The Living Room in the Macy Two Bedroom at the White Elephant Hotel Residences -- Nantucket

Today marks the reopening of the White Elephant Hotel and Residences for the season in Nantucket. The quaint, former whaling town in Massachusetts attracts numerous visitors throughout the spring and summer with its 100 miles of sandy shores and top-notch dining — with fresh seafood being the specialty, of course. For families and groups visiting Nantucket, the big, luxurious one- to three-bedroom units at the White Elephant Residences are a great choice. Unlike vacation home rentals, these units — outfitted in attractive, nautical decor — come with the perks of a hotel stay, such as daily housekeeping, a seasonal outdoor pool, and a well-equipped fitness center. There’s not much in terms of a communal feel, like you might find at an inn or smaller hotel, but that’s part of the allure for some who seek a private, secluded vibe. As to be expected, however, privacy and luxury don’t come cheap on this island. Wanna know more? Check out more photos of the hotel after the jump or read our review now>>

Where to Stay: The Vanessa Noel Hotel

Cafe V at The Vanessa Noel Hotel; Nantucket, MA

Why Now: Unlike its other cottage-y counterparts, the Vanessa Noel has minimalist chic room decor that reminds us more of the Delano in South Beach. This spot is no-kids-allowed, so if you’re looking to tote your entire fam, you’ll have to find an alternate resort. Great for couples, though, there’s also the hip, delicious Cafe V and a killer shoe store attached to satisfy any fashionista’s shopping needs.
