Vacation in Nantucket
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We booked our trip to Nantucket in December and booked a suite at the White Elephant. We arrived at 8:30 am and were picked up by their shuttle. Upon arrival we were told that they had upgraded our room. Our room was not yet ready; however, they told us they would store our luggage and call us when our room was ready. We stayed in Cobblestone, which is in the Brant Building. We had a living room with a fireplace, dining area and kitchen set up with a refrigerator, wine refrigerator, dishwasher, sink coffee maker and espresso maker, marble bathroom with both a claw foot tub and a walk-in shower and gorgeous bedroom. Refrigerator was stocked with complimentary water, cream, coffee and expresso. Croissants, pastries, coffee and tea were available in a the morning, cookies in afternoon and cheese and crackers in late afternoon. On our last day we had a late afternoon ferry so they told us what time they would deliver our luggage to the terminal. The staff here were unbelievably courteous and helpful. We would especially like to call out Nikola for his assistance. We couldn’t recommend a better place to stay. Close to town and both Children’s and Jetties Beaches.

Beautiful Inn

Beautiful, clean, staff is very accomodating. Just over one block to all the shops in Nantucket. We went fishing, sailing, visited museums, rented scooters and went to a variety of restaurants. The food at Sea Grill was the best.

I hate giving less than 5 star reviews, especially when a property has so much potential. I gave my feedback in person and through the hotel directly, and never even heard a word back. This sums up exactly the experience you have with the WEV and their staff onsite (with some exceptions).

The hotel has a high occupancy rate (as does the entire island), so if you don't like what you get, it doesn't matter as they can easily fill your reservation with someone else who is willing to stay. This shows almost with everything about this property. The attitudes at the front desk were some of the worst I've ever experienced. Anything you would ask would be your fault or it was like asking them to move a mountain. In-room dining was the same way. You'd think paying a decent amount of money and supporting the hotel would be met with welcoming comments rather than "we're too busy right now, I don't even know if we have time to make your order"

There were highlights of great staff members who did make it an incredible experience such as their bell men and Rachel the concierge. In my opinion, no matter where the demand is, if you are paying $1500-$2000/night for a room there needs to be a high quality of service and welcoming from the staff.

My friend and I stayed at the Residence Inn. We had a two bedroom, two bath unit. It was gorgeous. The living room, dining room, kitchen area were well appointed. The decor superb. The master bath was all in marble. The service was great. The Restaurant and food was really good. Overall I would recommend the White Elephant to any experienced traveler who wants to stay in a top notch place on Nantucket.
