I was so incredibly happy with my hotel experience at the Lancaster Arts Hotel. You must stay here if you enjoy unique one of a kind art and/or contemporary design. The service was absolutely wonderful. I was pleasantly surprised upon returning from dinner, to find that my bed had been turned down, and there was a beautiful rose placed by... More

My husband and I stayed overnight here while going to a concert in downtown Lancaster. I wasn't at all familiar with the area and didn't know what to expect, but the hotel (and area) far exceeded my expectations! Who knew that Lancaster, PA was more than just Amish?! Honestly! What a cute, little artsy town with good food and shops!!... More

The Lancaster Arts is the perfect base for visiting the Franklin and Marshall campus: 0.2 miles from campus in one direction and an easy 10-15 minute walk into the old City Center (with the Central Market---oldest continuously operating farmers market in the country) in the other direction. The rooms are beautiful with wooden floors and huge exposed beams from the... More

We were looking for something a bit different for a weekend getaway, and took a chance on the Lancaster Arts Hotel. We were very pleased. It is a boutique type of place with great service from all of the staff that we encountered. Our room was what I would call "European sized" but with high ceilings it did not feel... More

Which is what it was, now a very cool looking place, you can see the original brick and what looks like the original beams. Very, very pretty. Rooms are fine, continental breakfast is good. A good value.

I travel to Lancaster for business pretty regularly, and this hotel is just great. The rooms are comfortable, the service is good, the continental breakfast is totally solid, and their restaurant is AMAZING. I look forward to eating there every time I go. I live in New York, and this restaurant would go head to head with anything here.

This is a lovely old building that has been nicely restored. There is however a truly unattractive appearing wing over the garage (the rooms might be nice but the aesthetic from the outside isn't). Happily we were in the original building. Its a pricey hotel for the area and there were a few things missing in my opinion. The breakfast... More

Love staying here - clean, cool, great attention to detail. The staff was friendly and the included breakfast was delicious. There are so many restaurants nearby as well as art galleries and cool stores to shop.

Great aesthetic, restaurant/service was wonderful. Rooms clean and nicely appointed. We had a great server in the restaurant who steered us very well in terms of food and wine. Front desk was courteous and helpful. Breakfast was typical fare. Could have used more than one person working but she was as helpful as she could be given that she was... More

This hotel reminded me of being in a SOHO loft. Every detail of our room was remarkable ; the super high ceiling, the character of the original exposed beams and brick, the pops of color from the impressive oil paintings. The turn down service with the long stemmed rose, added a delicate touch to our already romance infused stay.
