Excellent Hotel for Business in Harrisburg

Would recommend Tue, May 5, 2015
The hotel is newly remodeled, and the facility and rooms were like new. Bed was very comfortable, with plenty of pillows. Quiet and staff was frendly and helpful. Price about half of downtown hotels, which are not as nice. About 3 miles from downtown Harrisburg.

We had a delightful time. We were there to see a concert. Had dinner at the hotel and said how great the restaurant would be for our favorite singer to perform.

Great location for Hershey Park

Would recommend Sun, Aug 24, 2014
My girlfriend and I stayed here two nights while visiting Hershey Park. The staff was great, and the location was pretty convenient for Hershey Park (though it's kind of isolated otherwise). Our one main complaint was the location of the pool. Rooms overlooking the pool are subject to the sounds of screaming children non-stop. It's supposed to close at 10, but for a business hotel, that still seems late (and it wasn't strictly enforced).

Overnight Stay to Hershey

Would recommend Tue, Aug 12, 2014
Hotel staff was great - especially Shawn at the front desk. The hotel staff couldn't be more accommodating or pleasant. Great pool for the kids as well as small game room. Great stay for a trip to Hershey Park. Will certainly be back.

Dining

O'Reilly's food was mediocre. Our waitress was great but the food was not. Would recommend going elsewhere. Only eat there if convenience is a priority.

Quick trip to Hershey

Would recommend Sun, Jun 29, 2014
The staff was very nice and courteous, check-in and check-out was quick. One little problem we had was our room faced the highway, so it could get a little loud at night. Not completely disruptive, but I would try to not stay in a room on that side again. We really liked the pub in the hotel, wait staff was pleasant and helpful. We took the scenic drive to Hershey Park, it was still only 20 minutes away so location is good. My 2 kids (ages 8 & 9) were happy with the indoor pool ( which is perfect because we prefer to go to Hershey in colder months.) we will be staying at this hotel again.

Mommy and me getaway

Would recommend Sun, Jun 29, 2014
Hotel was clean. Restaurant has great service and great prices. Breakfast is a must for 8.95 buffet and kids eat free. Couldn't get a late checkout and pool closed at night for a lightning storm were my only negatives.
