I came across this resort by accident while trawling the internet for weekend getaway ideas for the V-Day weekend. It looked nice and was ranked the same as The Hotel Hershey (which I have been to) by AAA so I thought I'd give it a chance. When I saw the pictures on their website, the first thing that came to mind was "Eh, a bit dated, but it still looks nice." Well, appearances can be deceiving...

I got the resort's Stupid Cupid package for a 2 night stay which included: accommodations, free bottle of wine, 2 free drinks in the bar, and breakfast for $209/night. After this weekend, I wouldn't pay more than $70/night.

The entrance and lobby were impressive. The staff was friendly and accommodating though few actually knew anything about the area and attractions. The tavern had good appetizers, friendly bar staff, and good music. But, that's where the compliments end for this resort.

??Luxury? is not an adjective I would use to describe the Lansdowne Resort. The first clue was its location: in the middle of an industrial park surrounded by condo and office buildings. Once you get past the lobby, you see that this resort is nothing more than a gussied up Days Inn:

Public areas: Outside, the sidewalk abruptly stops halfway down the driveway, turns toward the emergency entrance for the pool, goes down 2 steps and leads to the far end of the parking lot. In addition, there isn??t a walkway connecting the corner handicap ramp to the rest of the sidewalk. In the bathrooms, there are no dispensers for the hand towels, wallpaper was poorly done, no frame molding around the stall doors and there??s black mold growing behind the jamb. The common areas have streaks, fingerprints, untidy furniture and visible dust on accent pieces. The elevator bank on the terrace level is found in a workers?? area outside of the room service kitchen. In the elevators they have a baby moon-style mirror that can give you vertigo or trigger an epileptic seizure by looking at it.

Concierge: The woman at the desk is friendly and informative if you know what you??re looking for, but she doesn??t do more than make reservations for inside the resort. And she only has limited brochures available for local attractions.

Doormen/valet: Doormen were astonished by the lack of wind tunnel effect when I opened the opposite door in the second set of doors. There were no valets to be found inside or out so no assistance with luggage or valet parking.

Public areas of the floors: They had the a/c on high all day, sloppy house phone setup in the elevator lobby, ice machine was turned off.

Rooms: Garage sale decor (70s era chairs and accent table, modern headboard and light fixtures, Colonial-style desk and nightstand, casual armoire), outdated TV with barely functioning remote and only 12 channels (no premium movie channel, but 4 sports channels), almost zero storage (3 small drawers in the armoire, 1 small drawer in nightstand, and a closet with 3 hangers), very dark even with all of the lights on, no small refrigerator, no room safe, thermostat was only for show as the temperature never exceeded 68 degrees (had it set for 80), burned out bulbs in the lamps, only 1 small box of tissues, must pay for sugar and cream for the in-room coffeemaker (which also wasted half of the armoire??s usable storage), tacky room rate sign in the closet (we laughed at the quoted price: $419/night for 1-2 people). Bathrooms: paint on the wallpaper, no heat lamp, water pressure was non-existent (4th floor room), hot water was lukewarm at best, a dirty rubber bath mat (too cheap or too lazy for the non-slip epoxy in the tub?), standard tub instead of jacuzzi tub, poor exhaust fan, non-mounted hair dryer had little power, no glasses.

Maid service: Same service you get at Motel 6. Really strange was a Friday night surprise visit from a maid asking if we wanted more towels?

Restaurants: No bathrooms in the restaurants themselves, you must use the bathrooms in the public areas. Only place to get lunch is in the Clubhouse and there are no signs directing you to its lounge. The Hearth??s furniture was not only dated, but also deteriorating. All of the vinyl seat bottoms were scratched, stained or discolored. The buffet food was terrible: I get better breakfasts at The Hampton Inn or the local greasy spoon. Even the coffee tasted funny, Sunday I drove to Dunkin Donuts. If I wanted to do the Harvest brunch instead, I had to pay an additional $35 per person. Um...no.

Spa: Though the service and staff were very good, the spa itself wasn't anything more than what you find in a strip mall. Fireplaces in the lounge and reception area were off, carpet in the Men's locker room needed vacuuming, water and trail mix in the lounge (oh please), unreasonably expensive (comparable services at The Spa at Hotel Hershey during V-Day weekend is at least 30% cheaper).

In conclusion, if you're expecting 4-star luxury, as I was, you won't find it at the Lansdowne Resort

I have been to the spa and to the restaurant at the Lansdowne Resort and I was disappointed in both. The faical I got was a $155 service and I cannot see any difference in my skin at all. The restaurant had a buffet open the day we were there and between the 4 of us eating, none of us thought any of it was particularly great. There also seemed to be things missing off the buffet....like salad without very many dressing options. The physical building is very nice, but you pay for it and what you actually get is not that great.

I received a gift of a day at the spa here and had an amazing time. The Champagne and Roses facial was fantastic, and I had the most relaxing massage. I've had better manicures and pedicures, but it was still really, really nice (careful of the paraffin...it gets *really* hot!).

If you're staying at Lansdowne, definitely hit the spa for some pampering.
