About Hotel Hershey

Hotel Hershey is about a five-minute drive to the Hersheypark -- but you don't need your car thanks to a free shuttle bus that runs every 10 to 15 minutes. The original hotel, built more than 75 years ago, has since expanded to 230 guest rooms. Its Mediterranean style, indoor and outdoor pools, and reflecting pools, is grander and more elegant than Hershey Lodge.

Hotel Hershey unveiled its $67 million renovation and expansion known as "The Grand Expansion" in 2009 to celebrate the Hotel's 75th anniversary in 2008. This expansion included the introduction of 10 cottages that house the Hotel's most premium room offerings; construction of a new restaurant, Harvest, which focuses on American cuisine; the addition of a recreation campus that features a full aquatic facility, year-round ice-skating rink and a variety of other offerings; improvements to the front exterior to allow for a more satisfying sense of arrival; renovation of the check-in lobby; and the addition of seven boutique shops that all create a more luxurious resort experience.

The multi-pool swimming complex with an infinity-edge pool, a new restaurant, and 10 new guest cottages create a wonderful new addition to the Hotel, and an even sweeter experience expecially for mult-generational travel.

The staff is lovely and the hotel is pretty, but that's about it.

I could NOT have one decent night sleep on their HORRIBLY UNCOMFORTABLE MATTRESSES!! Plus it was dry, stuffy and too warm in the room. This is supposed to be a vacation where I can actually get some REST!!!! As soon as I get home I will need to make and appt. with a chiropractor and I'm not kidding. It would be nice if the hotel would have splurged for a ... read more
