I had the great pleasure of staying in this establishment when my daughter & I drove from Boston to Rhode Island. The hotel is perched atop a cliff, but one can access the water easily from the grounds of the hotel. The building, once a private residence has been converted into a small, luxury hotel. Comfortable seating dots the grassy... More

My wife and I spent a winter night here in December, and was the most romantic time since our honeymoon. The staff was excellent, including our waiter Cole. Recommend the Chefs Table at the restaurant

We loved this place. We were greeted by a glass of sparkling wine while our luggage was whisked away to our room. The room was filled with the sound of classical music when we arrived, and we turned on the fireplace and enjoyed the warmth. Very cozy, as the wind and rain were beating on the windows. The bar downstairs... More

We often go out in Newport, and this is our favorite place. Yes, it has all the features of a world-class boutique inn, such as beautiful grounds, lovely rooms, and excellent food. What sets The Chanler and Spiced Pear apart, though, is the people. All of them, from the managers to wait staff to valets, are genuine. They are very... More

You can't get better than this if staying in Newport. You will not be disappointed. We stayed for a couple days to tour the Mansions the week before Christmas. The inn is elegant, beautiful, and extremely comfortable. The staff couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. They will drive you to and from town as requested, at no charge. Needless to... More

This was our 3rd stay at The Chanler in the past 4 years. Each time is a great experience. This time, we splurged a bit more & enjoyed the Nantucket ocean villa, facing the water with its own entry and private sauna & hot tub.
