If your WordCamp weekend will be longer than a day trip, Lancaster welcomes you with a unique array of rooms to accommodate your stay.
Near the Venue & in Downtown Lancaster
Lancaster, Pennsylvania is a friendly, vibrant, and walkable city with deep roots in American history. Today, Lancaster is home to thriving theater and arts scenes, hundreds of casual and fine dining restaurants, five museums, and many attractive events.
Guests staying at the Lancaster Marriott at Penn Square will rest at our city’s center and wake up across the street from Lancaster Central Market, the oldest farmer’s market in the country. The best reason to stay Friday night may be because Central Market is not open on Sunday mornings.
The Lancaster Arts Hotel is a boutique hotel of just five floors, filled with contemporary art, and built in a 19th century tobacco warehouse. Today, the hotel is a smoke-free building that also houses a restaurant.
The Hotel Lancaster is two blocks north of the square and was designed for business travelers from top to bottom.
The closest rooms to our wonderful venue, the IU13 Conference and Training Center, are just down the street at the Cork Factory Hotel. Unfortunately, we have been told that they are booked for the weekend of March 4th.
Outside City Limits & Amenities Galore
The Eden Resort has two restaurants situated in an amenity-rich, relaxing environment for guests. The Eden is also home to a gorgeous wedding venue and sits adjacent to route 30, providing perhaps the best access to our areas highways.
Outside City Limits & Near Tourist Attractions
A few miles east of Lancaster on Route 30, a bustling shopping district attracts so many tourists that hotels are built faster than mapping services can create listings for them. Tanger & Rockvale outlet shopping centers, the (closed for the winter) Dutch Wonderland children’s amusement park, and Amish shops & villages are key drivers behind the nearly two billion dollars that are spent by tourists in Lancaster County each year. Choosing a hotel on route 30 near this business district will mean competitive rates and traffic with access to hundreds of retail stores and restaurants.
