Overall OK hotel but the mattresses are horrible. If you don't care about sleeping then stay there. The food in the restaurant was also OK, tasty and fresh. Location to Penn State Football games - very good and they had a shuttle to the game as well; convenient.

I give this Hilton high marks in facility management and employee attitude. My numerous stays for work in the area keep me coming back and I've never been disappointed. Reservations are quick and when asking for considerations in booking they go out of their way to make it happen if possible.

In either case, you are not looking for a resort - just a comfortable, clean and spacious room and that is exactly what you get at this Hilton Garden Inn.

I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn, State College for business. We had two meetings there and a dinner. The staff were very accomodating and very patient! It was a wonderful experience! The guest rooms were very clean and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to any of my family, friend, or co-workers.

Only one problem during visit, a noisy A/C Unit. Problem was taken care of as soon as we reported it. Excellent service and hotel experience in every aspect of our stay. Wonderful staff, and hotel. Trip Advisor requires 200 characters for this review; so Happy, Happy, Happy, and everything was just Ducky.

Comfortable, clean, spacious rooms with a great restaurant within the hotel. It's the best place to stay in the city. The hotel includes meeting rooms, exercise facilities and a cozy lobby area. Complementary coffee and tea are provided for guests in the lobby. It's my favorite place to stay in State College.
