Editor’s Review of 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
... more 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. less

Woodside Cottages

Offering Hotel Hershey's finest accommodations, the Woodside Cottages border lush Pennsylvania woodlands, directly behind the hotel. These spacious cottages offer more room for your gang to spread out, along with some added privacy. Families have the option of staying in individual bedrooms, or for additional rooms and space, reserving the entire cottage. Four- and six-bedroom cottages are available, making its easy to accommodate larger families and family reunions.

Cottage guests enjoy private accommodation entrances, porches with rocking chairs, adjacent parking spaces and all of the services and amenities of the Hotel Hershey. Each cottage features double or king-size beds, chic dark wood furniture, flat screen TVs and DVD players. The cottages also features a refrigerator and elegant marble bathrooms with double sinks, a Jacuzzi and a separate shower, with my personal favorite, the modern rain shower head. Each cottage offers daily maid services as well as complimentary wireless Internet access.

In the center of each cottage a great room provides families with a perfect gathering spot, featuring a fireplace, microwave, refrigerator, flat screen TV and gorgeous French doors leading out to a porch.

Guests of the cottage share all of the same amenities and services of the Hotel Hershey, so families can enjoy complimentary transportation to and from Hershey attractions, babysitting services, supervised children's activities and more! Transportation is also provided throughout the hotel grounds making it easy for families lodging in the cottages to get around. Shuttle service runs regularly through the cottage complex so families won't have to walk to and from the hotel.
