4.5 out of 5. Based on 684 guest reviews , Very Good

Property Description

Brick-paved history. Contemporary style. Old World simplicity. World-class service.

Look beyond the rolling farms and the creak and clop of the horses-and-buggies, and discover the Lancaster Arts Hotel. A boutique experience nestled between pastoral elegance and metropolitan charm, the hotel is housed in a historic tobacco warehouse near Lancaster’s city center. We embrace the best of contemporary and traditional design in an idiosyncratic style we call rustic eclecticism and feature black concrete lobby floors, exposed wooden beams, and locally-made furniture. Designed with details in mind, the hotel is characterized by its commitment to the indigenous art scene, as you'll find in our first-floor art gallery.

Your group will indulge in the best that Lancaster has to offer in one of our 47 rooms and 16 suites, each a distinctive retreat from the confines of daily life. While all the rooms include standard amenities such as wireless high-speed internet access, coffeemakers, hair dryers, and irons, each is distinguished by a unique layout and its own singular artwork.

Explore the advantages of the hotel’s convenient location. After a scenic 10-minute drive, your group will be in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country and the simpler past of the Plain Sects. Or hop on the Red Rose trolley to visit downtown Lancaster and its many galleries, shops, museums, and restaurants. Afterwards, enjoy a night out at the ballpark -- Clipper Magazine Stadium, home to Lancaster’s own Atlantic League Barnstormers, is right around the corner from the hotel.

We guarantee that every stay with us will be an original.
