Mention to anyone in Newport that you’re staying at The Chanler at Cliff Walk, and you’ll likely be met with wide eyes and a serious nod of approval. The reaction is warranted, The Chanler, an upscale boutique with incredible ocean views, is nothing short of spectacular. Everything -- from the hotel’s mansion-like appearance, to its richly decorated rooms, to its acclaimed fine dining restaurant -- is superb. However, room rates are expensive, even in the off-season, and there is no pool, spa, or fitness center. Most rooms at The Chanler can only accommodate two people, and there is no elevator, making it difficult for guests traveling with small children or those with mobility issues. Travelers looking for more space can find it at Castle Hill Inn, which offers a similar level of luxury, often for comparable prices.
