The Hotel Hershey Review | Hershey, PA
I have visited Hershey, Pennsylvania over a dozen times within the last few years. There is so much to do in this sweet town it really takes multiple trips to experience it all. In the past, my family and I have stayed at the Hershey Lodge, its a family fun destination that offers its own waterpark and on sight restaurants.
However, as many times as I had visited this sweet town, staying at the Hotel Hershey and Hershey Campgrounds remained on my travel bucket list. That is until recently when I took a Girls Trip to Hershey, PA. My bestie Danielle and I packed our bags and headed to Hershey, PA to celebrate our birthday’s together.
I have heard many rumors about this hotel and had actually taken a historical tour of the property during my Sweetest Welcome in 2016. I highly recommend asking for a quick historical tour at the front desk if you have the spare time. I learned a lot about the hotel as well as Milton Hershey, who was actually responsible for creating the town Hershey.

Before we dive into the room it’s self I wanted to point out some complimentary services and perks The Hotel Hershey offers.

Tip: Reserve your Shuttles ahead of time. They do offer last minute shuttles however I have found reserving them ahead of time makes everything easier.
Let’s start from the beginning, upon arriving at the hotel you can expect some cheerful valet’s. The first valet we encountered actually ended up being out valet for our entire stay. He was very funny and helped make us small town girls feel extra special. At check-in, you will receive the classic Hershey Milk Chocolate Bar and complimentary tickets to the Hershey Conservatory and The Hershey Story Museum. After quick directions to your room and a little help from the Bellhop, your room is only minutes away.
Double Queen Room
This spacious room was perfect for a girls getaway, it had ample room for us to hold our stuff and change outfits seamlessly. This came especially handy when we needed to do a quick change before our special dinner at Devon’s Steakhouse. Which by the way was a very delicious dinner!
Each room comes stocked with Aquafina water which is complimentary for guests in the mini fridge. The smart TV allows for screen sharing with your smart devices such as your phone, tablet or computer. I liked that I could just connect my iPhone to the TV and pick movies from Netflix. We ended up binge watching Marvel movies until we passed out each night. Complimentary coffee and tea kcups were included with the room, which was perfect for our morning beauty routine.
In the bathroom, you will find everything you need. in case you are like me and forget your toothbrush. They truly are spoiling us by giving us small complimentary samples from their Hershey Spa. Hershey Spa is truly one of my favorite places to visit in Hershey. It’s a wonderful place to visit when you want to relax and be spoiled. If you would like to learn more about the Hershey Spa head over HERE.
Overall I would recommend this hotel for a Girls Trip or small family trip to Hershey, PA any day. The Hotel Hershey sits across the street from Hersheypark, Hershey Stadium, Chocolate World, Hershey Conservatory and many other hot places to visit while in town. I love how the hotel still has that classic old time luxury feel even though the building has gone through many restorations and upgrades throughout the years.
The Circular – Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dinner
By the way, if you are looking for a delicious way to start off your day, then you need to check out The Circular. I am a huge fan of The Circular Room Restaurant at The Hotel Hershey. The breakfast buffets are my absolute favorite way to start off my day, they have a secret recipe Hershey Bread pudding that I vow I will eventually figure out some day.
If you are ready for freshly made omelets, Hershey Kiss Waffles, full spread hot and cold buffet with fresh pressed Orange Juice. Then you must make it to The Circular for a breakfast you will never forget. Breakfast does not require a reservation, guests can walk up and be seated.
