Noted for having the best location in Mystic, The Whaler's Inn is a charming boutique hotel situated in the heart of Downtown. The Bascule Bridge, specialty shops, historic homes, fine restaurants, and lively pubs are just steps away! In addition, the world famous Mystic Seaport Museum of America and the Sea as well as the Mystic Aquarium are just a short distance from the central location. Comprised of five buildings, the hotel offers newly renovated rooms over much of the complex, including deluxe accomodations in the Hoxie House featuring fireplaces, air-jet soaking tubs and views of the Mystic River - perfect for a romantic weekend away. The Inn also features family-friendly suites that offer bunkbeds for the kids as well as conference space for our business travelers. Centrally located 2-miles from I-95 and within walking distance of Amtrak, The Whaler's Inn is easily accessible from both Boston and New York City and is an ideal New England escape.
