A warm welcome awaits you at The Hershey Lodge, the beautiful resort that is home to Groom Expo. It is one of the experiences that makes our event so special.

When you enter the lobby, you will be drawn to the massive stone fireplace. Post and beam ceilings, stonework, and comfortable furniture pay homage to Hershey’s rural Pennsylvania Dutch heritage and make this lobby a memorable place to meet, greet, gather and relax. At night, you will enjoy the deluxe rooms, with regional decor.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner—Hershey Lodge has it all. Browse their delicious breakfast menu or grab lunch to go at the Cocoa Beanery, enjoy a sit-down bite to eat at one of the best lunch spots, The Bears’ Den, and end your day indulging at Fire & Grain or Revelry, two of Hershey’s finest restaurants.
