Built in 1868 on a windswept bluff with views of the Atlantic, the Victorian hotel once catered to moneyed aristocrats but was eventually torn down.

Indoor and outdoor pools make this a good choice for families.

Formerly Vanderbilt Hall.

In 1909, the Vanderbilts gave the property to the city of Newport; it's been a hotel since 1997.

The 137-year-old hotel has been in the same family since 1969. The 16 rooms are decorated with antique furniture, and some have vaulted wood-beamed ceilings and canopy beds.
