“Great Visit, We will come back.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

My Husband and I traveled to Gettysburg for a quick overnight trip on my Birthday. We picked the James Getty Hotel due to its location. The hotel is very clean and the managers were very nice and knowledgeable. The breakfast basket of lemon bread and muffin's was a nice way to greet the morning, perfect with a cup of coffee. We will be returning to Gettysburg and plan on staying here again.

Wow
A great place seriously
Stayed in city hotel suite which was large two room suite and really what you want after a day touring.
B'fast is continental ?? With carbs served the evening before- so if you want b'fast don't count on this!
That being said the staff is great
Elevator is v nice
Free parking is a plus
Would definitely come again

Room Tip: Choose room on line 318 was great and large

Hello!

Thank you for your review, and for spending your anniversary getaway at the James Gettys! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the Union Hotel Suite and plan to try another suite in the future! Each suite has a different decor and furnishings, but they are all wonderfully comfortable.

I look forward to seeing you again soon and seeing which suite you choose next!

Our family highly recommends the James Getty's Hotel in Gettysburg. We are a military family of four, with infant twins, coming back to the states from our Germany assignment. Since our flight was delayed by 3 hours we contacted the hotel via email to let them know that we would have an even later arrival, making it closer to 2am or 3am. The hotel concierge, Patricia, received our message and replied immediately to let us know they would be waiting for us. She went home and rested and came back to greet us when we finally arrived at 3am. After an exhausting journey with our infants, we were so relieved to be greeted with a smile. To top off the long night, as we were unloading our bags from the rental car, I locked the keys inside with our babies! Patricia called the police for us and stayed with us until they were able to open the vehicle.
When we finally made it to our room there was juice and muffins waiting for us. The room was beautiful with a large, comfy bed and two baby beds for our little ones. We spent two nights and we couldn't have been happier with the amenities.
The James Gettys Hotel is the best hotel in Gettysburg. It will forever be our first choice when we return for future visits!

Room Tip: We had the suite with the kitchenette which was a huge benefit with our infant twins.

This is he best hotel in Gettysburg! It has an excellent location right in downtown Gettysburg! Free parking! Free homemade breakfasts! The rooms are spotless, and all have kitchenettes! The A/C worked great, and the tv had over 200 channels in HD! This is the only place I will stay when in Gettysburg!

If you're looking for a quaint hotel in an historic location, this is it. Old brown stone building right in the middle of town. Easy access to all the battlefields, restaurants and shopping. Nice staff and rooms. I would go there again on next visit. Only slight negative is that the price is higher than other hotels. If you're looking for budget, stay just outside of town.

Our stay at the James Geddy Hotel was simply delightful! In celebration of my birthday, the staff made arrangements for a beautiful floral arrangement and yummy cupcakes to be waiting for me upon arrival. They also booked tours for us in advance. The room was quaint and immaculate. The service was impeccable and the staff friendly and helpful. The carafe of orange juice and lovely basket of fresh baked muffins, breads and fruit delivered to our room each evening was a wonderful and delicious treat. Our stay at the James Geddy Hotel was one of the most impressive weekend getaways we’ve had in a long time. We’ll definitely return for more visits and recommend it to all of our friends.
