very comfy beds!

my husband and i were visiting hershey for a rv show, so we stayed at this sheraton, which was easy to find, located near many fast food stops, and very clean. the restaurant in the hotel is expensive, but the continental breakfast is great! our favorite experience was sleeping in such wonderful beds! great linens, great room temp, and no hotel noise! we would most likely return.

Great family vacation

I stayed here with my family when we visited Hershey's park last time. The hotel is only 15 minutes from the park and is conveniently located off 83. The check in process was fast and the staff were very courteous and helpful. The rooms were clean and the complimentary breakfast was also very good. Overall this hotel gets a 5 star from me.
