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

Covered parking, beautiful lobby, great bar attached at John J. Jeffries and our room on the 5th floor was awesome. King room with plenty of room, I-pod dock, local artist pieces... More

The rooms are comfortable, modern and compare with 5 star hotels in any major city. The bar and restaurant John J. Jeffries is also exceptional. Sitting at the... More

Nice boutique hotel within walking distance of downtown, Franklin & Marshall College, food and shopping. Comfortable stay, nice folks, well priced. Some of the better mixologists on the planet reside and hold court on the ground floor.

We showed up a bit early for my girlfriends birthday, and they did everything they could to get us into our room early; so that was a pleasant experience. Then we were looking for a fine dining experience and they provided a fantastic list of places to try; however, it was a guest that recommended The Stockyard Inn, 2 miles... More

Perhaps a little self-consciously arty and tries a little too hard, nevertheless we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in Lancaster Arts Hotel. A nice quiet room, well-appointed and a decent breakfast, not sure we could ask for more!. The bar is small (intimate, perhaps) but nice. There is a fine-dining restaurant here, but we ate out in the town, which... More

stayed here for an event at F&M. not quite as close as expected - certainly didn't want to walk in February. Hotel was comfortable and clean, with charm and character. hotel bar was great. right through the parking garage is a strip of businesses including places to eat. The road outside was in pretty rough shape
