Expert Review

Located above Easton’s Beach at the start of the scenic Cliff Walk, The Chanler – a circa-1863 mansion that was gutted and lavishly refurbished in 2000 – is a destination unto itself that also offers easy access to the best of Newport. Its 20 elaborate, romance-ready rooms – each with a gas fireplace, massive Jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower, and heated bathroom floor tiles – are individually decorated with European furnishings, antiques, and some of the most comfortable beds imaginable. Be sure to request a complimentary butler-drawn bath; just ask and a candlelit, rose-petal-strewn tub will await when you return to your room. Enjoy dinner in the hotel’s wonderful restaurant, The Spiced Pear, where chef Thomas Duffy’s modern American cuisine features fresh takes on classic New England ingredients. Just outside the hotel lies the legendary 3.5-mile Cliff Walk, where you can join local dog walkers as you stroll past Gilded Age mansions built by Vanderbilts, Astors, and Dukes.
