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

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
