You pretty much have only two choices if you want to stay in Harrisburg and not use a car: the Hilton and the Crowne Plaza. The CP is in a good location, but if you don't know that it's an urban Holiday Inn beforehand, it becomes apparent during the stay. Prices are high for the product, but they can be if you're the only show in town. Bathroom very tight, but good shower. Closet is open. No microwave or fridge. Tiny business center. Internet is slow. Minimalist fitness center. I just heard the toilet flush next door, and I can feel the wall shake when the neighbor slams his door. Lobby is OK, could be worse. Staff respectful and friendly. Hotel website should make clear that coming onto the property will look like going into a high-rise parking garage, and if there is a line of cars, you will stick out into the street. You would be better off to square around and come up the side street, where there are meters for loading and unloading. Check in and then have valet take car. But there are pubs and bistros within 5 minutes' walk, and state capitol is 12 minutes away. Hotel seems geared more to weddings than to business clientele. It will do, but it's definitely not upscale. "Crowne Plaza" is a glittering generality.
