The Chanler at Cliff Walk Reviews
“The hotel itself, the grounds, location, history, food, drinks, staff, bartenders, rooms, views, chocolates on the pillows and many other simple things that make a big difference—there is nothing not to love about staying at The Chanler."
“We came to the Chanler to celebrate our anniversary, and we are so happy that we choose this hotel. Our room was the Louis XVI room and it was absolutely beautiful! It had an outside deck that overlooked the beach! It was so relaxing to sit outside on our deck and enjoy the stunning views. We enjoyed breakfast , lunch and dinner at the Spiced Pear and all were delicious! The lobster bisque was outstanding! The spiced pear sparkling wine was so very yummy! We used the complimentary car service to and from the hotel and the drivers were prompt and knowledgeable about the area. It is truly a wonderful service to have for guests at the hotel! We also used the complimentary bikes provided by the Chanler, and had a fun ride around the town. The location of the hotel is at the beginning (or end) of the famed cliff walk, and we thoroughly enjoyed the spectacular views of the mansions and water along the way. Lastly, the staff was so accommodating and friendly. They made us feel right at home and were so attentive to our every need. We cannot wait to come back to this exceptional hotel!"

“The most beautiful place in the northeast United States. The food,service,totally 5 star. The staff could not do enough to make our trip totally outstanding. I would love to Go back and visit again. Ps. The bartenders and valet drivers are the greatest."

“In Newport for a wedding and feel fortunate to have chosen Chanler for our stay. The Georgian Room had a full ocean view and was charmingly appointed (every room at Chanler is unique). The hotel's location is itself amazing - next to the beach and right at the beginning of Cliff Walk, from which one can stroll between the ocean and Newport's grand mansions. Breakfast is fresh, reasonably priced and thoughtfully prepared. Service in every regard is impeccable - with house-provided transportation if you want to explore Newport without taking out your own car. A real treat."

“My fourth stay at the hotel and 5th room - this place is a marvel. Set right on the famed cliff walk, you get beautiful water views with enchanting décor. Restaurant with lovely bar in the hotel. You will feel that you have been transported to another century except with modern touches for your every comfort, such as heated tiles and all the necessary technology. Two things in particular I love that are unique to the inn - the working fireplaces year around and the car service. The complimentary car service should set to rest any concern about not staying in places right on Thames - the "downtown"/wharf area of Newport is a straight shot from the hotel - 5/10 minute drive and I never had to wait for a car.
The rooms are glorious. Have stayed in Renaissance, Block Island, Louis, Empire and Georgian and loved them all. The most luxe are probably the Renaissance and Louis and the ocean villas, though if you are looking for rooms at a more modest price point, the smaller room are very beautiful also. There is ample opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in the garden and restaurant and of course the cliff walk starts right at the inn, just incredible!
The service here is exemplary. The staff are so thoughtful and hardworking. Very wonderful management. The chef also accommodated several of my requests, for which I am so grateful. Having a restaurant/bar in the hotel is so convenient and the food is delicious, patrons come from all over just to eat there as it is highly acclaimed.
Wonderful, wonderful place - I cannot praise this place highly enough. A very unique and outstanding property, and I will surely return many more times!"
“The accommodations, staff and settings were beyond expectations. It is pricey but when it has to be the perfect place this is it. The views, the cliff, and restaurant were spot on. The staff went beyond friendly. They actively sought to anticipate any request. It was close to downtown Newport. It was easily walkable but they provide a shuttle service too."
“My wife and I chose The Chanler as the place to spend our wedding night. We were chauffeured from our wedding venue in near by Bristol. Once arrived, we were promptly greeted with assistance for our luggage. My wife and I walked in still dressed from the ceremony (wedding dress and tuxedo) and felt right at home. After we checked in and settled in our room, we decided to have dinner at the Spiced Pear (a separate review) which was excellent. Our room had beautiful views of first beach and the ocean. As expected, everything was of top quality, from the service to the amenities. Our bed was cloud which we slept beautifully on. The bathroom had a large jacuzzi tub and a large shower. The staff was professional, knowledgable and helpful. Unfortunately, we had to catch a flight early the next morning, so we did not get to enjoy it all fully. Perhaps will celebrate an anniversary here in the future. The Chanler is luxurious, beautiful and offers everything and more that you would expect in a 5 star hotel."

“The service was exceptional, the property World class, the property was immaculate. The service is second to none, from the valets, to check in, to the bar at the spiced pear, to check out. One of the best hotels in America.”

“Overall a relaxing and enjoyable experience in a wonderful facility with a great restaurant and excellent views. The staff is helpful without being solicitous. The restaurant is one of the best we have eaten in, including dining in NYC.”
