304 - The Ross & Russell Room
In 1796, Michael Ross, the city’s co-founder, set aside a small piece of land here on this site as a place of burial. Room 304 is dedicated to our humble beginnings, back when the “Russell Inn” (1786) and just a few small cabins were all that stood here when Ross envisioned Williamsport as our county seat.
Here at City Hall Grand Hotel, our furnishings are each one of a kind. Josh Butters from Hulk has created a look that is unique to our hotel. Every detail, from each bed and sliding door to the sink and lights, was made exclusively for us. No two rooms are alike, bringing our guests a different experience with each visit.
Our open showers create a space like no other. Separate toilet rooms offer a European flair, and our sliding doors create, and then REcreate, a space to suit the individual's desired look and needs.
Although some rooms are perfect for the couple, we suggest a few rooms for those traveling with children: the FLOOD (Rm308) and/or LUMBER (Rm309) rooms, which are more family-friendly, offer a separate space that easily closes off to provide needed privacy. Or perhaps, one of our traditional suites would better suit your family needs.
Lovingly-restored photographs, including a few floor-to-ceiling applications, allow each visitor a chance to stroll through our city's rich history. Whether every visit brings our guest back to a favorite room, or sparks the curiosity to see what is in the next room, we are sure that each visit will be a historical one.
In this room: Hair dryer, iron/ironing board. This room is also adjacent to a comfortable, common lobby with vending machine, ice maker, microwave, and Keurig machine.
Please Note: Due to the fact that our building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976, altering the building's outside structure is not permitted. Therefore, there are no windows in this room.
IMPORTANT: HERE AT CITY HALL GRAND HOTEL, WE MAY NOT HAVE A STAFF MEMBER AT THE HOTEL UPON YOUR ARRIVAL, AS WE DO NOT HAVE A FRONT DESK. THEREFORE, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT ALL GUESTS HAVE RECEIVED A “PAYMENT CONFIRMATION” AND A “KEY CODE” PRIOR TO ARRIVAL IN ORDER TO ENTER THE BUILDING AND/OR YOUR ROOM. THANK YOU.
