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.

... We had a weird tasting before our meal, all the things they use to make in the early days. I tried the six tastings, I have eaten everything from cheese made inside dead pigs guts, marrow from the pigs trotter, all the organs, birch beer, I forget all the others. I gagged a few times but was determined to try it all. If I wake up dead tomorrow I will know I have been poisoned. Was the best fun though, a lot of the guys chickened out before us ...
Our driver and friend, Bill Krouse, picked us up at home and drove us to Dulles Airport in Virginia. We left home about 2:30 pm and arrived at Dulles Airport at about 5:00 pm. The traffic wasn't too bad. We ate dinner at Old Dominion Brewing Company in the airport. The next stop is ...
... t accelerating. It was almost as though we were out of gas even though we had just filled up. We got across the bridge and pulled into a parking lot. The Westy was not really working properly so we found a garage that knows Westys and gave them a call. They were closing in 15 minutes but said they would wait for us to bring it over and see if it was a quick fix. We got the car working and started driving there. With about 1km left to drive the car ...
People kept telling us to visit the Capital Building. It opened in 1906 and President Roosevelt stated it was " the handsomest Capital I have ever seen." It really is a beautiful building and you get to take a guided tour if you like. We took the tour to find out more about the history of the building and it really was worth it.

... the rainbow of fall hues. We talk about our dreams, aspirations and struggles. Tim is very skilled and knowledgeable in many aspects of recording, performing and songwriting, and being around him inspires me to think of what I need to do to take my music to the next level...
... Not that wandering around the world playing music on park benches isn't inspiring enough...
Finally we reach Shippensburg Rd where we parked the car, and call it a day.
