We stay at the Staybridge on Wildwood Drive annually, for an event at the Farm Show arena. A good reasonably priced facility with a decent breakfat.

While it is not within walking distance of anything other than the Farm Show complex, it is only bout 10 minutes to downtown, if thats where you need to bew

Best bet if those two are booked is the Radisson, Camp Hill, across the river. Probably the closest to downtown. Couple of miles away is every chain you can think of.

@john, 4 miles, from exit 67A off 81, located downtown. Free parking? No, meters on street and garages. $18 at the Hotel garage. Breakfast you may want to cross the river on the Market Street bridge and head north on 11/15 heading back towards 81 and hit one of the diners on that route.

If you are only passing through the area and don't have a specific reason for staying in downtown Harrisburg, I would avoid the downtown traffic and extra parking expenses and stay off one of the I81 exits in Harrisburg. There is a Spring Hill Suites (15 Capital Drive) off I81 Exit 69 Progress Avenue. There is a Comfort Inn (5680 Allentown Blvd) off I81 Exit 72 Paxtonia. Both hotels are located near shops and restaurants.

More than 5 minutes. Lots of traffic lights, always depends on time of day and day of week as well.
