Best of Boston

2006 Best Hotel, Nantucket

Union Street Inn

Steps from Main Street, this island retreat goes to great lengths for its guests: Bathrooms brim with Fresh toiletries, Matouk robes hang in closets, a basket of umbrellas waits by the front door, and fresh-baked cookies greet visitors every afternoon. The 14-room inn is luxurious but not uptight, intimate but not cramped—qualities to which each and every B&B should aspire.

7 Union St., Nantucket, 508-228-9222,
