The Vanderbilt, Auberge Resorts Collection has recently completed a top-to-bottom re-do with the debut of its new 21 redesigned guestrooms and suites. This iconic downtown Newport mansion had already invested earlier this year in modernized public spaces, a reimagined signature restaurant, updated menus, plus the redesign of its three other eateries.

Inspiration Meets Elegance at The Vanderbilt

The design of the updated rooms and suites was inspired by its original owner, Alfred Vanderbilt, and American socialite Doris Duke. They boast a collection of luxurious vintage pieces and details, with details like a curated minibar inside a custom armoire. The updated accommodations have also been reclassified as Guild Room, Manor Suite, Mansion Loft Suite, Parlour Suite, Alfred Suite and Elise One Bed/Two Bed Suite.

The refresh also brings new experiences for your clients to dive into the destination’s history—with a cocktail in hand. The resort offers unique treats like a hidden absinthe bar with a Green Hour happy hour with absinthe-inspired light bites and cocktails, and it’s partnered with Maison Premiere to create a collaborative private dining experience, Upstairs/Downstairs: A Gilded Age Dinner Party, that kicks off December 2022. This is an immersive experience with a nine-course menu inspired by the lively parties of the early 20th century when Newport was at its extravagant best.

“The design and experience evolution at The Vanderbilt has been outstanding. From the reimagined social spaces with the most exceptional culinary offerings to the stunningly improved guest rooms and charming experiences, we can unequivocally say that the mansion is luxurious social hub of Newport,” said Jordi Vallès Blistin, general manager, The Vanderbilt, Auberge Resorts Collection, in a press statement. “It is a tremendous pleasure for all of us at The Vanderbilt to welcome guests and Newport locals to our unexpected escape.”
