What we liked best: The luxury bath with double Jacuzzi, glass-enclosed shower with body jets, and heated tile floors.

What we liked least: Realizing we couldn't afford to stay more than one night.

What surprised us: A level of staffing so generous there was someone stationed at the door to greet us each time we went out and returned.

You know you're at the Chanler when . . . you need to keep reminding yourself you aren't staying at the Newport mansion of a fabulously wealthy friend.

Rates: Doubles $275-$1,195, depending on room and season; two-night minimum in summer and on holidays. The Federal was $395 in early December.

Directions: Newport is 72 miles or about 90 minutes from Boston. Take Interstate 93 south to Route 24 south (left exit). Merge onto Route 114 south and follow for 6 miles. Turn left onto Route 214/Valley Road for 2.2 miles. Turn slight right on Route 138A south/Aquidneck Avenue for 1.2 miles. Make a U turn at Cliff Avenue onto Memorial Boulevard, and The Chanler is on the right.
