A Relaxing Escape

The Four Points Sheraton was simply gorgeous. The room's light colors was a change from the dark colors you normaly get from other hotels.The grounds were nicely kept and the atrium in the lobby was exquiste. The bathroom was emmaculate and soothing. The price and convience of being 15 minutes from Hershey made it a plus. Thank you Sheraton for making my stay a memorable one.

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.

Wonderful

We had the best time! Romes are clean very roomy, The only thing I would change would be the noise from downstairs, maybe put in some thicker glass or something..

Very clean and new

I have stood at many places in Hershey including the Hershey Hotel and Hershey Lodge. I would definitely go back to this hotel. It was completely updated and clean. The outside of the hotel doesn't do it justice but the rooms were great and lobby was excellent. I did not visit the pool, game room or gym. I stood here and want to Hershey. The restaurant could be better but there are plenty of places to eat around the area. Based on rooms and cleanliness the hotel is great.

Great stay after a long day at Hershey Park

We only stayed one night after going to Hershey Park. Staff was very friendly, room very clean, beds nice and comfy, lots of soft pillows, bathroom very clean, shower great! Lots of hot water for all 4 of us to take a shower. TV was nice. There were computers in the lobby to get on if needed. There was a bar that had a wonderful Buffet Breakfast for a decent price. Kids ate free, so that was wonderful! The indoor pool was very clean looking and not cold at all. Guests were very thoughtful of not splashing too much. One family gave us a ball to bat around! An all around wonderful stay here at Best Western! If we're ever in the area again, we'll definitely stay here again! Just wish we had more time!
