“My Experience At The Yorktown.”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Okay, So I am not usually one to complain. BUT, I have to put my opinion out there. I went to the Yorktown in early March.. The only person I would say is an actual nice person that works in this hotel would be the Piano player that volunteers every wednesday.
(If you go there for anything, watch this awesome entertainer.) On the website it says that they have a fitness room. They have a bunch broken weights, and a treadmille. There is No pool, No Hot Tub, TV didn't work and when I called down they said that it could wait till the morning and they would send someone up. They didn't send somebody up, And when I asked again in the morning, none of the people at the desk had any idea what o was talking about. No Communication. It was dated also. Everything in the room was too old.
Pros: The Historical things. That is all.

beautiful hotel with a lot of charm but it is too bad it surroundings don't compliment it all that well. Aside from some government buildings which are always busting from the seams, it appeared every other storefront is vacant.

The hotel staff was incredibly welcoming and kind, from the parking staff to the housekeeping staff. The room was comfortable and spacious. The restaurant on site was good but was quiet, didn't appear to draw a lot of "locals".

Enjoyed the hotel but when in a downtown district, it is alway nice to enjoy its surroundings, unfortunately, its surroundings are depressing. Sorry York, won't be returning anytime soon.

We stayed at the Yorktowne for three nights while our son was competing in a swimming event nearby. I had grown up in the York area and knew this hotel was the place to go back in the day. We arrived to a stately and beautiful lobby, valet parking and friendly staff. I asked for a room on a higher floor in order to get away from the traffic noise. My request was granted. We had a spacious hotel room (the size of two regular hotel rooms) with 10 foot ceilings on the 7th floor. The decor was dated, however, it did not bother us. We were thrilled with the large room and at how quiet the halls were.

Such a sense of history was evident at this hotel. I enjoyed reading the list of famous guests who have stayed at this hotel throughout the years.

I would definitely return to this historic hotel (built in 1925) and recommend it to any person who is more concerned with ambiance and friendly/attentive staff than with the latest furnishings.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor to avoid the traffic noise. Check out both elevators for a list of famous...

Stayed a night here for a wedding that was also being held in one of the gathering rooms. As far as the rooms that held the ceremony and reception everything was very nice with great service. My steak was probably one of the best group ordered steaks I have ever had. As far as the room goes it was large and clean, but very dated. For the price it's not bad, but that was discounted for the group. Staff was helpful, all in all would stay here again.

We lost power for two days due to the ice storm so we checked in to The Yorktowne Hotel. The staff gave us a warm welcome, the room was super clean and the restaurant was great. The room rate was surprisingly low as this is a top quality and beautiful hotel in downtown York. We had a fabulous two nights and the service was outstanding. Thank you!

The Yorktowne Hotel was the site for our daughter's wedding ceremony and reception on 11/16/13. To have the wedding, cocktail hour, reception and lodging for wedding guests made this the perfect venue! My wife and I (father of the bride), our daughter and new son in law were "so pleased" with this special event at this special hotel. This grand old hotel was so elegant, the ballroom for the reception was beautiful, the meals were great, the service was great as well by the entire staff at the hotel. The planning received by the sales and catering staff at the hotel made the wedding day a complete success. Our wedding guests gave us positive comments about this wedding venue. The hotel rooms were wonderful as well !

Beautiful outside and lobby area, although the bedroom had a terrible musty smell and was not very clean. I personally would have preferred to stay at a newer, cleaner hotel for my stay in the area. The valet-only parking option was also slightly annoying.
