About the Hotel: Located in the heart of charming, historic downtown Gettysburg Pennsylvania, The Gettysburg Hotel is walking distance to the battlefield, attractions, shops and restaurants.
Our tradition of hospitality dates to 1797, when James Scott first opened his tavern. In the summer of 1863, the hotel played witness to one of the seminal events in American history during a pivotal three-day Civil War battle. President Lincoln honed the immortal words of his Gettysburg Address at the Wills House, just steps away from the hotel. Nearly a century later, the hotel served as President Dwight Eisenhower’s national operations center. After a careful and detailed restoration, the Historic Gettysburg Hotel once again welcomes guests to share in its rich legacy.
Each of our 119 well appointed guestrooms and suites are designed with today’s traveler in mind; coming equipped with high speed internet, business center, a fitness center, a roof top swimming pool, free local telephone calls, cable television, room service, turn down service, a fine dining restaurant (Centuries on the Square) and an old English pub (McClellan’s Tavern).
Our beautiful meeting space, including a magnificent grand ballroom, can accommodate up to 300 people for any occasion. We offer award winning food, beverage and catering service beyond compare.
