About Us

Located in the heart of downtown, the Gettysburg Hotel is the preferred destination venue to make your once in a lifetime event truly perfect.  The Grand Ballroom, originally built in 1814 as the Gettysburg National Bank, features a 28’ hand painted ceiling inlaid with gold, period chandeliers, large windows with sweeping velvet evergreen draperies and a Grecian border.  The original bank vault is still in use as both a place to store your wedding gifts and an ideal and unique photo backdrop.
