... imagine that Christmas time here becomes a pilgrims paradise. The only 'Stars' here in Bethlehem are the large one on the Main Street, and several others on buildings and an illuminated one above the town, although lots of real stars have stayed at this hotel, including Bob Dylan, Tony Bennett, Ray Charles, James Taylor and many others. We had a great brunch at the hotel. It attracts guests from miles around every ...
Shortish drive today but heavy traffic and long delay for (60 minutes) while they paved a roundabout through which highways go in all directions, obviously they have not heard of 'night roadworks'. Lancaster is quite pretty but seems more residential in the downtown area than commercial or retail. The Farmers Market is good with lots of Amish stallholders using modern technology to take your money. The amish stallholders are very adept ...
Yesterday we left our RV at the KOA and drove 90 miles to Atlantic City for one night. We got a comp room because we are Total Rewards Members and we left there with more money than we brought so it was a fun trip. Ahhh, large beds and a regular shower.
... hotel which was nice on the day it rained to use the waterpark. The kids had a blast !! We traveled out to Jessica's Buggy Ride. The ride out into the farms on a back road was a reminder of Laura Ingalls Little House on the Praire. Everyone was so much nice to us and made us feel welcome. Highly recommend everyone to visit Lancaster, ...
We went from the Revolutionary War yesterday to the Civil War today. We took a bus tour of the Gettysburg Battlefield. It was a great 2 hours that took us through this 3 days of the war in great detail. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about this particular battle.

Historical Traveler Reviews Lancaster Arts Hotel
We stayed one night at this place, and it was incredible!
Awesome Great Did I Say Awesome
This place was more than a pleasant surprise. The room was great. I especially loved how they retain the history of the place and mixed it with an modern touch. Not overly done. From the lobby to the room.
I had friends who stayed in the new section. I thought the deco would
be that of a typical hotel. Even there that neveau touch was evident.
I want to go back to Lancaster just to stay at the hotel.
This is going to be a fabulous little boutique hotel in downtown Lancaster when all the kinks are finally worked. Which I hope is soon since the place had been opened for over 6-mths. Easy walking distance to the market and downtown area. The entire decor is contemporary minimalistic. Very clean with great amenities.
We recently stay at the Lancaster Arts Hotel. We go to Lancaster quite often to visit family and were always disappointed in the choice of places to stay. When the Lancaster Arts Hotel opened , we could wait to stay there. It is a converted warehouse and has a very cool interior and lots of nice art throughout the hotel. Our room was a nice size and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel staff seemed friendly but inexperienced. We could not get the Internet service via the TV to work but this was not much of a concern given we were staying just one night. When we checked in we were told that in the morning there was a free continental breakfast but when we went down to check out the breakfast there was no food left. The location is ideal for visiting F&M college and convenient for visiting the city given the city is small.
We recently stayed in a Loft Suite at the brand-new Lancaster Arts Hotel. We are from the area, but just needed a little weekend getaway for two. The artistic decor in the common areas and our room was amazing! All local artists! It is obvious from the moment you walk in that a lot of thought and care were put into making this building what it is today. Our suite was large and most of the furniture was hand-made in Lancaster County. We were impressed with the quality of linens, towels, and other items in our room. It was not your typical hotel! We had two flat screen tv's which could also provide internet access and a lovely jacuzzi. Staff was very pleasant and helpful; they made us feel right at home. Free continental breakfast was provided. Pastries from a local bakery, yogurt from a Lancaster Co. Dairy, and tea from a local tea shop were pleasant surprises. There is a restaurant on site whose menu features local products and all-organic fare. There are also two nice Italian restaurants within walking distance.
My family came to visit some relatives over New Years weekend in Lancaster. This is an annual trip for us. Normally, we stay out on the Lincoln Highway - but the arts hotel was close to family. They made the reservations for us.
Our room was a "loft suite" and we really were not expecting to pay New York City prices in a small town like Lancaster. We tried to enjoy our vacation but couldn't get the thought of paying so much for a hotel that didn't even have a free breakfast in the morning. The suite was at least $100 more than other nice hotels charge. Wow.
We stayed at the Lancaster Arts while visiting my family in the area--I actually grew up in Lancaster City, and frankly Lancaster never used to have a hotel of this caliber. If you're used to and enjoy the amenities associated with a luxury hotel, this is really the only game in town. The building's renovation was really well executed and the room's furnishings and the common areas are really quite nice. The hotel is also really a great value for what it is, as a hotel this nice in a larger city would easily be over $200. We were also pretty impressed by the restauarant and bar, newly opened--the food was really good and uses local produce (which is excellent). On another note, this area of town may frighten some more squeamish suburbanite visitors but the immediate area is perfectly safe--it's actually mostly pretty cool old brick tobacco warehouses around the hotel...Lancaster, even downtown has very low crime and what crime there is is usually local and drug related.
My family and I stayed here during a weekend visit to see the Miracle of Christmas at the Sight & Sound Theater in Strausburg, PA. The hotel in general was fabulous, that is if you like a modern chic, contemporary flare; brick-exposed walls, old wood beams and floors mixed with contemporary furnishing. The two-room suite we occupied was clean, beautiful and airy (high ceiling). The suite's amenities included, but were not limited to, two flat planel tvs, a kitchenette, jacuzzi and large bathroom with a nice array of toiletries. Also, the hotel provided free wireless internet service. The hotel's staff was ultra-friendly and very accomodating starting with a warm greeting upon our arrival and making sure our stay exceeded our expectations. The continental breakfast was a nice treat, as well. The rates were more than reasonable! My family and I would definately consider staying here, again, if we were to visit the area in the near future. Also, check out the hotel's restaurant, "John J. Jeffries," if you have the chance. However, be sure to make reservations as early as possible. The food is delicious!!
Fantastic hotel. I was blown away by the amenities and the service, and loved the character of the place. I get to Lancaster often, and this will surely be my first choice from now on.
Downtown and away from amish
Nice, clean hotel - but not in a visitor friendly location. The price was also more expensive than other hotels closer to the lancaster outlets. It felt so fancy that it was "out of place" for its surroundings but we wanted to be fair and try it.
Be smart and stay at one of the more dependable and convenient chain hotels on route 30 east near the amish attractions.
