A Luxury Newport, RI Boutique Hotel
Welcome to The Chanler at Cliff Walk
A palatial mansion completed in 1873 as the summer residence of New York Congressman John Winthrop Chanler, The Chanler at Cliff Walk blends the opulence of Newport's storied Gilded Age with the exquisite luxuries and amenities of today.
Driving through The Chanler's main gates, you get the impression that you're arriving at someone’s grand private residence rather than a place of business. Although it's just a short distance from downtown Newport and overlooks The Cliff Walk, one of the city's most admired attractions, The Chanler and its four-acre estate is designed to be a restful, romantic sanctuary away from — yet close to — the action.
Enjoy The Chanler's stunning ocean views, take a stroll around its beautifully tended gardens, dine at Cara, the hotel's renowned restaurant, and even pamper yourself with luxurious in-room spa treatments. There are 20 guest rooms at The Chanler, each custom-designed and elegantly decorated. In addition to the lovely rooms located inside the mansion, the hotel offers Garden Villas and Ocean Villas that are accessed by their private outdoor entrances.
Boasting beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean, Cara is the crown jewel of The Chanler providing guests a memorable, curated dining experience. Translating to "dear one" in Italian and "soul friend" in Gaelic, Cara's name conveys a simple, yet beautiful, juxtaposition to the restaurant’s creative dishes.
