The hotel seems to be going through an updating transition. The bathroom was really nice, but the room needed some attention. The beds were comfortable, the wireless was ok, but yes, the walls are comically thin and you can hear everything going on on the other side. Parking is super expensive though - $20/night. The coffee in the lobby is...

We stayed two nights here, but not in a row. We drove from California, and left the car parked at the hotel (for a much smaller fee than parking in Times Square) and took the train to Penn Station. The staff was helpful through several glitches. They gave us a single king instead of two full, but they changed our...

I had to catch the train to Penn Station and stayed overnight for an early departure. The place was clean and the room service was great!

One-night stay the week of Christmas. The room was clean and small. Newly remodeled bathroom was modern. A short walk to the Capitol Building. (the Hershey part of this hotel name is misleading- Hershey is 30 min away). However, this was the worst hotel stay I have had in my life. The heating/cooling register was located directly next to the...

This place looks really nice once you walk inside but between the exorbitant fees for parking and the mice I'll never stay there again. We called down to the front desk when we heard a mouse in our room chewing through our things and the staff acted like we were crazy for calling and they hesitantly offered us another room....

This was day 1 of a Civil War fly-drive with my son to assist him in his American Civil War dissertation visiting the Civil War Museum, Gettysburg, Appomattox and the capital of the confederacy, Richmond.

Had a one-night stay here due to business and enjoyed my stay. Pros: Rooms are clean, freshly renovated and the staff was super friendly. Cons: Elevators are slow and heard construction outside early in the morning. Decent hotel gym. Usually stay at the Hilton Property across the street but will not add this spot to my Harrisburg hotel list! Thanks!
