The Aspire is the recently renovated wing of the venerable Eisenhower Hotel and Convention Center just south of Gettysburg. The hotel is situated on a beautiful property out in the countryside a few miles from the Gettysburg battlefield.
My wife and I stayed there two nights in April 2013. We found our room to have up-to-date furnishings, new bath fixtures, new carpet, and attractive decor. The bed was comfortable. We were disappointed, however, to learn that their website was in error when it said that amenities include a free continental breakfast. There was NO complimentary breakfast, although the nice lady in the deli in the Eisenhower hotel next door did compliment my shirt when I bought breakfast ($16 for two coffees and two breakfast sandwiches). Hopefully by the time you read this review, they will have either begun offering the breakfast or fixed their website, but do confirm by phone if this amenity is important to you.
Sadly, the walls of this older hotel must not have any sort of insulation or sound proofing. On both nights we were able to hear every word spoken by the couple in the adjoining room. Clearly and distinctly. The crying baby in their room on the second night ensured that we got very little sleep. It was as if the adjoining door blocked sight, but not sound.
Other than the deli, we didn't get a chance to try the onsite restaurant. Note that there is no restaurant or any other sort of shop in the Aspire itself, they are all in the Eisenhower Hotel. There is an enclosed walkway from the Aspire over to the Eisenhower.
Bottom line: I would stay in the Aspire again, but only if I were booking adjoining rooms.
