Please be wary of block booking this hotel for a party although I understand the pandemic has affected service industries the management was argumentative, it took an hours conversation before management indicated they would try to accommodate earlier check in for the individuals attending a wedding. Imagine my dismay when I turned to watch my daughters walking with her father to the pulpit and I saw 25 of my husband’s closest relatives standing watching from afar because as I learned later the front desk could not handle the volume of people checking in. They missed the shuttle. I give a shout out to Executive coach who k ew something was amiss and returned for a second pick up. That’s customer service. To further compound how confused the staff was the groomsman got upgraded to the penthouse but the bride and groom did not. They got upgraded to the presidential suite. Too bad I wou,d not use this hotel again. Should I mention names.

I booked this hotel last august for our trip in October. Check in was 3pm and we arrived at 2:30pm. The lobby was a mad house with loud young people and children crowding around the desk. There was a welcome sign indicating that a wedding party was in attendance today. The woman ahead of me was assigned a room with two beds. When I reached the desk Jordan asked for my information and I gave this to her. I had a printed confirmation which stated the room type as Deluxe Double Queen. The description went on to read “spacious room with two Queen sized beds, chair with ottoman, work space with table lamp and ergonomic chair, hair dryer, etc etc. when I asked jordan if we had a room with two beds she replied “there are two queens in the room”. The way she said it made me suspicious so I asked again “are there two BEDS in the room?” She said “yes, a queen bed and a pull out queen”. I asked “a pull out couch?” And her reply was yes. I told her that we had not booked or paid for a room with one bed snd a pull out. I read her the description in the printed confirmation (which didn’t even mention a couch). She just kept repeating that a room with a bed and pull out couch qualified as a room with two beds. My husband asked to speak to the manager and she replied with a smirk “I am the manager”. She also said they were full up and that was the only available room. There was no way we were going to be comfortable with this arrangement so now we were stuck in Lancaster on a holiday weekend with no room. Luckily I was able to find a room at the country inn snd suites on highway 30. Such a difference! Friendly staff, two queen beds, separate living room with a desk and couch and a door between the living room and bedroom, two closet areas, and spacious bathroom. The girl even called our room after we had settled in to make sure everything was alright. I am through with “boutique” hotels who give your room away (obviously to someone in the wedding party) and try to stick you in an inferior room. When I told jordan I was reviewing the Lancaster arts on trip advisor she just shrugged. We were told we would not be charged. If they do try to charge us I will update.

This is a boutique hotel as advertised. It is built within an old historic building in a prior Lancaster industrialized area in the NW side of the city. The rooms were clean, well decorated,very well maintained and comfortable. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Cost of rooms with tax can average about $269.00-$369.00 per night. If you are seeking a higher end hotel this is an excellent choice. We enjoyed our stay.

While this hotel looked great online and entering the lobby, it was just filthy everywhere. carpets were stained and torn, walls were dirty, shower stall had mold around the bottom. This made me angry and sad at the same time. This hotel has good bones and could be great, but has been very neglected. Also, I asked for a king bed and was told I could not get one because I booked via a third party, even though the hotel was empty. Her exact words: "well, you get what you pay for." The breakfast was a joke: Jimmy Dean sandwiches, cold cereal, green bananas, and cold water for the tea. Please stay somewhere else, like the Marriott at Penn Square, that was nice!

Awful smell and constant hissing noise in our room that disrupted sleep. Worn lumpy pillows, stained carpet in the room. The front desk worker didn’t think our concerns were serious. If you’re a hotel and offering rooms that disrupt sleep, that’s a problem
