Hotel is clean. Staff very helpful and very friendly. Room was very spacious. This was my second time staying and I will stay here again when I visit State College.

Clean rooms, great location,wonderful staff, helpful front desk. I will continue to stay here for my annual state conference at PSU.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from elevators if you are a light sleeper. Front desk has always accommodated me...

No concerns here. Standard CY, with all that you need and expect. Front desk staff was very pleasent and helpful during check in and check out, revamped lobby, with starbucks bistro, workout space, pool, etc. Couple of places to eat within walking which is a plus.

Like many of the courtyards where I have stayed, the lobby area has been freshened at this location.. I can't say the same about the rooms. Other than the obligatory flat screen tv and free wi-fi the rooms are a bit dated.
Overall the hotel was clean, everything worked and as usual the staff was excellent. A couple of restaurants within a short distance including one right outside the property that you could easily walk to. Overall I'd give this location A 4 in relation to other hotels in general but it's prob a 3 on my own 'courtyrard' scale.

This property did a great job coordinating our hockey team. Christina B (sales coordinator) ensured all was done to accommodate our group, and was diligent up to the day of the event. Location is ideal for anything in and around State College, and well maintained.

Room Tip: Book far in advance.

If you're visiting State College and are looking for a hotel to match the quaintness of the warm, fuzzy town - look no further. With a tre-chic lobby, beyond friendly staff, charming bistro and spacious, clean rooms - it was the perfect hotel for a visit to Penn State. Not to mention they also had an indoor pool and gym! I'll admit that I predicted that it wouldn't be that nice, but, I'll rave on how it surpassed and exceeded my expectations. The location is good. It's a microsecond drive away from the campus and there's a Ruby Tuesday literally right next door in case you wanna go out and aren't feeling the Bistro. The Bistro is really good though. I had a great experience at this hotel from the second I walked in late in the afternoon and was welcomed by this guy who was probably a student at Penn State. Friendliest concierge person I've ever met. Enjoy your stay!

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have balconies. Depends what you're into.

Excellent check-in experience at 2 a.m. one morning after arriving 13 hours earlier than planned. Brian, at the desk, was helpful in getting us checked in even though my husband and I were not due to check-in the next night. He gave us a good rate as a Marriott Rewards participant. Then, when we extended our stay a third night, he adjusted the third night price so that we would not have to pay full freight. (We had paid for our original one-night stay with points.)

The room was comfortable and clean. Lobby serves our beloved Starbucks coffee and has a good assortment of breakfast items to purchase.

The hotel was situated approximately 2 miles from the Penn State field hockey pitch (our destination), the Bryce Jordan Center and various sports fields including soccer. It was a straight drive on University Drive.

Good value. Wonderful staff that was bent on getting us the best value.
