“Architecturally engaging”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Chose this hotel based on online reviews and was not let down! The beautiful rooms are not only comfortable and well maintained, but feature the architectural details of the original structure. The room we stayed in had beautiful beams and original hardwood floors. This location also was in perfect walking distance of the gallery district, central market, and the F&M campus. I would stay here again!

I travel alot with business and am a Hilton Honor member but whenever I am in Lancaster I stay at the Arts Hotel. Never disappointed with the service and the rooms don't make you feel like you are in a hotel but on vacation.

Room Tip: Higer up the better if you need to sleep in late.

Nice hotel, but expensive and unless you are REALLY INTO art, it is not that unique. There are interesting art pieces everywhere, but I would save the money, get a reg hotel and visit a museum. Nothing touristy is within walking distance. If you are on vacation, skip it. If you are here for business, it would be a solid place to stay. Good facilities.

The hotel is an old tobacco warehouse which is tastefully coverted with really good artwork all over. The rooms are great; some lovely touches like doodle pads and a single rose on the bed. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was small but nicely finished. The staff were very friendly. The rooms are not completely soundproofed but it didn't bother me. A good breakfast and free parking was included. The rates were very reasonable too. The whole ambience was fantastic and I would definitely return.

Overall, we had a fantastic stay. I enjoyed staying at such a unique hotel (the artwork was unbelievable) and the service was fantastic (rose and chocolate on the bed were a nice touch). My only complaint, and it is a big complaint, is that you can hear every footstep and noise above and around you. If you are a light sleeper, I would think twice about staying here. Otherwise you should definitely stay here - continental breakfast was good, free parking was nice, restaurants in walking distance was appreciated, etc.

We had a girls night at the hotel. When we arrived the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had never been there before and we were given information on how to get to the outlets. When we arrived we were given a cute gift. In our room we had a bottle of wine and a cheese tray. The beds were turned down and we had chocolates and a rose on our bed. In the morning we had a free breakfast. The only thing I wish there would have been was fresh fruit. The juice and coffee tasted good. The art work was original and it was nice to see that the old building was renovated and the brick walls were the originals. I would recommend it for anyone.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights this past weekend as a weekend getaway to celebrate our fourth anniversary. Another great stay! We had a "king deluxe" on the 4th floor which was spacious and clean. The room was beautiful, the staff was friendly and I have no complaints at all. We had a fabulous weekend and I can't wait to come back!

As other reviewers have said, the walls are a little thin so there is a bit of a noise factor. Overall, though, it does not detract from the whole experience. If you want total quiet, stay in one of the hundreds of motels/hotels/inns out in the country side....not in a trendy hotel in the middle of a city.
