A Pre-Spring Getaway at The Hotel Hershey
Perched atop the highest hill in Hershey, PA sits The Hotel Hershey, full of beauty and history. Built by chocolate magnate Milton S. Hershey, this luxurious property was built during the height of The Great Depression. Entering her 84th year, The Hotel Hershey offers guests a sweet pre-spring escape to help ease cabin fever.
Grab a drink and some bites
Earlier this month, we proudly reopened the Iberian Lounge after a month-long refresh. Highlights include a new entrance (which was actually the original entrance of the room in the 1930’s), fresh paint, comfortable oversized sofas, additional seating areas, new lighting and flooring. It’s the perfect place to relax with drinks and lite fare. Click here to see the full menu. We recommend a Hershey’s Martini or The Hotel Hershey Signature Dark Chocolate Cream Pie.
Be enrobed in chocolate

In honor of the town’s rich history, The Spa At The Hotel Hershey features a variety of chocolate services including a Whipped Cocoa Bath, Chocolate Fondue Wrap, Cocoa Massage and more.
