef tenderloin with a pancetta Merlot sauce was perfectly tender; the cinnamon-sugar beignets, impossibly light.
