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!
Many Little Hershey-o-Philes
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.
Stayed During Grand Opening of Hersheypark!
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.
We tried the room service after going to the park, and the food was some of the best I'd actually had from a room service order (I've stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels around the world - I was really surprised at how good my gnocchi was.) The only problem was - there was no place to put any of the food! I guess it's a business person's hotel, and they're okay with eating at the desk - we ended up pulling out the desk, and surrounding it with chairs! An unusual bonding experience, to say the least!
We called later to get a late checkout - and at first they said 12noon, however, once they saw I was a byrequest member - they extended it to 2pm! It pays to be a member of their club, and I'd stay here again.
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.

... damaged by the flood so it now has a marker to show the flood height.. The roadway was 11 feet above the river. Some of the bridges have been relocated to preserve them as they were getting too fragile to cope with the traffic load in their original position.
We went to the Tail Gate Cafe for lunch again at Colemanville bridge which was quite a pretty spot. There were no parking signs where we stopped as it was a turn around for vehicles going to a camping ground. A big F ...
Harrisburg is Pennsylvania's capital city, so I figured I’d make a visit to the capitol building while in the center of the state. According to the capitol’s website there are tours conducted on weekends as well as during the week. However, I found no way to get into the capitol building on Saturday without a security badge, so I didn’t manage to get to see the interior. If the interior is anywhere near ...
... such a great riding group. He emphasized what an acheivement we had all accomplished. Dutch Paul did a quick inpromto reply on behalf of all of us to thank Nick and Caroline for organising such an amazing trip. Caroline handed us all a little present - a route 66 fridge magnet - a nice little touch
Bed now with happy memories of a 8300 mile fantatstic journey!!
Angela - Ron loves you lots and can't wait to see you again!
... there was only one president ever from what was until the 1950s the second most populous U.S. state. Buchanan was the only unmarried president, so his niece Harriet served as first lady while he was in office. It’s been speculated that Buchanan may have been the first gay president, but I was a little shy about asking the guide about Buchanan’s sexuality on the house tour.
Buchanan is regarded as one of the poorest ...
My travel agent called me two weeks ago & asked if I had any travel plans. I answered honestly that I didn't. 48 hours later I had a random conversation with my mom about a River cruise in Europe and 36 hours after that I was booked on a trip to Europe! So I'm resurrecting the travel blog for one last chapter in my 2013 Grand World Voyage. This trip adds 3 new countries to my tally and brings me to 6 continents in ...
