Excellent location for the mansions and Cliff walk. Beautiful property. Stayed in the Georgian room - just perfect. Beautiful views. Breakfast was included and was excellent also. Would highly recommend. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. Not a bad thing to say about any of it.

I expected a lot from The Chanler, and the staff exceeded my expectations. From the warm welcome to the exceptional service, my stay was fantastic. Major props to the hotel's chef: the food is delicious. I stayed in the luxuriously-appointed Louis XVI suite, which has a large terrace with an incredible view of the Atlantic Ocean and Cliff Walk. I... More

The charm of New England combined with the elegance of Europe is the best description of our experience at the Chanler. Our room ,overlooking the ocean, was exquisite with private enclosed courtyard, outdoor hot tub and private deck for al fresco dining. The interior, as well, surpassed our expectations with a nine jet shower room and king size canopy bed... More

We were celebrating my husbands 40th birthday. Everything was wonderful. The hotel helped us to find a babysitter so we could enjoy a nice meal at the chef's table. Food was amazing. When I asked my kids (6,4 and 8 months) what they liked about the hotel they said the food, the jacuzzi bath and the people were really nice!!

I wanted you to know how disappointed my husband & I were at our last stay at the inn. We reserved the Federal in order to celebrate our 15th anniversary. FYI... this was the very first room we booked when we embarked on our relationship with Chanler years ago. At that time, we were so delighted; that we recommended my... More

We went to the Chanler to check out the rooms for a stay and stopped at the bar for a few drinks, then decided to have something to eat. the Spiced Pear could not accommodate us so we decided to have dinner at the bar. We sat at a table by the window overlooking the beach, what a view! The... More

We came here for the weekend with another family for our friends surprise 50th birthday weekend. The Chanler staff helped keep the secret. More importantly the service was effortless, everyone was sincere and most helpful. Cole, Kevin, Tarsi, Stephanie, and Laura made our weekend, including the fabulous cuisine, memorable. The rooms -- we stayed in the Empire and Georgian --... More

This is a beautiful property - inside and out! This place was bought and completely refurbished with beauty and luxury in mind and they did it! Restaurants are outstanding, the location is gorgeous and the rooms are beautiful. Stunning bathrooms. HOWEVER, we stayed in the most luxurious rooms (the Ocean Villas) and unfortunately, the noise heard in the room at... More

My girlfriend surprised me with an overnight stay last weekend, and it was nothing short of incredible. We have been to The Chanler several times over the past couple years, and each visit has been a delight! We love staying in a different room each time we visit, as they are individually unique but all are spectacularly appointed down to... More

The room was comfortable and filled with antiques. Staff was attentive. View's of the harbor were lovely, easy walk to historic areas. Restaurant was very good. No exercise room (except for walking of the cliff walk), no pool. Even without those common amenities, it is still a great place to stay and to enjoy Newport.
