Lodging at the Hershey Lodge

The Hershey Lodge offers the ideal accommodations for a mid-winter convention. Check into your room on the first day and without setting foot outside until you check out two days later you can attend the educational sessions, visit the trade show exhibits, enjoy your meals from a variety of restaurants, take advantage of the indoor pool or exercise area, and visit fellow growers at the various social events. The Hershey Lodge offers it all. Of course, there are additional attractions nearby as well, including the Hershey’s Chocolate World tour.

A special discounted Mid-Atlantic Convention room rate of $169.00 plus 11% taxes is available to attendees.  Credit cards are charged a one night’s advance deposit including tax at time of booking a room reservation.
