I loved the staff. The hotel and rooms were extremely clean. I had a fun weekend in Nantucket and will definitely refer all my friends to the VNH. Bonus: They just opened up a sushi restaurant that is connected to the hotel! It was so delicious I basically ate there as much as I could! Make sure you check it... More

I ADORED the VNH, I was referred by a friend who stays there every summer after I told them I would be on Nantucket for a wedding. It was chic, quaint, luxurious. The rooms are small but the beds are beyond and the marble bathroom made me swoon. I noticed other reviews about the size of the rooms, and they... More

Our room was tiny and that was not mentioned on the hotel's website. It was only slightly larger than a full size bed. The shower was similarly small and there was barely enough room for one person to stand. That aside, the staff were very nice. The hotel is close to everything and very convenient to get in and out... More

First of all, you have to be fit to climb the almost vertical staircase up 2 flights. The room is called by them "cozy". It is extremely small. The bathroom is small. My husband and I hit our elbows constantly on the shelves in the shower. One person allowed at a time. You cannot use the sink and have someone... More

I recently spent a long weekend at this charming hotel…with the most comfortable bed I ever slept on! The exquisitely furnished room was spotless, the bathroom had all one could ask for and Hermes toiletries to boot! Vanessa’s staff was welcoming and accommodating. I can’t wait to go back!

I went for my husband for a two night stay and it was awful. The first room was dirty, the paint was peeling off the ceiling, the tv was broke, and there were bugs in the lighting fixture. They moved us to a second room which had the same problems. We were then moved into the Vanessa Noel from the... More

The check in process took 15 minutes because the woman behind the desk was torn between checking me in and attending to a casual personal phone call. The room was cozy and the bed was very comfortable. The location of the hotel was also very good. When it came time to check out, the front office door was locked and... More

This hotel's only good qualities are the location and the staff. The Stiletto Room had paint hanging from the ceiling with a 3 by 4 foot dark water stain. Windows with broken panes and chipped paint are everywhere. The faucet in the bathroom leaked causing water to run everywhere. This hotel is absolutely not worth the price. Keep looking.

This was easily the smallest room my wife and I have ever stayed in. There was barely enough room to turn around or open a suitcase. At $350 per night that was a serious disappointment The air conditioner in the room was ver loud, and it occasionally spit out small chunks of ice The TV was fuzzy, and not very... More
