Hotel Indigo Harrisburg-Hershey

We recommend our hotel sponsor for the festival, Hotel Indigo Harrisburg-Hershey. Combining the warmth of a small town with easy access to Harrisburg, Hershey and Harrisburg International Airport, Hotel Indigo Harrisburg-Hershey always welcomes travelers with a smile. Taking inspiration from our neighborhood, the hotel is full of local touches, like images of the famous Walnut Street Bridge, which dates to 1890. To make a reservation, visit their website, here.
