The "deluxe" accommodations in the Harrison Grey House at the Jared Coffin property were sadly disappointing. We stayed in a queen deluxe room, where the wallpaper was stained and faded, the bathroom creaky and tiny, there was a noisy service area in the basement underneath our room where housekeeping and handymen kept up loud conversations all morning; all contibuted to a feeling of being led to believe something other than what we had read online. The "sumptuous breakfast", although nice, was merely some strawberries and muffins; no juice, yogurt, or cereals. (calling it a "continental breakfast" might have been more appropriate). The bath surround was cheap fiberglass, the toilet needed to be flushed many times to empty it, the door to the bathroom could not be opened completely without hitting the toilet, the sink was behind the door and next to the heating unit, and there was zero counter space. We kept our toiletries in the room on the mantel and brought them into the bath when we needed them. The bed and linens were nice, and the room was indeed spacious, but there was absolutely nothing on the walls other than the faded wallpaper and a map of Nantucket. We never ate at the restaurant although it looked nice, but the Tap Room was quite musty and dark. ("Historic"!) The location was excellent, however, for walking into town and dining or shopping. The lobby and public areas in the Jared Coffin House were quite lovely and well-kept, and the staff were friendly, but the hotel was full or we would have requested another room, perhaps in the Jared Coffin House itself. I'd save my money if you're looking for "deluxe" at the Harrison Grey House, which advertised "upgraded amenities". Next time we'll spend a little more for the White Elephant!
