Reviewed December 27, 2012

I booked this hotel to stay overnight after a company Holiday Party. The facilities, food and beverage for the party were great. Our room got upgraded to the Presidential Suite, which was fantastic! My only complaints with the room was that the fridge in the kitchen was a mini one and there was tons of cabinet space but nothing in them. No dishes, silverware, napkins, etc. They could have taken out half of the cabinets, put in a normal size fridge... We had breakfast in the restaurant and ordered omelets with potatoes and such, which was all very greasy. It left the three of us very uncomfortable for the morning. Overall, it was a good experience, the staff was nice and everything was clean and updated. Next time, I just might skip the breakfast.

In all of my 20 plus years traveling to tournaments in the Hershey/Harrisburg area, I have never received more positive feedback than I did over the Thanksgiving "weekend" from all of my parents that stayed at the Holiday Inn Harrisburg East. The rooms were in excellent condition and ready for everyone upon arrival...breakfast in the restaurant was outstanding and the staff made it crystal clear that they were in fact a "Team Friendly" Hotel. As far as location...couldn't beat it! Nestled between all of the rinks including the Hershey Park arena....we couldnt have asked for a hotter spot! We were so pleased that we booked our company Holiday Party there which was a HUGE success as well.

I will definitely refer this property to anyone visiting the area.

Thanks HI East!!!

Thank you for taking the time to pass along such great feedback from your hockey families. We enjoyed the opportunity of accommodating all the teams, and are delighted they recognized our Team Friendly atmosphere during their stay. Our great location to the rinks is an added bonus, which travelling parents appreciate.

Thanks for your business and recommendation.

I have been attending the Sunday Brunch for about a year. The Staff deserves recognition for the outstanding service and attention they provide each an every weekend. Tammy who serves as the overall Hostess an supervisor an Mitch L her assistant. Tony who ensures the Buffet is kept hot and fresh and the cooks Mitch S, Oscar, Will, and Avery who are at the carving and egg stations. And the servers Sasha, Bethany, and Lori take the drink orders an ensure the tables are kept clear and drinks full. Although there is no major advertising for the Buffet, word of mouth about the outstanding menu and service brings many back on return trips. The Buffet hours are from 11am to 2pm and although reservations are not required it is recommended for large groups. Stop in an try it. Highly recommended!!!!!

I stayed there on December 10, 11, 2012, the counter service was the best I ever experienced at ANY hotel, they were accommodating and made me feel like I was truly a welcomed guest. Hope the staff member made it to the Thursday night Eagles game! After reading various reviews across the web I was expecting much less and what I found was a great hotel that when staying in this area I will here for sure. The outside hot tub was even working, has a great indoor pool, and the outside (now covered) pool looks like it is great. I did not eat there but the staff was very nice and even passed me some utensils so I could eat breakfast in my room. In a nice area very close shopping, and food store. Highly recommend.

Our organization has been using the Holiday Inn Harrisburg East on a regular basis for over 15 years. We have used this hotel for large conferences, small committee meetings, special event celebrations, etc. We also make this our priority hotel for all our organization's overnight rooms when travelling to Harrisburg on business. We held our last event on December 8th and had an outstanding Holiday Lunch. We can always count on ALL staff to provide exellent service....the Sales and Banquet Staff are always professional and great to work with. Our guests are also very happy with their rooms and the service from the Front Desk/Hotel Registration Staff and have requested that we continue using this hotel. I would recommend this hotel for all your needs....business or pleasure.

For the past four years, we have held our annual company Christmas party, approximately 100 guests per year, at the Holiday Inn East. Brenda Ryneski has been awesome to work with while planning the party logistics and menu. Her suggestions reflect her many years of experience in the hotel/restaurant business. The PA Ballroom serves our group well, with ample room for socializing, dining, and presentation of prizes and gifts. The staff is friendly and accommodating, the food and drink delicious and plentiful. I highly recommend the Holiday Inn East for your business gatherings!
