Editor’s Review of Hershey Lodge

How can anyone with kids go wrong visiting an entire town and hotel dedicated to chocolate? From the moment we entered Hershey Lodge, we were barraged with chocolate. Hershey chocolate and candy characters were available for meet and greets in the lobby, where the kids have their own check-in table and every guest is given a full-size Hershey Chocolate Bar.

Of course, the family-friendly lodge celebrates its official Hershey connection with a decor and activities built around the chocolatier. The family buffets tempt everyone with huge arrays of desserts built around chocolate. And while the Hershey Hotel is the original hotel for Hershey Park -- and more upscale -- the lodge is more budget-friendly and thoroughly more
... more family-friendly as it appears every child visiting Hershey is staying here. Kids are everywhere, which makes the location even better for families with kids who like to leave mom and dad poolside while they make new friends. less

This is Hershey so rooms are outfitted in chocolate browns with Hershey-themed artwork, of course! Standard guest rooms feature two queen or one king bed, but families may prefer one of the 15 the Sweetest Suites for more space and features. With 665 rooms and suites and a large layout, we often found ourselves turned around and losing our way.

All rooms are equipped with free wireless Internet, coffee makers, refrigerators, flat-screen TVs and free weekday newspaper delivery. On the in-room movie service provided, guests can watch the A&E Biography on Milton Hershey for free. Expect to find chocolates on your pillows every night, as well. (Although after all the daily chocolate we had to work hard to hide the chocolates at the end of the night. You could literally hear screaming children returning to the hotel at night overtired and over-sugared!)
