Federal Pointe Inn, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member
Ranked #5 of 28 Hotels in Gettysburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 29, 2013

We were drawn to stay at the "Inn" because of our interest in historic building uses. The owners did a beautiful job of repurposing this building. We stayed in a "king suite" because that was what was available. We're guessing the inclusion of a mini-fridge and pull out couch made this a "suite." The room was huge, tastefully decorated, the beds and bedding first rate
The bath was also lovely with jetted deep tub and glassed walk in shower. The one staff member we saw was helpful and friendly.

Drawbacks: the furniture placement was a bit off for such a large boxy room. One could not see the TV from the couch or the chair which limited viewing to the bed; not very suite like. there was also no table near the couch- left to place coffee cup on floor or balance on lap. The lighting in the bath was harsh for enjoying the soaking tub and there was no exhaust. If we were to return to the hotel we would ask for a room on the other side of the building; on the top floor the noise from highway 30 was LOUD. with trucks and cars passing all night long. it was impossible to sleep with window air as we are accustomed to.

If you are planning a trip through Gettysburg this hotel is beautiful, bright, clean, and fun - just ask for a quieter location or bring ear plugs.

Room Tip: room away from highway 30

The location of Federal Pointe Inn is ideal for anyone visiting the Gettysburg area. I found my room to be well organized with a very restful evening. The owners did a marvelous job converting the former school to a first class hotel. i will certainly book Federal Pointe Inn on my next trip to Gettysburg.

Room Tip: No bad rooms!

My father and I stayed one night at this hotel in mid-March. The ground floor room was very nice. There were two beds, a sitting room and a large bathroom. Great location that was originally a school built prior to 1900.

We recently stayed at Federal Pointe Inn for a one-night getaway from the kids. The hotel has older charm (in a renovated school house) while still feeling brand new. The bedding was 5 star quality (similar to what you would find in a high-end DC hotel) and the room was HUGE. The hotel was also extremely quiet-- perfect to catch up on sleep. And it was an easy walk to downtown. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Splurge for a king bed!

My husband and I visited the hotel this past weekend, and this hotel is TRULY top notch. The front desk employee Vicky was super helpful about restaurants and sightseeing, as well as gave us a tour around the elegant boutique hotel and carried my bags up the stairs to our room. The room was meticulously clean with thoughtful accents- high ceilings, gorgeous curtains, a Keurig coffee maker, granite bathroom floor, just truly lovely. The hotel itself is on the tip of the historic district which is nice because it's a little bit away from the noise yet eminently walkable. If I HAD to nitpick it would be that the hotel offers no restaurant/breakfast option but they are a new property and may add that in the future. There is a solid breakfast spot adjacent to the property that is essentially in their parking lot, so it wasn't a big deal. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and I will tell everyone I know about this gem of a property.

Room Tip: No elevator here..if you have mobility problems make sure to request 2nd floor (which is actually th...

My daughter and I were guests of the Federal Pointe Inn in Gettysburg last week, and wow! What a deal and what a destination. We liked that it was a little out of the hustle bustle of beautiful downtown historic Gettysburg. The renovation was amazing and the room, gorgeous. High ceilings, comfy beds, beautiful double glazed windows looking out over the Point(e!), and what a bathroom. Vicky, who checked us in, even helped us carry our luggage upstairs. We'd stay again in a heartbeat. And it's a short drive to the Inn at Herr Ridge for dinner - fabulous!
