Located in Newport, Chanler at Cliff Walk was once a private summer home. Each room has its own unique design and name; so all guests have a different experience. Known as one of the best hotels in Rhode Island, Chanler at Cliff Walk offers amenities such as heated bathroom floors, original oil paintings, and ocean views.

Travelers who make their way out to Little Compton will be happy to find a quiet Rhode Island Hotel, the Stone House. This historic, small hotel is located in the mansion of the man who invented the three-ring binder. With just 13 rooms, the space is charmingly old fashioned.

Built in 1722, the property was once a hunt club whose members included the Vanderbilt family.

Vacationers come to Narragansett, midway along Rhode Island’s shore, for surf-worthy waves and waters warmer than the typically bracing New England beach. For an unobstructed view of the Atlantic, stay at the Ocean Rose Inn, a nine-room Victorian villa built in 1896.

After taking a tour of the mansions on Newport's Bellevue Avenue, where you can gawk at the lavish lifestyles of turn-of-the-century industrialists, retreat to your own Gilded Age "cottage" by the sea.

There are only twenty rooms at the Chanler, built  in 1873 as a private summer home.

In 1874, mining magnate Alexander Agassiz, gentleman explorer and part-time oceanographer, had a sprawling summer house built just outside of Newport. It was an ideal setting for a man who'd made strides in the field of marine biology.

Built in 1868 on a windswept bluff with views of the Atlantic, the Victorian hotel once catered to moneyed aristocrats but was eventually torn down.

Indoor and outdoor pools make this a good choice for families.

Formerly Vanderbilt Hall.

In 1909, the Vanderbilts gave the property to the city of Newport; it's been a hotel since 1997.

The 137-year-old hotel has been in the same family since 1969. The 16 rooms are decorated with antique furniture, and some have vaulted wood-beamed ceilings and canopy beds.
