The auction began with a $1.5 million bid on Monday and on Tuesday afternoon, the high bid for the auction was $2.5 million.
The hotel has hosted many weddings, proms, conventions, political events and more over the years. The hotel contains a 30,000 square feet of event space including a 15,000-square-foot ballroom that can accommodate 1,400 people, according to the auction listing. The hotel, which was built in 1964, has 250 rooms, a pool, business center, fitness center, event space including a ballroom, and a restaurant, according to the property listing on Loopnet.com.
The hotel and events industries have been rocked by the COVID-19 pandemic. The property listing said that the auction was a “Receiver sale for fee-simple interest unencumbered by brand or management with the opportunity for post-renovation revenue growth.”
The hotel is located at 1150 Camp Hill Bypass in East Pennsboro Township near Lemoyne near Harrisburg Academy and Perkins Restaurant & Bakery.
