Overview

Romantic hotel well-suited for couples
Guest rooms are on the smaller side

Nestled on the shore just steps from Newport's popular Cliff Walk, The Chanler's strongest feature is its breathtaking scenery. But there are plenty more compelling reasons to stay here. For one, the rooms are designed and named for royalty – the Louis XIV and the English Tudor suites are among the most dramatic. Despite its regal decor, each comes appointed with modern amenities like Fresh bath products, free Wi-Fi access, wet bars, heated bathroom floors and DVD players. Recent guests praise the hotel's easy access to the picturesque Cliff Walk and tasty cuisine served at Cara, the crown jewel of the property's three dining venues. The Chanler's attentive staff and romantic, tranquil setting also wins over visitors. Though a stay at the hotel will surely thin out your wallet, previous visitors say the indulgence is well worth the cost.

Take dinner at The Spiced Pair, where classic New England dishes flirt with French influences, like the traditional butter poached Maine lobster with fiddlehead ferns and fennel celery mousseline, or the tangy Muscovy duck breast, paired with rhubarb, tangerine curd, purple potato, and Calabria ginger jus.
