Lovely location, hotel and rooms. But the attitude of the staff, I could not put it any better than our Boston neighbor, he hit it head on!

We visited the Charlotte Inn to go to its restaurant L'etoile, and to look around to determine if we would stay there on a future visit. The restaurant was excellent (although very pricey, which we expected) but I would not want to return as a guest. The Inn is very luxuriously decorated - almost overdecorated in that English-drawing room style, lots of thick drapes, tons of portraits of dogs and racehorses, etc, which I find overbearing and pretentious. The hotel staff (although not the restaurant staff) were all imperious and unfriendly, particularly the front of house manager (major domo?) who was outright rude. Some people must enjoy this type of haughty treatment, but we don't. I wouldn't recommend this to friends unless they knew what they were getting into - yes it's fancy but not friendly or hospitable at all. There are many better choices on the Island.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Charlotte Inn. It is so beautiful, so warm, and the most elegant place to stay in Edgartown. We can not wait to return to our little cottage off the main house. We give it 5 stars!!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Listed as one of the "Top 101 Hotels in the World" by Tatler's 2012 Travel Guide and a long-standing member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux small luxury hotel group, The Charlotte Inn is settled just a half block off Main Street and two blocks from the harbor-front in downtown Edgartown. Among 4 buildings are 17 guest rooms and 2 suites individually decorated with fine antiques in a wonderful English garden setting. The Charlotte Inn provides guests with what we consider the "ultimate luxury" - a glimpse back in time to a more peaceful and restful frame of mind. A visit to The Charlotte Inn - from an overnight or a week vacation - is an opportunity to escape from the hectic, rushed, technology and gadget driven daily routine and enjoy the simpler things life has to offer. With all that Martha's Vineyard has to enjoy as your daily playground - from beaching, boating, fishing, and sightseeing, to fine dining and shopping, to simply strolling along the historic whaling captain’s home lined streets along the harbor and down to the lighthouse, The Charlotte Inn offers our guests a relaxing home away from home to retreat to and an opportunity to cherish life's simpler times. Whether iced-tea on the porch with a good book, chatting with friends and fellow guests on a garden terrace, or enjoying a glass of wine by the fire with your companion in cooler weather, we hope that our guests embrace the opportunity to join us in the experience we work so hard to provide - a getaway from the stress and pressures of today’s fast-paced lifestyle and a chance to enjoy a peaceful reprieve in an atmosphere that is the perfect combination of elegance, luxury and comfort. Nothing satisfies us more than to provide our guests with this experience, and to watch them enjoy, unwind and cherish their time spent at The Charlotte Inn in the way that we prefer and as our adage suggests - "Behind The Times on Purpose". ... more   less
