Hi,

From my searching seems like Residence inn has the biggest and newest full kitchend rooms, with what is the Wyndham better?
Was told that there is a lot of kid friendly amenities. But actual rooms are nothing major

I stayed there and highly recommend it for kids
Kids had a great time thanks, service a little on the slow side, took a couple of hours to finally get the rollaway delivered. Got them to waive the rollaway fee instead of the upgrade for diamond members they didn't have.

Looking into Lancaster/Hershey for chol hamoed. What hotel makes the most sense to stay in, in terms of shul and succah. Any kosher food to buy and which shuls and other places have a public succah? Tia!
