Default Hershey April 20, 2019

PCA Hershey is Saturday April 20. After the debacle (for some unlucky patrons) last year at the Hohumway Inn, I would like to have brief poll (7 days).
White Rose is under new management and able to process reservations this year. I have not checked with either of the choices re availability. Price quoted is what I found on line (hotels.com and tripadvisor) today. I believe White Rose has more rooms; Red Roof is walking distance to Dukes. I like the convenience of walking to Dukes. If someone has stayed at the Red Roof, please give rating for us.

White Rose, 717:533-9876, 1060 East Chocolate Ave. $65/night,
Red Roof Inn, 717-533-1234, 1806 E. Chocolate Avenue. $55/night.
Other: If you vote Other, hopefully you can post a suggestion re "Who"

Steve - I met the new owner of the White Rose last fall when I was in Hershey for the Mecum auction. He seems like a really good guy, and it is still a family operation. The place looked like it always does, nice and clean, and put together. He'd love to have us and would give us a group rate. If you'd like, I can reach out and see what he'll do for us. This has been on my radar, but got buried during the holidays. Thanks for dusting this topic off...

I'm in for where ever everyone decides! I like White Rose but the Red Roof across from Dukes Restaurant and Bar is great too!

April 20th is the Swap meet. Come in on Friday the 19th and leave for home on Sunday the 21st?

Jane and I will be coming. With the new planned work on Lili's interior, we won't be bringing her this year.

OK, I just spoke with the new WR owner - Bob. First off, not sure where you got the $65/night Steve, but a double at WR is $105 + tax. He is willing to give us a group rate, for 15 double bed rooms, at $89.95/night + tax. The King rooms are currently $95/night + tax. If we want a couple of those I'm sure we can get a discount there too, as part of the 15 room block.
So what do folks think? I'll need to confirm fairly soon.

Ed: Sat both tripadvisor and hotels.com showed $65; Now both show WR and RRI at $95. Another reason to book direct, I think. I set the poll to run 1 week. But it is no big deal.

Rick: I expect to do the usual, i.e., book Friday and Sat and leave early Sunday.

I'll go ahead and get the group set for it then. I'll post up here after I've done so (hopefully later today - damn - I hate work sometimes!)

Group rate set for the White Rose. The group name is "the Porsche Group". The group rate is $89.95/night + tax, for a double bed (no kings left he told me). We have a block of 15 for Friday night, and 8 for Saturday night (it can be more - just let the hotel know if you want to stay that second night at the group rate - he'll honor it).

Number is 717-533-9876.
