The hotel balances elegance with approachable comforts for families with children. The steamboat feel was delightful and we particularly enjoyed feeding the ducks and Koi fish. The grounds were spacious and you never felt crowded. My 8 year old son loved the playground and pool, my teen daughter loved having a quiet place to ruminate outside by the duck pond. There is a lovely solarium with a pool/hot tub and also a gym on the third floor. Cookies and lemonade were available in the lobby every afternoon. If you want a pet - you can adopt a goldfish for your room for the duration of your stay! We enjoyed the farmer's breakfast one morning as a special treat - though there are a myriad of dining options nearby. We were also able to get discount tickets to Hershey Park (Dutch Wonderland were also available).
If you are at all sensitive to moisture/dampness, request a room on the second floor (the duck pond surrounds much of the 'boat'). I am highly allergic and had some minor sensitivity on our first night. However, Crystal at the front desk could not have been more accommodating or helpful and found us a room on the second floor for the remainder of our stay. Every staff person we met was friendly, polite and helpful but Crystal went above and beyond!
