    The Nantucket Hotel & Resort
    Nantucket, MA
    #1 in Best Hotels in Nantucket
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 978 reviewsTripAdvisor (978)
    Free Parking
    If you're looking for a family-friendly getaway in Nantucket, consider The Nantucket Hotel & Resort. Recent visitors raved about the amount of kid-friendly amenities offered by the property, as well as the warm, welcoming staff. In addition to supervised day and evening programs for children, the hotel also provides bicycle rentals, two outdoor heated pools (one that's solely reserved for adults) and family portrait sessions from a local photographer (some activities and amenities cost extra). Lodgers reported that the on-site Breeze Restaurant was also kid-appropriate, with a separate menu just for picky eaters. If you'd rather dine off the resort, you'll find a variety of options within walking distance thanks to the hotel's central location in downtown Nantucket, just a half-mile west of Brant Point Lighthouse. The property is also within walking distance of the ferry docks and is less than a mile from Jetties Beach (the hotel offers complimentary NRTA Wave shuttle tickets to the beach). Rooms are equally family-oriented, with some suites accommodating up to 15 guests. Accommodations are equipped with Frette linens, iHome radios, coffee makers, TVs with DVD players and beach towels and chairs. What's more, resort guests are granted access to the Nantucket Club (located on-site), which houses a gym and spa and offers yoga and fitness classes.

    The White Elephant Nantucket Island
    Nantucket, MA
    #2 in Best Hotels in Nantucket
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 495 reviewsTripAdvisor (495)
    Free Parking
    The White Elephant has been a favorite of Nantucket's bluebloods since the 1920s. Exactly how ritzy is it? Well, visitors are welcome to dock their yachts out front, and the Brant Point Grill is considered a see-and-be-seen spot. But this local favorite is convenient for tourists too; it's half a mile from downtown Nantucket and an ideal hub for travelers visiting without a car. Guests rave about the first-rate service. And the rooms, suites and small cottages, complete with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and outdoor patios or balconies, receive high praise from families and other large parties. The White Elephant is a seasonal property, open from mid-April to October and for limited dates in November and early December.

    The Veranda House Hotel Collection
    Nantucket, MA
    #5 in Best Hotels in Nantucket
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 639 reviewsTripAdvisor (639)
    Free WiFi

    Composed of three distinct properties – the Arbor Cottage, the Veranda House and the Chapman House – The Veranda House Hotel Collection is a boutique bed-and-breakfast in Nantucket, Massachusetts. Guests seeking spacious, cottage-style rooms with traditional beach decor should book a room in the Arbor Cottage; those wanting a more modern stay with all the charms of a B&B should book a room in the Chapman House; and those looking for a "historically modern" mix of amenities and decor should reserve a room in the 17th-century Veranda House. All of the accommodations include Frette bathrobes, flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi access, and all rates cover daily breakfast and afternoon cookies. Some upgraded rooms and suites also boast private terraces or balconies, as well as additional square footage. Overall, previous visitors loved the hotel's breakfasts, outdoor gardens and central location steps from downtown's restaurants, shops and beaches. But remember, this property only permits guests ages 10 and older.

    Jared Coffin House
    Nantucket, MA
    #6 in Best Hotels in Nantucket
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 272 reviewsTripAdvisor (272)
    Free WiFi

    "Charming," "lovely" and "cozy" are words often used by recent guests to describe the Jared Coffin House. Situated near The Steamship Authority Nantucket Terminal, this inn exudes the refined style and historical significance often associated with the island on which it resides. Accommodations are dressed in elegant period decor and come equipped with modern comforts like complimentary Wi-Fi access and flat-screen TVs. Guests laud the rooms for their style and comfort, but some strongly suggest upgrading to a suite, as standard rooms felt too small for some reviewers. In addition to complimentary Wi-Fi access, the Jared Coffin House offers complimentary parking, morning coffee and pastries, and afternoon snacks. Guests can also get beach chairs, towels and umbrellas for free, and the hotel provides kids with coloring kits and activity books. Travelers appreciated the short transit time to downtown Nantucket and the shore (both just a few blocks east of the hotel) as well as the staff's pleasant demeanor. There is only one restaurant at the Jared Coffin House (Nantucket Prime serves steaks and seafood), but that didn't seem to bother lodgers much. When the weather is right, guests say dining al fresco on the restaurant's patio is a must.

    The Nantucket Inn sits adjacent to Nantucket Memorial Airport and about 3 miles from downtown Nantucket, Massachusetts. What’s more, the inn’s complimentary shuttle service allows guests to get around the island with relative ease. Back at this quaint, shingle-style hotel offers, travelers can start their day with a complimentary breakfast, called “Mom’s Breakfast,” before exploring the grounds. The property wows recent guests and is home to tennis courts, an outdoor pool and garden. Inside, guests will find a heated pool, a library lounge, laundry facilities and bike rentals, plus 100 guest rooms. All accommodations include complimentary Wi-Fi access, a flat-screen TV, a renovated bathroom, a minifridge and a sitting area. Past guests praise the shuttle service, which is reliable and convenient, but some of them note that the price of staying at the inn felt a bit high for the value.

    The Wauwinet
    Nantucket, MA
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 268 reviewsTripAdvisor (268)
    Free Parking
    Popular with honeymooners, The Wauwinet sits in a quieter northern corner of Nantucket island, less than 2 miles from the Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge. Here, you can stretch out your sea legs on one of two private beaches or sample the local seafood at the ever-popular TOPPER's restaurant. The attentive service staff deserves a mention as well: Everyone, from the reservations assistants to the cleaning staff, receives high praise from guests. The concierge even makes pre-vacation planning phone calls. The luxurious rooms and cottages, outfitted in soothing yellow tones with wooden furnishings, free Wi-Fi access and 400-thread-count Pratesi linens, leave guests vying for more time at this romantic retreat. Also included in your room rate: coffee and pastries in the morning and evening port and cheese. Because The Wauwinet is a member of the Relais & Châteaux family, Club 5C members can earn or redeem points here for additional benefits. Keep in mind: The Wauwinet is a seasonal property, open from late April to the end of October.
