Vanderbilt Grace

41 Mary St., Newport, Rhode Island, 02840, USA

Built in 1909 by Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt for his mistress, Agnes O'Brien Ruiz, this Grace Hotels property aims to impress, and does. More than 70 early-20th-century paintings, including magazine cover illustrations for Vogue and the New Yorker, hang in common areas on permanent loan from the hotel's prior owner. The rooftop deck has cocktail service and a spectacular view of Newport Harbor. Enormous guest rooms have separate sitting areas and flat-screen TVs, DVD players, iPod docks, and high-quality mattresses—you'll be asked to choose your pillows and room scent before arrival. Informal dining is available in the Conservatory and formal dining in Muse.
