Welcome to a charming, historic mansion in Newport; The Chanler at Cliff Walk ushers you into the golden age of America, where the Great Gatsby would feel right at home.

The Chanler at Cliff Walk is an elegant, effortlessly gracious luxury hotel located on Memorial Boulevard. The perfect starting point from which to venture out on Newport's famous Cliff Walk, the hotel is surrounded by other historic mansions you'll want to visit, but there's no need to rush... instead, plan your days around golf, tennis, wine-tasting, and more. Or, simply laze around your room and feast your eyes upon panoramic views of the bay from your private patio or deck.

With only 20 period-correct accommodations to choose from in descriptive categories - Manor Rooms, Estate Rooms, Ocean Villas, Garden Villas, and Signature Rooms - it's impossible to choose poorly. Although the room service is fabulous, guests will want to visit the Spiced Pear, one of the area's most acclaimed restaurants.

The Chanler at Cliff Walk is the kind of cozy, exquisite place that makes you long for the good old days - and then realize that they're here whenever you need them.


Federal takes its décor from the patriotic period in american history after the revolutionary war, when europe was under the rule of napoleon, and the influence of the french empire style is also evident. Characteristic of this period was the use of medallions, eagle motifs, the napoleonic bee and strong reds, blues and golds. The room has a queen-sized iron bed with swagged full canopy in rich blue and red striped damask. The fireplace, with its federal-styled pictorial tile reflects colonial tradespeople and is flanked with niches of ornately carved plaster shells. The oversized private marble bath includes a beautiful commode and built-in sink, double jacuzzi, full separate shower and private toilet area. Sharing a private hallway entrance from the rest of the mansion, federal can be sold as a two-bedroom suite along with williamsburg.


Colonial features an exterior entrance on the first floor of the hotel, and provides a semiprivate deck overlooking the atlantic ocean and the chanler’s lush lawns and gardens. The room's personality is characteristic of the styles prevalent in the thirteen original british colonies. It features a magnificent four-poster, queen-sized iron canopy bed, a four-foot barrier-free shower with multiple showerheads and body jets, antique wide planked pine floors, and beautiful colonial chandeliers of bronze and tin. The room's antique fireplace with ornamental mantel and over-mantel features hand-painted tiles from the 18th century. Room is also handicap accessible.

Greek revival

Located at the top of the stairs on the second floor is the greek revival, featuring rich clay, gold and ochre colors.

The victorian room features a queen-sized antique victorian bed, oversized bathroom with an antique stained glass centerpiece, pedestal sink, separate large shower and double jacuzzi, from which the expansive front lawn and gardens can be viewed through a large double window. The room reflects a 19th century style of furniture during the reign of queen victoria of england, with a co-mingling of patterns adorning the upholstery, walls, floor and ceiling. The room boasts a small sitting area complete with antique furnishings, some from the old "cliff walk manor" hotel, including two antique victorian couches, chair and marble topped tables. The room has three antique victorian-beaded chandeliers. Colors are soft tones of pink, beige and gold with ebony stained woodwork. Windows are adorned with rich brocade, tasseled valences, and overlook the mansion’s front lawns and gardens on one side and the cliff lawn and atlantic ocean on the other.


Williamsburg’s style stems from post-revolutionary america. Its décor is reminiscent of that of the grander homes in virginia, like washington's mount vernon. Furnishings include a chinese chippendale queen four-poster bed with bed hangings in a colonial williamsburg floral print of red, white and blue. The beautiful blue porcelain-tiled bath includes a queen anne vanity and seven-foot shower with multiple showerheads and body sprays.

A Gothic-arched, king-sized wrought iron bed with sheer canopy is the centerpiece of the room, along with an in-room, enclosed double Jacuzzi tub. A step-down private bath includes a large skylight.


A green-medallioned marble foyer leads guests into the georgian room, which offers a lighter look that was prevalent in the late 18th century - the "golden age" of english furniture. This period encompassed the styles of william kent, robert adams, thomas chippendale and others, and includes the ball and claw foot, which was popular in newport. The georgian offers spectacular views of the atlantic ocean from three large bay windows. The "california" king-sized, low-poster bed is appointed with a half tester with bed hangings in a yellow and sage georgian, floral, damask print. Two damask-covered wing chairs in the bayed sitting area are set in front of the beautiful georgian-inspired fireplace, highlighted by a bolection molding, gilded mirrors and hand-painted armoire with classical motif. An inspired crystal chandelier hangs over the bed, while brass and crystal hurricane lamps adorn the mantle.

Louis xvi

This signature room features neoclassical lines from the french perspective. Louis xvi’s furniture style is a total juxtaposition from louis xv’s, with exaggerated curves and c-scrolls returning to straight lines, often reeded, as in the english regency period. Other notable differences include the use of lighter and more feminine colors - pale blues and creams - while remaining ornate with much gilding. This large room features hand-painted leaf and ribbon designs copied from a chateau in normandy, and stunning crystal chandeliers.

Renaissance Room

The room has a spectacular marbled bath complete with sunken tub surrounded by columns and featuring a screen that depicts a scene from ancient Rome. Trims of gold on the double vanity, an oversized walk-in shower and a light makeup vanity complete the luxurious bathroom. The bedroom, surrounded by tall windows overlooking the room’s rooftop deck and Atlantic Ocean, has decidedly French details, with ornately paneled walls as well as a carved ceiling treatment.
