This was my third stay at the Gettysburg Hotel (beginning in 1994). This most recent trip was with my husband and sons; we were doing area college tours including Gettysburg College. I love the most recent renovations. The common areas are beautiful (although my boys miss the breakfast room where they had fun making their own waffles several years ago). Our room was chic; comparable to any of the upscale boutique hotels I favor in New York, DC, Boston. You cannot beat the parking; location and general amenities. Staff was welcoming and helpful.

Room Tip: I have stayed in different parts of the hotel on each of my visits. All rooms were equally good.

My husband and I have stayed here several times; the last time was in August. While the renovations are lovely the staff is not very welcoming, the prices have increased and they no longer offer a military discount on weekends. We like staying in Lincoln square since we are close to the action but will be staying at the bed and breakfasts that are also located in the square from now on. They are friendlier, more historic, and offer great rates.

I travel to Gettysburg 3 or 4 times a year. This is the only hotel I stay in now. Hotel is recently renovated, and located in the perfect place to walk to most shopping and restaurants. A large parking lot is located behind the hotel with very reasonable rates.

This hotel is beautiful and I love just thinking of the history that was here before the fire burnt down the original one. The rooms were specious and our room overlooked Lincoln square to which the only down fall came from, which was the road traffic all night but we understand people gotta drive. The restaurant was decent a tad over priced but that's what you get in a hotel. Overall we will defiantly stay her again

Beautiful re fashioned hotel. All staff were friendly especially carrie,Anglophile, on reception. Rooms were very comfortable as we're communal areas. Restaurant reasonably priced. There is an in house registered town guide to do the town attractions re civil war. Well worth going on the tour. Would recommend this hotel

Located in the center of Gettysburg, this hotel is worth a visit even if you don't stay there. The rooms are beautiful and the beds are very comfortable,. The staff is efficient and helpful. The restaurant is very good as well.

The Gettysburg hotel, built in the late 1700's is an ideal place to stay during a Gettysburg getaway.

The building has been recently renovated and does not show its age at all, inside or out. Rooms are fairly spacious (We had a king suite with fireplace) plenty of room and nice sized batrhroom as well. We even had a jacuzzi tub.

The location is awesome in terms of the distance to most attractions. You are within walking distance of most town attractions including the shops, restaurants, ghost tours and nationa cemetary.

There is a very nice restuarant in the hotel as well for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Parking is convenient.

Room price was a bit steep at $300.00 per night but it was a Saturday night in the middle of the fall season and Halloween Ghost attractions.

Funny to say, the best thing about this hotel is the location, it is also the worst thing.

Do not expect to sleep late or go to bed early, being centrally located in the middle of the town, their are pubs, bars and reatuarnats open very late and you will hear most of the activity outside.

The town also has a great deal of car and truck traffic which makes for heavy noise most of the day.

If you stay in the front of the hotel, you will hear a great deal of noise. Rear rooms are likely quiter.

Overall, great place, friendly staff and centrally located.

Room Tip: Ask for room in rear if you are a light sleeper.
