This hotel is on the campus of Penn State University. it is, they said, run by the College of Hospitality and judging by the eager young faces, staffed by its students. In our view every single staffer we saw or dealt with should be awarded a PHD.
Walk through the front door into an elegantly appointed lobby with a fifteen foot Christmas tree and a roaring fire. Grab a shiny red apple. You'll like it.
Wake up hungry at three in the morning like my old friend did.
He went down to the lobby to ask for a little advice. The lady was happy to direct him to the closest all night diner, but. . she offered to make him some toast and coffee! They had a nice chat, he said.
The condition of the historic building is sterling. Nothing I saw, zero, zilch, nothing, was in need of repair. The University must have a graduate program. in hotel maintenance.
