    Free WiFi

    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 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.

    Since 1914, the Chatham Bars Inn has been a cozy oceanfront retreat that beckons to Cape Cod visitors with its laid-back luxury. Although it isn't a classic New England bed-and-breakfast, the inn still gets rave reviews from recent visitors who described the staff as very pleasant and accommodating. The decor follows the Cape Cod norm, with beige and blue sea motifs. The nautical color palette extends to the hotel's guest rooms and cottages, which guests adore for their seaside views and massive wraparound porches. Accommodations are equipped with Bose Wave radios, L'Occitane toiletries and Nespresso coffee makers.The only complaint, according to a vocal minority, is that standard guest rooms are a bit cramped for the price point. That said, the delectable New England-inspired fare served at the on-location dining venues STARS, The Sacred Cod, The Beach House and The Veranda, earns rave reviews and added to the list of reasons to return. What's more, Leaders Club members get perks like room upgrades and complimentary breakfast at this hotel.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3663 reviewsTripAdvisor (3663)
    Free WiFi

    If you're willing to splurge, then The Lenox Hotel should be at the top of your lodging list. This extravagant hotel sits within walking distance of the high-end boutiques of Newbury Street. Beloved cultural attractions like the Museum of Fine Arts and Boston Common are also nearby. Recent guests say that the hotel's convenient location is one of its best features, although the elegant decor and friendly customer service also earn high praise. The only downside, according to some travelers, is the pricey fee for on-site parking. After a long day of exploration, unwind at City Table, the hotel's intimate dining venue, or at Sólás, the hotel's authentic Irish pub. Then retreat to your stylish accommodations, which boast high ceilings and plush linens (not to mention working fireplaces and stunning views overlooking the Charles River, in some rooms).
