The Chanler in Newport, the only hotel located on the city's fabled Cliff Walk, was voted the number one United States Small Hotel by readers of Conde Nast Traveler. The 23d annual "Readers' Choice Awards" honor the world's best hotels and resorts, chosen by subscribers and readers of the magazine.

For the second straight year, the Chanler, a member of Preferred Boutique, was included in the small-hotel category, and this year was also rated number 54 in the top 100 properties in the world, jumping two points over last year, putting it on a ranking par with properties like Auberge Du Soleil in Napa Valley, Burj Al Arab in Dubai, and the Ritz-Carlton in Beijing.

The Chanler was the first mansion built on Cliff Walk, completed in 1873, and over the years has hosted the likes of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Theodore Roosevelt. It is open year round, with winter rates starting at $309. For information, visit www.thechanler.com.
