We just loved the Chanler! We were originally a bit nervous bringing our 5 year old and worried it wouldn't be the best for a family hotel. Boy, we were wrong! Upon arrival, they had welcome champagne for us and a shirley temple for our little guy. They knew us and called him by his name the entire stay...which he thought was "super cool"! What stands out here is the impeccable service. Christina, Paige and Craig were all wonderful, to name a few. We enjoyed the complimentary Cadillac service to the wharf area each night and Craig was a delight. We stayed in English Trellis and enjoyed the outdoor hot tub, evening chocolates and toffee. The property is gorgeous overlooking cliff walk. The Chanler exceeded our expectations. I did a lot of research when booking this hotel-and if you are reading this--what are you waiting for--book The Chanler now for an amazing experience.

From the moment we checked in, until the moment we checked out - every experience was beyond our expectations. Every staff member went out of their way to acknowledge you when they saw you and asked if you needed anything. The food and drinks were just fantastic. The 5 star rating is seen in everything they do! We can't wait to return again and again.

I have spoiled myself over the years visiting The Chanler. Last week I returned to enjoy since it has received the 5 star Forbes acclaim. Happily, the service has finally been recognized for the excellence it has always deserved. Visit for the decor, the service , the incredible dining (thanks, Jacob and staff) but if you love the ocean and the surf and the sounds of the gulls right outside your elegant balcony - stay in one of the Ocean Villas and you will not find a better location in all of Newport. Thanks to the incredible staff (shout out to Andrew) who will not hesitate to cater to your every whim. I am not crazy about the new phone system, but I am an old lady so will learn.

Wanted to surprise for my wife our 30th; Chanler's excellence exceeded all expectations. We've stayed in many 5-star resorts, world-wide. Chanler set a higher bar for 5-stars. Incomparable service across enchanting settings made for the best weekend ever in our 30 years together.

We've stayed at The Chanler several times now and it's never failed us. A classic Astor mansion on Newport's famed Mansion Row, it overlooks a breathtaking stretch of ocean. Our room was the Nantucket Suite, which feels like a seaside turn of the century cottage, yet with full luxury trappings. It has it's own private courtyard replete with private jacuzzi and steamroom, which we took full advantage of - even though it was around 12 degrees outside with snow on the ground. The restaurant was spectacular as was the bar, which feels much like the Gritti Palace's bar in Venice and The Hassler in Rome. Gorgeous wood, ocean views....classic in every stretch of the imagination. Service is excellent as is location. Doesn't come cheap but well worth it.

Staying at The Chanler is like being one of the owners of the Newport "Cottages" - an incredible property, with amazing history, awesome staff, and service that cares for you the way full-time staff would if you were well-to-do. The level of detail in everything is superb; I cannot in my wildest dreams imagine anything else they could do to improve on this. I cannot wait to return. (It's not cheap, but the value for money is high.)

Excellent stay in this 20 room hotel originally built as a summer residence for a NY congressman in the late 1800s. Very historic and charming. Views and adjacent town wonderful. cliff walk is fun and unique. One minor point is the service is a bit stiff. Its clear the staff staff are all very well trained and motivated, but some of that comes of as less natural and a bit contrived.

Overall, a great experience! Very little to really improve. A few minor issues, mostly with the restaurant. A bit pricey but was extremely nice. Manager and staff were very helpful and accommodating. Definitely felt pampered!

My husband and I love The Chanler and have been many times; however, this last time we were disappointed with an uncomfortable mattress, which we've never experienced here. All the seasoned staff who were excellent seem to have departed and there are lots of new inexperienced staff that just don't quite offer the same feel of being completely welcomed and taken care of.
