Three hotels—a Home2 Suites by Hilton, a Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton and a Four Points by Sheraton—have opened in Pennsylvania over the past few weeks.

The 107-key Home2 Suites by Hilton Harrisburg North opened in southern Pennsylvania. The hotel offers guests access to downtown Harrisburg, the State Capitol Building and Museum and the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center and features an indoor saline pool, a grab-and-go market and a combined laundry and fitness area. UD Hotels owns the Home2 Suites by Hilton Harrisburg North and Springwood Hospitality manages it.

Further east, the 100-room Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton Kutztown debuted earlier this month. The property is located within walking distance of Kutztown University, shopping and restaurants and near attractions like Crystal Cave and Hawk Mountain Sanctuary. Amenities include a fitness center, an indoor pool and two meeting rooms. Kutztown-based Ursus Aureus owns the hotel and TKo Hospitality of Newark, Del., operates it.
