We had high hopes for this place. It is pretty, decorated nicely for the time period, and clean. But our room is cold and the heat sources are not steady...so you either roast or freeze. Not quite as private as we hoped for either. And certain aspects are kinda

What a beautiful hotel! It’s in an old school and in our room you could still see where the chalkboard was! We stayed in a King Suite with a beautiful four poster bed, lots of room, and a tub with air jets big enough for two. Great historic atmosphere with all the modern

We stayed here years ago, shortly after it opened. It’s a former elementary school that was converted into s hotel. We had a nice corner room. But there are some glaring negatives for this place. The main one is problems with the heat in the rooms. No matter how we tried to turn

Response from Federal_Pointe, Owner at Federal Pointe Inn, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member
Responded 3 weeks ago
We agree that the comments of this review are disappointing and very surprising! Federal Pointe Inn is the premier hotel in Gettysburg and the comments of this review are "not" a reflection of our upscale Gettysburg hotel. On behalf of the staff and the owner, we do want to thank the reviewer for staying at our award winning hotel on several occasions. We appreciate your feedback about your nice corner room and advising others reading this review to stay at our national registry hotel. Over the years, Federal Pointe Inn has received many national honors and is proud of our award winning historic hotel. Our grand history reflects our grand hotel and our great ratings from guests! Addressing the reviewer's other comments; why would the reviewer provide a negative comment of no breakfast when the reviewer had stayed several times at Federal Pointe Inn and was familiar that we do not offer a complimentary breakfast. What the reviewer forgot to state in the review is Federal Pointe Inn offers; complimentary parking, complimentary bottled spring water, complimentary coffee service, complimentary newspaper, complimentary daily tea and sconces, a pub & restaurant, a fitness center and much more! The reviewer also commented on our small TV's. This comment is actually a compliment on large size of our rooms and gives the illusion that the 27" flat screen HD LG TV's are small. It's just an illusion but thank you for highlight our room size. Finally the heat.... Federal Pointe Inn does not have radiators as stated by the review. As a matter of fact, we designed and equipped each room with separate heating systems to benefit our guests. Both heat systems are controlled by the guest for an individuals comfort level. So we are disappointed that the reviewer did not understand the heating system and we apologize. Our staff is always here to assist our great guests to make their experience enjoyable.

Got a visit in during mid winter. Our king room was elegantly appointed and super clean. They've done a marvelous job rehabbing and decorating this historic building. Loved the fourteen foot ceilings. Polite and accommodating staff. Cool uniforms....laugh if yiu will but I think

This was overall a great stay in the off season of Gettysburg. We stayed here Presidents Day Weekend so rates were very affordable. The location is pretty great, walking distance to most anything you need but not directly in the town center. The front desk couldn't have been

Is the hotel pet friendly?
Good Morning! Federal Pointe Inn is not pet friendly. Federal Pointe Inn must balance the experience of all guests with pet allergies, thus unfortunately, we do not accept any pets.

"We haven't had a bad room - if you stay on the second floor there isn't an elevator."
"If you can't do steps make sure you get a room on the first floor as there is no elevator."
"There is no elevator, so if you avoid steps or have lots of luggage, you will want the main floor"
"Ask for the carriage house."
"We had corner suite which was great, but the porch is right there. Make sure your blinds are drawn!!"
