The Chanler at Cliff Walk Reviews


My husband and I wanted a couple of nights away for a Fall Break, so we chose The Chanler. It was wonderful! Everyone was so kinda and overly helpful! You really get personalized service here. We enjoyed relaxing on our balcony in the mornings, even had coffee and cocoa delivered to us. And in the afternoons, we enjoyed chatting outside with a glass of wine on the Adirondacks outside. One afternoon it was cool enough to enjoy the fire pit. The hotel is on the Cliff Walk so we took a nice long walk in the mornings. And they had complimentary car service within a short distance. Great service! We had an outdoor room with a hot tub, sauna, fireplace in the room, and our bathroom was very large- huge shower! Highly recommend this place!!"

A Beautiful and Magical Hotel with the Best Staff Ever!

As a single traveler, I've stayed at The Chanler multiple times, my most recent trip being August 28-31, 2018 and this review is long overdue. The property is stunning, impeccably landscaped and located right at the head of Cliff Walk - one of Newport's most popular attractions. During my recent visit, I stayed in the Martha's Vineyard Ocean Villa. The room is beautiful, overlooking the ocean, and the bathroom is huge. With all the great things I could say about the hotel, the one that always stands out is the friendly, attentive, and professional staff. Each member always remembers my name and everyone goes out of their way to make sure I get the most out of my stay. I have dietary restrictions and not only did they guarantee the gluten-free breakfast options that I requested in advance, but Chef Voskuil came out to discuss them with me personally before preparing my meal. What more could you ask for? A special shout-out to the Valet staff which is simply outstanding. I used the car service to visit the mansions and get to and from dinner each night. The Chanler is a 5-star experience all around. If I could give it 10 stars, I would. A wonderful place to relax and unwind - just 70 miles from Boston. Already looking forward to my next visit. Thank You to all my friends at The Chanler!"

Our Week in Paradise 

The Chanler is dedicated to making your stay a memorable experience. Accommodations are beyond perfection - immaculate and gorgeous. New dining experience at Cara was superb. Staff is exceptional in every level. Will definitely return next year!"

25th Anniversary Celebration 

Beautiful and memorable hotel that was a perfect place for an anniversary getaway. The room (Williamsburg) was stunning, as is the hotel's location overlooking the beach and at the start of the Cliff Walk. Sitting out on the terrace having breakfast was an experience in itself, as was reading with a cocktail on the hotel lawn. We also enjoyed taking out the hotel bikes, and the ease of the car service into town. The private dining experience for two at Cara, with our own personalized menu, flowers, and music, was a real highlight - service, food and wine for the dinner was impeccable and will live long in our memories. We hope to have the chance to return soon"

Slice of Heaven

This place is perfection. From the minute we checked in, to when we drove away, we felt pampered and wanted for nothing. Everyone working here remembers you. They almost know what you want before you ask. We drove a rental Car here, but many times would use one of their drivers, who would drop us off and pick us up for lunch, dinner, etc. The rooms were SO comfortable and I liked having a Separate back entrance.the a/c worked great and was quiet  (though it was a heat wave outside),and the bath products were incredible (called FRESH?) All the bellman, valet, managers were super friendly and remembered our names. I also liked that We had privacy and felt secure throughout the visit.  We ran the cliff walk and forty steps everyday, came back and showered, and used the hot tub on our private back porch. Of course, we saw a couple of the mansions, enjoyed the restaurants, and went to a few beaches (gooseberry, Easton, etc.) We loved breakfast at Chanler every morning."

A Gem of a Hotel 

The Chanler at Cliff Walk was a total splurge, and totally worth it. The friendly, capable staff made us feel like we were honored guests at a Vanderbilt mansion. Every detail is carefully attended to and every possible comfort provided in this spectacularly sited property high above Easton Bay. Historic building, beautiful gardens, great dining, gracious hospitality: there's nothing negative to say about this elegant--but not stuffy--historic hotel. Go and enjoy."

Top Spot Well Deserved

Just returned from 3 night stay at the Chanler of mixed business, with personal weekend tacked on. What stood out? Everything. Service, Setting, Amenities, Food. Travel 2-3 weeks a year around the world, have stayed in top establishments in Rome, Paris, Istanbul, etc. I know world class service. They've got it nailed. Is it expensive? Yes. But personally I don't mind paying if I get what I pay for. I got it here. Great job Chanler."

The offered everything you needed at anytime. First time to Newport and will absolutely go back and stay at the Chanler, it was a memorable 19th anniversary trip for us. Wouldn't have changed a thing and look forward to going back for a couples weekend next time."

The Chanler is breathtaking! From the moment we drove up to the moment we departed, the staff was outstanding! Our room (Regency) was perfect! The dining was excellent! We ate at both the Spiced Pear and the Cafe. The views from the Chanler are breathtaking! Well worth the money!."
