Graduation of Grandson at Penn State Law School My visit was very comfortable and restful! I highly recommend this location as it is the very best! The manager greeted me warmly and the dining room staff were very helpful and provided excellent service to me and my family!

With the expansion of other hotels in the area a major chain should not depend on just local management. I began staying here when it first opened and over the past -4 months watched it slip to just another hotel with all right rooms. The most recent experience was when they botched my reservation and all you get is a... More

This hotel is near the Penn State campus and the people at the hotel understand that you are probably in a hurry and your plans are changing and you need advice and you want to comfortable and happy and as relaxed as possible. They make it all possible for you to have a great stay. They are quite accommodating and... More

I came here over night with an airline crew. Over night, my cell phone charger broke and I was on the first day of a 4 day trip. The front desk staff found a cell phone charger in their lost and found that was never claimed and gave it to me to keep. That's the great service that I don't... More

I have stayed at the Hilton Garden several times within the last year for business trips. The staff .... everyone from front desk to housekeeping is extremely courteous and friendly. The rooms are always clean and I have yet to have an issue with noisy hallways or neighbors even when I'm next to the elevators. A plus for me is... More

The room was nice and was clean. But when I spend that kind of money I at least expect a modest breakfast not one that costs $13. Also the quick check out was stopped at this property. I would not stay at a Hilton Garden Inn again I I have a choice!

Yes, we charge for our breakfast, but it is a full, cooked to order breakfast with everything you need to start your day off. It's not just cereal and a few pastries - it's cooked to order with fresh eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, anyway you like it, and all you can eat. I hope you will allow us another opportunity...

I normally like to stay at a HGI when traveling for short visits or business. The hotel lobby is small in comparison to other HGI's and not as nice, but it is clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, I stayed when several other students who were there for a game also stayed at the hotel, so the... More

The room smelled like smoke and the bathroom was dirty. Plug ins are hard to access. The restaurant is terrible. They are extremely rude and over priced. My food was terrible (again) and had to be sent back. I was actually told to leave and that I had to wait in the Conf room for my server to get my... More

Sometimes when a hotel has to fit into the wedge of a property they can acquire, it doesn't always give a hotel a good layout. The property itself is very nice looking and certainly gives you a sense that it is indeed a Hilton property, but it's layout was unexpected. The first thing I noted pulling into the property was...
