“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Location,location,location, walking distance to histotrical sites, antiquing and restaurants. If you're there on Saturday don't miss the evening musical program Christ Church up the street. Rooms were nice with large comfy beds. The only thing I can say negatively about the hotel is the front desk service, polity but snobbish.

The hotel was immaculate. We have returned here with all of our children ages 23 - 9. This is our 4th stay at the hotel. It is in a great location to all the sights. You can walk through the town, or take your car on a short drive to the Battlefield destinations. Thanks for a wonderful time.

Room Tip: We loved the corner suites with our boys. It is great for families.

This is a delightful hotel. Modern, but not too 'modern'. Spotless. Big room. Stayed on Square with no noise. People at hotel were very very nice. Gettysburg has a number of nice hotels in the downtown, and a Saturday morning market, so it was great being downtown to walk around both the evening and morning. Perfect!!

Room Tip: Choice of rooms with nice amenities.

It's always a gamble when you stay in an unknown town at an unknown hotel. I got it right when I picked the Gettysburg Hotel for my family trip. So right that I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else should we return. I'd toyed with some upscale motels in the Gateway Center, but when I saw them, I realized how far from the real town they are, and that they're like upstale motels anywhere in the country. Not the Gettysburg! The location is perfect--right on the central square, in walking distance of lots of restaurants and shops. There's an outdoor pool, which was great on balmy August days after seeing the battlefield. Happily, although we'd been warned in reviews not to be in one of the front facing rooms because of noise from the street, we didn't experience any! We were in the attached building on a right angle from the main hotel, and we looked directly out over the square, and perhaps they did some soundproofing during their renovation because it was wonderfully quiet to sleep there. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. I couldn't get the computer in the business center to work for me, and the city does charge you for going in and out of the garage out back--it was $10 for 24 hours, but if you leave, and return and leave again, there are additional fees. One of the receptionists said they were looking into valet service, which would be more convenient, but in the end probably more expensive! These minor issues aside, the classiness of the hotel, the fact that it's part of Gettysburg history, combined with its location right in town make it a great place to stay.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor in the oldest building in the hotel, and overlooked the square. We loved w...

We booked this at the last minute. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was a refreshingly modern hotel, but tastefully done. The staff were great, especially housekeeping. The rooms were spacious.....we stayed in a room with a sitting room and pullout bed. The car park was next door and good value. There is a pool which we didn't take advantage of :(

Spent two nights here last week. Recently modernized historic hotel in the heart of Gettysburg. Immaculate rooms, good service, close to everything, reasonable parking garage around the corner. We did not eat in their restaurant, but it looked as beautiful as the rest of the hotel.
