We have been to Newport many times but this is our first stay at The Chanler. We were celebrating a special birthday for my wife and the entire Staff went above and beyond to make our stay special. The location is perfect- close to the port/shopping and beautiful views overlooking the Cliff Walk. We ate at Cara which was a very unique and enjoyable treat! Each and every detail of the eight courses were well thought out and perfectly presented- A night we will always remember. This was our first stay but will not be our last!

Certainly one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Rooms, service, food, setting, all like nowhere else. No request was an issue for the staff. They went out of their way to accommodate. Will definitely be back.

My husband booked a gorgeous room at the Chanler for our wedding night. We only stayed one night as we were leaving for our honeymoon the next day but I sure wish we could have stayed longer. This hotel is rated top in the country for a reason. The service was great and the room was spectacular. We arrived at the hotel around midnight and there was someone waiting for us, they grabbed our luggage and walked us to our room. They had music playing, champagne chilling and little sweets set up for us. They even wrote us a congratulatory wedding note. We had a beautiful big terrace that we had breakfast on the next day. The room service was delicious. If you want a special getaway this plate is the one to book. It’s worth the splurge.

The Chanler Cliff Walk is the finest hotel in Newport. The exquisitely upholstered and designed rooms, each with a unique theme, provider for peaceful escape with an ocean view. The culinary experience at The Chanler, led by Chef Jacob Jasinski, with the tasting menu at Cara, the now famous burger at the Cafe, and a breakfast where each item is better than the last, overlooking the ocean, is unmatched in Rhode Island or anywhere in New England really. The location of the hotel, at the trailhead of the famous Cliff Walk, cannot be topped. There is a feeling, sitting on the lawn at The Chanler, overlooking Easton Beach and towards the Atlantic Ocean, that one is in a beautiful Italian village off the Amalfi Coast. The fresh gardens, flowers, and pristine landscaping of The Chanler elicits a unique tour de force of the senses. Last but certainly not least, the staff at The Chanler is absolutely first-rate - you will not find a better group of friendly and service-oriented staff members at any hotel in the US. Now, with all this said, you get what you pay for - the Chanler is an expensive treat to experience. However, if cost is not a factor in your decision on where to stay while in Newport, I cannot recommend more strongly booking a room at The Chanler - and make sure to book a table at Cara too to experience the blind tasting menu with Chef Jacob!

My husband and I chose to stay at the Chanler after our elopement in Newport, and I cannot begin to express how truly wonderful, magical, beautiful and fantastic our stay was. The room itself and the grounds in general are absolutely stunning!! The amenities available in the room were wonderful, and the service provided in tidying up, turning down the bed, etc. is something I've never seen before. All of the staff were so helpful, kind, and seemed genuinely pleased to be working there. The highlight of the room was the aromatherapy bath service-it was SO relaxing!! Dining at Cara, the restaurant in the hotel, was the best dining experience of my entire life. Shea and executive chef Jacob were incredibly knowledgeable, engaging, kind, and talented. The food and quality of product is unlike anything I've ever experienced, as was the service. Although the stay and the dining definitely were on the more luxurious/pricey end, I say without hesitation that it was worth every single penny we spent, and I already can't wait to go back again. Do yourself a favor and splurge for a weekend--it's an experience you will never forget!
