Rhode Island's Most Romantic Hotel – A Fairytale
Step inside this 19th-century Newport, Rhode Island, mansion-turned-boutique-hotel, and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to another time period, complete with a Gilded-Age lobby decked out with gold accents, luxurious chandeliers, and modern wood flooring.
Walking through The Chanler at Cliff Walk and staying in its charming rooms, you’ll soon realize why this historic establishment has been voted 2016’s Most Romantic Hotel in America. The Chanler was originally built by New York Congressman John Winthrop Chanler in 1873 but now houses 20 elegantly themed rooms, each designed around a particular period in time, from French Provincial to Greek Revival.
These are the kind of dreamy rooms that will have you wanting to stay on a permanent vacation. Don’t miss out on dining at the on-site restaurant Spiced Pear, one of the most romantic spots in the hotel with a view of the Easton Bay. The restaurant’s famous six- or nine-course New England tasting menu is a must-have.
To imagine that Chanler built what he called his “cottage” for $30,000 is truly amazing compared to its opulent feel today. Staying at the Chanler at Cliff Walk feels as if you’re staying in a small bed and breakfast thanks to its high-class service, while in reality, you’re on a fairytale vacation in a mansion—no big deal!
