We recently debuted a blog series highlighting The Chanler’s 20 unique guest rooms. Next up on our virtual tour? The Gothic Room. A distinct departure from the previously featured Colonial Room, a sumptuous stay here promises to transport guests to the magnificence of Europe’s Medieval period. Here’s a closer look at the wonders waiting for you in the Gothic Room at The Chanler.
A Room Fit for Royalty
If you’ve ever dreamed of venturing to “the lands of ice and fire” and overnighting in a stately castle, the Gothic Room at The Chanler promises the next best thing.
Featuring an impressive stone mantle, vaulted ceilings, period-appropriate oil paintings, open-planned living space, stone-wall patterns, hand-milled woodwork, arches aplenty and luxurious fabrics in vibrant hues of deep purple, gold, and green, this opulent abode transforms guests into kings and queens. After all, when was the last time you took a dip in an in-room, enclosed double Jacuzzi tub before retiring to a dramatically draped wrought-iron canopy bed?
An Epic Experience
Sure, you could spend your entire visit to Newport ensconced in the splendor of our Gothic Room, but part of the Gothic experience we encourage involves venturing into Newport
To see the majestic countryside in the style of the Lannisters, Starks and Targaryens, plan a visit to Newport Equestrian for a scenic trail tour along Middletown’s breathtaking Second and Third Beaches. You’ll also glimpse spectacular St. George's School, a Gothic “castle” set atop a hill overlooking the waves crashing on the shores of the Atlantic. Never ridden before? No problem. Newport Equestrian horses are gentle and beginner-friendly. If your transportation tastes lean to the more modern-day, meanwhile, The Chanler’s complimentary house car service and Tokyobikes round out your options for getting around.
Later, continue your visual feast by scheduling a stop at the famed St. Mary’s Church. This Newport landmark, which was designed in the Gothic Revival Style and boasts 42 stained glass windows. It is heralded as one of New England’s most beautiful edifices. Did we happen to mention that it was also the location of Jacqueline Bouvier and John F Kennedy's fairytale ceremony in September of 1953? (It’s also where they attended Sunday Mass while vacationing when Kennedy held office. Sit in pew 10 to sit where they sat.)
You don’t have to wait for the premier of the eighth season of Game of Thrones to lose yourself in its fantastical world. Instead, book a stay in The Chanler’s authentically inspired Gothic Room for a truly regal respite from the everyday.
