Return visit to the The White Elephant Hotel
Reviewed 1 week ago

I love the White Elephant and I love Nantucket.

I stayed in room 221 for the nights of 3 & 4 June 2019.

The hotel is smart and cool and my room was lovely. It was very spacious with a sofa and arm chair in a nice sitting area away from the bed. I had a deck which overlooked a salt pond and was a lovely place to sit in the sunshine.

The White Elephant is very well located, close to the harbour but the hotel will pick you up from the ferry and only about 5 minutes walk from The Whaling Museum. It is also a couple of minutes away from Children's Beach.

I had breakfast as part of my package and that was delicious and ate from room service both nights. Lobster roll and Lobster Mac & Cheese were both very good and nicely served.

The staff in the hotel were all great, really helpful, and a special thank you to the lady on reception who noticed my ferry time had changed. It saved me some stress on check out day.

I can't wait to come back to the hotel and Nantucket.

Very nice hotel and staff

We just spent several days at the White Elephant. Had a great time on the island and at the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful at all hours of the day and night. The food for breakfast and lunch was great and even eating at the bar was worth it. This is a pricey hotel but you just can't beat the location or the views from the room. We would stay here again for sure.

Fabulous Service, Brilliantly Designed Property

We absolutely loved our experience at The White Elephant. We attended the Nantucket Conference which was held ,at various times, on the property. The luxury of the room was so thoughtful. The staff were intentionally friendly and gracious . The room was uber plush. They attended to every request with a response of ‘of course’.
The grounds and water views are enchanting . We will absolutely be back. Great appreciation .

Best Hotel we ever visited

The room was outstanding!
The most amenities of any place we've stayed. If we needed it, it was there.
Room service staff and food was exceptional.
Management was extremely helpful. I wrote to them before we left home, because of my husband's special needs, I was immediately contacted and all questions were answered with concern and respect.
Beautiful place, in every way
