Depends on what price range for a hotel you're looking for... obviously the BEST place to stay and closest to Hershey Park Stadium is The Hotel Hershey; you get what you pay for in that case. Love it! There is also a closeby Hilton Gardens in Hummelstown (right down Hershey Park Drive). OR if you're looking for some nightlife afterwards, etc. you may want to stay downtown Harrisburg; Hilton and Crowne Plaza best choices. Good luck and have fun!

You could always stay by the turnpike if you want to be close enough but then close to Harrisburg for the day as well. wyndham.com Eisenhower Blvd.

Anything on Eisenhower Blvd. Harrisburg is right by the turnpike.

Just heard that Crown Plaza has construction going on--no exercise room available--check them to see what else is affected before you book there.

no pool, no exercise room !!! bummer !!!

i was so disappointed.

they had an arrangement with the hilton for crowne plaza guests to use thier pool , the others i wwas with went to try it, and that wasnt hapnneing, over crowded, too many small children,

me 2 , since we just got home , i haven had time ( we went to central park and saw bon jovi!) , anyway, my boyfriend told me to let it go,i will not let it go, i wanted to go in the pool, it was a long drive to PA , and when we booked it, noone told us it was under renovation. i figure i should just write them a letter, and see what happens, maybe i ll get a doscount from the stay which i just had, or a comp on a future stay at any future crowne plaza,

they had many guests and i am sure they are probably gtting alot of complaints, so i want to make sure my letter gets read.

If you charged it you can contest the charge too and have someone else working with you on this.
