Very good location at one end of the business district so restaurants & shops all walkable.
The restoration of this historic building was well done and recent (has only been a hotel for 13 months, the evening desk clerk informed us, having previously been a school since the 1800s.)
Beautiful shower, high ceilings, Keurig in the room for coffee, as other reviewers mention. Desk clerk showing us to the room was a nice touch. A couple of little things missing to make it perfect like towel bars by the sink and outlets to charge my phone on the nightstand-not biggies, but the little things needed to move from 4 to 5 stars.

Our family stayed here for 4 nights in late August. The room was beautiful very spacious. Also our room had an extra sitting room which was perfect for reading or watching TV. The old school is nicely restored and the walls in both the rooms and hallways have prints of paintings depicting the battle of Gettysburg and the Civil War. We found the Federal Pointe to be an excellent place to stay while in Gettysburg only about a short 3 minute walk into Lincoln Square.

My husband and I stooped in without reservations and were treated royally on a Tuesday. Nick was the amazingly efficient, informative and friendly desk clerk actually showed us several rooms to choose from and gave us a tour of the recently renovated School building turned into lavish Inn. Yes, I found the Principal's office too! Top class with a Keuric Coffee marked in the room. Very comfortable beds, with historic painting of the Battle of Gettysburg throughout the Inn. I highly recommend this establishment. They will be opening bar with food on the premises shortly but the restaurants are in walking distance,

Room Tip: All rooms are great. It depends on your needs.

What a lovely hotel! We stayed only one night, but in that short time were suitably impressed. The renovations to this old nineteenth century school have been done with great attention to detail. The charming architectural elements have been preserved, while keeping an eye on style and comfort. Our room was spacious, owing in part to the high ceilings, and very attractively decorated. The queen beds were especially comfortable. The bathroom, also fitted with high ceilings, boasted gleaming granite and a handsome single sink console. The only drawback in my mind was the lighting, and the absence of an additional mirror for shaving and makeup.

Although no breakfast is served, coffee is available in the morning, as well as tea and scones in the afternoon. For those who want a fuller breakfast, Dunlap's Restaurant is right next door. A small "pub" is about to open in the basement of the hotel, where there is also a meeting room and a fitness center, which includes three machines.

The hotel is well located between the center of town, Gettysburg College and the battlefield. The center of Gettysburg can get very noisy and cramped, so we welcomed being situated just a few blocks away, where it was quiet and where there was ample on-site parking. It's a particularly good location for families visiting the Gettysburg College campus.

Federal Pointe Inn is a new hotel, and I understand, reading some of the other reviews, that there may still be some kinks that need to be ironed out. But for us, it was a most enjoyable stay, and we would gladly return.

My experience completely aligns with reviewer LoriL3020. Our room was very clean and there was not one bug in sight as mentioned by another reviewer. I am very particular and obsessive about cleanliness and I didn't find one issue. My only suggestion is the bathroom could use better lighting over the mirror.
