Stayed here in January 2016, while visiting State College for workshop. Was pleased that the room was very clean and furniture and decor was new and stylish. It was also very functional. The only improvement could be the thermostat control. It seemed difficult to adjust the heat level.

Finding a hotel room with 2 king beds in a large (500sf) room is a great bonus for families with teens. This hotel is all fresh and new from a renovation, with the fun curved couch and nice colors in the rooms. I like the small table you can pull up to the couch for your drink, quite convenient.

My family of 4 stayed here on 7/31 while visiting PSU. We liked the pool and jacuzzi, very relaxing after our long drive. The room was good, close to the elevator, ice machine and drink machine. We had a nice breakfast, and enjoyed our stay. We'll be back for a football game. We are.......Penn State

The family stayed for Arts Fest weekend 2015, and the room was perfect. We had two queen beds and a roll away. All the finishes are very nice everywhere in the hotel. Girls really enjoyed the pool which is a bit bigger than the standard indoor pool you'll find at a hotel. The beds were perfect. Normally "at my age",... More

The hotel rooms have been newly redecorated and very well in a modern, comfortable style. The rooms are large with high ceilings and pleasing furnishings. The staff is very well trained and helpful. The cafe bar is cool and fun, quite clubby. The location is very convenient in town and sets on a hill so no street noise. I got... More

A lot of good things here ... easy reservations, easy check in, CLEAN rooms / hallways / lobby, HUGE breakfast selection, 2 different newspapers, friendly staff. The one downside is that we could hear road traffic at night (jake brake's). Would definitely stay here again! *and being right next to Otto's is a bonus!

Beautifully updated rooms, comfortable beds and pillows, in room fridge very nice but pretty small. Extremely professional and friendly staff. Indoor pool nice, clean but a little small.

I stayed here on business the night they were celebrating their remodel reopening. Rooms are nicely appointed, but the beds lacked headboards which seemed odd. The facility seemed very clean and in good shape. Price was reasonable. The office/front desk staff was pleasant, but I cannot say the same of housekeeping.
