21 Broad is a lovely property with a prime location, but all the positive aspects of this hotel are easily overshadowed by the horrendous general manager. Not only was he very rude and condescending when asked questions, but his obnoxious personality also made me want to avoid the common areas. It is abundantly clear that he loves the sound of his own voice and he carries himself with an air of superiority that is very offputting. In addition, I overheard him gossiping about a guest to his employees. Very unprofessional. Lastly, the "continental breakfast" was very limited and nothing special. Overall, this experience was not even close to being worth the price.

mid november stay on nantucket with glorious weather perfect for cycling. 21 Broad is an easy walk from the ferry up the cobbled streets of nantucket. greeted with warm hospitality of the staff at 21 Broad. The hotel is stylish. I felt right at home. 65 degree temps were conducive to enjoying the outdoor fire in the early evening. enjoyed my stay.

The hotel is modern. Breakfast is a bit disappointing. The AC system is quirky and has a warning about not touching the mode or the whole building will go kupotz. everything is all about contact less. Staffing issue maybe. I am a people person. I keep safe distance and so I find it a bit odd when COVID becomes an excuse for poor service. After paying about $700 per night, Housekeeping does not exist here. What does exist is a tip envelop in the room. Seriously a tip for what ? Every time I came down in the lobby with the family the desk agent was busy on a laptop. very sterile experience.

Although the booking site (not the hotel site) misrepresented our accommodations, the stay couldn't have been better. The location is perfect if you are arriving by ferry and are staying downtown. The outdoor deck area was as perfect for early morning coffee and breakfast as it was for an evening by the firepit. The small plate breakfast was plentiful and artfully presented. Happy hour was equally creative. You will not be disappointed.
