“Possibly The Best Courtyard In The Chain...”
Reviewed November 27, 2004

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.
