In today's new release of Curbed's Hotel 18 map, we're once again tackling the question, "Where should I stay on the Cape and Islands?

In today's new release of Curbed's Hotel 18 map, we're once again tackling the question, "Where should I stay on the Cape and Islands?" While our first edition of this map included 38 choices, we've carefully edited the latest version down to 18. In this smaller, leaner selection, we've made some tough choices to bring you the best of the best, and only those hotels considered most essential via reader and expert recommendations. From Sandwich to Wauwinet, this eclectic assortment covers low-key to luxury accommodations across Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.

We'll be updating the map again in due time, so if you have a favorite that wasn't included, please mention it in the comments or tip us for next time. If you spot a hotel unworthy of the Hotel 18 distinction, we want to hear about that, too.
