Awesome location, right in the heart of town within walking distance to many historic points of interest. The staff was wonderful, they helped us with picking out our tours and offered a wealth of information on what to do during our stay. The hotel is lovely, novel, and is itself a historic building. It is a step back in time... More

My wife and I stayed at the James Gettys Hotel this past weekend during our visit to Gettysburg. The hotel is right in the center of town, which means that all of the main attractions in the town are only a few minutes' drive away. The room we stayed in (the Sign of the Buck suite) was clean and comfortable.... More

We have had the good fortune of booking early and staying here every year - the cool thing is that we have seen the same staff in the last four years and it's kind of like coming home every year. The rooms are nicely appointed, different snacks and goodies are left every day (do hope you have the chance to... More

If you are visiting an historical location,what better way than to stay in an historic building with all of the modern conveniences? Right in the center of town the hotel is within walking distance to shops, restaurants, museums and the college. We are planning to stay ther for our next visit

My cousin and I booked this hotel not knowing what we would find. The pictures on the website looked wonderful but sometimes pictures don't live up to the hype. In this case, the pictures did not do it justice. The James Gettys Hotel is lovely, charming, historical, quiet, clean, and restful. It is in a great location with wonderful shops... More

My wife and I spent four nights at the beautiful and historic James Getty Hotel. The room was spacious and clean. We felt very much at home the staff was great. This would be a five star review except for the bed if you like a firm mattress than five stars it is. Do your self a favor and stay... More

Our family of four stayed in the Ziegler suite over Memorial Day weekend. The suite was perfect for our needs. It was spacious, comfortable and the trundle bed in the living room worked well for our two young children. The kitchenette allowed us to prepare meals in the room and the hotel provided baked goods, OJ and fruit every morning.... More

After an ill-fated trip hiking the Appalachian Trail, I decided to stay in Gettysburg. The James Gettys hotel had a great location and a vacancy, so, despite the price (I won't lie, it's on the expensive side for me!), I decided to go for it. I'm so glad I did! The staff greeted us warmly, as valued guests, and didn't... More

Went to Gettysburg to visit family. Chose not to drive as I am from UK and my relatives drive. The Hotel is in the centre of town, I was able to walk everywhere as its a small place. The Hotel provide you with a suite, bedroom, bathroom and sitting room with kitchenette. I was able to entertain my guests in... More

We enjoyed our stay at the James Getty Hotel very much. The history of the hotel itself is fascinating. It's been there since the early 1800's in one form or another. The location was perfect for exploring downtown. Once we parked the car, we didn't use it until the next morning when we had to leave. We had two rooms... More
