special section Resorts Hershey Meetings The sweet spot of meeting destinations
Tucked away in the verdant hills of Central Pennsylvania, the charming town of Hershey has become a premier destination for meet- ings and conventions. Hershey Meetings includes two properties — the historic Hotel Hershey and spacious Hershey Lodge — that when combined offer 900-plus guest rooms and more than 125,000 square feet of space that can accommodate almost any conven- tion, meeting, or conference. At The Hotel Hershey, an AAA Four-
Diamond and Forbes Four-Star property, meeting attendees can relax in 276 deluxe guest rooms, get down to business in 25,000 square feet of meeting space, and indulge themselves at The Spa At The Hotel Hershey as well as at the hotel’s three distinct restau- rants and collection of boutique shops.
The 665-room Hershey Lodge offers more
than 100,000 square feet of meeting space and four unique dining options for meetings and events. All guest rooms feature 37-inch, flat-screen televisions and multifunction cre- denzas that include an in-room safe (large enough for a 17-inch laptop), fridge, coffee- maker, and built-in “jack pack” for power cords and computer cables. As for out-of-the-box event venues, Her-
shey Country Club also has 100,000 square feet in total, including the all-season Picard Grand Pavilion, which offers scenic views of the East and West golf courses. The Pavilion provides a unique setting for banquets, or a centralized location for tournament activities. After a day of meetings, guests can unwind at the famous Spa At The Hotel Her-
shey, also called the Chocolate Spa, with a signature cocoa-infused treatment such as a Whipped Cocoa Bath or the new Cocoa Facial Experience. The Spa’s variety of health and wellness activities, from chair massages to yoga breaks, can also be incorporated into meetings. Hershey is less than a three-hour drive
from New York City, Philadelphia, Washing- ton, D.C., and Baltimore; fly-in attendees will appreciate that Harrisburg International Air- port (MDT) is just 20 minutes away.
