... the singing cows - Gabby, Harmony, and Olympia, at the tram ride. All smiles from Mr. Alex, with deep gratitude.
Dinner was prepared by Chef Pichin. Yum Yum chicken tenderloin with mixed green, supplement with Wegman cheese & spinach bread rolls and Pichin's pasta. We had Sweetie (hybrid of pomelo & grapefruit) and Ugly fruit (grapefruit like fruit) for healthy dessert. So thankful!!!
In six weeks joan and I will be leaving on a tour of the western United States. We expect to be gone for four to five months. I have planned the first two thousand miles and expect to be in Santa Fe, NM in two to three weeks. Once there we will spend time with our friend, Trish. Will then be planning on week to week basis. The coach comes out of storage on March 17, service and loading for the next week to so, then we are gone. On the road, ...

Here I continue to notice darker colors in the houses (dark greens and reds) giving it a sort of Bavarian feel. I also see a different sort of "half timber" house: in between each log is a layer of sealed stone... looks nice.
And with that I head on back south to continue my loop of Adams ...

We are now in Harrisburg at another Marriott. A lower end one but they are all pretty consistent. One difference is the quality of bedding (recall the glorious Rennaisance bedding) but still decent and they use Paul Mitchell shampoos at better ones and Panten at this one at least. The PM Tea ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PREMIER The Central Hotel & Conference Center Harrisburg
We stayed at this hotel to go to the Farm Complex. It took about 10 minutes drive time. The hotel was clean, smelled fresh, the beds were wonderful-1st time I ever stayed in a hotel and did not wake up with a sore back. Pool was immaculate. Front desk people were awesome. Our stay was very nice.
I stayed at this hotel over the New Year's holiday and absolutely loved it. The front desk staff was so friendly at check in and told me all about the festivities going on right in the hotel. Upon arrival to the room I found their beds some of the most comfortable I have ever slept in (their new matresses and bedding is to die for). The room was spacious and comfortable. We went to the Irish Pub for the evening and found the staff friendly and the food was great. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone visiting Harrisburg and Hershey, great for families as well as business travelers.
Stayed over the Thankgiving holiday with my family. Room was nice and clean with suprisingly comfortable large beds and pillows. Enjoyed a great Thanksgving meal and room service that evening. The large indoor pool and gameroom was perfect for our children. The hallways are a little dark and needing updating but the Irish Pub was terrific, enjoyed the guitar entertainment. We'll be back, maybe in the summer.
Solid mid level hotel
Big hotel, a bit dated, great pool, nice irish pub/restaurant. Decent enough price. Pretty good for a provincial town.
Old and Dingy
I stayed here as a last minute thing just passing through Harrisburg. I enjoy staying at Sheratons but this one really was disappointing. Organization at the front desk was incredibly bad. I found my room to be old and with a musty odor. I called down and they said there was nothing that could be done. There were light bulbs burnt out and the a/c was very loud. I slept horribly due to the sound of running water through pipes in my ceiling!. I definitely would not recommend staying here. Stay at the Hilton downtown. It is great and worth the few extra dollars.
Our Girl Scout group spent a day at Hershey Park and after a long day wanted a place for the girls to relax and swim. Originally, we booked our stay at the Comfort Inn, but based on comments from other reviewers, we decided to cancel that and stay at the 4 Points Sheraton. This prooved to be a wise decision!
Perfect for our purposes.
We were here with a group of teenage fast-pitch softball players and families for a tournament. Although rooms were a little spread out we were all able to run around to which ever room we needed to be at. Some of the rooms seemed to have air condioners that didn't work to well. However ours worked fine and we all slept comfortably on that wonderful bed! The pub in the hotel was helpful when we had pizza delivered for the group and they gave us plates and napkins when the pizza place forgot them. Girls had a great time in the indoor pool after playing softball in the heat all day. I did feel sorry for the people that had rooms overlooking the pool. Lot's of noise until it closed at 10:00pm.
When traveling with our children, we will usually ask for a Junior Suite so parents and children have seperate rooms. The Junior Suite we were given was large. The living area had a pull out couch and a 6 person conference table with sliding doors out onto the pool deck. There were french doors adjoing to the king bedroom. The bathroom was terribly small. The adjacent dressing area had very poor lighting and could have used seating. The furniture was newer and was nice looking. The living area was large but dwarfed due to the conference table. The microwave was dirty and the small refridgerator rattled. We asked for a roll away bed and it was brought immediately. It was a comfortable, full size twin. We just slid the conference table against the wall to accomodate the roll away. My largest complaint is that all Suites open onto the pool area. Ours was inconviently located right next to the jaccuzzi on the first floor. Our room reaked of chlorine. After sleeping there our first night we all had red, raw throats in the morning. The staff let me check out suites on the higher floors, but since opening to the pool, all smelled of chlorine. We were then down graded to a standard room with 2 queen beds. Nothing to write home about.
Could have been better...
for the price. Just hope you don't get a room surrounding the pool or lobby, unless of course you like to hear the sounds of screaming kids and highschool seniors at all hours of the night. Management was not accomodating to large group needs for extending check-out by one hour due to tournament time changes. $$$. The hotel's restaurant was good and not too pricey, either. No exhaust fans in the bathroom. It's time to get with the program and make some upgrades. The bed was phenomenal!
Good locationb but average room for the price
We just got back from our Hershey vacation and stayed here. It is in a very good central location (about 10-15 minutes to Harrisburg and Hershey), and close to the highway (but you really do not hear the noise in the room). The room, though, was an average, typical hotel room, and really not worth the amount we paid ($110) but was one of the less expensive in the area. We really liked the location, though, and would probably stay here again, though hopefully could find a coupon or something for a better rate.
