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

The hotel is quaint and small - perfect for us. It is in the center of the main part of old town Gettysburg, minutes from the College. Our suite seemed spacious. The sitting room had a full refrigerator, 2 burner stove, microwave, coffee maker and small table. Plenty of room to sit and read or watch TV. The bed was... More

This small hotel located in the heart of the downtown area is very nice. Beware that It can be noisy on a Saturday night when the whole town is partying but the service and ambiance are marvelous. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the homemade breakfast goodies that are left in your refrigerator the night before are wonderful.

My husband and I spent one night in the Holtzworth Livery Suite at the James Gettys Hotel. When we arrived we parked in the bay outside the hotel to unload our cases. We were then given a special parking ticket to display in our car and parked in the car park which is at the back of the hotel. The... More

This was our second stay at the James Getty Hotel. We absolutely loved it! The staff is attentive, informative and extremely friendly! Trisha booked a tour of the battle fields, and did an outstanding job. The Lord Nelson suite is our favorite, and did not disappoint. Well appointed, clean and relaxing. The cheese and fruit tray upon arrival and the... More

We stayed in the Blue Tearoom Suite last week. The suite was clean and well-appointed. The location so near to the town square was ideal. Adjacent off-street parking is a plus for a downtown location. We enjoyed the hotel, and we recommend you give it serious consideration.

Delightful, peaceful 3-night stay. Offers the comforts of home with many special touches and close to great dining choices. Special treats at the end of the day and delicious homemade bread and muffins at breakfast. Would put it on my "must return" list.

The employees of this hotel are just fabulous. They are super friendly and helpful. The muffins and breads are fresh and delicious and the coffee is from the Ragged Edge... More
