“Unique hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013

We have stayed here twice and have enjoyed both accommodations. On one occasion we stayed in a jr. suite with a living area with sofa bed, desk and kitchenette just past the entrance to the room and a bedroom behind the living area (no door closure) with a king size bed and soaking tub just outside of the bathroom. This past weekend we stayed in a standard queen room. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are unique. I really enjoy the breakfast area with nice indoor and outdoor areas along with a thoughtful selection of breakfast items from which to choose. Aside from the art which is placed throughout the hotel, I have enjoyed two nice meals at the farm to table restaurant located in the hotel as well as the bicycles that the hotel provides to guests to ride around town. In fact, on one occasion we left our daughters at a swim meet and they were able to ride the bikes back to the hotel as it is very close to the natatorium at F&M. Our third floor accommodation was quiet in spite of being near the elevator and our suite was was a bit noisy being a floor closer to the restaurant; earplugs solved the problem.

Room Tip: There is no pool or spa at this hotel.

Thank you so much for your kind words about our historic boutique hotel. As you touched upon, we have many different room types to accomodate our guests and each room has it's own personality. By having the bikes for our guests it gives our guests a unique perspective of our city. Hopefully when you stay with us in the future you can take advantage of the YMCA that is directly across the street from us and use their pool and whirlpools free of charge.

This hotel is so gorgeous and unique, I just fell in love. We even were upgraded to a jacuzzi suite. The hotel is within walking distance to all sorts of things. We went to the Lancaster Brewery & The Fridge, both amazing places.

The beds were so comfortable and the art throughout the hotel and in the rooms was such a nice touch.

Loved the free breakfast.

Go, you won't be dissapointed!

We visited this hotel during our trip through Canada and the U.S.A.. Since we arrived by car it was good that the hotel had a great priavate parking.

The rooms were great, and very big. The bed was great and the airconditioning was very good. The bathroom was amazing with a great big shower. With the bigscreen TV, streetview, quiete rooms and very spacious rooms made it a great rooms. The artwork in the room gave the room even more special.

The location was good, but on the day we arrived at Lancaster there wasn't much to do in town.The Staff was very helpfull, and even offered us discount on the breakfast because we didn't take that much as the usual visitors.

Loved this hotel in an old tobacco warehouse. Convenient location. Great restaurant that foodies would like. Would definitely stay here again. Friendly, helpful staff. Free wi-fi & parking. Rooms were large, high ceilings, exposed brick, great flat screen TV.

We spent a long weekend in Lancaster and enjoyed greatly our stay at the Lancaster Arts hotel. The only blemish was that we needed an early dinner before a theater performance on Saturday and were informed when we went to the hotel restaurant that they were fully booked. It would have been helpful if we could have been warned when we checked in on Friday. Breakfasts are pretty minimal and we are accustomed to much stronger coffee so found the weak coffee disappointing

This was a wonderful, fun, eclectic and great hotel with one caveat. Make sure your room is not anywhere near an ice maker or the elevator. The walls are thin and you can hear everything. Street noise on the weekends also bothersome. The hotel and staff in and of itself is exceptional with the room amenities very nice and beds super comfy and turn down service a treat. Everyone from the front desk to the room stylists were friendly, accomodating and simply wonderful! The hotel restaurant was delicious with exceptional bar service. The area fun and eclectic. Make sure to use one of the hotels bikes and have fun exploring the area - only make sure it is later in the day in particular on the weekends as the area is not too biker friendly and the traffic difficult to navigate on bicycle. Later in the day on a saturday was a breeze. Breakfast buffett not up to par with quality of the hotel with premade breakfast items lacking fresh foods, but suffices. I highly recommend this hotel with the room location being something to keep in mind.

Room Tip: stay away from elevators and ice machines

My husband and two adult daughters spent the weekend at the Lancaster Arts Hotel. What a find! We were there to check out Sight and Sound Theater in Strasburg for the first time. It was about a 20 min. drive.

We had a lovely room that was plenty big enough for us. The brick walls and the art work throughout the hotel were a nice change from the typical hotel room. The window even opened giving us the much appreciated warm spring air.

We had no issues with noise. The bathroom was large and airy and modern. The lobby is very
impressive and the breakfast included was better than most. Real fresh fruit, cheese, yogurt with toppings, granola, egg wraps, the usual bagels etc...great coffee. It was just right.

The location is wonderful, we were able to walk from the hotel into the Arts district, have dinner and continue checking out the area. We felt safe and the walk was very doable. It is a historic area which I love. We would go there again.

It is a bit expensive compared to other hotels but if you want an experience rather than just a place to sleep it is worth it.
