City Suite Room - From the moment of check-in to the three days we stayed, out stay was perfect. Our room overlooked Chambersburg St. The management brought in a roll away for our teenage son and made the rooms very comfortable. Absolutely LOVED the fresh muffins, bread and OJ waiting for us each day in our room. Made our stay... More

We travel with little more planning than picking a spot on the map we might have heard about, and driving there. In the Civil War-battlefield site of Gettysburg, PA, we followed our nose to the center of town and pulled into a parking space on busy Chambersburg Street, lined restaurants and shops. On our cell phones, we checked out internet... More

I stayed here for a long weekend. Gettysburg is a charming city and this hotel was right off the square within walking distance of everything. I really enjoyed the baked goods left in my room each night. I never heard or saw any other guests but I believe the hotel was sold out. I would definitely stay here again.

This place is so awesome and the best place to stay when you visit Gettysburg! It was my husband's birthday and the staff did everything they could to make it perfect!! At my request they put balloons and a birthday banner in the room so it was waiting for us and he was very surprised :-). Can't say enough about... More

My wife and I love to stay at James Getty Hotel. We are not Civil War buffs though we enjoy the history. James Getty provides a great place, parking, shops and restaurants within walking distance. Their staff is incredible. We feel like guests in the home of good friends. We just spent our 39th anniversary there and had an incredible... More

Enjoyed a great weekend here as part of my husbands business party. Loved the Ghost tour we took as well as many of the local shops. What a great getaway and the folks at this hotel were so pleasant. Definitely would return for another mini vacation!!!

The experience was outstanding. The hotel had access to all downtown attractions, secure parking and the room was wonderfully appointed. We were able to walk to many sites, shop and dine with ease. Choosing the James Gettys Hotel was a stroke of luck for us. It could not have been better!

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
