Independent hospitality management firm PM Hotel Group has added Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel near downtown Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to its portfolio of managed hotels.

Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel is located just ten miles away from Chocolate World and Hersheypark attractions in Hershey, Pennsylvania, US.

The Marriott-affiliated property features 347 rooms, 15,000ft2 of meeting and event space, an on-site fitness centre, restaurant, and pub.

PM Hotel Group’s capex team and Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel will immediately start a multi-million-dollar renovation at the property.

The project, which covers all the building’s areas, will help restore its position as the full-service hotel in the market.

PM Hotel Group president Joseph Bojanowski said: “We know and love the refreshed Sheraton brand ethos, creating spaces where we welcome guests as part of our community. Travelers and local want to connect, they want to gather and enjoy a sense of community.

“We are honoured that we were selected to help execute the evolution of the Sheraton Harrisburg and transform the property while imbuing our people-first culture, our commitment to detail and passion for innovation with our partners, team members and guests.”

The latest addition will strengthen PM Hotel Group’s Marriott-affiliated properties portfolio in Mid-Atlantic.

Currently, it manages around 30 Marriott-affiliated hotels, which includes the Philadelphia Marriott Old City and the Renaissance Philadelphia Downtown in Pennsylvania, US.

In May this year, the company announced that RevPAR Index (RPI) across its portfolio increased by 28.8% in the past 12 months.
