Another option for overnight accommodations is the nearby Crowne Plaza Harrisburg. Their contact information can be found at their website:  Crowne Plaza Hotel Harrisburg-Hershey.  PLAN has not reserved a block at the Crowne Plaza so you will need to check to see if they have rooms available and on their rates.
