... imagine that Christmas time here becomes a pilgrims paradise. The only 'Stars' here in Bethlehem are the large one on the Main Street, and several others on buildings and an illuminated one above the town, although lots of real stars have stayed at this hotel, including Bob Dylan, Tony Bennett, Ray Charles, James Taylor and many others. We had a great brunch at the hotel. It attracts guests from miles around every ...
... so there must be something in their simplicity that leans towards "capitalism". None the less, very polite people and one amish stall holder welcomed her photo being taken (hope she didn't expect a tip). Nah! Life is simple! Tomorrow will explore the amish farms and lifestyle so should be very interesting. John is wondering if they have a golf course or a wine shop doing business?? John is also looking forward to Intercourse (more ...
If you build it they will come. If you plant it, it will grow. The Amish planted the fields and the crops were going. It was breath taking to smell fresh air each morning. Our stay in Lancaster and the Budget Host Inn & Suites was just excellent. The hotel was clean and close to everything. The Caribbean Indoor Waterpark was attached ...
... men died! Gettysburg is a quaint little place with lots of houses like dollshpuses! We travelled to Harrisburg and when I saw 'HERSHEY' I thought now is that THE Hershey as in Chocolate????? YES IT IS!!!! Omg!!! We rolled into town and here was this biggest amusement park and six roller coaster rides the biggest I have ever seen!!! Driving around we saw the chimneys of the chocolate factory but it was 6pm too late it was closed!!! So ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Harrisburg-Hershey
Loved this Hotel
What a beautiful hotel! From the moment we checked in, the service was head and shoulders above other resorts we've stayed at in Hershey (this includes the Hershey Lodge). The room was spotless. I will definitely stay at this hotel the next time I visit Hershey!
My husband and I were passing through Harrisburg, PA on our way to and from points east. We were disappointed with the hotel we stayed in on the way east, so we went to check out the Wyndham Harrisburg-Hershey in order to make reservations for our trip home. It was a Sunday morning and the "joint was jumpin'" with many children running around, eating at the restaurant, enjoying the indoor/outdoor pool, etc. We had a different experience when we returned to the hotel for our stay on a Monday night. We arrived at the hotel after 11 p.m., checked into our nicely appointed, quiet room on the 9th floor then returned to the bar on the main floor of the hotel where we were able to sit in the non-smoking section and enjoy martinis. We wished we could stay longer at this hotel, as the lounge chairs by the pool looked very inviting and we found our room comfortable with nice touches like a thick rug in the bathroom, a bathrobe hanging in the closet and a bottle of wine greeting us upon arrival. We might not have stayed at this hotel because the price was over what I was hoping to pay, but when we learned that we could reduce our rate by $34 dollars by "flashing" our Sam's Club membership card, we were sold.
We got in to the Wyndham a few hours early, but were originally given a room on the second floor (which you had to go downstairs to get too!), however - there was a problem, it seems that there was a cheerleader competition going on at the Park the next day, and we were surrounded. I could of dealt with that, I pricelined the hotel, and have come to expect '2nd class status' with that, but my being asthmatic and the girls running perms, my distress began as soon as I got to the room. I called, and requested another, and we were moved - to the much quieter 8th floor.
Nice room, nothing else
We stayed here a total of 5 nights, the room was clean, bathroom was very small. We had several pieces of luggage, but were never offered any help at check-in, nor did they have anyone available at check-out. Luckily we had booked thru Hotwire and received a reduced rate. If we had to pay the full amount for a room that had no amenities we would have been disappointed. No free internet, no breakfast of any type, no service.
Comfy, luxurious, fun pool. Highly Recommended!
This hotel is a wonderful. The rooms are first class with comfy beds and luxurious linens. Also very quiet even for light sleepers like myself.
The staff was unobtrusive, yet warm and helpful. They were happy to give us directions to many attractions and advice on where to shop!
The indoor-outdoor pool is really neat with a swim-under wall. My only mild complaint is that the pool was always crowded. It seems they have a swim club there for area residents.
Easy drive to Hershey and much less expensive than places closer to the park. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the area.
We are going to stay there again this year and take advantage of the free night before option you get when you have pre-purchased Park tickets.
Great Place to Stay
After driving down to this hotel, from New York, we we extremely exhausted and ready to find a comfortable place to sleep. Even though we arrived rather late, the staff was warm and inviting and our room was perfect. It was large and very comfortable. A welcome gift was waiting on the bed for us, and a personal note from the management. I was extremely impresses with the service given to us by all levels of the staff. I would stay here again in a minute. This is a great hotel for the price and I recommend it to anyone in the area.
Good choice for Hershey
We decided to take a trip to Hershey Park with the kids this summer and had planned on staying at the Hershey Hotel or Lodge. After researching on line we received in the mail a great offer to stay at the Wyndham. We were very happily suprised! The pool was a lot of fun(1/2 inside and 1/2 outside). The rooms were very clean and we were very close to Hershey. Discount tickets to the park were at a Giant Supermarket down the street and were very helpful to not have to wait in line at the park. overall-great choice for the money
Great Hotel.. Large king size room
Excellent deal was had on this hotel.. Prior years we stayed at the Howard Johnsons.. This was definetly three steps up! Our king bed had a down comforter.. Corner room was very large with a pull out sofa. We had a teenager, and 2 young children and still had plenty of room. Indoor/outdoor pool was very nice .
Wyndham Hotel, Harrisburg Nice Place
Stayed at the Wyndham in Harrisburg 15min from Hershey Park, this deal is well worth looking into. The park very pricey, the hotel nice.
Formerly Marriott Harrisburg
Considering the lack of salesmans hotel choices (full service) in the area this place is pretty good.
Comfortable friendly bar serving a bar menu and the restaurant (adjoining) menu.
Renovated since Wyndham took over - better staff attitude now than in the declining days of the Marriott ownership. Noisy ice machines in the middle of each hallway. Join the "Wyndham by request" program - they really take care of their guests - airline miles but no hotel points program. This hotel is minutes from the Harrisburg airport - centrally located for Lancaster, Gettysburg, York and Northern Baltimore sales calls.
