The Chanler at Cliff Walk, a historically preserved hotel with an AAA Four Diamond Award features distinctly decorated guestrooms in the sailing town of Newport, Rhode Island. Guests can enjoy the luxury of colonial times past, with all the conveniences of modern amenities, from flat screen televisions to relaxing Jacuzzi tubs. Historically rich Newport, RI, is known as America's first resort city and the sailing capital of the U.S. Located south of capital city Providence on the picturesque Aquidneck Island in Narragansett Bay, the prominent East Coast picture-perfect, pristine community of three beaches has been a luxury destination dating back to the late 19th century. Newport has one of the highest concentrations of colonial-style homes in the nation, as there are three National Historical Landmark districts in the city. Cliff Walk, a designated National Recreational Trail, is the area's most popular spot. It is a 3.5-mile public walkway that stretches from Bailey Beach to First Beach. The pathway runs directly behind the ostentatious grandiose mansions, built during the Gilded Age of the country's Second Industrial Revolution in the late 1800s. Newport has served its country well in modern times as well, as it was the Summer Whitehouse for Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy, respectively.
