Hotel owner, operator and developer Shaner Hotels has acquired the 86-room Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton Hershey in Hershey, PA. The company will operate the property and plans to implement $1.2 million in renovations to completely remodel guestrooms.
Additionally, Shaner Hotels revealed that it is scheduled to break ground on another hotel in Hersey, a TownePlace Suites, in the coming months.
“Alongside our sister hotels, the Courtyard Hershey Chocolate Avenue and the Fairfield Inn Harrisburg International Airport, the Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton Hershey further establishes our presence in the Hershey/Harrisburg marketplace,” said Plato Ghinos, president, Shaner Hotels. “The Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton benefits from its prime location directly across the street from Hersheypark, making it the closest Hilton-branded product in the area to the family amusement park. Following the completion of the hotel’s full refresh, we fully expect it to become the market and segment leader for business and leisure travelers to the area.”
The property is also close to such area attractions as Hershey Gardens, Giant Center, Zoo America, Penn State Hershey Medical Center and the AACA Museum. In addition to standard rooms, the hotel also features two-bedroom extended suites. Amenities include complimentary hot breakfast, a 24/7 Sweet Shop, free WiFi, a fitness center and a heated indoor pool. All guestrooms and suites feature microwaves and refrigerators.
