At just about 2 ½ hours from NYC, this is a really nice place for a long weekend for people in the NY/NJ area. The DoubleTree Resort and the Willow Valley Inn & Suites right next door share the facilities of both resorts, i.e., stay in one, use the facilities of both: golf course, two pools, tennis, basketball… We have spent several long weekends in both; the Double Tree is a little newer, we like both, but prefer this. Kids (up to about 11) will want to spend hours in the pool at the DoubleTree; there is one at the Inn too, but the Double Tree’s is kind-of like a small indoor water park. The meals are good at the Willow Tree Restaurant & Smorgasbord (part of the Willow Valley Inn & Suites) – it is the only smorgasbord our family visits in the area. But, If you happen to visit on a weekend when there is a Palm Court Brunch at the Double Tree, be sure to do that – it is really nice. These hotels are also pretty close to the Sight & Sound Theatre (http://www.sight-sound.com/WebSiteSS/home.do) which we always make part of our weekend; the quality of the shows there is more what one would expect from Broadway than Lancaster.
