We had an early morning hockey game in Altoona. This was a perfect stay. The kids enjoyed the pool. The parents enjoyed the Starbucks coffee in the morning. The lobby and rooms were decorated nicely. Beds were comfy. Rink was 5 minutes away. The only thing I thought was weird were the towels at the pool. They were hand towel... More

Well, I'll first start off by saying that the only I stayed here was for business, and my employer paid for the room. To me, this hotel is clearly for business guests (those that don't care about spending extra money for trivial perks). Granted the hotel is really nice and so was the room. But, the room itself was nothing... More

Very nice hotel. Room is spacious and clean, and so is the bathroom. Front desk guys are welcoming and informative. A minor issue is that we were assigned a connecting room, and when there were people talking by the door in the next door room, it would sound like they were in our room. We were a little worried about... More

We stayed at the Altoona Courtyard for two nights when in the area for a home Penn State Football game. While this Courtyard has been retrofitted with the new lobby configuration, the rooms are not up to date. The result is a basic Courtyard experience. Functional but in no way on par with a main brand Marriott. The rooms are... More

I think I just had higher expectations than this hotel could deliver. They say the rooms were renovated 1 year ago but our room was pretty run down. The pictures, bedding and wall paper are new, but the furniture and AC unit seemed very beat up and the carpet was filthy. There was just a lot of wear in general.... More
