Lancaster Marriott at Penn Square continues its $39.4 million renovation in response to continually growing tourism in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. As of last week, the property’s East Tower is officially complete, with 110 new guestrooms across 12 stories. In addition to guestrooms, the tower also features private event spaces indoor and out, along with a signature Marriott M Club Lounge.
The addition of the East Tower takes the property’s number of guestrooms to 416. The East Tower’s guestrooms include 10 city suites with floor-to-ceiling windows, luxury bathrooms and sitting areas.
With the East Tower complete, the property turns its attention to the West Tower. There, planned enhancements include converting junior suites into guestrooms on the sixth and seventh floors, converting the Concierge Room into an Ambassador suite and replacing 70 percent of guestroom bathtubs with showers.
“Once complete, there will be a seamless design throughout our two towers creating a brand-new guest experience,” said Jay Rosenthal, general manager, Lancaster Marriott. “We’ve tailored our guestrooms to meet each guest’s individual needs, while they simultaneously experience a taste of Lancaster’s culture. We hope each guest leaves our hotel having fallen in love with our town the same way we have.”
Three upcoming restaurants at the property include Plough, a modern American eatery with a focus on the region’s agriculture; The Exchange, a rooftop bar and restaurant with views of the city; and cozy dining corner Two Kings, offering daily breakfast.
This summer, The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles began highly-anticipated enhancements. The property celebrates its 10th birthday next year and the renovations are the largest changes the property has ever seen. They impact the hotel lobby, all 123 guestrooms and suites, corridors and Club Lounge.
Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
