Lark Hotels’ 21 Broad has just opened on Nantucket, bringing the hotelier’s stylish touch to the island.

Lark Hotels expands its “designer hotel meets historic property” concept with the grand opening of Nantucket’s 21 Broad, which began welcoming guests July 19.

Boasting designs by Boston’s award-winning Rachel Reider Interiors, 21 Broad is a fully renovated, 27-room hotel located within a 1876 structure and just a minute’s walk from the Steamship Authority and iconic island restaurants.

Like all Lark hotels, guestrooms and common areas at 21 Broad display a hip and stylish decor, which infuses the historic architecture with bold, yet playful designs. Interiors blend an “Urban meets Nantucket – Modern meets Broad Street” feel all the while keeping the integrity of its 1800s structure. Reider has created the designs for most of the Lark Hotels collection. Textures and colors at 21 Broad blend a “white on white” palette with pops of bold colors mixed with woods, large striking art pieces, earth toned linens and sea grass.

Guest amenities and services at 21 Broad include spa services, a guest lounge with games, turntable with vinyl collection, landscaped outdoor courtyard with fire pit, iPads and iPod docking stations with a white noise feature, 40” LED Smart TVs, in-room Keurig coffee makers and refrigerators, personalized concierge service, complimentary wireless internet, and guest discounts for online purchases at vineyard vines, the official outfitter of 21 Broad and all Lark Hotels.
