I have been a Executive level guest at the Harrisburg Hilton at least 4-5 times a year for the past three years, and have always been pleased. The staff members who I recognize from my many visits are wonderful. But the best I will rate the hotel now is Average.
But apparently there has been a management company change during 2013, and I presume their mandate was to cut costs. Unfortunately they whittled the amenities in the Executive Lounge to bare bones. No more local papers. The lounge is now closed for most of the day. The food is high fat, or high sugar or both.
But the biggest travesty was the ending of the jazz in the bar. Friday was mobbed since Steve Rudolph still performs on First Fridays. Saturday night, there were 5 customers in there - sitting at the bar reading their tablets. No one was ordering food. We got out of there as quickly as possible. No reason to stay. Don't tell me they saved money with this idea.
So with no business class treatment, and absolutely nothing happening on a Saturday night, you might as well stay at the Hampton - at least there you get coffee 24/7 and an apple.
