Excellent venue for a conference and stay. I have attended this conference for many years and do my best to book at the Penn Stater before it sells out for the conference. Clean rooms, excellent amenities

I could spend hours in the lobby! Cozy furniture by a wonderful fireplace. Then go have lunch and/or dinner at Legends, which is reasonably priced and has an excellent menu. Rooms are clean, quiet and nicely furnished with comfortable beds.

We attended a banquet dinner at the hotel. The food was very good. The hotel room was clean and the staff were very friendly. I was also happy to see many options for recycling. I would select the Penn Stater again.

I was attending an overnight business meeting that included a group dinner, business meeting and luncheon. Rather than drive three hours, I chose to take the Megabus to State College and commute to the conference center from the drop off point. Prior to my arrival, I contacted the Penn Stater to arrange a pick up. The driver arrived 10-15 minutes... More

Recently up in State College for a "Winter Sports Weekend" coordinated through the Central Pennsylvania Visitor's Bureau. Our stay was WONDERFUL as rooms were clean and very comfortable. The Penn Stater was extremely convenient for ice hockey and women's basketball events. The food at Legends is really THE BEST...have the club with the Mediterranean salad and you will agree!

I was scheduled to attend a conference at the Penn Stater and booked via phone when the online reservation would not accept my code for the conference. I appreciated the phone assistance after calling the hotel directly. They made the reservation even more quickly than I could have online and they were so helpful and polite during the reservation process.... More

This is the second time I stayed at the Penn Stater for a conference. Both times were great! Clean rooms, good food and very helpful staff. Having the conference in the same place where you are staying is very convenient and makes it so much easier. Thank you!
