We always take the time to do a few of the hotel activities when we stay at the Lodge, so we did them at the Hotel too. This is so much fun to do as a family. Chocolate bingo and the candy bar scavenger hunts are our favorites. The outdoor pool was a blast for my kids 9-17. I love the pool side snack bar, so convenient for parents. This made for such a relaxing atmosphere to snack and drink poolside while the kids played. We also spent a good amount of time exploring the grounds. Nice long walks in the mornings. There is beauty everywhere you look here.
This is a place I have visited before and I can’t wait to come back again. This is the flagship restaurant o the hotel. It features the fresh, new flavors of an iconic American dining experience, reimagined. The menu and ambiance provide a versatility of dining experiences, from small plates and drinks at the bar with friends to an intimate meal for two overlooking the beautiful formal gardens. The Circular serves the best brunch and breakfast buffet around. If you stay at the hotel, a meal at the Circular is a must. The Hershey Kiss waffles and the chocolate bread pudding are to die for!
Fun fact: Did you know Milton Hershey wanted a circle shaped restaurant so no guest was ever seated in the corner like he often was when dining alone on his travels. Thus this restaurants shape and windows with the most spectaculars views. No seat is a bad seat when dining in the Circular.
