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

The hotel was clean and comfortable, with large rooms that are fully stocked with upscale bathroom amenities, coffeemaker, hairdryers, etc. The breakfast room is self-service but well stocked.

Over our four-day stay we discovered this hotel is certainly a work of art, designed to house works of art. The designers did an amazing job transforming a warehouse into a beautiful hotel. As for the art, I thought they were a dazzling treat every day. Now, I think the staff is in need of some guidance here. Housekeeping seemed... More

We've stayed here a couple of other times as well. The beds are extremely comfortable and we always sleep very well. In addition, I love the decor and the themes of creativity. I have never seen unfriendly staff, whether at the reception desk, the housekeeping staff, or the breakfast staff. Also, the room is always clean. The first time I... More

Absolutely loved this place. Everything was great from the exposed brick of the structure to the turn down service- my husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. Art is displayed throughout the building- including sketches from guests (they provide a sketch pad and pencil in your room). John J. Jeffries is downstairs- amazing local, organic fare.
