I stayed one night here recently and thought it was a truly unique property. The room was indredibly spacious with high ceilings, carefully appointed lighting, very comfortable beds and a well appointed bathroom with complimentary products. The one drawback was the noise factor. I had read reviews that it could be noisy and it was. Not that the guests were... More

I cannot say enough about this outstanding establishment. My husband and I chose the Lancaster Arts Hotel as an anniversary getaway. What a find and what a beautiful establishment.

We have stayed here several times as our son goes to college atom Lancaster. Excellent service, lovely rooms, interesting art- not a cookie cutter hotel. And the food at John Jeffries located in the hotel is first rate. The place to stay in an otherwise drab little town

I absolutely loved this hotel! It is super cute and the bar downstairs makes great drinks :) I had such a relaxing night and slept so well. The only thing that was disappointing was the fact that they had a ton of television channels but nothing was on and they didn't have the option to rent a movie and charge... More

I've stayed a number of times at the "Arts" and have always been very happy with my stay. Constructed out of an old warehouse, it has retained some of the old architectural elements including exposed brick in rooms, wooden beams and high ceilings. Rooms are large, with warm lighting, comfy beds, flat screens and modern bathrooms. Where most hotels feel... More

There's nothing to NOT like about this hotel. Artists decorated, there was original art pieces all around the hotel (former tobacco warehouse). The entire hotel was well-designed. The rooms were large, comfortable and peaceful. I always love exposed brick in a hotel or home, this place had plenty. There's too much to say about this place and you need to... More
