The James Gettys Hotel is centrally located in Gettysburg and is conveniently located within walking distance to dining, shops, activities. We parked our car on Friday and never used it again until Monday and we had a great weekend. The hotel was full, but we never saw or heard another guest. Coffee and pastries were provided each evening for a delightful continental breakfast. Fresh cream and orange juice were also provided. We stayed in the Blue Parrot Tea Room. It was fantastic and we can't wait to go back! Don't miss this hotel. The staff is wonderful!

After calling it quits on a three-day hike on the Appalachian Trail, a friend and I caught a shuttle into Gettysburg to the James Gettys Hotel. I'd chosen the James Gettys based on its superb location and the fact that it had a vacancy; true, it was pricier than I'm used to, but did I mention the "three-day hike" part? In spite of our damp clothes, huge backpacks, and malodorous hair, we were greeted warmly by the staff, who showed us to our room and later sent up fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. The room itself was perfect: tastefully decorated, and so comfortable. We enjoyed the continental breakfast (also baked fresh!) that magically appeared in our fridge for us to enjoy the next morning. What I want most to praise--beyond the comfort of our suite and the tastiness of those cookies--is how kind and professional the staff at James Gettys is. They did their utmost to make sure we were happy and comfortable, and assisted us in finding transportation. They also helped us figure out the best way to take a quick morning tour of Gettysburg on a Friday. They really went out of their way, and I could not be more thankful. I will definitely return to the James Gettys Hotel again, and I highly recommend it.

We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time. The Blue Parrot, next door, is a fabulous spot for lunch and dinner.

Only got to stay one night, and it was the most charming lodging of our week-long Civil War sites road trip. Right in town and a block away from the center of Gettysburg. Parking included in the back. The staff were very nice and welcoming. Onsite dining is the fruit and pastries for breakfast brought to the room, which was good. The added bonus was the dark chocolate treat! Suite had an updated bathroom, and everything was clean and comfy. I would highly recommend a stay at the James Getty Hotel.

Nothing but good things to say about this historic property half a block from the heart of the town. My room was a legitimate suite. Adjacent parking that can be reached bypassing the heaviest tourist traffic. You're going for the history, so why not stay in a building that was there long before the battle?

Very quiet place to stay in downtown Gettysburg! Room was very nice but a teensy small for 4 adults. Close to everything! Great value for a beautiful historic place!

We were very pleased with our decision to stay at this hotel. We were in the Sign of the Golden Cross Key Suite. The room was pure luxury! The service was amazing as well. The hotel was within walking distance to most of the attractions and restaurants we were visiting. The staff was pleasant and attentive. We will definitely stay here again!
