  • Outstanding 4th of July

    by LHTIII on 2019-07-14 12:19 am

    Back at The Harbor View for a third year to celebrate the 4th of July. New ownership, management and renovations are a huge improvement. After a room mix-up at when checking in was professionally solved by Sebastian Caldwell, the Front Desk Director, our visit couldn't have gone better. The new GM Chris Bird seemed to be everywhere and made our guest experience outstanding. And the 4th of July Banquet, dancing and guest amenities on the porch made for a memorable day. Bravo, Harbor View. Your back and better than ever!

  • Dining

    Had dinner on the porch at the Harborview Hotel, and the food was absolutely horrible and over-priced. I live in Edgartown and was so horribly disappointed by this restaurant. They should be embarrassed.

    A gorgeous luxury hotel in perhaps the most scenic location in all of MV. The hotel has recently reopened after a total renovation which preserved the historic character in every detail. The staff was super attentive to every need, anticipated and unanticipated. And the restaurants are both terrific with great menus and a nice vibe. The best part of our stay was just hanging out in the rockers on the porch for morning coffee - watching the harbor activity. Would definitely return here again and again.

    Thank you for choosing the Harbor View Hotel and the review of your recent stay. We are happy to hear what a lovely time you had! We believe our veranda is the best place to watch the sunrise and are glad to know we share the same notion with guests! We look forward to your next stay.

  • Absouletly beautiful hotel and service!!

    by patenriquez on 2019-06-30 05:13 pm

    I am a travel agent and my husband and I spent three wonderful nights at the Harbor View hotel and we LOVED everything about it.

    The hotel is under new ownership and they are doing a terrific job.

    It is in a wonderful location walking distance to town and the beach with a beautiful Harbor view.

    We loved sitting on the rocking chairs on the fabulous porch that goes on forever and having a drink while enjoying that wonderful view.

    The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. The two restaurants and the two bars were also incredible with great food and drink and incredible service.

    Hats off to Chef Patrice for his delicious dishes. BTW- When in the bar or restaurant you must order a Roxanna or a Bettini. Two great drinks named after the new owners children.

    The 1, 2 and 3 bedroom cottages are wonderful for families and have kitchens and living room areas and porches.

    The service at the hotel is wonderful with the manager Chris and also Liz on top of everything. The people at the front desk were very pleasant and made us feel very welcomed upon arrival.

    If you are going to Martha's Vineyard there is no other place to stay.

  • Very Lovely experience

    by eastendmermaid on 2019-06-21 11:12 am

    My husband and I stayed here for 3 very lovely days after heavily researching all other hotels and bed and breakfasts.
    We know now we made the right choice. The renovation is beautiful and the staff is so kind and helpful.
    We stayed in the Captain Bradley cottage and our room had a very spacious balcony over looking the pool area and we could almost see the water through the tree in front. The room felt large and had a walk in closet. The bathroom a little tight, but renovated nicely. Plush towels, nice robes and great toiletries provided.
    We didn't have neighbors until our last night and unfortunately with the historic nature of the housing, could hear them laughing and talking until close to midnight.
    We used the bikes available on more than one occasion, and loved the Mercedes drive program.
    We also ate breakfast at the hotel everyday and it was really good. They have spa water in the hotel lobby daily and give you water bottles in your room to fill up.
    The view from the porch is stunning and is far enough away from the heart of town that it's tranquil-- yet an easy walk or quick bike ride to get to most restaurants and shops.
    Only reasons I'm not giving them 5 stars are this:
    -the hotel is still under some serious construction (not the main hotel, but the pool bar and right section of the hotel). Hammering and sawing woke us up every day at 7am.... and continued throughput the day-- including the one day we had nice weather and decided to sit by the pool. Not sure if the noise experience would be the same in the main hotel building, but from our cottage it was quite loud.
    -we wanted to take one of the cars out (the only one remaining at that time) and the receptionist told us that the owners daughter needed it so we wouldn't be able to use it.
    -the pool is salt water-- but isn't heated... or at least not turned up warm enough. We were cold being in there on a 70 degree day.

    That being said-- we will return to the vineyard and we will likely book the harbor view hotel again! It feels like they're still perfecting the details as they get the hotel fully open.
    We think we stayed at the best hotel and felt a lot of value in the price with all the extra amenities.

    Dear Valued Guest,

    Thank you for choosing Harbor View Hotel and taking the time to review your stay. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your accommodations in the Captain Bradley Cottage, the kindness of our associates, and enhanced amenities. We would like to apologize for the construction noise at the pool bar, while the project is nearly complete the work should not be starting until after 9am and we have addressed this. The Mercedes Benz fleet of vehicles is a new program this year and it's our policy to not accept reservations for the cars which are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. We have reviewed this policy with the front office team and appreciate you letting us know. It's an honor to hear you regard us as the best hotel and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

    Sincerely,
    Chris Bird
    General Manager
