I seldom write negative reviews, but the most recent reviews (2014) are wildly suspect. As a former York resident I was shocked to see this hotel's current condition. It borders on embarrassing. Can't someone even afford to refinish the front door ? The excellent fine dining in the Commonwealth Room was a mainstay of this very historic hotel. It is... More

My wife and I just spent a few nights at the Yorktowne Hotel while in town visiting family. It is a wonderfully Historic Building located downtown. We were very comfortable in a large room with a Jacuzzi Tub! We had a nice view of the surrounding downtown as we were on the Eighth Floor. If you like history and Architecture... More

My family and I had a wonderful Christmas dinner here...........until we we were unknowingly overcharged a dollar amount we did not authorize. Aparently when you use a credit card they "upcharge" to assure there is money in the account. Although the money should be back in the account in less than a week, it was never authorized in the first... More

Make no mistake...this is an old downtown hotel with an amazing history. When you go here don't expect anything modern. It's stately and elegant and dated. I live in york and go here for a weekend on special occasions just to get away from cookie cutter resorts. The food is the best in the downtown. And downtown York is an... More

My wife and I visited our daughter at York College. While there we ate in the bar and had a good happy hour and some good food. The hotel is a grand old hotel that is nice. We stayed on the 8th floor, it was quiet and very comfy

I recently stayed at the Yorktowne for an ad hoc reunion with some fellow alums of the local college. When we were undergrads the downtown area of York was avoided. Now, it has gone through a revival and the hotel is at the heart of this new area filled with boutiques, restuarsnts and bards. Everything about this hotel is fantastic.... More

As a visitor to York, first riding the bike trail from Baltimore, and now visiting a son at York College, we've always stayed at the Yorktowne. Over the years the hotel seems to be in a steady decline. Worn carpet, cheap towels, and broken furnishings are the norm in the rooms. The fine dining restaurant and the parking garage are... More

Having stayed at the hotel in years past, I had high expectations for our room. Unfortunately it was gloomy dark (room 316 I think), multiple large stains on the carpet and bed spread, dirty, with tired sparse furnishings, even an old tube TV to boot. We were offered to try another room but felt that any hotel that would offer... More

I stayed at this hotel because I was a guest at a wedding there and they booked a block of rooms for guests. Every room I visited was different. We had a two room suite on the 4th floor but the bed room was behind the sitting room so there was no street noise. The view was rooftops, but that... More

2nd stay at this hotel. Room neat & clean. Hotel website not updated so we were unpleasantly surprised that parking was no longer free (parked in garage across street for $10 per day) & room service discontinued. Arrived @ 7 pm & no help with luggage up steps. Very close to York Fairgrounds for TCA York meet but will stay... More
