Historic hotel in the heart of York. You can tell there is love and passion in the operation of this grand old hotel when you talk to the employees. The costs to keep something like this just neat and clean, not posh and plush, are surely astronomical. Hardwoods, granite, marble, brass, tiling, and oversize rooms. It is not modern, it... More

The hotel was very nice, the wedding revenue was beautiful. The food served(filet & chilien seabass) were done to perfection. the staff was very helpful. We stayed in a handicapped room & other family members remarked how much bigger, roomier & better decorated it was. I did not find the accomadations for wheelchair persons all that accessible...they did have a... More

This is grand historic hotel. The public spaces are in great shape and reflect the elegance and grace of an age gone by. I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It has a wonderful ambiance. The rooms in the back-half of the hotel seem to have been added later than the rooms located in the front-half of the hotel.... More

Although this hotel was very dated it had all things that were needed. The toilet and shower room was separate from the sinks. We were there for a wedding and the George Washington room was absolutely beautiful. There is also a restaurant that we had breakfast at that was great as well.

You can stay in a chain hotel and get the same experience in every city. Or you can stay at this iconic hotel for a truly unique experience. Wifi signal was strong in my room, bathroom was spacious and clean. Views were great and staff was extremely friendly. There is a certain nostalgia about this place. It's worth a stay.

I have no idea how it gets a 3 star rating, the staff if awkward and basically useless. Their only fame is they are in downtown. The front desk man could hardly talk. 8 people in line one less than capable person to serve. Save your money and stay somewhere else

We enjoyed very much our stay at The Yorktowne Hotel in York , PA. The facility is very attractive and welcoming. A taste of elegance from yester-year. The staff are very helpful and professional. It's downtown location is within easy walking distance on many interesting historical and shopping and night-life venues

For sure it's not new and shiny but it was a nice place to stay. The staff was great and very helpful. We had dinner and breakfast in the hotel's restaurant and both the prices and quality were very good. I would without a doubt stay there again.

If you are interested in a nostalgic trip to the 50's and 60's then this hotel if for you. We stayed in a very nice sized room that in my opinion was unchanged from 60 years ago other than the flat screen TV. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. It did seem a little strange that we only saw... More

We booked into the Yorktowne knowing it was a historic building and wouldn't be shiny, sterile, and "fast-food" fresh because we like to know we've actually gone somewhere else when we travel. The Yorktowne was amazing! Yes, it's old, but instead of just one room with two beds crammed in, for $100, we had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a sitting... More
