“I like this hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I agree with some of the other reviewers that this property can show it's age, especially in the rooms. I stayed here in 2012 for the Keystone Conference and I definitely could see the wear. This year, it seemed a little cleaner and kept up. Looking at the other reviews, it does seem that missteps occur here frequently. I had one of my own. The day I checked in, I was in my room when another guest opened my door with a room key. Luckily I wasn't doing anything I wouldn't want my mother to see, but the woman and I were both a little surprised. The staff called me to make sure that I wasn't upset and gave me club room privileges for the trouble. The club room is very nice and I might even pay for it when I go to the conference next year. I think the staff is extremely friendly and I like the health center. Overall, I'd say even if mistakes happen, the staff seems to try very hard to make everyone feel welcome and satisfied.

First let me begin by saying the on-site restaurant the Dog and Pony- Sharon, the host and hostess and the DJ were the highlight of our stay. They were able to safely handle my daughter and my Celiac disease and dairy intolerance. The food was wonderful, service prompt and friendly and we ate here every evening of our stay. The rooms had so definite issues. Our room had no functioning heater when we arrived and a technician spent an hour rewiring to make sure the relays were reading the wall thermostat as they were retro-fitted. Secondly, towels and washcloths seemed to in short supply and we needed to call house-keeping daily about this dilemma. Third, we needed to call house-keeping more than once about making the beds while we were out. We left by 7-7:30 and returned well after 8pm leaving ample time for room clean-up. Fourthly, the last night of our stay we added a second room of guests. Their phone did not work, they had non-functioning outlets, a TV which did not function and their second bed was not set-up with blankets, sheets or pillows. I made reservations well in advance with the names and number of people staying in each room. Finally and most importantly, Dan L the on-site manager at the time of our questions was rude and would not listen to our requests for explanation as to why my oldest daughters credit card and my credit card had both been charged for our single room. Hmmm. Enter Jeff, and Dhaval who were proficient at handling the extraneous charges as well as re-training the staff member. The facility is lovely and it is unfortunate we had such blatant faux pas' occur on an otherwise wonderful trip. We are unsure whether we will stay here next year when we return to take part in the Farm Show Event we attended this year.

One of the major purposes of online reviews is to highlight areas of potential improvement. We will make sure to use this review as a learning experience and training tool.

This is overall a good hotel. Great service, Great dining, love the amenities. It is very close to the Harrisburg mall and a short drive to downtown Harrisburg. the hotel is clean , neat , and inviting.

The "Dog and Pony" restaurant was the highlight. Great service, Great food all around.

My only issue is that the rooms show some wear and tear especially in the bathrooms.

In my room the shower spout did not seem firmly attached to the wall and would undulate when i turned on the shower. The condition of the tile and the walls in the bathroom could use some "refreshing" (cracked tiles in shower, rust on the metal fire suppression system spots, etc).

As long as you can overlook the "little" things at an aging property you should be ok. Most business travelers won't mind / won't notice.

We recently drove from the Boston area to Columbus Ohio for a family funeral. As we didn't want to drive straight through and we are SPG members, we decided to use our points and stay at this hotel. At a time when we very much needed it, the friendliness and excellent service turned this part of our trip into a most pleasant experience. The rooms were typical of Sheraton and quite pleasant. They were not very busy that night, so we ate in their Dog and Pony Bar area. The food was ample and excellent, and the bar area was cozy and quiet, even though several TV's were showing various sports. WE tried a new wine there, called Apothic Red, and it was so good we have been ordering it frequently when we see it other places. Their buffet breakfast was very good, with both food and value excellent. We have paid $30pp for a breakfast buffet at a Westin that wasn't nearly as good.

It was so pleasant that we booked it again for our trip home. Although we didn't use them, we investigated their pool and fitness areas and were impressed by their quality and interesting setup.

There are activities near by, e.g Hershey, that would be interesting given more time.

We definitely would recommend this hotel for any purpose.

You expect that Sheraton will do a good job -- especially for business travelers who sometimes don't have a choice of hotels due to company policy. Fortunately, after a long, long week of endless meetings, every evening was ended with the wonderful smiling face of Cathy in the Dog & Pony. I've never had the experience of being greeted at the door by name! Seriously!? That wasn't because we made fools of ourselves the night before in the bar....this is an employee who actually cares if her customers are well cared for and enjoy themselves. Wow. I don't get to Harrisburg often and that's actually a shame. Cathy and her manager made my week much nicer. Was the room clean? Yes. Was it quiet? Yes. Who cares... Cathy took care of me.

that there was such a great stay in Harrisburg, PA? I'm an SPG member, and have stayed at Starwood hotels (literally) all over the world, and this was among my best stays. We arrived (very) early for our reservation and were immediately given an upgraded room on the Club Floor even though we had booked a standard room. It goes without saying that your room should be clean, quiet, and comfortable, and the Sheraton Harrisburg-Hershey certainly did not disappoint. The staff was welcoming and helpful in giving us directions, and check-in and checkout were a breeze. If we're ever up that way again, Sheraton Harrisburg-hershey is the only hotel we'll look at.
