Wonderful place to stay

Very friendly staff that went out of their way to make every thing " perfect " for our family wedding. We even had a few extra out of town guess that they found space for with all the business meeting being held that week . Downtown location close to old farmers market and many antique stores > Do yourself a favor and just walk around going north, east & west from from the front door many new places and sounds await you.

Visit the old style old farmers market just across the street from the hotel and then go " people watching " among all the side attractions there.

Nice place but wrong timing

Hotel is in a beautiful location. The only downside for me was that I went to get a quiet getaway...and there was a rock music festival going on at the hotel, THAT night! Thankful for ear plugs. Hotel was nice and staff were friendly. Was disappointed that no breakfast was provided.

Heart of Lancaster

The hotel is beautiful inside and out. As my memory serves, the lobby entrance has a grand, sweeping feel to it. They took good care of us, too. The man at the front desk comped us free parking in their deck for the weekend just because he and I both had unique last names. I didn't even ask for it -- he just hooked me up. There were free whoopie pies (a Lancaster treat) in a basket at the desk. That was a nice touch. Finally, the price was right. We stayed in the hotel over the weekend leading up to New Years 2013. The room cost about $130 per night, which we thought was decent for holiday.

Nice Hotel

This was our 3rd time at the Marriott at Penn Square. The staff was as friendly as always. We requested a rollaway bed on this trip, and my mom said it was the most comfortable rollaway she has ever slept on!

Very convenient

Staff was extremely friendly and efficient. Room was large, bed comfortable and wonderful view from the 16th floor. Conveniently located right in the center of Lancaster, with lots of historical buildings nearby. Good area to walk around in.

Good hotel

TV service was out; though they were prompt in come for evaluation of the TV, they took long to replace the TV so we eventually cancelled the replacement. They offered to change us rooms but that was quite uncomfortable as we were all unpacked. They should have offered something different like breakfast or something as we did not have TV service at all during our stay. Great location.
