Funky, comfortable spot close to F&M campus

Pros: Beds, breakfast, location
Cons: more convenient outlets for charging devices
Location: very close to F&M and Iron Hill restaurants and shops
Loved the Lancaster Arts! First time staying there even though I'm an F&M alum. Artwork everywhere, exposed brick, funky furniture. Easy parking, easy check-in. Great bar although I didn't get a chance to enjoy it. Nice breakfast included in room rate -- cheeses, hard-boiled eggs, toast, fruit, cereals, yogurt, Belgian waffles, among other goodies. Good coffee with nice-sized to-go cups. Rooms very comfortable, quiet. Chocolates on pillow in the evening -- didn't expect that but loved it -- along with a red rose in a cool vase. Nice smelling shampoo etc in bathroom. Will def stay there again!

A good clean Hotel.

We stayed in this hotel for one night. The room was nice with zuccuzi and a comfortable bed and in a relatively quiet location. Good parking facility in their own garage. The location is not ideal and away from all main attactions. Downtown Lancaster is a good 20/25 minutes walk. The breakfast was OK.

Absolutely Wonderful!

We stayed at the Lancaster Arts Hotel for one night on a Saturday. From the time we checked in until the time we checked out, every attention to detail and every need we expressed was handled in a professional, corteous manner(and with a smile). The front desk staff was friendly and went out of their way to see to our every need as met. The rooms were SPECTACULAR; from the roses and chocolates on our pillows, to the bis fluufy robes provided for after our soak in the hottub. The restaurant that was reccomended to us by the front desk staff was amazing; if you get the chance, check out Checker's Bistro(Great food, very romantic, and only a block from the hotel). We will definitely treat ourselves and stay again! Thank you for a wonderful experience.
