Block Island’s premiere waterfront hotel! The National Hotel is listed on the Register of Historic Places; the rooms all have private baths and televisions, and are decorated within the Victorian style of the hotel. Located in the heart of the Old Harbor, the National is walking distance to the ferries, shops, restaurants and beaches. It is the perfect location for enjoying all that the island has to offer. The hotel restaurant, the Tap & Grille, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily on its expansive deck overlooking the harbor. It is a great place to see the world go by. The restaurant also offers a beautiful outside bar and a lively inside bar, especially during sports events and on weekends with local musicians performing. One of the newest attractions for the National is the backyard which offers two fire pits and plenty of seating. This “hotspot” is perfect for evenings with cocktails and appetizers served nightly. Or you can enjoy your own s’more by the fires! The National staff is here to help you enjoy an escape to the island.
