I stayed at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey for business conference. The staff was exceptional--very friendly and competent. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. However, it is an older hotel and badly in need of bathroom and other upgrades. The tile in my bathroom was discolored and rusty. I don't think it was lack of cleaning. It was just that old. The design of the room was not very functional. The closet is in a tiny alcove with the sink. When the doors are open to access the clothes you can't get to the sink, let alone the room with the toilet and shower beyond. The door to the bathroom opened into the bathroom and physically touched the toilet. So it had to be closed to use it. (Hey, I travel alone. Don't judge me if I don't close the door to the bathroom!)
Room service was exceptional. The food was really good. (Try the Oreo cheesecake for a splurge.) Service was fast and friendly and they called after a few minutes to ensure everything was as it should be. Nice touch!
The other major issue with this hotel is the climate control. It is a very humid hotel in the corridors and especially the meeting rooms. It feels like every meeting room is poolside. There has to be some solution to minimize the humidity from the pool in the rest of the building. A colleague with me has been there for meetings multiple times and said it's always that way.
Bottom line, if you aren't going for a meeting and you don't mind the older bathrooms, it's still a good place to stay.
