More Room Types

Best Western Premier The Central Hotel’s name rings true for anyone looking to stay near downtown Harrisburg, Hersheypark, Gettysburg or Lancaster. The hotel, ranked No. 2 of 50 Harrisburg hotels on TripAdvisor, is 15 minutes from the Pennsylvania State Capitol Complex, a 25-minute drive from Hershey’s Chocolate World and less than an hour from Gettysburg National Military Park and the Amish Village outside Lancaster.

The hotel features a variety of accommodation options, but the largest and most comfortable choice is the two-room suite. With separate living quarters and two private bedrooms, the suites sleep up to six guests and are ideal for families or groups traveling together. Each is equipped with a kitchenette, flat-screen TV and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Catering to business travelers, the hotel has 17,000 square feet of meeting space and a 24-hour business center. No matter what brings them to town, all guests will look forward to relaxing in the heated indoor pool after a day of sightseeing or meetings. Visitors also have access to the property’s game room and fitness center. 

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the O’Reilly’s Tap Room & Kitchen serves Irish specialties and American comfort food in a family-friendly environment.

The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle service to the Harrisburg International Airport, Amtrak train station and Greyhound Bus Station.
