Fantastic treasure in our own back yard! Was just looking to spend a quiet night away and unplug. We couldn't have picked a better place to be. Room very clean and well appointed. Staff very accommodating.

The staff at the Hotel Hershey made my trip memorable. This was my fist worry free, trouble free and complaint free vacation. The grounds and interior are beautiful. If I could give this 10+ stars I would. You will not be disappointed. They made me feel like family.

Although we have been here many times over the years, an extended weekend in February was the first time my wife and I stayed in the Woodland Cottages, several free-standing, four- to six-room buildings behind the main hotel. These are premium rooms in the warmer months when

For starters, my wife and I try to surprise each other every year for our Birthdays. We typically take a family trip, this time we opted to take a trip just for us and I must admit this was a wonderful trip. I have been to Hershey Park many times over the years but I never knew

The Hotel Hershey, or locally, just "The Hotel," is an icon in Central Pennsylvania. Beautiful grounds, beautiful rooms, nice banquet and food and beverage facilities. A lot of my friends will go there for getaway weekends -- not at all connected with the very nice Amusement

They are between 11 and 12 minutes apart. Yes all people can use the indoor pool at the hotel. The hotel is more fancy and more expensive. It also is closer 2 everything Hershey has to offer. It's right in the middle of it all.

Night and Day. Hotel is like sailing on the Queen Elizabeth and the Lodge more the Staten Island Ferry. IF you want to be spoiled and remember this trip for the rest of your life, stay at the hotel.

Thanks everyone. I did in fact call them after the first of six people who answered this question the same way. In case others are interested in the ball park pricing for the entire Cottage, we have reserved an entire 4 bedroom Cottage on a Saturday during Halloween at Hershey in October for a little over $2600 with tax. It makes each room roughly $620. I am sure the price will differ depending on time of year and day of the week - but that is the price for October weekend night.

"If staying in a cottage room, ask for one at the rear, off the street; the ones facing the woods have a better view."
"All of the rooms are great. Spend the extra money for the suites"
"I like the rooms in the original part of the Hotel"
"Ask for a room not next to the ice machine if you're a light sleeper."
"Not 222 which is directly across from the elevators"
