Originally built in 1909 by Alfred Vanderbilt of the wealthy Vanderbilt family, The Vanderbilt is a vintage Newport mansion meticulously restored to its former glory, just minutes from the vibrant Newport waterfront. Summer 2021 has marked a new era for this historic downtown mansion. With newly reimagined interiors, The Vanderbilt is the modern and stylish destination of Newport. From an airy glass conservatory to a rooftop bar with unforgettable views and a tavern-inspired dining room that opens out onto a sun-dappled, ivy-covered garden. The Vanderbilt is crackling with Gilded Age glamour.
