Staying on the Island

This year will be our first time hosting the meeting at The Nantucket Hotel, and we have secured a limited number of rooms for meeting participants who wish to stay onsite. The Nantucket Hotel is an incredible venue with luxury accommodations, the island's best meeting space, award-winning hospitality, and tons of kid-friendly amenities--all conveniently located in the heart of downtown Nantucket. If you are interested in reserving a room in our block, please do not wait to book as the 10 rooms will go quickly. (Be sure to mention Nantucket Retina when making your reservation: 508-310-1734.)

Because summer on Nantucket is an extremely busy time for tourists and seasonal residents, meeting registrants are encouraged to be prepared to look into other lodging options, of which there are plenty: boutique hotels, charming inns, bed and breakfasts, and rental properties, including many affordable options through Airbnb and Vrbo.
