My son graduated in December and we wanted to finally experience the Nittany Lion Inn. We had high expectations and our weekend stay exceeded them.
Virtually every staff member actually seemed to enjoy working there. It was almost impossible for us to open the building front door ourselves --there was almost always someone there holding it open for us.
The building and grounds were decorated for Christmas and were beautiful. We had an extra large room with a separate couch and seating area.
The hotel shuttle made getting around campus a breeze, and when one of my chidlren came in by bus at 10:30 pm, because she called the shuttle, we did not have to immediately leave our friends to pick her up. When we went to a bar the shuttle dropped us off and picked us up shortly after we called.
We had the breakfast and the Sunday brunch buffets and felt they were reasonably priced and very good.
Whiskers was a clubby and reasonably priced place to have a drink, a burger or an after dinner cup of coffee with friends and family.
I would suggest the Inn for anyone who would enjoy a beautiful hotel with excellent service.
