Just returned from a 3 night stay at The Chanler. Absolutely beautiful 30 room mansion with breathtaking views of the ocean. Stayed in the Briar Rose cottage. Very private courtyard with hot tub, fountain and plenty of furniture to sit and enjoy the quiet. Had dinner at the Spiced Pear which was delicious. As stated by another reviewer staff is... More

We had three glorious nights at The Chanler. The Ocean sets a perfect backdrop to this magnificent hotel; our room, complete with private hot tub and sauna was perfection. The staff could not have been more professional and attentive. Treat yourself and go!

The Chanler spoiled us rotten. You can't beat that complimentary car service. Charles, Adam, Steve and all of the valets and chauffeurs were incredibly friendly and helpful, as were the front desk staff, Halie and Katie. A few thoughts off the top of my mind: - I might have been the only guest excited over the DVD library--quaint touch. -... More

Had a wonderful time at The Chanler. We stayed for a special anniversary from June 19-23rd. Our stay was absolutely perfect (including the weather). Stayed in the Colonial room is ground level which is accessed from an outside patio that overlooks the Chanler cliff lawn. The patio has some chairs tables for sitting out with a view of the water...

We stayed in the resort May 31, 2014 for 3 nights & thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We opted to stay each night in a different room & enjoyed all of them. Our favorite though was the Ocean Villa called Martha's Vineyard. The view is wonderful, as is the outdoor private hot tub & sauna. Our breakfasts were delicious each morning... More

From the time we checked in until the time we checked out we were treated like royalty. I had been wanting to visit the Newport Mansions for some time and came upon the Chanler's website. After viewing all of the beautiful rooms, I chose Peonies and Ivy, one of the Garden Villa rooms because it boasted a private veranda and... More

We were familiar with the hotel and it's gorgeous location, but the unexpected surprise was the warm friendly service that we have found some other luxury hotels to be lacking. From check-in, to dinner, to check-out, we were made to feel welcome and comfortable beyond our expectations. We stayed in Peonies and Ivy which is a garden villa with a... More

One of my favorite spots in the New England area is Newport RI and staying at the The Chanler just once in your life while visiting Newport is a must. The view from the hotel is gorgeous and while it is a little costly it is well worth it even if you just stay one night it is worth it... More

We are more the Marriott type with an occasional Hilton or Hyatt thrown in. This was chosen for a special occasion. This was the most expensive one-night accommodation we have ever splurged on. A Garden Villa, with tax, well over $500 for the night (breakfast included). When our 24 hrs or so with The Chanler was complete, we actually felt... More

This hotel has one of the best locations in Newport, at the start of the Cliff Walk, with breathtaking ocean views. The property is maintained immaculately, the rooms are all unique and different from each other, the staff is friendly and accommodating. We had our wedding there and everything went absolutely smoothly and wonderfully. The restaurant and the bar have... More
