A romantic waterfront mansion in Newport

20 Rooms / 6 Suites

A palatial mansion completed in 1873 as the summer residence of New York Congressman John Winthrop Chanler, The Chanler 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 – and this is intentional. Although it's just a short distance from downtown Newport and overlooks The Cliff Walk, one of the city's most admired attractions, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel and its five-acre estate is designed to have the atmosphere of a restful, romantic sanctuary away from — yet close to — the action.

Originally called Cliff Lawn, the mansion became The Chanler in 2003 after an extensive, historically inspired renovation that led to the property being known as one of Newport's most acclaimed places to stay. Each of the hotel's 20 guest rooms is beautifully and uniquely appointed, and its main sitting room welcomes guests with its comfortable opulence. 

Enjoy The Chanler's stunning ocean views, take a stroll around its beautifully tended gardens, dine at Spiced Pear, the hotel's renowned restaurant and even pamper yourself with luxurious in-room spa treatments. This, and much more, is all available to you at the luxury hotel.
