The Genetti is a splendid-looking, old-established hotel in the heart of Williamsport. No other hotel has its history or its grandeur but inside it doesn't quite live up to its exterior. The rooms are comfortable but feel like a cross between an old motel and an historic establishment with styrofoam ceilings against quite elegant old furniture. The beds are very comfortable with a range of pillow softeness. The shower is great and everything works as it should. Breakfast comes with the room. It's a typical breakfast buffet in a slightly southern American style. The items could be hotter but the pancakes are really good. Some plain yoghurt and fruit other than melons would be good. The coffee, from an urn, is surprisingly good and the single host/attendant is charming and helpful. There's a toaster and a variety of breads with butter and two jelly-type jams. Non-jelly would be good. However, as it is the only place to get a breakfast downtown, it is well appreciated. The local newspaper is beside reception. It would be good to have copies in the somewhat dingy breakfast room as well - it doubles as a bar and restaurant at other times. I will probably stay again.
