I recently stayed here with my husband for a random one-nighter while driving through the city. It certainly is a beautiful location and only a 10 minute walk to some cool and tasty restaurants, but honestly, I was a bit disappointed. Breakfast was continental (serve yourself), and our room had some minor issues. The first thing that really surprised me... More

Overlooking the scenic river and bridge (especially pretty at night when it is foggy and lit up in a hazy romantic way), this old brick home has been authentically restored and updated with all mod cons. We were visiting for an academic conference and the hotel at which it was being held was sold out, boo hoo - not! We... More

This is a beautiful old house right on the Susquehana river with lovely large rooms and a large bathroom. It is also very convenient to downtown Harrisburg. A great place to stay if you are visiting the National Civil War Museum.

Everything about this place is lovely and relaxing. The décor is beautiful. The common rooms are plentiful and inviting. The room was spacious and the bed was very comfy. The bathroom sported two things I always appreciate: lots of conditioner and a full-size hairdryer. Breakfast was nice, but not over-the-top as some B&Bs can get: various continental items and a...

My wife and I "happened" upon City House, as we were researching hotels and the like, looking to spend some time in Harrisburg to celebrate our Anniversary.

This B&B is absolutely beautiful and you immediately feel at home when you enter. I stayed overnight since I was graduating at the Forum.

The City House is everything you want in first class accomodations. King size beds that offer comfort and guarantee a good night's sleep, immaculate bathrooms with special touches and an innkeeper who runs the place superbly.

The location is ideal: along the river and jogging path, walking distance to a number of really fine restaurants, friendly staff with helpful suggestions about the area and comfortable room and bed.
