2021 Best Hotel, Nantucket

White Elephant

For the second year in a row, we hand over the title of best Nantucket hotel to the White Elephant, and happily so. Around since the 1920s, you could say the iconic resort knows how to do a thing or two — as proven by the white-glove service, luxurious bed linens so popular you can now buy your own, and seafood restaurant showcasing an awe-inspiring harbor view. And with accommodations ranging from garden cottages and residences to hotel rooms and downtown lofts, getting a room has never been easier.
