This is the second Lark hotels property I have stayed in on Martha’s Vineyard. Before The Sydney was open I stayed a number of times @ The Christopher, sister hotel. Love the location of both hotels, in town, and the decor, ambiance, wonderful staff and managers simply cannot do

We stayed 2 nights at this over-priced boutique hotel . Our room was very tiny- 3 floors up and not in the main building. We booked on line so we had no idea what we were getting into. The young girl checking us in could not answer 2 basic questions regarding MV. Another woman

We too are disappointed that your recent stay with us was not what you were hoping for. The eight rooms found in the Captain’s House are the original rooms at the property and do have some more structural character than the 14 stylish new rooms that were added last year. We always recommend booking directly, as our guest experience team is always willing to find the best accommodations to suit guest needs. We certainly apologize if any team member at The Sydney made you feel unwelcome as that is certainly not something that should occur. We take all of your feedback to heart and would love if you would give us another try, as we’d very much like to show you just how wonderful a stay with us can be.

We had a wonderful time on a last minute holiday weekend getaway. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. The rooms were spacious and light, The location was perfect: in the heart of Edgartown off the Water and Main St. The Sydney is our new go-to inn whenever visiting

We are extremely dismayed to hear of your disappointing experience while staying with us. We completely understand your frustration in regards to the issues with the credit cards being used and we do apologize for the inconvenience and for our mishandling of the situation–the interactions you describe do not meet the level of customer service that we hold ourselves to. Many guests have raved about our signature small-plates breakfast, as well as our cold brew coffee selection, but we understand that it’s not for everyone. It’s possible that one of our larger rooms may have better suited you both and we would be thrilled if you would give us another try next season– we’d love to have the opportunity to show you just how wonderful a stay with us can be.
