Hotels in Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania hotels offer a mix of urban, rural, and city charm, from small boutique hotels, luxury room and board, B&Bs featuring local art to hostel options for the frugal travelers. For a taste of history, William Sands House offers lodging accommodations on Millionaire’s Row near downtown Erie. The 1888 Victorian home is located just blocks from downtown Erie, where you’ll find several delicious restaurants and local haunts. The Four Seasons in Philadelphia is one of the best hotels in Pennsylvania, located in the city’s cultural heart, Logan Square. Kids will feel right at home, too, with their free toy wagon upon arrival and milk and cookies at bedtime. For other family-friendly accommodations, look no further than Hershey Lodge. Just a few minutes from Hershey Park, this resort offers not one or two but three swimming pools, making it a perfect summer stay and family bingo for – you guessed it – chocolate prizes.
The resort’s log cabins are near the park’s Crystal Pool swim area (opened 1926) and the Twister, a re-creation of a lost wooden gem from Denver.
Housed in an 1856 English country mansion, the Hamanassett B&B is owned and operated by Civil War reenactors.
Bradford was a boomtown in the state’s oil rush of the late 1800’s, and Clayton Glenville Dorn made a fortune extracting oil from long-abandoned fields (using a controversial method similar to fracking). Glendorn was the “oasis in the woods” created for his family in 1929.
Stay within the ivy-colored walls of the Reynolds Mansion, built in 1885 by a banker and plush with sugar-sweet touches like cherub murals, spa tubs perched in the windows, and a billiard room inside a turret. Expect an intimate vibe: there are only six rooms spread throughout three stories.
