Perfect stay. Rooms are different and elegant. Staff is attentive, professional and friendly. The entire experience is why we keep returning. Spice Pear Restaurant is without question the best restaurant in Newport. Worth the trip.

From the moment we pulled up to the front door until we departed in the snow, we had a truly wonderful experience at the Chanler. Each member of the staff was very welcoming, friendly, and helpful, which made our stay quite pleasant and stress free. The building and interiors are classically elegant, but are well kept and do not show...

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...

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...

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.
