What a lovely hotel! We stayed only one night, but in that short time were suitably impressed. The renovations to this old nineteenth century school have been done with great attention to detail. The charming architectural elements have been preserved, while keeping an eye on style and comfort. Our room was spacious, owing in part to the high ceilings, and very attractively decorated. The queen beds were especially comfortable. The bathroom, also fitted with high ceilings, boasted gleaming granite and a handsome single sink console. The only drawback in my mind was the lighting, and the absence of an additional mirror for shaving and makeup.
Although no breakfast is served, coffee is available in the morning, as well as tea and scones in the afternoon. For those who want a fuller breakfast, Dunlap's Restaurant is right next door. A small "pub" is about to open in the basement of the hotel, where there is also a meeting room and a fitness center, which includes three machines.
The hotel is well located between the center of town, Gettysburg College and the battlefield. The center of Gettysburg can get very noisy and cramped, so we welcomed being situated just a few blocks away, where it was quiet and where there was ample on-site parking. It's a particularly good location for families visiting the Gettysburg College campus.
Federal Pointe Inn is a new hotel, and I understand, reading some of the other reviews, that there may still be some kinks that need to be ironed out. But for us, it was a most enjoyable stay, and we would gladly return.
