With some awards to use I made a trip to Altoona. I am not a big fan of Pennsylvania but it was where the dart landed. As has been said the exterior is not new or chic by any standard but that really is a non issue to me. Regardless if it where it would have been quickly forgotten by... More

Great place to stay, very clean. Staff is very polite and helpful. Guest reception on Tuesday evenings is very nice added touch to staying at the hotel. Free Wi-Fi and a continental breakfast is available. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Altoona area.

Lisa really did an outstanding job of making us feel welcome, and that we were a valued customer. All of the other staff that was there were also pleasant, not the typical type that act like youre a problem to them. Would recommend to anyone.

This hotel is a wonderful place to stay. The patio area in the back is so beautiful and relaxing. The front desk staff is outstanding especially Tara and Dawn. The guest reception on Tuesdays is a nice perk and very well put together. I would stay at this hotel anytime I'm in Altoona.

The hotel is very clean and everyone was welcoming and friendly. We only stayed one night but there is plenty to do in the area for families. The breakfast was enjoyable with everything... More

Tuesday evening the Altoona location puts on a reception that is one of the best I have attended. This week was Pork Stir Fry and Tilapia. Normally I search for a local restaurant for dinner but with the menu and the company, I enjoyed a nice evening at the location. Tara joined us for conversation for a while. Very fun... More

Booked a room for one night for an event in Altoona. Travelled there from a previous event where water had been a problem. The Hilton graciously let me into my booked room earlier than checkin time to allow me to shower before my event. I was so grateful!! I recommend this hotel highly. It's right next to a couple restaurants... More
