I enjoyed 5 nights at this hotel with my husband and two young daughters (age 4 & 5). The pool area is lovely, the lobby is beautiful and rooms were very clean and included a little mini fridge. This hotel was a great value for what we paid and the ammenities offered. BUT.... beware of this neighborhood if you are traveling with children. We encountered many, many beggers. I have traveled with my children in and out of NYC and Philadelphia countless times and have never had the creepy feeling and experience we had in downtown Lancaster. (I work in downtown Newark, NJ so I am not some country bumpkin). Homeless people sleeping in the ATM outside and I was approached by several people pan handling when I was walking for coffee at 9am with my 5 year old. It was very uncomfortable. I would not stay in downtown again with my family I would opt for a hotel out near the parks. It is apparent that they are trying to create a hip downtown artsy vibe they are just not there yet if you are bringing children, I would stay again with just my husband and enjoy the hotel and a few of the area shops but this is not a "family" destination.
