“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

This is great place to stay! My room was spotless. Nicely decorated. Amenities such as homebaked goods and fruit brought to your room each evening for b'fast the next day and cookies brought during the day. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again. Within walking distance for shops and pubs/restaurants.

Stayed March 2014, travelled with friends

We had a great 2 day stay at the James Getty. DH, son and I arrived around dinner time and were checked in quickly with yummy cookies and bread awaiting us. Had dinner at Blue and Grey first night, Dobbins second night. Lord Nelson's room was by comfortable and quiet. Good fit for our family. Perfect location for walking downtown and then touring battlefield. I would recommend.

The James Gettys Hotel was perfect in every way. The room was absolutely adorable, the breakfasts were great and the staff was so friendly. You couldn't ask for a better location- within walking distance of almost everything and less than 10 minutes from Gettysburg visitors center. There was some fantastic food nearby, and A&A shop down the street was darling. As my husband would confirm, I am a clean freak and don't usually feel comfortable in hotels. However, this room was so clean, even I was happy. This trip was with a girlfriend, but I'm hoping to go back with my husband soon, and would definitely stay here!

Thank you so, so much for your review!

I think we all feel as though we have earned a badge of honor by having our housekeeping efforts praised by a self-proclaimed clean freak!!! I'm sure I can speak for the rest of the staff when I say that we all like to feel comfortable on our own travels and want to extend the same confidence-in-comfort to our guests.

We hope to see you and your family soon!

Sincerely,
Catriona

This was a second trip to The James Gettys for my husband and I, but my daughter LOVES history too so we brought her for a birthday weekend treat. The rooms are very comfortable, cozy, and clean. She loved her day bed in the living space the the kitchen area each time is a nice bonus. The coffee and tea as well as the evening snacks and continental breakfasts were fabulous and fresh. We also enjoyed the hotel shaped chocolates! The hotel is in the center of town within walking distance of many attractions and restaraunts, as well as a short drive to the battlefield.

My husband and I stayed two nights the second weekend in March at the James Gettys in the Majestic Suite, a Christmas gtift from our daughter and her guy. We had a wonderful stay, amazing accomodations, fresh, lovely continental breakfast and amazing staff. The Majestic Suite truly lives up to its namem we only wish we could have stayed longer. Garry Owen Irish Pub down the street and the Dobbin House are a must for meals. The Gettysburg Battlefield Museum and Cycloram are amazing as well as a visit to the Eisenhower Home is a must.

Room Tip: The Majestic Suite is the largest the James Gettys offers and is well worth it if you are going to h...

The perfect weekend away hotel and perhaps the perfect hotel for a week away as well. Our suite had cooking, refrigerator, and cosy comfort for two. All enhanced by the delightful complimentary fresh baked goods, made in the kitchen on the first floor. We will stay here again!

My wife and I stayed here Friday and Saturday 2/21 and 2/22. The hotel is in an excellent location in downtown Gettysburg. There are plenty of restaurants, shopping and attractions to choose from in walking distance. We stayed in the John Troxell suite facing the street. This suite had a spacious sitting area with kitchen stocked with coffee and tea and full size refrigerator. The complimentary snacks of cheese, muffins, bread, fruit, cookies and OJ were all excellent. The suite also had a comfortable bedroom. The staff were very helpful and courteous. The hotel also has a convenient parking area behind the building. The hotel also provides WIFI and cable.

Room Tip: Room facing the street have some street noise
