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...

When I checked in I asked for a late departure the next day as I had a late afternoon meeting and wanted to work in the hotel prior to leaving for the meeting,, The desk clerk said I could have until 2 the next afternoon. I went to the hotel restaurant for lunch the following day which was checkout day... More

Hilton Garden Inn is always our first choice when visiting our daughter at Penn State. Always a clean room and friendly staff! Now I have to say that Trip Advisors 200 Character min to post a review is crap. I am sure many people such as myself would just not post a review because we have things do and time... More

Have stayed at other Hilton Garden Inns yet this was a first for this property. Check-in was fast and the front desk staff pleasant (as was housekeeping) and helpful. The layout of the hotel is not ideal; the hallways are long (including getting to the elevators) and finding the exit if you were unable to park in the few spaces... More

Five day stay. Very comfortable room. Excellent Restaurant (Harrison's). Friendly & efficient service from both restaurant and bar. Comfortable furnishings in lounge and lobby area. Accommodating staff for television stations and fireplace.

Accommodations are good, food is excellent, and the staff is top notch. I will stay here again in the future. The only issue I could find with this place is that the Wi-Fi can get a little slow in the evenings. I'm pretty sure that's standard in all hotels.

We have now stayed at this location 4 or 5 times and this is the 2nd time I am reviewing it. I'm only taking the time as the hotel was that good. - The restaurant is FAR FAR better than you will ever find at HIlton Garden Inn or similarly priced hotel. We had two fabulous meals there - opting... More

This is an extremly clean and comfortable hotel. My room had a comfortable king-size bed, a large flat screen TV , desk and love seat. I used the fitness center that provided headphones for each TV. I also used the pool. The lobby is very inviting with a gas fireplace. There are lots of windows and comfortable seats. I would... More

The room was clean and somewhat comfortable. However, this hotel does not seem to be the typical Hilton Garden Inn. The hotel is noisy. As I walked through the Corredor I could hear people in the rooms. I could hear everything as I try to go to sleep. I woke up hearing everything is well. The bar close before 11... More

The only bad thing I have to say is that my sister and brother-in-law had a different room and were very disappointed with the bed - sagged horribly in the middle. Our room was fine, the staff was friendly and helpful.
