If you want a room that is out of the ordinary and has that look of well preserved history this is your place. Rates are competitive with local motels and the experience is unforgettable. Your within blocks of the city market, baseball stadium, many pubs and restaurants as well as local revolutionary historic sites located just blocks away. Two restaurants... More

I was one of the few in my group who opted to drive in and out for conference. The others stayed overnight. I had originally thought it was a shame that I could not manage the overnight. After listening to my colleagues horror stories about their night at this hotel, I was grateful I had passed. The food was good.... More

This historic hotel was the place to stay for Presidents and celebrities for many of its past 90 years. Everyone from Sinatra to Nixon stayed here, It has the feel of a grand old hotel, and some nice features. The rooms were very clean, and the bed was comfortable. The problem was that the touches one would expect in an... More

I checked in at 9 pm and was checking out 7 am the next day. The room was large and the bed was really comfortable - the good. See Adam P review to add to my review. It had the smallest bathroom - the sink was in another room - and the lowest toilet seat every. Anyway, the next morning... More

Historic - yes. That means a place much in need of a near total rehab to fix things such as: peeling wallpaper and plaster in the room, stains on the shabby carpet, disgusting looking stains on the bathroom ceiling, scuffed doors, tired furniture, stairs from the street, etc.. The pillows are very hard and the bedding and towels are below... More

We stayed at the Yorktowne on Saturday, June 25th and left Sunday, June 26th. The building itself has such a historical look and vintage charm. The lobby is clean and very inviting harking back to the Roaring 20's. The front desk staff were very courteous and friendly. The best part? We had a key to the room. Not a key... More

I have family in the area, and I remember the glory days of this hotel. Sadly glory fades. I generally love historical hotels (Hotel del Coronado and Stonewall Jackson Are my favorites )...and the quirks that go with them. Actual keys, mail chute, lobby...great examples. Where the experience went foul was the room. Plenty people have said it, so I... More

I stayed hear for a few days last week and the staff was very courteous even giving me a discounted rate for being a DC firefighter. I felt like I was back in time , also the list of people that stayed here was so cool. I mean I could have been in the same room as frank sinatra.

We were in the area for a wedding, and we love historical hotels and history in general, so the Yorktowne seemed like the perfect choice. Walking up the stairs into the lobby reminded me of the beautiful Francis Marion in Charleston. You could see all the beautiful details of the 1920 but this hotel had not been maintained as well...
