The Chanler at Cliff Walk
Imbued with a visceral sense of history and gilded with architectural reminders of decades past, The Chanler at Cliff Walk is one of the most historic mansions in Newport and one of the top landmarks in Rhode Island. The story of The Chanler begins in 1870, when New York Congressman, John Winthrop Chanler started construction on the "cottage" that would one day become The Chanler at Cliff Walk. Completed in 1873 for the steep sum of $300,000, the mansion was built as a summertime retreat for Chanler and his wife Margaret Astor Ward, great granddaughter of the distinguished businessman and millionaire John Jacob Astor.

Located on the famed Newport Cliff Walk, this upscale hotel is like no other. Each room has a unique theme and many rooms have ocean views. Cara is the crown jewel of the Chanler offering fine dining in a fun, upbeat atmosphere. The Chanler offers valet parking, complimentary car service, complimentary Tokyobikes, and more.
