To start you planning, you will first want to know about where places are that you can stay in Hershey, PA. During my recent visit, I was honored to have stayed at the luxurious Hotel Hershey, a four-star hotel on a hilltop adjacent to the Milton Hershey School.
This resort was founded in 1933 and is known as a true historical landmark to this date. Milton S. Hershey and his wife traveled overseas and stayed in a luxurious hotel in Spain. Upon their return, it was his dream to construct a similar structure at home. The Hotel Hershey has an architectural design that includes mosaic tiles, high archways, floral landscaping and breath-taking views. The interior is unlike anything I had ever seen. With artwork that shows the history of Hershey adorning the walls throughout the hotel, you can also dine at the delicious Iberian Lough, sit on the deck and enjoy a fire or even relax in The Spa at The Hershey Hotel.Interestingly enough, during my weekend visit, they received a fair amount of snow. Fortunately, there was plenty for me to do both inside and out. I also got to see some of the beautiful landscaping before it was covered in a magical blanket of white snow.
While at the hotel, I had a chance to enjoy a chocolate pedicure from The Spa at The Hotel Hershey. This spa offers a one-of-a-kind experience that will leave you feeling relaxed, pampered and even indulged a bit. The Sweet Feet Chocolate Pedicure included choclate sugar exfoliation, chocolate mask for the feet and a wonderful chocolate massage.
**Fun Fact – did you know that chocolate has health benefits? Chocolate is full of exfoliants and can help improve your hydration and complexion.**
The Hotel Hershey also has breath-taking design and views both inside and out. With 276 guest rooms within the hotel, the grounds also has luxury cottages, a swimming complex, recreation area, restaurants, The Shops at The Hotel Hershey shopping area, and more.
