I attended a conference at the Penn Stater and was impressed all around. The hotel was modern, clean and well maintained. The restaurants were good, efficient and reasonably priced. What particular set the location apart was the conference facilities and the service. Great food, friendly staff and all was efficiently handled. All around a good experience. Location is 10 minutes...

FOOD was outstanding. Service was hit or miss but the food! I will dream of their specialty cocktails, their thick bacon, their juice pretzel chicken, and more! Service in the restaurants were hit or miss but the housekeeping staff was great.

If you plan on eating at the hotel be aware that they are not very accommodating to those on restrictive diets.I am on a strict plant based diet and avoid gluten. Items like vegetables were commonly not marked vegetarian (I was told by the attendant he thought they were cooked in chicken stock). A slaw was the only item ever...

I stayed at the Penn Stater for a conference recently. I has a corner room with a beautiful view. The room was very clean and all the facilities worked well. The Keurig is a nice touch. The conference center is very convenient and well organized. I noticed that quite a few conferences were in progress at the same time. There...

We have stayed here several times, most recently in May 2017. The staff is very cordial and professional. Our room a king, was quite comfortable, bathroom a little cramped. The complex has restaurants and a sports bar on site. Had the buffet breakfast on this trip and it was more than satisfying. Only negative is the layout is somewhat weird....

I don't do extensive business travelling to conference centers, but have been to a few. The Penn Stater is definitely one of the nicest that I've seen. Modern, clean, and relatively convenient to downtown (about a 5 minute drive). Did not actually use the conference facilities - just the hotel. Also took advantage of the in-house bar/restaurant (Legends) for a...

Great facility. Plenty of parking. Easy to move through the building with a great amount of fast elevators to efficiently move conf attendees and guests. Gym was excellently equipped and the lap pool was another nice treat. Room was comfy, could've used a small microwave. Bed was clean and plenty of hot water. Conference rooms were exemplary finished and ranged...

I've been going to State College for 30+ years and this was my first time staying at the Penn Stater. I'll start off with the property: It's in fantastic condition, it feels and looks new. The front desk team is friendly, and the lobby is welcoming (the fireplace and seating area is a nice place to wait for someone). The...
