“Best in Nantucket”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2011

We stayed there with 2 other couples for Christmas Stroll.

It was a great time! We were lucky to have such great weather but the Hotel Residences

were awesome. We all had our own bathroom. It was new and beautiful. Very lucky to have stayed there. 5 star and I travel the world.

Oran Mar Restaurant is the best on the Island. Also go to the Cisco Brewery Tour. A great time.

Room Tip: In Town. Close to everything! The higher floors are quiet

Christmas Stroll is such a fun time to visit Nantucket if you can get a group together. The feedback we are getting on the two and three bedrooms for adults travelling together has been really positive - glad you enjoyed it!

We just returned from an amazing weekend on Nantucket for the Christmas Stroll. We had previously stayed in the White Elephant hotel but never in the residences. Our 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite was absolutely amazing. Beautiful family room area that was very large and perfect for entertaining if you wanted to have a few friends over before dinner for drinks or appetizers. So comfortable and so clean. Our suite, Nobadeer was located very close to the gym and hospitality suite which was very convenient. The only draw back (for us at least) was the noise coming from Lola restaurant (across the street) later at night on our first night. Unfortunately it was difficult to sleep, but the next day we spoke to Jackie in the hospitality suite and she was incredibly helpful resolving the situation by offering to move us to another suite. Our second suite was nice too but Nobadeer is a spectacular unit if you don't mind a little noise later at night. The staff (Jackie, Paul, Carolyn M. at the spa) were incredibly nice, friendly and polite and very easy to talk to. I had an amazing massage at the spa as well. We would absolutely go back to the Residences again and recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: Nobadeer was a spectacular suite but keep in mind that Lola across the street gets rather rowdy from...

Once again, we are sorry that you ended up having to listen to all the guests at Lola, Christmas Stroll is definately a fun party on Nantucket! So pleased the alternative location worked out though. I have passed on your kind comments to the staff. Thanks so much for your review.

Stayed here for one night when our flight was cancelled. The front desk was very helpful getting us into the suite early. We were on a ground-floor unit with 2 master bedrooms as well as a living/dining room with full kitchen. The decor was brand new and gorgeous. There was no noise from the street nor was there any from the unit above. We had great access to the on-site pool which has cabanas that are free of charge and are great for getting a bit of privacy and shade. The in-town location was super convenient, and yet it was just a short walk to the main White Elephant hotel where we could use the dining room. Overall, for families this is great fit. The most impressive aspect was the decor and finishings in the suite, which were just gorgeous.

Stayed July 2011, travelled with family

Arriving in Nantucket just days after Labor Day we just spent 8 beautiful days at the White Elephant Residences. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed with spectacular service. The staff is polite, friendly and so helpful. We enjoyed the pool, road the bikes, relaxed on the beach with comfy chairs, enjoyed the DVD library, had cocktails looking out at the harbor, enjoyed a great Sunday breakfast, had some fun in the gift shop.... and so much more. We visited Wauwinet another beautiful property and the reception there was just as friendly... We shopped there too! The White Elephant is indeed where we will be spending our time next year in Nantucket!

We just came back from the most beautiful stay at the White Elephant Hotel Residences in Nantucket. The accomodations were spectacular, and the staff was gracious, polite and competent. My husband and I have enjoyed staying at several luxary resorts and hotels, but this was positively top notch.
I am a tough customer when it comes to hotel bedding, and I was delighted to find that the bedding at the Residences was positively luxurious, I slept beautifully. The accomodations are absolutely lovely, from the plush robes to the freshly stocked kitchen area, not a detail goes untended. The staff at the White Elephant was fantastic, they were friendly, courteous and very attentive. The pool was amazing and the location was perfect. I would highly recommend a stay at the White Elephant, (and stay as long as you can) it is heavenly!
