Beautiful, clean, and classy.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
I was very pleased with the ambience of this hotel. There are less expensive places to stay in State College, but since we were in town for a conference at the Penn Stater, it made sense to stay right there. The staff was friendly and professional, room was extremely clean, and the Gardens Restaurant was A+++! We are!!

Convenient to Stadium and Penn State

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, close to stadium, shuttle service, gift shop
Cons: away from town a bit
Stayed here 2 nights to attend the first Penn State game and visit our son. The room was clean and the landscaping outside made the view more enjoyable (instead of looking at a roof) We were in the conference side of hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. We had room service and ate at the restaurant for breakfast. Sunday brunch looked very nice for the price but we were not that hungry. Unfortunately we had to pick up other people at another hotel and my son and therefore couldn't utilize the shuttle to stadium. Would have been so convenient and free. Of course, the price for the hotel is expensive during football season and other Penn State events as are others in the area.

Oh no....bedbugs!

Pros: Free Internet
The hotel was pretty nice. Not over the top luxurious but very nice. Problem is that I was eaten alive by bedbugs or some kind of biting insect in the room. I woke up with bites on my face, legs, and arms. I notified the management at the hotel desk but I don't think they took me seriously.
