YORK, Pa – (WHTM) – The landmark Yorktowne Hotel is getting millions of dollars in state aid for its long-awaited facelift.
The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program has awarded a $20-million grant to upgrade rooms, demolish a garage, and make mechanical upgrades to the historic downtown hotel.
“This project will help maintain the Yorktowne Hotel as an anchor in the community while creating and retaining jobs downtown,” state Rep. Kevin Schreiber (D-York) said.
The hotel, which was built in 1925, was purchased by the York County Industrial Development Authority for $1.8 million dollars.
The hotel will close next month when renovations begin.
