The Hershey Lodge

The Hershey Lodge

A warm welcome awaits you at The Hershey Lodge, the beautiful resort that is home to Groom Expo. It is one of the experiences that makes our event so special.

When you enter the lobby, you will be drawn to the massive stone fireplace. Post and beam ceilings, stonework, and comfortable furniture pay homage to Hershey’s rural Pennsylvania Dutch heritage and make this lobby a memorable place to meet, greet, gather and relax. At night, you will enjoy the deluxe rooms, with regional decor and Hershey’s Kisses on your pillow.

Restaurants and lounges offer a varied selection of cuisine. There is casual dining in Lebbie Lebkicker’s Eatery & Pub or steaks at The Hershey Grill. The Forebay, Bear’s Den and Lobby Lounge are places to “talk dog” or wind down after a day of seminars. Close to The Hershey Lodge, a multi-million dollar spa joins the great amenities.

Golf is a tradition in Hershey. One of the courses is ranked in the Top 100 by Golf Digest. Horseback riding, lawn bowling, health club, fitness center, tennis courts, and horse-drawn carriage rides are all at the Lodge or nearby.

The new and expanded Chocolate World, HersheyPark, the famous Rose Garden, and ZooAmerica attractions are just minutes away, so your family can catch the convenient shuttle while you enjoy the Expo.

An airport shuttle from Harrisburg International Airport is available with 24-hour reservation. There is a charge for the shuttle.

No pets are permitted at the Lodge or Show. Dogs involved in the contest and demonstrations may stay in the secure dog holding area. Request information from Barkleigh.
