Spa Girl says Chocolate*Chocolate*Chocolate--Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

What fun to spent Valentine's Day in a place where everything is chocolate--The Spa at The Hotel Hershey. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

In the rolling hills of Hershey, Pennsylvania, nestled atop Pat's Hill overlooking majestic gardens lies The Spa At The Hotel Hershey, a haven with innovative and relaxing spa services, where you will enjoy classic elegance, timeless sophistication, and the unmistakable touch of Hershey.

Built on a tradition of excellence and luxury, The Spa At The Hotel Hershey is the newest addition to a town with a richer history than the chocolate that bears the same name. Its timeless elegance and charm connect it directly to the past. The design of The Spa draws its influence from High Point Mansion, the home of chocolate magnate, Milton Hershey, and his wife, Catherine. Echoing the High Point Estate, and incorporating Catherine's love of roses, Hershey created a spa with a one-of-a-kind experience. From the stained glass windows, marble landings, pecan paneling, and beautiful views of The Hotel Hershey majestic gardens, The Spa is unlike any other.

Let yourself be soothed and toned in total luxury at The Spa At The Hotel Hershey, a sanctuary where chocolate is not just a treat to eat, but a necessary ingredient for innovative spa treatments such as the Whipped Cocoa Bath, Chocolate Bean Polish, and Chocolate Fondue Wrap.
