I am one who certainly enjoys history and historical places. The Yorktown Hotel does have some historical charm, but not much more. Built in the 1920's, the hotel does a good job of keeping the flavor of that era, but just couldn't get me to think elegant. They have a wide selection of rooms and suites which are well appointed. We attended a wedding & reception there which was well done, and very nice in their ballrooms. The city of York, Pa also has a lot of charm, with many vintage buildings and architectural styles in the downtown area, but there is a fine line between downtown and areas you might not want to be in after dark. Quite a variety of restaurants and pubs nearby. Again, a nice hotel, but walking down one long hallway, I couldn't help but flashback to the hotel in "The Shining."
