“LOVED IT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

We recently stayed at the Hotel Hershey and loved it! The place is absolutely beautiful, the pool is perfect for kids (smaller ones as it only goes up to 4 feet), and the food was great! The rooms are a bit dated in decor, but overal the experience was so great that we decided to stay another day! Pricey but great!

A lovely hotel and resort with friendly, helpful staff. In addition to the spa and golf it has Hershey Park with wonderful roller coasters of all levels from small children to an old wooden coaster to the most modern and death defying coaster. I think there are at least 7 roller coasters! The water park (part of the amusement park) is also fun. They also have the lovely Hershey Gardens and the "almost too much" candy supermarket "Chocolate World"!

I was pleasantly surprised with the beautiful grounds, size of the rooms and spacious pool area(with slides and cabanas). Everything was spotless, nicely decorated and well maintained. There is also a part of the hotel that is original and has been beautifully restored. The park was also incredibly clean. I would highly recommend staying here!

Our second time at the Hotel Hershey did not disappoint.
The hotel is opulent without being stuffy and the staff - from the bellmen to the front desk are the friendliest around.
You can't walk down the hall without someone from the hotel saying hello or good morning.
The hotel's rooms are gorgeous and the hotel itself offers four restaurants so you don't ever have to leave the grounds for a great meal.
The hotel also offers an indoor pool and a great outdoor pool with poolside service.
The shuttle to Hershey Park runs every 20 minutes so there's hardly a wait.
We stayed three days and nights and will probably be back next year.
Top notch.

You just can't go wrong with the Hotel Hershey! This was our second stay and this time we stayed an extra night so that we would simply have some time to relax and enjoy the hotel amenities. As a family, it really couldn't be any better. The kids love the pool, with water slides that are just the right size (not toddler-scale, but not daredevil-scale either) and as a parent, I enjoy sipping pina coladas poolside. The outdoor recreation area, the Chocolate bingo, and the year-round skating rink add to the fun. For dining we've tried Harvest, Trevi 5, The Iberian Lounge, and Room Service. In all cases, the food and the service were excellent. Trevi 5 was a nice surprise, since it wasn't on our "to do" list, but we decided to try it. We were a bit wary, since the menu is limited, but everyone loved their meal and we will definitely be going back.
One final word about the wonderful staff, who were all friendly, courteous & helpful. A special thanks to our housekeeper Sophy & our friend in the recreation areas, Jack (he makes the best tie-dyed t-shirts!). See you next summer!

We have been to Hershey Park twice before and enjoyed the amusement park. However staying at Hotel Hershey was a totally different experience. Initially we felt like we were splurging and spending too much money to go to an amusement park, but adding a night to enjoy the hotel was SO worth it! We felt as if we were at an exclusive resort and treated as nicely poolside asking for a glass of water as we were at the Circular Dining Room having an adult only dinner. The staff could not be more accommodating. Their slogan, "Elegance without the Pretense" is exactly what they strive for. The perfect family place that still lets you feel like an adult. We were rained out of our day at the park and the concierge offered to send a driver to get us rain tickets to enjoy at the park any day we chose...check in time was at 4pm, but we were sent a message to let us know our room was ready at 11:30am!! I could go on...

I can't say enough good about this hotel. None can compare...they have it right from the food to the staff to the entertainment. No one could be disappointed. This place is clean and the hotel is world class. Both pools are fun and clean. Shuttle buses to Chocolate World and the park are wonderful. This is the place to go with family. During the busy season, don't forget to make reservations at the restaurants.

Room Tip: I have only stayed at the Hershey Hotel once so I don't have a favorite room but the one I had w...
