I Had a Sweet and Fun Stay at The Hotel Hershey

Hotel HersheyI recently went along with my partner on a business trip that she took to Hershey, Pennsylvania. The motivation was threefold: spending time with her & her brother, visiting Hershey Park and spending time with my friends who live in that area.

I did all of those things while staying at The Hotel Hershey. As soon as I pulled up, I knew I was in trouble since I didn’t realize how high class this place was and I forgot to pack nice clothes. Whoops.

The first place I went to in the hotel was the room. The hallway to the elevator was a strange walk on Floor 1 to Floor 5… that’s right, I walked from the 1st floor to the 5th floor while staying at the same elevation. I guess that’s because there are 2 towers to the Hotel Hershey.

While walking to my proper elevator, I walked past a majestic pool/hot tub setup and an entryway to some beautiful grounds overlooking mountains and trees. Then, I got to the room and laid in what had to be the most comfortable hotel bed I’ve ever slept on in the US. It was a beautiful room with a gorgeous bathroom, but the room did not have a microwave and that’s a flaw for wanting to heat up food.

Now to talk about the eateries available. First off was the Iberian Lounge that I went to on the night I arrived that had a rustic ambiance and served some good drinks. Second was The Circular where I had the breakfast buffet that cost $23 but was worth every penny. The greasy egg white omelet I got was outweighed by the other good food I had like the chocolate bread pudding, fruit and bacon. Lastly was the Cocoa Beanery coffee shop that was open all day, where I got a bagel and a tasty panini with 2 different types of cheese & bacon.

There were also some interesting shops that I took no part in since I decided to go to Hershey Park instead to spend some quality time with my partner’s brother. We rode everything in 4 hours and my stomach never felt more funky & I never felt more like an old man. I also saw my friends after I worked from the comfort of my hotel bed, so the whole trip was worth it. Especially if you’re able to afford the Hotel Hershey.
