Critic Reviews


Formerly the Colonial Inn (built in 1911), the Vineyard Square Hotel has reinvented itself as a modern-day hotel. It overlooks Edgartown harbor and the historical waterfront district, and extensive renovations over the years have brought about fresh, airy rooms, modern technology (free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and iPod docks), and updated amenities (a salon, fitness center and popular on-site restaurant).



A large boutique hotel, centrally located in Edgartown, the Vineyard Square is in a complex that includes a salon and day spa, fitness center, art gallery and boutique. The rooms have all been redone in recent years in what you might call 'beach modern.'

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended



Off the fourth floor of this inn, which has been operating continuously since 1911, is a small covered deck that overlooks the harbor. ... Some small 'cozy double' rooms are a good value for one guest or a couple that doesn't mind the quaint space as a trade off to stay in the heart of town.
