“Everything you need!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

We stayed here during a visit to HersheyPark this past holiday season. The staff was great and the rooms have been recently renovated. They were very nice and everything you needed. I am glad we got a two queen room as my sister got a one queen and it was quite a bit smaller. The breakfast was adequete and we were able to enjoy the pool and hot tub. The engineer was very friendly. Hospitality truly shined at this great hotel It sits back off of the main road which is great. You don't get any road noise! Nice and quiet! Thanks for a great stay!

Hello!

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your visit to the Hershey Harrisburg area! The holiday season is always so pretty in Hershey! Thank you for staying with us. I think it is a compliment that you thought our rooms were recently renovated. I find this shows how wonderful a job our maintenance and housekeeping teams do! Our hotel is nearing it's 5th birthday and we haven't been renovated yet! We are due in the next year or so. I am delighted that you enjoyed your time with us!

We look forward to welcoming you back this year!

Usually stay at Fairfield or Courtyard but decided this was the best value and it turned out to be a very good choice...close to restaurants...easy off/easy on interstates...clean room and friendly, helpful checkin...well noise insulated as well...decor is a bit different but the comfort level was great...definitely recommend it.

My wife, baby, and I were visiting family in Harrisburg for the Christmas holidays and needed amenities beyond what a typical hotel could provide, such as laundry, microwave, and dishwasher. We booked a studio unit and received the automatic upgrade to a one-bedroom as a Marriott Gold member. Having a baby in tow, though, a two-bedroom would be even nicer, so as to avoid waking him in the middle of the night and vice versa. My wife asked the hotel manager whether we could possibly upgrade to the two-bedroom, and they gave it to us FREE of charge. The two-bedroom was so spacious and well-appointed, with flat screen TVs in every bedroom as well as the living room. The property also had a nice size indoor swimming pool and hot tub, though we did not have time to make use of it. I cannot speak for the breakfasts, as we ate breakfast at our family's house each morning. Overall, a great experience and the one hotel my little family will use from now on when visiting Harrisburg.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade. You may get lucky like us and get one for free. Room 101 is a two-bedroom and w...

I was generally impressed with the hotel. Friendly staff. Great location - right across the street from the mall with numerous restaurants nearby. Nice rooms.

My only complaints are: mundane breakfast and doors that slam. I quickly tired of the limited breakfast and woke many nights to slamming doors that practically shook the walls. (they all slam naturally without any assistance). Of course, it would be nice if other guests were considerate enough at night to close their door softly, but that seems to be more fantasy than reality.

We stayed here with another couple while we visited Hershey Park. The location was approximately 10 miles from the park and was one of the more affordable hotels in the vicinity. We were pleasantly surprised with the range of amenities offered in each room, but our stay was short so we didn't use many of them. The decor is pleasing and inviting, and free coffee and tea in the lobby at all hours was appreciated. The breakfast options were pretty standard but good nonetheless. The only downside (which really isn't the fault of the hotel) was that we had hoped to use the whirlpool when we returned from the parks, but even at 10:30pm it was fully occupied by young children.

One additional note- check out Lancaster Brewing Company for dinner if you enjoy good food and good beer. It is located less than a mile from the hotel.

Thank you for catching up with us regarding your summer season visit! You hit our positioning dead on! We are just close enough to the park to be convenient and far enough to offer competitive rates! We are usually pretty busy on the weekends and the pool and hot tub stay full until 11pm for sure! We hope you can join us again in 2013. Have a wonderful holiday season!

I've stayed here on business trips several times now and will continue to select it as my home base while visiting Harrisburg. Clean, well-run, conveniently located, and very comfortable. There are many restaurants within walking distance and a mall nearby in case you forgot something. Also, FedEx Office is just across the street. The equipment in the fitness room is great, too. All around, it's a great value for the business traveler.

The freeway exit getting to this place will probably lower your expectations but don't let that discourage you. This is one of the better TownePlace Suites I've stayed in. The layout with elevators situated on two separate wings, an indoor pool, and a separate dining/waiting space give it an interesting yet sensible feel. The staff is superb! Special commendation goes out to Greg at the front desk who not only made me feel welcome after a long day of traveling, but was well versed on Marriott policy and made me feel like the Platinum elite member that I am. The location across from Harrisburg Mall is a very short walk away. All in all, it has been a great stay and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Chose the rooms toward the stairs if possible. WiFi is also stronger on the lower levels for some r...
