Best of Boston

2024 Best Hotel, Cape Cod

Chatham Bars Inn

Even if you don’t take advantage of the $50,000 (yes, you read that right) “Best-Ever Cape Escape” travel package offered at this iconic seaside resort, you’ll still feel like a million bucks when you book a stay here. Why? Well, let us count the ways. First, there’s the gorgeous private beach with cabanas. Then there’s the luxe accommodations, which range from ocean-view rooms in the historical Main Inn to shingle-style cottages, and the foodie-friendly dining experiences. Cap it all off with a sea-salt scrub at the sumptuous on-site spa, which comes with its own Zen-like pool area, and you’ll be counting the days until you can visit again.
