I recently stayed 3 nights at the Hershey Lodge while attending a conference. It is perfect for such large events because of the space available. However, that means guests should be prepared to walk quite a distance in most cases to get from their rooms to the lobby area and on to the meeting areas. Those with mobility issues should inform the hotel and ask to stay in the "the Towers" part of the lodge. If you bring your family along, rest assured they'll have plenty to do while you're at the meetings. The lodge has mini-golf, tennis and basketball courts and swimming pools for use by its guests. Plus, the Hershey attractions are really close and easy to get to. I found the service of the staff to be extremely professional and courteous. Just passing in the hall warranted a "hello" or "good morning", "enjoy your day". I had a couple of plumbing issues with my room and my needs were met promptly and politely. Room service was also a very positive experience. If I had to plan a large event or conference, I would use this facility. The only drawback I can see is the linear layout of the lodge which makes for more walking to and from the room as opposed to a veritical high-rise which uses elevators more to move people around. But, one solution was the bell-hop used a golf cart to take me around to my room with my bags, so I didn't have to go move my car, etc. I'd stay there again.
