There was nothing wrong with the hotel and nothing exceptional either. About what you'd expect, but i felt it was overpriced. We ordered real breakfast from the onsite restaurant and it was average. Overall...ok.

This was a great hotel for the area and a week long stay. It was comfortable, quiet and the staff was friendly. Being in the area for business, we extended to make it a vacation to visit friends and family since we are native to the area. I immediately had a wow factor when I walked into the lobby. The...

We stayed here for a family reunion and they upgraded us to a suite room overlooking the mountains. We enjoyed the accommodations. The bed was great which is typically the case with Marriott properties. However, the pillows were foam, very high and way to firm. This is out of the ordinary for the Marriott brand. We found them so uncomfortable!...

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms large and modern. Beds new and comfortable. We had a fab made-to-order breakfast. A little pricey, but worth it. Location was good. Easy access to all parts of town including the historical route to the famous Horseshoe Curve.

I've stayed here a couple times over the past few months and found it to be a suitable hotel for the very short time I find myself in the room and in the Altoona area.

Just go straight to Traveler's Photos and take a look. Water fountain water (even after running it for a while) was oily and milky.
