    Historical Traveler Reviews The Chanler at Cliff Walk Newport

    We have visited three times since Sept..each one better than the last!!

    from

    My girlfriend stumbled upon The Chanler last September during one of our regular visits to Newport. We booked The Georgian room not knowing what to expect. Upon being escorted to our room, we walked in and were speechless! Not one detail was out of place..fireplace in room..heated floor tiles in bathroom..5 head shower..LARGE doule whirlpool in bath..LCD panel in bath...TV with DVD player...and the bed TO DIE FOR!

    Since then we have stayed in the LOUIS XVI room (balcony overlooking the ocean Cliff Walk..three chandeliers) and The Renaissance Suite (TOO many decadent features to mention). The Chanler's Spiced Pear restaurant is a gourmet's dream come true. We have eaten there for dinner and brunch. If you want a romantic weekend away in Newport THIS is the only place to stay. My girlfriend put it best during our recent trip to Las Vegas. We walked into our suite at Bellagio with with sweeping view of the entire strip - overlooking the fountains. When I asked her what she thought she said "It's great but it's not The Chanler". rlz/cgc

    Lovely but can be inconsistent

    from

    The Chanler is situated in an excellent spot for waterviews, the Spiced Pear maximizes the view. We have enjoyed wonderful dinners, brunches and several occassions of drinks both at the bar and on the patio. The presentation has always been elegant, the service has been inconsistent. Often staff are not able to answer questions and refer you to other staff. Frequently we have had glassware with rim chips - thus needing to send beverages back. However, one of the wait staff, Jill, has always been top knotch and Steve at the bar is great. I also had an opportunity to stay in the Empire Room - which was just wonderful.....and elegant- the heated bathroom tiles and the whirlpool tub were so enjoyable on a cold wintery evening. At check in, though we did not receive any information about morning breakfast, coffee or anything- so we ended up going out for breakfast on our own. It was off season and no staff were to be found at 7am as we wandered through the dining and kitchen areas. I would recommend that information be provided at check in as to the availability or coffe/tea/breakfast. We would return, but we will certainly ask more questions.

    Wonderful Meal

    from

    One of the best restaurants in Newport. We ate at the Spiced Pear last August with friends shortly after the anticipated opening of the Inn.

    Everything was delicious. The only disappointment was my dessert which was 24kt chocolate. My husband had the creme brulee with herbs d'Provence and it was fabulous. Everything was freshly prepared and presented in a very beautiful manner. It was so good that we gave my parents a gift certificate to dine there. The restaurant is beautiful.

    Good as it gets

    from

    The hotel is quit lovely. I didnt stay at the hotel only had dinner.

    The grounds were beautiful and the food even better. I agree with the articles lately calling it the best in Rhode Island and probably New england

    Unbelievable!!!

    from

    This is by far the best hotel we've ever stayed at. Every amenity is taken care of. The restaurant rivals the best around the globe. Very romantic for our 20th anniversary!

    Totally overpriced

    from

    Food not there yet, service missed a sense of genuine hospitality overall over rated

    Beverage Blunder

    from

    I treated my husband to brunch for his birthday recently. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience- food, service, great view, until the bill arrived. I've been to several fine brunches but have never been charged for non-alcoholic beverages (coffee and orange juice). Refills also! We couldn't believe the $19 charge on the bill. For $35 per person we felt at least the coffee could be included. We e-mailed the Chanler after our meal to express our thoughts but received no response. Too bad. It was an unpleasant ending to an otherwise very nice meal.

    Perfection in every aspect

    from

    The new Chanler hotel and the Spiced Pear restaurant are absolutely fabulous. The decorative touches are unlike anything I have ever seen before. The service is excellent and the food is out of this world. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a romantic getaway and luxurious stay. You are in for treat.

    The Chanler is a Rare Jewel - Don't Pass it Up!

    from

    Fabulous is too mild an adjetive...it is superb in every regard.We stumbled across this new European style hotel while wandering around Newport for a one-night stay at another B&B...which was also wonderful...we started with drinks...couldn't help but order the foie gras appetizer...even though we already had dinner planned elsewhere.

    We couldn't resist extending our stay to try their Spiced Pear Restaurant and enjoy the hotel more fully the following night.When we returned, we went for the chef's tasting menu -- which was out of this world - but we also couldn't resist another helping of the foie gras!

    The rooms are incredibly luxurious, the staff extremely easygoing and attentive, and even the breakfast is out of this world.This hotel is an incredible value for the level of service and refinement.We can't wait to return!

    The Best in Newport!

    from

    I've traveled far and wide, and this has to be one of the best restaurants I've ever been to! The bar on the Ocean says it all! The guest rooms are 5 star, all Oceanfront. You have to see it to believe it!

    We arrived in Boston after 12 hours of flying and some more hours in transit.

    Our friends, the Kruzels who we had met in Bonaire 3 months prior had opened their house to us to spend the night there. We rented a car at the airport and drove 1 hour to their home in Pelham NH. It was so amazing to see them and I don't know if it's harder to believe it's ONLY been 3 months since we saw them on ...

    On May 5, 1945, the President of Nazi Germany, Karl Dönitz, ordered all U-boats to cease offensive operations and return to their bases. U-853, a German submarine, was off Point Judith, Rhode Island at the time. According to the US Coast Guard, U-853 did not receive that order, or less likely, ignored it. Soon after, her torpedo blew off the stern of SS Black ...

    ... were a few remnants of Australia's Americas Cup win in 1983, which was pleasing, including an Australian milk bar, replete with hot pies and all.

    Otherwise Newport was quaint in the way of all New England towns and was similar to villages in the UK of the same vintage (Newport is celebrating its 375th birthday this year!).

    So the breakdown of New England;
