My wife and I stayed at the White Elephant on Easton St and were very disappointed from the get-go. After having the opportunity to be able to compare hotels while staying another location, there was really no comparison with service along with room quality. The Junior Islander room we stayed in was very outdated and was expecting something at least comparable to the other place we stayed where there was consistency from the common areas to the rooms. As for the service, I will say the front desk was not hospitable but the waitstaff was nice.

All in all, I would look down the street on Easton, as there certainly is a Gem where we had a very memorable stay.

This is a truly excellent hotel. Staff was very helpful and perfectly executed a few surprise requests for my girlfriends 30th birthday. I’ve heard great things about this hotel from friends and it exceeded expectations. They always had cars available for us (brand new bmw 7 series and x5) or vans. Location is a short walk to downtown and right on the harbor.

White Elephant is everything you would want in a top resort & more. We got married here 11 years ago and always love coming back! Service is top notch, rooms are very comfortable, and amenities are superb.

Love the extra amenities and no resort fee...AM coffee and pastries, afternoon port & cheese, shuttle service to & from the ferry, car service to town, choice of newspapers in the library, etc. They also have special touches that we appreciated...nightlights in the bathrooms, weather update cards each evening, extra bathroom amenities like Woolite and exfoliating mitt.

Service is always friendly and welcoming. Tiffany at the front desk started us off on the right foot at check in...very informative and welcomed us back, Brian in the bar was wonderful, making me a special concoction after eating some too spicy food, and all the shuttle drivers were so helpful! Staff always make you feel welcome and at home.

Close to town, yet far enough away to be quiet and secluded plus all the benefits of a full service hotel.
