We started off looking for a simple, affordable place to stay near Harrisburg or Hershey, but found this Doubletree -- still affordable, but offering much more than we anticipated. The kids loved the indoor pool and indoor water park, as well as the free magic show at night. There's also a crafts room and other activities throughout the day. The restaurant was able to handle a large to-go order quickly and offered a nice breakfast buffet the next morning. The suites met our sleeping arrangements perfectly. If we go during the summer next time, we could use the 9-hole golf course and/or basketball courts.
Unfortunately, only one person in our family of four slept well the night we were there. The heating/AC system sounded like it was on it's last legs, wheezing through the night. The air was incredible dry (I realize it's winter and the weather gets that way, but I don't remember it being as much of an issue in other hotels). And the TVs in rooms keep a very bright light on, even when the TV is turned off. The light is bright enough to illuminate the room, necessitating someone to either unplug the TV or cover it with something.
We'll definitely give the hotel another chance -- it's got too much going for it to allow one night's bad sleep to outweigh the positives.
