Room Request! The Nantucket Hotel & Resort

by Natasha Wolff | July 30, 2015 10:03 am

Just a few blocks walk from The Nantucket Hotel & Resort[1]—where guests can enjoy well appointed rooms, gourmet dining and expert spa treatments—sits the oldest house on Nantucket, an 1686 charmer built as a wedding present for one of the island’s most prominent couples. And while Nantucket[2]’s only year-round hotel certainly offers more in the way of modern comfort than that historic house—especially considering a recently constructed set of poolside suites—it seems just at home on the celebrated Massachusetts island, which plays host to bold-face names and generations of locals alike. Here, General Manager Jamie Holmes gives us the scoop on which of the charming hotel’s rooms is most in demand.

Your personal favorite:
The Spinnaker Suite 

This one bedroom suite has a wonderful floor plan with the architectural detail of the turret built in to the room and a day bed built into the window seating.  The quaint window seating overlooks Easton Street and Nantucket Harbor. The suite has both a glassed-in shower and luxurious bath along with three separate closets, a full kitchenette and pull-down kids’ bed making it ideal for families or groups.

Fun fact:
We are the last Grand Dame hotelfrom the turn of the century left on Nantucket and the only year-round hotel on the island to stay open through the winter. Parked out front the hotel is a vintage 1934 Ford bus, which the owner Mark Snider has refurbished to its former glory, it shuttles guests to and from local beaches and pick ups from the ferry.
