As officials prep for its Nov. 18 opening, the new hotel on the campus of Rock Lititz vows to its future guests: “We will, we will rock you to sleep.”

Hotel Rock Lititz is the newest addition to Rock Lititz’s 96-acre campus, which includes a rehearsal studio for touring stars and the Pod 2 building, which hosts nearly 30 companies, many of which are in the entertainment industry.

The five-floor, 92,000-square-foot hotel is built with traveling entertainers and businesspeople in mind, with black-out curtains and soundproofing in many of the 139 rooms. But anyone is welcome to stay. 

Along with a pool, lounge areas and table games on the hotel's first floor is Per Diem, a full-service restaurant and bar. At a media preview on Nov. 14, Josh Funk, whose company TFB Hospitality owns and manages the restaurant, described it as farm-to-table with a rock-and-roll flair. The restaurant will be open to the public starting Nov. 16.

The hotel also includes 3,000 square feet of meeting space.

Paying tribute to and involving the Lancaster County community was a major component of the hotel’s design. 

"Ninety-nine percent of the craftsmen and construction resources have come from Lancaster County," said Nimesh Shah, managing partner of As One Management, the King of Prussia-based operator of the hotel.

Shah and principals from Amerimar Realty Co. and ADCO American Development Co.y make up ARC One Lititz Partners, the entity that owns Hotel Rock Lititz.

Five of the live-event production companies in Rock Lititz’s Pod 2 community put their mark on elements of the hotel’s decor and architecture. Moving nano-winches that once helped create on-stage visual elements during concerts produced by TAIT now adorn windows on the first floor of Hotel Rock Lititz, while repurposed vintage speakers from Clair Brothers’ sound company welcome guests at the reception desk and on the third-floor elevator landing. Other Rock Lititz businesses involved include ATOMIC, Pyrotek Special Effects and Stray Production Services.

Works from Lancaster County artists are also featured in rooms and hallways.

"Hotels pop up every day, and they’re the same box over and over. We wanted to make sure we were different," hotel manager Christina Turley said.

Deluxe-tier rooms start at $169 per night. Larger suites are designed for longer stays and incorporate touches of life on the road, like forgotten backstage passes digitized and turned into wall decor. Old equipment cases have been turned into desks and sliding bathroom doors. Suites start at $209/night.

Two penthouses, starting at $800/night, have private entrances and views of Lancaster County farmland.

Simple calculations say that you are allowed to lose one transaction out of three. If you start with $100 and you earn $80, and then you win another one, you have a profit of $160 from two Evokefinance transactions, and if you lose the third one, you will still be a winner overall.

That's great news to hear. Having great hotels, especially in travel destinations are super important for the fame of such places.
