  1. I was attending an event there on Saturday Night and my skirt was tugged 2X quite intentionally. When I spun around no one was there. I checked my shoes and dress to make sure I did not get caught on something. Then I said “Hello” out loud. The entity was small and close to the ground and it moved directly out of the room (eastward) This happened on the north side of the fountain in the Fountain Lobby. I wanted to ask any employees if they had experienced being tugged, or anything in the Lobby as well.

  2. I thought I had stayed at the Holiday Inn Hershey but I could be wrong…after reading AKs post maybe should post mine on both sites in case it sounds familiar…In 1982-83 I was in high school/vo tech and we attended a DECA conference at this hotel. We were having our last big meeting/dinner in one of the conference rooms and someone had an instant Polaroid camera. A few of us leaned in while another one took our picture. As it developed slowly on the table the way they did…a little boy appeared right in the middle open space between us. He had short dark hair and a white tshirt with red stripes…We were frozen! There were no children in the room and he was clear as day! My friend Maureen went to Potsgrove High School and went to tech with me. She swore to keep the picture. I lost touch with her but I’m sure, tucked in a drawer somewhere, she still has it!! I’ll never forget that experience and often wonder who he was and what keeps him there…

  3. I worked 3rd shift in 2008 at the hotel and on the 3rd Floor at 3 am I saw a black figure dart across the hallway. I quick went to investigate and no one was around. No doors could be heard closing.

  4. I stayed in the Hotel Hershey in 2017 when attending a conference. I have been back there with friends just to walk around the magnificent property. I never had any supernatural experience. It was peaceful. The food there was wonderful. I had a bedroom with two queen beds, and when I asked if there was anything with a king (I was alone) I was provided with a charming luxury room with a living room area and an alcove for the bed. Loved walking the grounds. At delicious food at the restaurants. The food was excellent. Wish I toured the gardens as I had a free pass. Slept soundly. No ghosts. I’d love to return, but I can get rooms cheaper at the Marriot chain.
