We stayed here for the first time recently. The room was well appointed, clean, and quiet. All staff we encountered were very pleasant and eager to see all our needs were met. We especially enjoyed breakfast in the onsite restaurant, which consisted of a buffet, as well as a selection of made to order items. The waitstaff were appropriately attentive... More

Perfect location for a Penn State visit. Close to the sports complex. Great value for a family of 4. The breakfast is good and inexpensive. Tony at the front desk was extra helpful with requested suggestions, and Amanda, in guest services, offered a few needed shuttle rides. They made our visit extra nice.

Staff did a GREAT job recommending places to eat and things to do. Hotel was VERY clean and welcoming. Location of the hotel was very convenient to PSU and the Bryce Jordan Center for the basketball game we were attending.

As a business traveler, I have chosen this hotel because of the restaurant and availability of a refrigerator and a microwave. Was disappointed over the last few stays- One treadmill not working, TV not working in work out room, room heater very loud and could not regulate very well. Suggest that better preventative maintenance occur more regularly to identify these... More

Stayed here for a work trip to State College. I forgot my shave kit in my room and the team was responsive and sent it to me with no issue; I even offered for them to send it COD and they just sent it. Team was great there, the property is quite big. The restaurant is nice and the staff... More

Giving this a 3/5 based on a mix of good and bad experiences. Had a lengthy stay at this property which I chose due to Hilton HHonors loyalty and TripAdvisor reviews. I was able to check-in online and get into my room early, which was great. The room was spotless, well-appointed, and generally quiet. The only issue with the room... More

Nancy Clark and the other staff at this Hilton Garden Inn are wonderful. They were very accommodating and easy to work with from scheduling & coordinating our two day meeting to reserving overnight stay for everyone.

Qualities you would expect from the Hilton Brand. The room was very clean and comfortable. Mattresses were comfortable and the bathrooms were spotless. Two things that are very important to us when we stay.

The hotel is excellent! Not only is the lobby beautiful and the rooms comfortable and well kept, the staff is top notch. I woke up one morning to find that my rental car had died, I inquired at the desk about who to call to help when the staff offered to jump the car themselves. So one of the staff... More
