“I'll be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights for Easter weekend. Great staff, friendly and helpful. Room was modern and clean. One of the nicest Marriott Courtyard hotels and we stay only at Marriott hotels. The location was good, close to Route 30 and shopping. Also close to Route 222. Will definitely stay here again.

One of the nicest hotels I've stayed at in Lancaster. You can tell by all the modern amenities they spend money on upkeep. The staff was very helpful and does a great job keeping the place clean.

I'm taking the time to review this hotel because its staff took the time to help us. My husband woke up in the middle of the night with low blood sugar. He called the front desk, and within minutes, someone arrived with snacks to help level him out.
Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful during our stay. As we were checking out, I mentioned to the front desk clerk that my husband (in addition to his blood sugar episode) had come down with a nasty cold. He was concerned and asked if he could do anything, and offered us a free drink to help keep my husband hydrated on the trip home.
Our group (Confederation of Union Generals) also took over the lobby/bar area on Saturday night after our Civil War Ball, and staff was again friendly and responsive. I've been in hotels where, late at night, they just want to close things up. Instead, our group continued socializing and enjoying the last moments of our stay in Lancaster. Earlier in the evening, the hotel provided shuttle service to our main event, eliminating parking/navigating problems.
Our room was lovely (I needed more closet space, but then again, who usually travels with uniforms and hoop skirts?), and the free breakfast was bountiful. But a good bed or bagel is easy enough to provide--it's putting together a friendly, helpful staff that really sets a hotel apart, and the Courtyard has that.

Our family of 4 stayed here for one night over Presidents Day weekend. This hotel had everything we expected and needed. We especially enjoyed the indoor pool. All the staff we interacted with were friendly and helpful. They were in the midst of a small renovation to their lobby during our stay, but we didn't eat at the hotel so we weren't affected by it.

I've stayed at many hotels in Lancaster and this one is fine.
A drawback is that there are no places to eat within walking distance.
Another very unfortunate drawback is that this Courtyard is undergoing the renovation that brings the Bistro concept to the lobby.
Sorry, but I hate the new look that Courtyard is forcing on the towels and I've moved many of stays away from them in favor of Hilton Garden Inn's as a result.

Thank you for your comments regarding our hotel!
Although we are adding the Bistro to our hotel, our guests have told us they like us the way we are. Therefore, the Bistro and Starbucks are being added, as well as a lobby refresh, while we keep our lounge and breakfast buffet. We always had such great repsonse to these areas, we did not wish to eliminate them. We have been able to blend the best of the old and the new!
We also have many great restaurants close to the hotel, including many fine dining and casual dining options.

I've stayed at many hotels in the Lancaster area. One thing you need to look for is a place that is not too close or directly on the major roadways ( really noisy even at night!). This Couryard is tucked just far enough off Rt 30 to be quiet but still close enough to all the action. This is a good launch point to Hershey park and all that down town Lancaster has to offer. The Amish areas are closer to Paradise and Bird in hand than Lancaster but it's an easy drive over there via Rt 30 .
The rooms here were clean fresh and new. I really appreciated the mini frig right in the room! The pool and hot tub were also warm and well taken care of. I'd certainly stay here again!
