The hotel is conveniently located and has friendly staff who makes one feel they are at home. The restaurant, Harrison's is awesome has healthy meals and uses all local ingredients. From the staff at the hotel and Harrison's Restaurant, its a perfect setting no matter what time of year one visits.

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.

The most common reasons to visit State College are to accompany a prospective/current student and/or see a football game. 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. Top it off with a great restaurant within the hotel -... More

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.

The hotel is incredibly dumpy. The lobby is very chic but the rest of the building has not been updated since 1972. It is outdated, a long walk to the rooms & elevator, very cruddy design. Stinks. Do not stay here and there are many other hotels in town to choose instead. Breakfast is expensive and not included.

This review has many errors and is not reflective of the many positive reviews posted on this site. The most erroneous error is the statement is that we were built in 1972. This hotel opened in 2002! Please note all our previous reviews have no indication of this reviewers statements on the condition of our hotel. I hope all you... More

My 2 children and I stayed here and the front desk staff was great. We had a late check in (after midnight) and checking in with two kids under 4 can be difficult even in daytime hours. The gentleman at the front desk made check in fast and easy. I forgot my charger and they returned my call almost immediately... More

We stayed here for a college visit and were very pleased with our room and the closeness to Penn State. We had a room on the 4th floor that was extremely quiet. The room was very clean with comfortable beds. Our only issue with the room was a sticky bathroom door that needed persuasion to close properly.
