“Worth the price of admission”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

With its location adjacent to the beautiful Cliff Walk in Newport, R.I., the Chanler Hotel has a real advantage over the other high-end resorts in this area. But then, there is so much more- beautifully appointed and well-thought out rooms and suites, gorgeous water views, attentive and warm service- and car service! We stayed in the Regency room, but are looking forward to trying the Federal and the Block Island Suite.

Room Tip: Check out each room on their website photos. There is a period perfect room for every taste- from Re...

My husband and I stayed at The Chanler for our 15th Wedding Anniversary. We stayed in Block Island and I must say the room was AMAZING!! The view was stunning and the amenities were even better than I expected. We also enjoyed a 7 course meal at the private dining room of The Spiced Pear. The meal was well thought out and the wine pairings were perfect. Every person we encountered at The Chanler was professional and kind. Everyone was smiling and it seemed obvious to both of us that The Chanler really cared about making our experience special. Every person made sure to wish us a Happy Anniversary; its those little touches that make a place special. We will definitely be back! If you are concerned about the price of the ocean villas; don't be! They are worth every penny!

We stayed at the Chanler overnight on Mother's Day. Although we arrived more than an hour early our room was ready and we were able to check-in before heading out for a stroll on the Cliff Walk. We had the pear sparkling wine upon check-in, which we took up to the room and finished after our walk out on the lawn sitting in the Adirondack chairs. Every detail at the Chanler is attended to...from the chocolate covered pears in our room that we polished off for our mid-afternoon snack to the heated tile floor in the bathroom. We used the car service to take us down to Thames Street for dinner and again later for pick-up. The young man driving couldn't have been more accommodating. Our room on the third floor (32) had a gas fireplace and a water view. It was lovely and the turn-down service with the box of chocolate mints was appreciated. Breakfast the next morning from the regular menu was delicious. I had the eggs Benedict and my husband had the Portuguese sausage and eggs. I had always wanted to stay here and with the sniqueaway special I was able to make it a reality. So glad we did!

The staff was AMAZING! Everyone we encountered during our stay was friendly, professional, accommodating and always pleasant. Our room was quite large, and even though it was decorated so elegantly, it was very comfortable, romantic...and pristine. The housekeeping staff does such a great job of keeping the room fresh with magical timing skills. The car service was always at the ready taking you wherever we wished to go... and picking us up just as promptly. The included breakfasts were delicious each day. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at The Spiced Pear and cocktails and jazz in the cozy bar...both with spectacular views. It's not often that guests are made to feel so welcome, comfortable and special. Do splurge and spend at least one night at this exquisite and dreamlike place!

We got a great deal here from sniqueaway and stayed this past weekend. Our room was just beautiful and the bathroom was even nicer! The staff was friendly and couldn't do enough for us. It was like stepping back into another century. John drove us to and from Marble House because time was tight and he was concerned we would have difficulty finding parking. We had dessert but not dinner at the Spiced Pear and it was wonderful. We sat in the bar area and there was a particularly bright and close moon (time of year) and it was lovely over the water. The room was ready when we got there and there is just nothing bad to say. Breakfast the next day was included and there was lots of choices. In all, a great experience. The only caveat was that we found the bed uncomfortable- but maybe this is because we are used to a harder mattress. We will definitely return.
