As the title implies I was here for a meeting, one we hold each year at this time, so I have some prior experience with the property. It's a nice place, with good facilities for group meetings and a responsive staff. The guest rooms are large and comfortable with good bedding and, always appreciated, bathroom sinks and counters at 21st... More

The facility is convenient for travel all around Harrisburg, and only a 20 minute ride to the Airport in Harrisburg. Facility was great and staff extremely friendly, courteous, helpful. The only slight prtoblem was the traffic noise probably because we are used to almost complete silence. A terrific faciity and a great staff.

This hotel was a surprise. It was much more upscale than we thought a Best Western would be and was a good value for the property. While the walls were a little thin and the bathroom on the smaller side, I would still rate this a five given the quality vs. what you should get for that price. Free tea... More

Extremely well appointed hotel. Rooms very clean, updated (brand new showers which were beautiful), some of the most comfortable pillows I ever laid my head on, and friendly helpful staff. Beautiful, updated banquet facilities. Ate in the Irish Pub, great food and service, reasonably priced. Conveniently located to many attractions and shops. Was snowing when I was there and was...

My girlfriend and I discovered this Best Western Premier property while searching for cheap places to stay near Hershey and Harrisburg, and scored a good deal online. We had no idea what a great deal it would turn out to be! We stayed 3 nights in the Winter and had a magical and splendid time. The hotel staff is very... More

Four of us (2 couples) traveled to Harrisburg to see the rodeo finals. I had tried a different Best Western nearby first, but the staff did not know anything about the farm show/rodeo discount and there was no manager available. The Best Western Premier was an excellent! It was clean, great staff, great restaurant. We had stayed at another Best... More

For under $100, this was an exceptional hotel with high standards. The conference centers looked amazing and the room was not lacking in anyway. The only complaint is that the TV signal was weak (only windy outside) and it was hard to watch. Also, being from the Midwest, we are used to free breakfast with a stay rather than an... More

This hotel had very comfortable beds, exceptional staff, ideal location east of downtown Harrisburg. I loved the mattress and 'quiet' policy after 10:00pm. We highly recommend this hotel in Harrisburg PA. Also, very close to good shopping malls and Gettysburg, PA. We loved the National Civil War Museum too...in Harrisburg, PA.

Rooms are outdated. Bathroom dirty. Vent in bathroom was hanging down, shower didn't work, and thermostat was all over the place. Wouldn't recommend especially if you are traveling with children. Not clean and as I mentioned it was cold, hot, cold, hot etc.

I stayed recently for one night on a business trip and thought this was a nice place. The front desk staff were very helpful and kind. One of them even loaned me an umbrella so I wouldn't get soaked traveling to my meeting. There is no continental breakfast here, only coffee, however if you are staying at the hotel there... More
