In the small world of seaside New England, Nantucket looms pretty large. The island is one of the region’s most storied destinations, and the White Elephant, by virtue of its privileged position in town on Nantucket Harbor, is one of its central attractions. It’s more or less everything you’d want from a Nantucket hotel — classic style, sunny nautical interiors, close-up sea views — and a few things you might not have counted on, including a full-service spa looking out over the harbor.

It’s the city cousin of the more secluded Wauwinet, but its in-town convenience does little to dampen its mellow country style — the décor is traditional, bright and breezy, and the atmosphere is anything but urban. Rooms range from the relatively cozy — with plenty of room for a king bed — on up to the Shoreline Suite, complete with pull-out sofa and wet bar.

There’s a beach for a bit of lounging, but the White Elephant is just as much about sailing — you’re welcome to arrive by boat, if you wish. Port and sherry are served in the afternoon, along with a cheese plate, and the restaurant serves steaks and the latest catch. It’s a Massachusetts favorite, and so quintessentially Nantucket that it would be hard to think of a better introduction to the island.

How to get there: From Airport: Nantucket Memorial‎ , 3.7 miles - approximately 12 mins. Please contact to arrange airport transfers.
