We are Marriott Reward members (gold level) and have stayed at every brand of hotel in the Marriott chain, multiple times. When traveling with our kids, we often select a Residence Inn as they typically offer the best room options for families. This hotel was the absolute worst Marriott we've ever booked!!! Upon check in, we requested the room upgrade... More

We are Marriott rewards members and booked with points. We were only able to book a studio with points and were pleased to receive an upgrade to a 2 bedroom suite when we arrived.

Visited during the arts fest and had not stayed in State College since I was a student 40 plus years before. Now it is not as convenient as being in town but a short distance and much larger spaces. We had a queen studio with sofa bed and kitchen and a fireplace. It did not have a separate bedroom as... More

Our family of 4 stayed here for a night while we were road tripping to NYC and our daughter wanted to check out Penn State.

Really great staff and a really REALLY great hotel. The room was really spacious and clean and there was plenty of places to grab a bite nearby. Hope to be back again! Also its pet friendly. As a dog lover, that's crucial to me.

We were lucky to get the two-bedroom suite for graduation weekend! Two bedrooms with two bathrooms, kitchen area and living room with fireplace.

We had a nice stay for 4 nights recently, and have only positive comments, with the exception of the mattress comfort (especially the pull out sofa bed, which was only used one night, and then our kid said they'd prefer just the couch).
