Top tips for finding the perfect Nantucket hotel

Most of the best hotels on Nantucket Island are located in Nantucket Town, a small, concentrated area near the Nantucket ferry dock.
There are several inns along Broad Street (the main street leading out from the wharf) and East Chestnut Street (one block to the south of Broad Street).
Two excellent hotels in Nantucket are 21 Broad, which offers spacious, traditional New England-style decor with a modern touch, and Vanessa Noel Hotel on the corner of Chestnut and Centre Street.
Travelers hoping to spend their holidays near the beach should consider the popular, upscale White Elephant Hotel, which is located beside Children’s Beach.
Harborview Nantucket, located on Washington Street about a half-mile south of the Nantucket ferry dock, is another waterfront option just steps from the beach.
Several hotels are situated near Nantucket’s Whaling Museum, including Periwinkle Inn across the street from the museum, and Greydon House, which is just around the corner.
The Quaker Meeting House is another interesting museum in the Nantucket Historic District, and 76 Main is a popular hotel on Main Street, one block north of the Meeting House.
Barnacle Inn, located one block south of the museum on Judith Chase Lane, is a cozy bed-and-breakfast hotel situated in one of Nantucket’s many historical buildings.
