We traveled to Lancaster, primarily to see Franklin and Marshall. The Arts Hotel is nearby and also close to downtown Lancaster - so great location. The hotel was clean, well maintained, and interesting. The bathroom had all the amenities and a great shower. Beds were comfortable. The only real challenge was the doors to the bathroom, which have large glass... More

I loved it here! Unique rooms, different than any other hotel I've ever been in! Cute bathrooms (showers were awesome). Super tiny mini fridge which didn't matter to me and no microwave in our room another thing I didn't care about. Comfy robes in each room. Tv-cable nice Samsung not a piece of crap. Gave us tickets to the Lancaster... More

Not much to add to the many positive reviews, but having seen some complaints about the breakfast I'll note that on 8/19/2015 we went down for breakfast at 9:20, and there was plenty of everything. It was a breakfast that suited us much better than most places--plain yoghurt that you could add fruit to, unsweetened oatmeal, tasty breakfast burritos. We've... More

great hotel; clean; 'artistic' in the best sense of the word; king room (second floor) was just gorgeous, esp the bathroom, which is so European in feel. turkish robes, wine cooler, etc added to overall ambience. 6:30am breakfast buffet [free] was quite extensive, and had much more than the usual 'carb heavy' breakfast bars. the restaurant is truly special!!

Coming from nyc, the hotel itself was beautifully done and reminiscent of the hipster art influenced hotels of williamsburg Brooklyn. Our room was clean and comfortable and the decor was beautiful with the exposed brick walls. The beds were excellent and super welcoming after a long day shopping through farmers markets and exploring the Amish country. Parking on site and... More

I booked this hotel based on reviews from trip advisor and I'm glad I did. I was impressed by the overall style of the hotel. My room (506) was amazing I didn't expect for it to be as nice as it was. My only complaint is that I was unable to use the jacuzzi tub because I noticed it wasn't... More

We spent one night in a king room on the 5th floor--beautiful, spacious, clean, quiet, with multiple amenities (bathrobes and slippers, makeup mirror, flat screen TV,wine glasses and corkscrew). Terrific bathroom with strong shower. Nice variety of items at the complimentary continental breakfast. We felt pampered. Walking distance to Franklin and Marshall College and to city restaurants/sights/activities. Easy (and free)... More
