Rated 2 out of 5 by Blueblood86 Bad Milk
My recent stay at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hersey Hotel was not what I was expecting based on the reputation of this company. The first clue my stay would have been not acceptable was when I booked and ended up with 2 separate confirmation numbers for the same weekend with 2 different price points. Customer service was gracious enough to honor the lower price point that was offered since I was attending a volleyball tournament in the area. When checking in I was told I could not have a late check out. The person checking in next to me asked for a late check out and was given a 1pm check out time. This was a little puzzling why I could not have a late check out since I was traveling on the same dates as the person next to me since we both have sons on the same volleyball team and we drove to the event together. The next clue was the complimentary breakfast room on the 10th floor. To my surprise when pouring milk on my cereal, it had gone bad. I reported it to the staff member that was attending to the guests breakfast needs and the response I received was, "I will report it to the manager". I went back on my second day of my stay and the milk again was bad. Same person that was attending to the guests breakfast needs had no response to the bad milk. Instead of reporting it to the front desk I went to a local establishment and had breakfast. I also did not like the musty smell in the room I was staying in. The ceiling clearly had water damage that was painted over, but still noticeable.

As a Starwoods member, I often stay at many hotels. I was deeply dissatisified by this hotel. Is was VERY dark in the hallways. The rooms were not clean. We found water bottles in the refridgerator from previous people. In addition, the shower is extremely dirty and not well kept up. There is mold on the ceiling and as you walk through the hotel, wallpaper is coming off the walls. We had to ask for towels at the pool, and when we first walked into the pool, there were dirty towels all over the place.
I would not come back to this hotel, nor recommend anyone staying here. There are many hotels in the area that are much nicer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Monica5177 Room OK for a night or 2, Resturant & Gym good
While the room itself was just OK (could use a little updating). The pool & gym area were very good - and the bar/resturant had good food, good service, and convenient hours. They were open late and very accomodating.
During our 2nd day; there was some kind of pipe break on the 3rd floor - so i am going to assume that is the reason our room on the 5th floor smelled like a sewer the next 2 days. we tried closing all the drains to help the smell.... but it was very noticable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dawn29 Comfy, clean hotel
I love this hotel! However, when I had to check out early due to issues at my job, they wanted to charge me a one night fee for early check out. They waived the fee when I complained, but said it is part of the contract. I disagree with this policy, as i alerted the hotel the day prior to me leaving and if I was checking in the next day I would be able to cancel without penalty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Michal117 This is a good convention site.
This is an excellent hotel for conventions and meetings. It has all that is needed for an event. The wait staff is excellent and work hard to meet the needs of guests for dinners and breaks. I have attended a convention here for many years and everything is consistent for preparation and planning. The only down side is that the meeting rooms are kept too cool for a January meeting.

Unfortunately this property does not meet the standards set by the SPG brand. It is worn down and all the facilities are below expectations. The rooms are very noisy and the pillows felt 20 years old. Stay elsewhere...

This hotel was better than we expected. The room was spacious and the hotel was close to restaurants and shopping. The hotel restaurant food was good, but the service was slow. The bed was harder than we expect at Sheraton Hotels, but all in all it was a great stay.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SAYETY Not great.
As others have said if you are gold or higher status as a SPG member don't expect to be treated as such. Club lounge (after you beg for access) doesn't allow kids. Come on, this is the nearest Starwood hotel to a MAJOR theme park and you block kids?!?! Literally, my 4 year old daughter had to stand by the door while i got our breakfast and carried out...staff didn't even offer to help me carry it back to the room. we really felt like a second class guest.
Hotel its self was OK newer carpet, ok rooms and beds...a bit of a mold issue in the bathroom.

Lifetime platinum member and they couldn't be bothered to upgrade me to an SPG floor.
Staff could not care less...Lousy attitude.
Some of the TV channels didn't work and the answer I got was, you just have to wait....
Cross this Starwood off your list....Not worth the stop...

Rated 1 out of 5 by db777 Needs a thorough cleaning
Stayed here as part of a family vacation. Everything was in need of cleaning. We went to use the gym and there was sticky soda spilled on the gym equipment.The hallways were in need of a vacuum and a carpet shampoo. There was a dead bug in the bathroom. Cleanliness means a lot. If you don't keep the common spaces clean how do I know that you are taking care of my room? Beware of sub-standard cleanliness here.

We found your staff to be especially friendly and helpful. I became ill during our visit and every one went above and beyond their normal duty to be kind, concerned and helpful.
The food in the dinning room and bar was beautifully served and delicious.
We certainly will recommend your hotel to one and all.
Sincerely, Jack and Hazel Lang

Rated 5 out of 5 by JulieHS Clean, Convenient and Comfy!
I stayed here for a convention and found the hotel to meet my needs in nearly all regards. My only inconvenience were the electrical plugs. Only two accessible in the room and everything we plugged in one of them fell out. The bathroom had one but the plugs did not hold tightly anything we plugged in it either. Fortunately we found the one that fold up out of the desk/table in the room.
Had a issue at check in using a debit card when checking in....DO NOT EVERY DO THIS AT ANY HOTEL. They put a "hold" on the amount which as I was sharing the room and only paid half...took nearly all my money for our stay. The manager on duty was GREAT and fixed it up for me and I got the money back immediately after working with my bank. The check in person should have told me and I specifically asked him about this when I gave him the card. Beds VERY comfortable, everything clean, conveinient and comfy! Would stay there again but the hwys around Harrisburg are crazy! They make no sense. Not the hotels fault though and they are right by what I GUESS! is one of the major hwys. Thank goodness for GPS!

Rated 4 out of 5 by OccassionalTraveler October Stay
On this most recent stay, the staff went out of their way to interact. Its always been good, but this was even a little better. Breakfast at the rest was awesome. Felt like the staff went a little above and beyond what we have come to see as the norm here. Always like staying here. Will admit didnt like that the starpoints for a free stay were doubled within the last several months, but staff seemed a little more enthuastic, and we will continue to stay here everytime we are in the area.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NicoleS Great proximity to Hershey Park
Overall I was very disappointed with the room. Within minutes of us getting there a 2 inch, unidentifiable bug met us, the ceiling in the bathroom looked like it had black mold spots and when the people flushed the toilet upstairs it sounded like it was right next to the bed. However, the kids loved the indoor/outdoor pool and the hotel was in a great location to get to Hershey Park and there are plenty of restaurants and stores nearby.
