Driving through the wrought iron gates of The Chanler at Cliff Walk gives guests the impression they’re arriving at a private residence, not a hotel. Indeed, the AAA 4-Diamond property started its life as a five-acre estate of New York Congressman John Winthrop Chanler. Modern visitors are not treated as if they’re renting a room, but as the personal guests of staff, greeted with sparkling wine and a welcome gift.

Entering any of the twenty guest rooms, dripping crystal chandeliers above canopy beds with wood burning fireplaces and balconies looking out at the sea, is like stepping into a fairy tale. Accommodations are custom-designed with Georgian, Mediterranean, Gothic or Empire style furnishings and museum-quality antiques. The heat in each bathroom’s stone floor can be adjusted to taste between its multi-head shower and separate Jacuzzi tub with room for two. Villas feature a private exterior entrance with courtyard gardens, outdoor hot tub and sauna as well as decks overlooking Cliff Walk and the ocean or the lush gardens.

Fine dining at the Spiced Pear is “topnotch” with New England cuisine and an elegant bar. Room rates include breakfast served each morning at the more casual Terrace Restaurant outside. The hotel offers complimentary modern amenities including Wi-Fi, on-call shuttle service and DVDs available for guest use. For a fee, guests can book in-room spa services or hire a beach butler. Downtown Newport is just a mile away and the front desk can arrange tickets to local attractions and museums.
