Gf Hotels & Resorts Opens The Yorktowne Hotel, Tapestry Collection by Hilton
The Yorktowne Hotel, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, operated by GF Hotels & Resorts, a full-service ownership and management company specializing in hotels, resorts, golf courses, and other hospitality assets, and Hilton recently announced the much-anticipated grand reopening of the 100-year-old hotel, marking the 100th Tapestry Collection by Hilton, a vibrant and distinct lifestyle hotel brand within Hilton's portfolio.
"Today marks the celebration of Tapestry Collection's 100th hotel opening with The Yorktowne Hotel, an incredible milestone for Hilton's lifestyle category. The category has grown impressively to more than 250 diverse and locally inspired hotels across five brands, with more than 250 in the pipeline," said Matt Schuyler, chief brand officer, Hilton. "More and more people are looking for bespoke experiences in their travels, and this milestone reflects the importance Hilton places on continuously evolving to address the needs of today's guests."
Located in the heart of Downtown York near popular Harrisburg, Gettysburg, Hershey, and Lancaster, this magnificent property features 123 guest rooms with 27 long-term stay suites and more than 10,000 square feet of flexible meeting space to host events from corporate functions to weddings.
The hotel features a complete redesign of the building's interior, with signature amenities and the latest technology, including the Stewart Companies Room for private dining, the WellSpan Ballroom, and The Graham Rooftop Lounge, offering over 4,500 square feet of a beautiful panoramic view. Improvements continued with the well-equipped state-of-the-art fitness center featuring Peloton and The Davidson Lobby Bar and dining room.
After the team began to connect with the local community and business leaders, it became evident that everyone had a "Yorktowne Story." Whether it be from a York resident speaking of their grandparent's wedding ceremony in the Ballroom or memories of their prom from the 70s, the initial tagline became "Everyone Has A Yorktowne Story." This quickly morphed into a call to action; "What's Your Yorktowne Story"
"It's a great honor and privilege to join efforts with the YCIDA, YCEA, and Hilton to bring The Yorktowne Hotel, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, back to the city of York," said Ken Kochenour, founder and chief executive officer, GF Hotels & Resorts and a York College alumnus.
"With its unique history and modern, yet classic design, the impressively restored Yorktowne Hotel tells the story of York's neighborhood and is bringing the community together," said Jenna Hackett, brand leader, Tapestry Collection by Hilton. "As we celebrate Tapestry Collection's 100th opening, The Yorktowne Hotel is an incredible example of this collection and the perfect addition to our growing portfolio of individual hotels."
