The Chanler exceeded all expectations. We were guests twice in a ten day period. From the young and hip people at checking, to the very knowledgable free ride valets, to the really fine kitchen production, we were wowed by the high service level. We stayed in the Briar Rose and Georgian rooms - both quite different. The former had a... More

From the restaurant we were having lunch at, my husband pointed to a place on Cliff Walk, went online and found it to be The Chanler with one room available. We... More

We stayed here for a few nights during a New England tour we were doing and I am so glad we did. From the moment we got there, the customer service was impeccable and we were made to feel so welcome.

thanks to the wonderful staff of the Chanler, our wedding was a dream come true. We were treated like royalty, and yet like family, from the moment of our arrival.

The Victorian room was grand and the amenities were good. The views of the Easton Bay and the lawn were very nice. A good place to be if you want to chill out in a room. The fitness center is not in the property even though one could avail of the included transportation. The included breakfast was quite ordinary with... More

We recently stayed at the Chanler for a short visit. The hotel is what you would expect from a small boutique hotel, but inspite of the small size their service was a crawl - both in the dining room, and outside of it. Separately, the showers have VERY poor pressure. it is almost like a trickle. Rooms need updating.

We enjoyed our stay at The Chanler. We stayed in the Renaissance Room, which is lovely---on the 2nd floor--note there is NO ELEVATOR in the hotel. The entire staff was lovely, although breakfast waiters were lacking in personality....The location on the Cliff Walk is lovely and nice for taking walks. I will just say, that for the money---it is VERY... More
