We booked our room for July 4th weekend. Going in, I knew that there was a lot for this quaint little hotel to live up to. We were paying quite a bit for a standard room and no pool on-site during the month of July. Upon arriving, we felt like we were the only guests at the hotel. The staff... More

I have been to many countries and stayed in many hotels, I alway book 4 or 5 star hotels, but nothing has ever compared to this. I have been meaning to write about this hotel for years, but with two young children it wasn't top of my list of things to do. However, now I feel I must tell anyone... More

Reservations: Made by phone; Julie was wonderful and the follow up was great. Check In: Seamless. We arrived early in the a.m., and our room, of course, was not ready. We were given cups of coffee, our luggage was retrieved from our car, we were encouraged to sit out on the lawn to relax. Very welcoming. Staff: As others have... More

Just got back from a 2-night midweek getaway to the Chanler. It was a truly outstanding experience. I stayed in the Georgian one night and the Block Island villa the 2nd. Originally, I had "settled" for the Georgian because my first choice of room (Block Island) was booked for the first night I would be there. However, it turned out... More

My husband and I stayed in the Louis XVI room which was beautifully furnished and afforded us a spectacular waterfront view. The grounds are perfectly maintained and the service was exceptional...the staff were welcoming, warm and friendly and always eager to be... More

Perfection. Beautifully decorated individual rooms--some with fireplaces and terraces-- heated tile bathroom floors and large soaking tubs; slippers, robes and luxury linens; flat screen televisions etc. Ideal setting at the beginning of the Cliff Walk overlooking the water with a terrace restaurant/bar. Responsive and accommodating concierge service and a luxury car service into town at your whim--to and from the... More

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!
