About this event
The long awaited Third Thursday Social at the Yorktowne is here! Join the York Young Professionals in May at the Yorktowne Hotel for our 5th social of the year!
THE YORKTOWNE HOTEL, Tapestry Collection by Hilton
Situated in the heart of downtown York, The Yorktowne Hotel is a one-of-a-kind and magnificently restored hotel. Considered the “Cornerstone of York” since1925, the grand hotel in York, PA borrows from its rich history and blends it with the contemporary. The Yorktowne was originally designed in a renaissance revival style and spans 14 stories. This hotel features unique artwork from locally commissioned artists some of which was discovered and restored during the renovation. The beautiful terrazzo flooring from 1925 was found beneath three layers of carpet in the main Davidson lobby. The cutler mailbox was a staple of the hotel since opening in 1925 and in each guest room one can see the brass mail chutes which carry mail to the lobby through glass enclosures. The main revolving door was original to the hotel in 1925 and still serves its purpose of welcoming guests to this day. The mural discovered in the mail lobby depicts a traveler arriving at his destination and was created by renowned artist Cornelius Hicks (who also painted the Wellspan ballroom’s George Washington). The Yorktowne is conveniently located, and only a short walk away from the many dining options of Restaurant Row and Central Market House. If you are looking for entertainment, The Appell Center for Performing Arts is only a 5 minute walk and Wellspan Park is a half mile away. The Yorktowne is the ideal location for visitors of York and lovers of art and history so come experience the Yorktowne for yourself with YYP!
