About The Vanderbilt

The Vanderbilt is a historic hotel wedding venue located in Newport, Rhode Island. Initially built in 1909, this historic Newport downtown mansion has been meticulously restored to its former glory and now features 33 hotel rooms. The hotel is located just minutes from the charming waterfront and features a modern aesthetic with elegant fireplaces and stunning artwork. With the choice of taking over the whole mansion for the weekend or selecting just one of their many event areas for your wedding celebrations, the hotel really can cater for wedding events large and small. Their in-house specialists promise an unforgettable wedding experience tailored to your needs and preferences.
