White Elephant, a Nantucket Island Resorts property, has been named to Travel + Leisure’s annual “World’s Best 500 Hotels” for the 10th consecutive year. The White Elephant received a total score of 93.68 out of 100. It’s the #1 hotel in Massachusetts and is the only Nantucket hotel on the list, which appeared in the January 2015 issue.

The “World’s Best 500 Hotels” gives readers a chance to select their favorite hotels and resorts around the globe. Subscribers were asked to rate accommodations based on rooms and facilities, location, service, restaurants and food, and value.

The White Elephant’s ideal location on the harbor and steps from town, along with its family-friendly atmosphere, top notch cuisine at Brant Point Grill, and exemplary service, earns it a spot on the list year after year. Additionally, The White Elephant offers multiple event and meeting spaces, including the Harborside Lawn and the covered Sundeck.

The White Elephant will re-open for the season on April 16, 2015. Rates start at $225.
