Block Island's Flagship Victorian Hotel
Located in the center of downtown in Old Harbor across from the ferry landing and New England's best beaches. The National is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This Block Island landmark offers breath-taking ocean views from the iconic front porch and restaurant, the Tap and Grille—a favorite gathering spot for locals and visitors.
The hotel offers 7 unique shops with many more all within walking distance of the hotel. The shops within the hotel feature gifts, clothing, souvenirs, and a delicious gelato spot!
Located directly behind the hotel, the back yard offers two large fire pits and comfortable seating for our guests during the day or evening. Great place to have a cocktail and meet new people!
We really do have one of the best locations; directly across the street from the ferry building, you can walk to the beaches, shops, and restaurants. Bike and moped rentals available nearby for exploring!
