“Nicest Hotel in Downtown Harrisburg”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

I travel annually to Harrisburg for business and this is by far the nicest accommodations in downtown area. The hotel is older and a little outdated, but the in house Starbucks and great room service makes up for it. The rooms are clean and nice, and other than issue with plumbing during my last stay I have no complaints regarding the rooms. There is also an indoor pool and very nice gym facility. It is also walking distance from any restaurant in downtown Harrisburg which is convenient. I would recommend to anyone traveling to the area to check out the downtown Harrisburg Hilton.

While bathrooms have been nicely updated rooms are older and showing wear. I have heard they are updating in the next year or so - but not up to par - loud heating cooling system. Staff is nice and professional

This hotel is just a short walk away from many resturants and bars. Not to mention a short drive to HersheyPark in PA. They are under renovation at the time of our stay but it was sightly noticable. Would stay here again anytime we go out to PA.

This a large inner city event property. Good sized rooms, clean and tastefully done. The restaurant off to the right was good.
There are two drawbacks in that the restaurants are closed on Sundays and it is a hike from the parking through the facility and down one level to the desk. Both minor points.

After years of going to this Hilton in Harrisburg, it is time for some updates. The room furniture is starting to show it's age, along with carpeting and paint. Although the halls and bars are very nice, the restaurant has very good food, above average breakfast buffet, (if gotten early). Met a very friendly bartender in bar-his name was Don.

Room Tip: Stay away from the rooms near the elevator, and try to get a room at end of hall.

Stayed at the Harrisburg Hilton August 2013. Location is great. A few steps from restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The hotel was clean and the decor was nice. Room was very clean and fairly modern. Pretty much what you would expect for a Hilton. It is a typical JHilton but the location is great. There isn't much to do in Harrisburg and if you don't have a car, the Hilton is your best choice.

Room Tip: Construction in the parking lot behind the hotel. Try to get a room at the front of the hotel.

Abejo,
Thank you for taking the time to share your comments about your recent stay with us. Pleas know that in addition to the many bars, restaurants, and nightclubs that you mentioned there are also a great number of other cultural and leisurely things to do within walking distance of the hotel. The State Museum of Pennsylvania, the Senators' ball park, and the Susquehanna river front are just a few of those items. I am pleased that you enjoyed the hotel with all of its distinctive amenities and look forward to welcoming you back again. If I can be of any assistance with suggestions of what to visit, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Enjoy today!

I found a great rate on Expedia and booked this hotel after a day of driving the Dutch Amish countryside. My wife & I really enjoyed staying at this property as it was well maintained and the bed was very comfortable. The dessert and breakfast on the concierge level were both very good.
