We stayed here for a family trip to Gettysburg. The hotel is very clean (even the back staircase was sparkling) and the room (we stayed in the Zeigler Holtzworth Livery Suite) was well-appointed and very comfortable. Ideal location for walking around downtown Gettysburg. What really stood out for us was the service--we received fresh pastries for our family of five...

Thank you for your very kind review of our hotel! I'm glad that you were comfortable, although we prefer not to book more than four people in one suite. Next time, please let us know so we can suggest a more comfortable arrangement with more room to move around! We hope to see you again soon! Catriona

This was the third time we stayed using the Living Social deal. We booked our room on December 18, 2014 and got the James Troxel suite, which we stayed in our first trip. When we arrived on March 13, 2015 at 3pm, we were informed, by the on duty manager, Trisha, that we had been moved due to the microwave...

Stayed on the fourth floor in a quiet suite overlooking the town. The queen bed was very comfortable and the living room/ kitchen combo was roomy. We had our friends to our room for hors d'oeuvres before we walked to dinner. Location is excellent for exploring downtown Gettysburg or the college. Park and walk.

The service and staff were exceptional. The rooms are were equipped with a kithchenette, including coffee, tea and fresh delivered orange juice muffins, cake and candy each day. They are all delicious!! The location couldn't have been better, right in center of town. The hotel is extremely clean and I would recommend to anyone who wants to be pampered.

I returned to the James Gettys the end of January for the Annual Civil War Winter Ball. This was I think my 14th stay at the James Gettys. As always, my suite, the home made breakfast, and those chocolate chip cookies. I always feel that I have a wonderful home in Gettysburg!

I hadn't been to Gettysburg and was unsure where to stay. I was pleasantly surprised with our selection at the James Getty Hotel. The building had an authentic charm and was nicely sized for a romantic getaway. It's located within walking distance of most things offered in Gettysburg and delivers freshly baked breakfast goodies nightly. Would definitely recommend!!
