Great location on our way to Pittsburgh to drop out son off at colleges. Came in late and already had us checked in to a nice upgraded room. All 4 of us sleep well! So if on your way to Pittsburgh from the east coast this hotel is definitely a stop over for those that do not want to drive... More

Not too far off route 99. Shops and food within driving distance. Nothing in walking distance. Right next to convention center. Staff was very welcoming. They were really good. Rooms are pretty standard. Showing a little wear and tear. Hotel has a indoor pool and fitness room is ok. Not big but enough to get you through some cardio work... More

Stayed for a night. Room showed its age, bathroom door was swollen and didn't want to close. The walls were thin and you could hear everyone on each side and the loud walker above us. Wood frame structure. Not much to eat nearby.

The hotel was very nice and clean. The decor in the lobby was modern and colorful. Desk attendants were nice, especially Kelsey (male) who checked us in. Quiet, and away from traffic. One neg. aspect was the entrance needs to be lit up at night, as well as the sign for where you turn.

My wife and I stayed one night at the Courtyard Altoona while on an overnight trip to the city. It is a perfect place to stay if you are visiting anywhere in the city or attending an event at the Blair County Convention Center, which is immediately adjacent to the Center. Our room had two queen-sized beds. It was clean... More

There was nothing wrong with the hotel and nothing exceptional either. About what you'd expect, but i felt it was overpriced. We ordered real breakfast from the onsite restaurant and it was average. Overall...ok.

We stayed here for a family reunion and they upgraded us to a suite room overlooking the mountains. We enjoyed the accommodations. The bed was great which is typically the case with Marriott properties. However, the pillows were foam, very high and way to firm. This is out of the ordinary for the Marriott brand. We found them so uncomfortable!... More

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms large and modern. Beds new and comfortable. We had a fab made-to-order breakfast. A little pricey, but worth it. Location was good. Easy access to all parts of town including the historical route to the famous Horseshoe Curve.
