The family stayed for Arts Fest weekend 2015, and the room was perfect. We had two queen beds and a roll away. All the finishes are very nice everywhere in the hotel. Girls really enjoyed the pool which is a bit bigger than the standard indoor pool you'll find at a hotel. The beds were perfect. Normally "at my age",...

The hotel rooms have been newly redecorated and very well in a modern, comfortable style. The rooms are large with high ceilings and pleasing furnishings. The staff is very well trained and helpful. The cafe bar is cool and fun, quite clubby. The location is very convenient in town and sets on a hill so no street noise. I got...

A lot of good things here ... easy reservations, easy check in, CLEAN rooms / hallways / lobby, HUGE breakfast selection, 2 different newspapers, friendly staff. The one downside is that we could hear road traffic at night (jake brake's). Would definitely stay here again! *and being right next to Otto's is a bonus!

Beautifully updated rooms, comfortable beds and pillows, in room fridge very nice but pretty small. Extremely professional and friendly staff. Indoor pool nice, clean but a little small. On site Starbucks coffee was nice! An earlier review said the walls are a little thin, and I can agree with that. Also many of the available TV channels wouldn't come in....

I stayed here on business the night they were celebrating their remodel reopening. Rooms are nicely appointed, but the beds lacked headboards which seemed odd. The facility seemed very clean and in good shape. Price was reasonable. The office/front desk staff was pleasant, but I cannot say the same of housekeeping. Beware of the SLOW elevators and a rush of...

I have stayed in State College several times now; I have to say that this facility is probably my favorite of the Marriott genre.
