    I liked the open space of the room

    The shower temperature was hard to control, which was uncomfortable for me and my husband but hard with the kids.

    Very pleasant accommodations. Our room was clean, and the beds were extremely comfortable. Staff, especially in the restaurants, were very friendly and helpful.

    Parking was a bit tedious since we had to park in the parking garage some distance away. Normally this wouldn't have been such a problem, but it happened to be a particularly rainy weekend, so we got quite wet going back and forth from the hotel to the garage.

    Restaurant evening meal very good. Free parking. Nice historic building.

    Breakfast selection was poor. Bar area was set up for dining, nowhere comfortable to sit and chill with a bottle of wine. Safety deposit boxes within secure room need replacing, hotel staff all struggled to open ours and had to call maintenance to break in. State College is pretty but not all that much to do there.

    The accommodations were superb, the most comfy bed I've slept in a long time away from home. I was there for my daughter's orientation at Penn State and you were so close and highly recommended by a friend who always stayed there when her daughter was there. The food was excellent! I ate in the main dining room for dinner and for breakfast. Eggs were made to perfection!

    Everything was perfect

    I like The property is very nice. A jewel in the middle of penn state university. Very traditional decor and well kept and clean. Will stay there again for sure.

    Honesty valet parking was disappointing but that was my only complain. They need to step up and have more bodies in valet. It was not even busy so you can imagine if it was!

    Absolutely beautiful property and convenient location. We will definitely be staying here again.

    Parking is a little bit sparse, but there is complimentary valet service to handle that issue, so just make sure you have cash to tip.
