The Vanderbilt Grace

Newport, RI  2017

Newport, RI is famous for it's mansions which were all built towards the end of the 1800's and early 1900's by some of the wealthiest families in America at that time.  They were often used as summer homes and as such might only be occupied during the summer months.  This mansion was built in 1909 by Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, one of those Vanderbilts.  The mansion has been restored and now operates as a boutique hotel in Newport, featuring a number of luxury suites.  I'm not sure what the room rates are to stay an evening here, but I guess if I have to ask, I probably couldn't afford to stay here.
