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.
