We had a great weekend stay here and have nothing but great things to say about this hotel. It is run by a husband and wife team and the pay attention to every little detail. This includes a great breakfast, fresh cookies every day, beach towels, chairs and bags, etc. We would definitely stay here again and have already recommended... More

Better than a bed and breakfast. Professional staff was most helpful and nice. Morning breakfast was self serve and included several small plates with interesting goodies. Several door rooms for eating and relaxing and a very nice outdoor seating area as well. The hotel is nicely done with attention to detail. Very comfortable bed and good size rooms. We stayed...

This review is difficult for me to write because we enjoyed our stay at 21 Broad, but there were a few things that bothered us. pros: ideal location, very chic, healthy breakfast, incredible shower cons: extremely small room (like European small), poor value We paid $530 for their basic King size room. The room was just big enough for a... More

We stayed for a few days on Nantucket. 21 Broad had excellent reviews and we were not disappointed! 3 minute walk from the Steamship Authority pier, this is a boutique hotel with modern rooms, nice patio yard and an iPad for use during the stay. It comes preloaded with useful traveller info as well! Breakfast is included and is very... More

So happy to hear what an enjoyable stay you had at our Nantucket boutique hotel, and thanks for spreading the word! Because of our amazing location -- such easy walking distance from everything and right in the midst of town -- the ambient street noise in the front-facing rooms can sometimes bother light sleepers. We do have additional soundproofing measures... More

We stayed at 21 Broad with our two kids. The location is great. Right in the heart of downtown Nantucket, about a block from Main Street. Although not on the beach, very few hotels are. The beach was easy walk or bike ride. The hotel staff was very friendly and very helpful. The hotel rooms and bathrooms were definitely on... More

So happy to hear you had a great stay at our Nantucket hotel with your family! Yes, while we are not on the beach (the very few that are beachside on Nantucket are way beyond our price range!), our location is amazing, walkable to almost anything you might want to get to, including the ferry. Because of our fantastic location... More

Our first trip to Nantucket and we weren't sure whether the location would work - but the rates were a bargain over the Labor Day holiday. We only stayed one night and I would definitely come back again for a longer stay. The location is very convenient and it is easy to get to shopping and restaurants. Crisp, clean decor... More

I spent four days at 21 Broad during the Nantucket Wine Festival last month, and I will not only go back, but I will stay at other Lark hotels in the future. This centrally located Victorian has classic charm on the outside, but inside it has been modernized and gives off a vibe that's elegant and chic. Our room was... More

So happy to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at one of our Nantucket boutique hotels! And if you like 21 Broad, I know you'll find all of our Lark Hotels equally delightful, as we love to reimagine historic properties and fill them with an updated, contemporary and place-based feel for modern guests -- not to mention terrific staff...

21 Broad is a stylish and new hotel/B+B right in the heart of Nantucket town. It is an easy walk from the ferry (with luggage) and to numerous shops and restaurants; no need for a car unless you want to explore the far reaches of the island. The ever-present and tireless Korin is an amazing host and she and her... More
