Overview

The property is located just minutes from the Hersheypark theme park
Room rates are expensive here
Neighboring "The Sweetest Place on Earth," The Hotel Hershey caters to families and travelers in dire need of some choco-therapy. The rooms feature bold patterns, cozy beds (blanketed in Egyptian cotton linens), flat-screen TVs, coffee makers, lavish bath products and complimentary Wi-Fi access, but it's not only the spacious accommodations that have guests swooning. Adult visitors appreciate the kids club recreation program that keeps younger guests occupied when they aren't in Hersheypark, and they also love the on-site fitness center and abundant outdoor activities. Rather than chocolate, the Hershey Country Club (home to two 18-hole golf courses) and the on-site spa (with sweet treatment options like whipped cocoa or chocolate fondue baths) are the real treats. What's more, guests highly recommend dining at the one of the several on-site eateries. Though a stay here is expensive, complimentary amenities such as parking and transportation to local attractions lower the overall cost of your stay here.

READ MORE 

The Hotel Hershey sits on 300 acres of formal gardens, fountains and reflecting pools. Like the rest of the hotel, these lush grounds are groomed to mint condition, belying the fact that the resort dates back to 1933 and the vision of chocolate magnate Milton Hershey.

READ MORE 

Built by Hershey during the Depression, he modeled it after one he had seen in the Mediterranean on one of his many trips abroad, complete with a Spanish patio, tiled floors, fountain and a circular dining room. Rose gardens were the focal point of the landscaped grounds around the hotel and they still thrive today.
