“some noise in room but not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2007

The hotel sits fairly high up and was generally clean. The internet service worked well and the staff was friendly. There was some noise in our room from adjoining rooms (TV noise, morning wake-up call) which was not convenient. Overall, the property was well maintained.

  • Liked — internet access was good
  • Disliked — room noise

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2006

My three colleagues and I stayed here one night on a business trip and this place was fine although nothing extraordinary. Although we arrived late, we got the exactly rooms we asked for. The comfortable bed, hi-speed Internet, pool/gym and laundry were all very well-done - and in our case much needed - touches. I was a little surprised that breakfast was not included in the price; most family/business-type hotels usually offer a free continental breakfast or at least coffee. So unless we wanted to get in a car and explore at 6 AM, we had no other options.

Public areas could use more attention; there was dirt or dust in the gym and laundry areas. All in all, satisfactory stay.

  • Liked — The bed and business amenities (Internet, library/lounge area)
  • Disliked — No free continental breakfast; 'bar' closes at 9 PM.
  • Tips/Secrets — Call hotel directly to confirm room preferences.
  • Stayed July 2006, traveled on business

Staying at Marriott properties, you come to expect the consistantly excellent service they always seem to provide.
But sometimes it even goes beyond that, and that's why I'm writing this review.
This Altoona property is absolutely the best Courtyard I've ever had the pleasure of staying in.
Parking, view, location, cleanliness - all 100%.
But I, like others I'm sure, gauge a hotel by the first stop - at check-in.
I've stayed here many time over the years (and stay at Marriott properties at least 70 times a year), and have never had less than an enjoyable experience from check-in to check-out at this Courtyard.
The owner of this hotel is a lucky guy... He has an extremely polite, well informed, helpful, and thoroughly professional staff working for him.
And, speaking personally, this type of service will bring me back many, many times.
If you stay anywhere else in Altoona, you lose.
Treat yourself to a night at this property. (And be sure to grab a couple of those homemade cookies at the front desk!)

Stayed at the courtyard on May 16. Excellent hotel next to blair county convention center. Very clean, with pool , hot tub and gym. Many restauarants near hotel. Visited horseshoe curve. Great historic site. The staff is very pleasant. You can tell that not too many people stay here.
