About Gettysburg Hotel, Est. 1797

Let Our History Become Yours

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, 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.

 

Impeccable Service and Attention to Detail

Your guests will feel our hospitality during your reception as they arrive in our Atrium for cocktails and our Chef’s unique culinary creations.  The spacious and light Atrium allows your family and friends to socialize freely while being attended to by our professional staff.  Every detail of your reception will be carefully executed to ensure that each guest feels like royalty.

 

Designer Appointed Accommodations

Since 1797, guests have enjoyed the warmth and gracious individual award winning service we consistently provide.  Our 119-room hotel has expanded over the last several years and has been remodeled from top to bottom to bring you a new look and feel.  Guests will experience a historic visit while enjoying all of the amenities of the modern age.  Our bridal suites we redesigned with your wedding night in mind, featuring a king sized bed, romantic crackling fireplace, and Jacuzzi for two. 

 

Your wedding will be remembered forever if you allow us to make our history…your destination.

We cannot express enough how grateful we are for the well-organized and beautiful wedding ceremony/reception we had at the Gettysburg Hotel. The day was absolutely perfect! We had a wonderful time and none of it would have been possible without the talented and attentive Gettysburg Hotel catering and events team/staff. April, our Catering & Events Manager, was fantastic and a true gem. She was professional, personable and always responsive to all our questions. She was meticulously detailed in every aspect, extremely flexible to meet our ever changing needs and a tremendous help in working within our budget. We highly recommend the Gettysburg Hotel for your wedding venue. You will not be disappointed!

With all the build up and pressure of planning your wedding, the right venue and coordinator can truly make all the difference. I am so beyond thankful that we got to work with the Gettysburg Hotel and April. The hotel itself is beautiful, and can accommodate weddings of all sizes. They even helped organize and set up our ceremony at the train station next door! We were able to have almost all of our out of town guests stay upstairs which made for a really comfortable trip for our friends and family. April made sure everything ran smoothly. I am a perfectionist and she met my very high expectations. Being so on top of everything, I felt that I could really trust her and it allowed me to relax. The little details were all taken care of and April did not miss a beat. When I did have questions or concerns, she was super responsive and even took care of a few last minute errands for me. I cannot reiterate enough how happy we are with our wedding, our venue, and especially the Hotel's wedding coordinator April. Do yourself a favor and book this venue!

The Gettysburg Hotel is a great venue to work with. They are always available for assistance if you need it. They offer top quality food and everything you need for your wedding under one roof.

When you have an event at The Gettysburg Hotel, you are creating your own kind of history. The building is beautiful, but the main ballroom, oh, what can I say? It's stunning. I love the old safe, as you can get very creative on how to utilize the space! The event team at The Gettysburg Hotel is top notch! The event team is wonderful to work with, and always have the client's best interests at heart. Don't wait, RUN to see the property!

Wow, what a BEAUTIFUL place!! The staff are experts and the food is exquisite. I would HIGHLY recommend them!

The Gettysburg Hotel is one of the nicest wedding and reception location around. Wanda and her staff are great and will take care of all of your needs. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is great and from a photography standpoint it has some of the nicest locations to do candid wedding photography. We highly recommend the Gettysburg Hotel and we know you will enjoy it also!!

I have had the priviledge of performing several weddings at The Gettyburg Hotel and every time I come away impressed with the beauty, the history and the quality of service they provide. I am always pleased to work with them and very much look forward to the next opportunity. I highly recommend The Gettysburg Hotel! You will not be disappointed!!!
