If you are planning to stay in State College, the Penn Stater Hotel and conference center is the place to stay! The front desk staff is the most helpful staff you will find at a hotel. They are in place to help you in many different ways from room assignments to local dining.

Great venue for a Winter Conference. Excellent meeting facilities, really nice and very clean and comfortable rooms. Better choices for food in town or bring your own. Location very convenient for out of town travellers.

Hotel promised shuttle service to an event, and a reservation with the front desk was made the day before for the trip. At the appointed time the hotel refused to take us saying they had too many people already. If so, why did they take our reservation and tell us in advance we would have transportation? All they had to...

Room was large and clean, bed was comfortable, service was good. Nice conference amenities and a nice bar/restaurant. The real bonus was the van service to drop off and pick up almost anywhere on campus. I'll stay here again on the next trip to Penn State. Ski-U-Mah!

We have been coming to the Penn Stater for several years and have always had a great time, this year destroyed all of the positive experiences due to manager Eric. He did not recognize our group of 60+ people as a group of people anticipating a enjoyable time with commeradity, instead he treated us derogatory and was not accommodating, the...

The ample meeting room space and food service is excellent - great meals and great snacks. The staff is not as flexible as one would hope when determining snack breaks. Access to the hotel rooms and the meeting room space is not easy to get around when carrying luggage and display materials. No good parking close to the meeting rooms...

I was here for a conference. The bed was comfortable and the room was nicely furnished. My room had 2 queens and a small sofa and an arm chair and a desk. Nice amount of space for you to accommodate colleagues to review presentations. At the time I was there (not during football season), the room was reasonably priced (around...

Stayed here since the conference I attended also held at the same hotel. Hotel room was nice and clean. Service was great and I was able to check-in and get my room by noon when I arrived there. The conference center service was good too. I had a good stay there and I always prefer to stay there whenever I...

The Penn Stater is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at for business and leisure. The hotel staff is super friendly and they are helpful throughout the stay. One perk to the this hotel over the hotel located on campus is that there is a pool for guests. It is always nice to use a pool during...

“Mini-fridge is large enough and cold enough - maybe too cold - to store plenty of food. Bring your own microwave and "camp out" in your own room for best overall value.”
