The Hotel Hershey serves up a sweet retreat for couples, groups and families.
In 1894, Milton Hershey put central Pennsylvania on the map when he opened his world-renowned chocolate company, constructing his very own model town for employees in conjunction with his business facilities. More than a century later, the area is still thriving and lures scores of visitors each year looking to experience a taste of Hershey’s sweet vision for themselves. Packed with resort-style amenities, the historic Hotel Hershey gazes out over the scenic surrounding valley and vibrant gardens. The range of 276 accommodations includes handsomely furnished guest rooms and cottages all done up in rich shades of — what else? — cocoa and cream, and equipped with amenities like in-room fridges, DVD players, iPod alarm clocks, luxury bedding and turndown service. The seasonal/weekend Cocoa Kids’ Club keeps little sweeties entertained, while the on-site spa pampers parents with sumptuous chocolate-infused body scrubs and facials. Segway tours make a fun way to see the property, and shuttle service is available to transport guests to Hersheypark, ZooAmerica and other area attractions.
