Very nice hotel. Had large conference center/event space. Even with a wedding reception going on while we were there the staff was helpful and available. My only suggestion would be to make sure you are not on the first floor if there is going to be a wedding reception. Our room had a window into the lobby, which was inconvenient...

Pros: Hotel employees all very nice. Clean and quiet and close to Farm Show and Hershey attractions. 1 bedroom suite was perfect for my family of four (with two little ones). Cons: Indoor pool was freezing. Bed comfort was very poor. In house restaurant does not know how to cook chicken. Raw chicken on my salad.

Away on a quick weekend away for my boyfriends birthday. This hotel was both beautifully decorated, Hershey themed without being childish, easy to find and had a great location. The pub downstairs had delicious meals and perfect desserts and drinks for the occasion. Would recommend for all looking to get sophistication and ease on a tight budget.

Stayed here while traveling back to NJ from a business trip to VA. When I arrived, I noticed a strong fake air freshener smell in the room and the heater fan blowing full blast. I tried to turn it off and air out the room to no avail. They sent someone to check in it, but apparently the fan cannot...

One night stay as a stop-over on a road trip. The hotel is about 20 minutes from Hershey Park in a spot right off I-83. Hotel was very clean and The Grand Atrium makes you feel like you are in a more lavish brand hotel. Best Western's sometimes get a bad rep for being a standard hotel, but I really...

Not exactly what I expected from a Best Western... The lobby was decorated for Christmas and it was absolutely stunning. Felt like I had walked into the lobby of a first class hotel. The rooms were very spacious and the common areas were very clean. Everyone we interacted with was truly professional and genuinely interested in making our stay wonderful!

My family arrived in the early evening after spending the afternoon in the cold at Hershey park. The lobby was beautifully decorated for the Holidays. The ambiance really cannot be beat, really classy. The front desk clerk was very professional and helpful. The best touch for me, was the fruit flavored water. I don't know why but I just love...
