Posh Lodging: Bustling City
Do you have travel plans that include Pennsylvania’s state capital?
When you’re looking for outstanding lodging in Pennsylvania’s historic capital city, the Hilton Harrisburg is at the center of “downtown” activity, making it the perfect setting for a business trip, getaway, and sight-seeing adventure. You’ll find all the services you’ll ever need to make the most of your visit and the Hilton is in close proximity to many historical sites, shopping, dining, and a plethora of other attractions.
Travel Tip: Wallow in city life and plan your day around a visit to the State Capitol Complex, only three minutes by car or a whopping eight minutes by foot. Take advantage of the Hilton’s valet parking and begin your stay with lunch. Plot your route using this map courtesy of Google. Who knows? Is a leisurely stroll in order?
Hilton Brand = Exemplary Service
The Hilton over-delivers in every way – from location and hospitality to the decor and business services. Use my suggestions below to make the most of your stay.
Don’t Skip Breakfast!
The motto is “old favorites ‘turned on their side.”
Are you an early-riser breakfast-type who can’t wait to rise and shine to a full breakfast? AD LIB was my first stop on my second and third day in Harrisburg. You should allow time for the buffet, which is lovingly prepared and attended to by the staff to be sure the breakfast items are piping hot. Special requests for eggs cooked your way are honored by the gracious staff.
While you’re enjoying your breakfast, schedule some FREE outdoor time. Explore fresh-air options at Wildwood Park where you’ll find a Nature Center (perfect for families with children) and plenty of trails and boardwalks geared for exercise and nature enthusiasts.
The Hilton’s fashionable decor is also home to The 1700 Steakhouse open daily for dinner. Small plate options, 30 varieties of wines by the glass, and more than 60 selections of beer, and “edible cocktails” will round out your meal. Hours of operation and other details are available by following this link.
Many thanks to Visit Hershey-Harrisburg, my sponsor, for the opportunity to spend three glorious days exploring Harrisburg during my second media trip. This week, I’ll return to Harrisburg to cover the PA Farm Show, an annual event that focuses on education and family fun.
