I travel a lot for work and it's easy for a stay at one hotel to blend into the next. But my 4-night stay at this Marriott was a standout. At first I was disappointed that there wasn't more of a restaurant on site, but the food offerings were quite good for both breakfast and dinner, and you couldn't ask... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this property! The rooms have balconies and the view is pretty nice as well! The staff at the front desk is very friendly, I believe the gentleman's name was Dwayne - he was fantastic! There are not many hotel options in the area so I was very glad to find this property!

Was excited to walk into this hotel, we were in Altoona one night on business. It looks like it was recently renovated and the lobby was nice and open. I liked the little bistro and bar area with all the seating. Rooms were clean, modern and comfortable. I thought the work out room was too small, but that's pretty standard... More

Great stay. Excellent staff... Kelly at the front desk was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Went out of her way to be gracious and accommodating. Rooms are clean and housekeeping is friendly. The Bistro was great for a quick meal on site.

The Marriott Courtyard in Altoona, PA sits atop a hill that overlooks a busy section of commercial real estate and highway. But when we drive up the hill to the familiar architecture of a Courtyard, the hub-bub quickly falls away. This hotel is our home away from home when we visit relatives in central PA.
