My husband & I stayed here as part of a wedding group. The room was good, clean & comfy, but noise from the night club across the street thumped until 2 am. The shuttle picks up & drops off on the Vine Street entrance - it was unattended and the area in disarray on the way out. On the way... More

I agree with most other reviewers. I stay at a lot of Marriott Hotels worldwide and this hotel has a great location as well as large, clean rooms but food in the Concierge Lounge and bar leaves something to be desired, especially the breakfast items. Also, when they run out of items later (like desserts) they may not be replenished.... More

The good- I travel a lot for work and the room I had at this hotel was one of the most comfortable. I did not have to constantly adjust the room temperature, nice bed, great views, and I liked having the mini fridge. The bad- no coffee shop in the lobby. This is unusual these days and I for one...

A great location in the town center. Nice lobby and friendly staff. Room was also very nice, modern and comfortable. We went to the Concierge lounge for happy hour and enjoyed the complimentary nibbles. Drinks were a little pricey but it was a nice atmosphere. We also had breakfast there and they had a good selection with lots of chopped... More

This hotel books too many events/guests than what they are capable of handling and service suffers accordingly. We arrived at 10:30 pm and the small front entrance was completely clogged, with no space to pull up, check in and unload luggage. We followed vague directions to the parking garage, and after following more vague instructions, found parking on an upper... More

Stayed at the Marriott at Penn Square in Lancaster for two nights in November. Room was clean and comfortable. Very quiet. Enjoyed my stay. Lobby staff were very helpful. Parking was available next to the hotel, convenient.

I love this Marriott! The location in downtown Lancaster is right across from the market. The lobby bar has some great beer and food choices. The staff are always gracious and helpful. Only downside are slow elevators.

I've stayed in Marriotts all over the world, and while this is not my favorite, it's perfectly fine. The rooms are large and clean, and you can't beat the location if you want to explore the city of Lancaster. To do that, you won't even need a car. My only disappointment was the brunch buffet. For the price, and given... More

This hotel was very conveniently situated in the center of Lancaster. There is a market just opposite the hotel and all the restaurants within walking distances. The parking is linked by a bridge to the hotel. We loved the two queen beds. We had a nice view over the city. Rooms were clean and decor was pleasant.

This Marriott is a perfect choice for a Lancaster hotel, particularly due to its location. The rooms with two queen beds are comfortable with an adequate sized bathroom. It is great to be able to walk to some great restaurants, cafes, nightlife and shops right with the general vicinity. (A must see is the Lancaster Central Market which is open... More
