The staff at this Hilton Garden Inn are exceptional. Very helpful! They always go the extra mile to help us provide an excellent event. The newly renovated rooms are very nice, as well. The food is delicious, although a little pricey.

We were there for two nights for a family reunion. When we return to State College, we always stay at the Hilton Garden Inn. As expected from prior stays, we had a wonderful stay. First we arrived early, but they had a beautiful (remolded) room for us on a quiet part of the hotel. The room was spacious, exceedingly clean,... More

My bridal shower was held here. The conference room was set up beautifully and the staff members were willing to help with whatever we needed. Of course the shower was beautiful because of family and friends who attended but the staff and cleanliness made it all the more better. Would recommend the Hilton Garden Inn State College for anyone needing... More

The front desk staff was so nice in spite of the disgusting rooms. The lobby was so nice. I felt so sorry for the front desk staff.

We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn State College for two nights and found the room and the overall experience quite comfortable. The hotel is well-located, less than ten minutes from the restaurants downtown. In East College Avenue's other direction, gas and a Giant supermarket are even closer. The room's layout is traditional, with useful amenities like a fridge, hair... More

Hotel is nice, but average. The room that I was given was recently renovated and it was clean, more than enough space, and nicely appointed. The staff was very nice and efficient at check-in/out. Parking was easy and plentiful. The elevator was broken, but that sort of thing happens and I do not hold it against them. The location is... More
