Recently had a weekend getaway to Newport and was lucky enough to book a room at the Chanler. 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 of service. The hotel provided car service for our trips downtown at any hour. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch on the patio...food was excellent. If I were to mention any disappointment about our stay it is that sadly the dining room was booked and we could not sample the offered dinner items! However the overall experience overshadowed this minor inconvenience.
