The Spa at The Hotel Hershey Review

If you are a chocolate addict, then there is nowhere greater to be than The Sweetest Place on Earth: Hershey, PA.

Now imagine being both a chocolate AND spa addict. That would be me and I got to mix both pleasures at The Spa at The Hotel Hershey recently. A chocolate lovers dream come true.

The Spa at The Hotel Hershey

The Hotel Hershey:

The Hotel Hershey is a 4-star and 4-diamond hotel set atop a hill overlooking the town of Hershey. From the balcony that is off The Circular Dining Room, you can see the Hershey factory, amusement park and all that the town of Hershey has to offer.

When we pulled up the driveway to The Hotel Hershey, I was in awe of how massive the mansion-like hotel was. Upon check-in you’re asked which type of chocolate you like and the receptionist presents you with a complimentary Hershey chocolate bar (I chose dark chocolate of course!) The hotel layout is an intricate maze, so it’s very helpful that they provide you with a map…not to mention that the staff is very patient answering my countless questions of, “How do I get there again?” when referring to the Spa, the ice skating rink, dining options, etc.
