Best of Boston

2016 Best Hotel, Martha's Vineyard

Harbor View Hotel

After dropping off your bags in one of this waterfront hotel’s plush rooms or suites, each decked out in teals and taupes, order a cocktail at the in-house bar Henry’s (the Thyme After Thyme is finished with local sea salt) and take it out to the wraparound porch. Sip and savor sweeping views of Chappaquiddick and Edgartown lighthouse. Repeat. You are now officially on vacation.

131 N. Water St., Edgartown, 508-627-7000,
