Wonderful place! We just spent two nights at the James Gettys hotel. First of all, the location is perfect, right downtown, close to dining and shopping with free parking behind the hotel. Next, the suites (Indian King and John Troxell) were large, very well equipped with kitchenettes and adequate seating, good wifi and comfortable beds. The staff was wonderful, very... More

My wife and I spent our second consecutive year at the James Getty. From here we went to Harper's Ferry, Antietam and a Frederick Keys baseball game all in one day. Granted, we could have spent more time at any one place and it made for a full day, but knowing we were relatively close to our 'base' allowed us... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for two nights over the 4th of July weekend. We stayed in the Keystone Suite, and it was perfect! Very cozy and comfortable, and the inn keepers were very friendly and helpful! The treats delivered to the room each night were for breakfast the next day, but they never made it to breakfast they...

Our 2-night stay in the Lord Nelson room was perfect. From the moment we arrived, we felt like honored guests. Check-in was a snap. The Lord Nelson room was warm and inviting, it is located on the second floor. The separate bedroom, with a comfy queen bed, added to the feeling of being in a little apartment as did the... More

We stayed overnight in the Indian King Suite in early May as part of our road trip throughout Eastern USA. This suite is generous in size and is well suited for a longer stay with a well appointed kitchenette. Good central location and staff were very pleasant and helpful.

The building is right in the heart of town, and the rooms are beautiful. It has a modern feel in such an old building. We only stayed one night, but it would have been well worth it to stay another few. The room was very nice, the staff was super friendly

Although I have lived in PA my whole life, I have never been to Gettysburg. We decided to stay at an historic place. The James Gettys hotel was built in the mid-1800's and has been many different establishments over the years. Although being very old, it has been renovated and is a wonderful place.

My husband and I love Gettysburg and it's history. We stayed here for our anniversary getaway. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly! It was like having your own little apartment! However, if you're afraid of a few bumps in the night maybe it's not for you. Definitely some paranormal activity! Great place!
