We stayed two nights at the Chanler and weren't disappointed! It is a beautifully decorated and maintained mansion in a prime location. Situated with an Ocean view on the Cliff Walk, the hotel served as a gorgeous hub for us to see Newport in a short stay. The option of having them drive us to town and pick us up was greatly appreciated. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

From the moment we arrived to the time we left we felt relaxed and pampered. The staff was attentive and accommodating. Amenities were wonderful, including the transportation service to and from town. The food was delicious, and the grounds and scenery were beautiful.

The property and location were amazing but I did not fell the service was. The women who greeted you at the front desk were “flat” and exhibited zero enthusiasm. For the price we paid, we expected more in terms of amenities. Overall, the staff were OK but really not top notch service to match the extortionate prices you pay to stay there. We live in Dubai and Dubai does service to a whole other level so we are quite spoiled.

I stayed this past weekend at The Chandler as I was attending a wedding in Newport. The staff and the setting could not have been better. From the front desk employees to the dining room staff to the valets to the housekeepers the service was A+ and always given with a smile. I stayed in the Martha's Vineyard Suite which has a beautiful beach and ocean view. It totally relaxed me and also served as a great place to entertain my guests before going out for dinner. I would highly recommend to anyone thinking of going to Newport to stay at The Chandler.

This place is truly horrible. Checked in to a room which cost $1,600 a night. Did not have enough luggage carrying equipment to get us to our room. I carried several of my own bags Room service shows up missing two items.

Everyone we encountered from the car valets to the front desk, to wait staff and cleaning people was fantastic! This hotel is unique, beautifully situated, beautifully maintained and incredibly staffed! We had a fantastic stay!

We would rank this hotel as one of our top hotels. Excellent location. Staff were very helpful and attentive. You can tell the owner pays attention to detail and has high standards. Very enjoyable visit. Thank you!

We were looking for nice clean accommodations with fine dining and wanted to dress for breakfast, lunch and dinner and not have to get in a car.. Other requirements were: rich linen, room service, ocean view, outdoor privacy (want to have morning coffee in my P.J.s outside), within a days drive from our home. We felt it suited all our requirements and it did!

Had a wonderful weekend getaway to Newport and stayed at the Chanler. The hotel was wonderful. The Louis XVI room is quite nice and has its own ocean-view balcony. Best thing going is the car service - no need to drive anywhere ... we never touched our car from arrival to departure. An issue we had on checkout was quickly and satisfactorily resolved. I'd certainly recommend this hotel to anyone.

A perfect stay. Couldn't ask for anything more. The room was beautiful and well equipped. The staff friendly and helpful. Enjoyed dining at Cara with Maurice and Christopher. Try a French Pear Martini - Maurice's specialty. Sat around the fire pit and had s'mores with homemade marshmallows. Everything was AMAZING!
