“Spacious stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2011

Traveled to Nantucket for a weekend stay May 5-8. Chose White Elephant Hotel Residences because I was traveling with a girlfriend and we both like our own space. The residence we stayed in was very large, two-bedroom, two private baths - i could not hear my friend getting ready in the morning, our bedrooms were separated by a long hallway. Beds were sooo utlra-comfy. However, the living area was so spacious that it made us come out of our rooms - we were particularly fond of the Bose iPod stereo players. It made us want to entertain - too bad we don't have any friends on the island ...yet! We had beautiful weather, so were able to take advantage of the complimentary bikes that were located just down the street at the Residences check-in house - a friendly innkeeper helped us unlock and we received biking maps of the island. It's also lovely that you get picked up from the ferry (that is how we arrived), because dragging bags on cobblestone streets didn't seem like the most fun.

Room Tip: We stayed in Jetties, it was enormous

From the service to the ementities and the location, this was the perfect place for our family vacation. Just steps to children's beach and playground for the kids and a short walk to the restaurants and bars for the adults. This was a vacation my wife and our kids will remember for a long, long time. The pool was outstanding. If you have kids, you have to stop by Nantucket Boat Shop on Straight Wharf and pick something up for the kids while you are there. Also, the Whaling Museum is a must. Definitely get your wife a spa treatment at the hotel.
