The Castle Hill Inn, if you can get a room. Most Newport hotels have 2 or 3 night minimums on weekends from now through Columbus Day.

I have the same question as the OP. Reviews seem more consistently good for Chanler Hill; I see comments that Castle Hill has some issues with shabbiness. But the photos of their Beach Cottages look awfully enticing...could anyone elaborate on the choice between these two properties?

I have never stayed in the chandler but have stayed in castle hill. I try to get to Newport twice a year and for me, the castle hill inn has the most beautiful grounds and is close to all. Beach houses are terrific. Restaurant is excellent as well. Don't miss tea time in the afternoon for good brews and snacks. Breakfasts are included. You can't go wrong.

I've never stayed at Castle Hill but I love the restaurant and summer drinks on the lawn is one of my favorite activities.

We've stayed both places. They are both really lovely. It's very hard to decide. Tea at Castle Hill was lovely but the bar at the Chanler is also very nice.

They are both just wonderful. Go twice!
