We just completed our stay at The Christopher over the Labor Day weekend and it was a memorable one. The best part of the stay was the staff. Julie and Marla could not have been more helpful or more friendly. Each day we were greeted warmly and were regularly asked how we were enjoying our stay and if they could...

The Christopher was even better than expected. We were warmly welcomed by helpful hosts and freshly baked cookies. The remodel is casual elegance. Our room included a deck with peek-a-boo water views. We enjoyed the beautiful interiors with such great touches, including Apple TV, sound system, and iPad loaded with local travel suggestions. The mornings brought home cooked breakfasts. Our...

I usually don't love staying in B&B's and/or inns, but this had much more of a hotel feel as they note on their website. We loved staying there in our king balcony room. The parking says first come first serve but we never had a single problem w/ parking and the hotel was full up the entire week. It is...

We stayed at The Christopher for 2 nights and had a lovely trip. We had a King Deluxe on the 3rd floor. It came with a private balcony, which was a nice surprise. The hotel is in a charming old building, but the decor is modern, yet comfy. The A/C worked very well, which was key because of the high...

Just spent 5 night at The Christopher and had a wonderful experience. Julie and Marla make you feel right at home from the time you arrive until you walk out the door. The newly renovated hotel has a modern comfortable feel that fits nicely with the victorian bones of the building. Breakfast each morning was so healthy, flavorful and invented....

My son and I stayed here for a couple of nights before the rest of our family arrived on the island. We stayed in a great room on the third floor with two balconies. Loved the bed and loved the breakfast. Convenient location in the middle of Edgartown near great places to eat and lots of activity. Perfect parking spot....

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Christopher. It was our first time to Martha's Vineyard and our first experience with a bed and breakfast. Our room was very modern, stylish, and clean. The transformed Victorian home was beautiful. The breakfast each morning was wonderful, with small plates of multiple tasty items from which to choose, all...

We were lucky enough to visit Edgartown at the end of June, staying at the Sydney. In my review of the Sydney, I mentioned we just might make another trip down before the end of the season. This decision to come down was made the night before due to an unexpected freeing up of my schedule, and due to my...

We had stayed at The Victorian Inn many times in years past and loved the feeling of being "back home" at the Vic every summer. We had some trepidation about staying at the completely renovated Christopher Hotel this year - but that was relieved immediately!
