The Hotel Hershey is a great place to stay, especially if you're staying in a Woodside Cottage. The cottages are very private, overlook a nice wooded area, have waterfall showers (reason enough to stay!) and fireplaces, and even have front porches with rocking chairs. Staying at a cottage, you would have no idea that you are just a mile from an amusement park. The hotel also offers very convenient bus service to and from Hersheypark. The only thing I would change about the hotel is I would prefer that there be at least one (or two) casual dining options on property. Still, the experience at The Hotel Hershey is top notch!
