I have had the opportunity to stay in my hometown hotel a couple of times over the years when we loss power/heat. However, we do frequent this place just for its amazing food. This hotel is blessed with a fantastic restaurant call Harrison's Wine Country Grill. If you look up their menu online, you will see what I mean. This established restaurant once existed in town but then moved into the Hilton Garden Inn some years back. The hotel staff, like at any Hilton Garden Inn, are friendly and pr... Read more

Even though the hotel is in renovations, our hotel stay was great. There were a view minor inconveniences because of the renovations, but nothing that the staff wasn't aware of. They were extremely helpful to assist with any challenge the renovations caused. We will stay at this hotel our next stay in State College.

I go to this hotel quarterly each year for work. The last time that I went to Hotel was under construction so guys did not have access to the pool, hot tub, or gym but guests were allowed to go to a nearby gym. I did not visit the gym at that time. I am in high hopes that next time that I go it will be beautifully renovated. There are a lot of nearby restaurants and shopping centers, its in a very nice location.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Western PA. Our room was immaculate and very comfortable! We slept well in the king sized bed with fluffy pillows! The Kureig coffee maker was a big plus for us also! The 2nd floor of the hotel was being renovated and we stayed on the first floor, so we were unable to use the elevator which is a problem for us, but despite that fact, we were very satisfied with our stay!

I chose this hotel as it was one of the recommended hotels for a conference i was attending. I was very happy with the stay. The staff was very helpful when needed and the room was kept very clean. Having a microwave and fridge in the room was very convenient. I would stay here again if I was in this area for sure. Only complaint is the network wasn't great. It would seem to boot my devices off a little too quickly for my liking, but when connected the network worked great.

We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn State College for two nights and found the room and the overall experience quite comfortable.

My bridal shower was held here. The conference room was set up beautifully and the staff members were willing to help with whatever we needed. Of course the shower was beautiful because of family and friends who attended but the staff and cleanliness made it all the more better. Would recommend the Hilton Garden Inn State College for anyone needing a conference room or even a clean and cozy room to stay.

I drove in to Pennsylvania from Ohio for a baby shower, this hotel has the friendliest staff ever! It probably is one of cleanest hotels I've ever been to! The staff went above and beyond to help with set up and tear down for the shower. The rooms were very clean! I could have eaten off the floor. From the moment I walked in from the time I left loved all the staff and the hotel! I recommend anyone going to state college to stay here!

All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Check in and out was quick and easy. Our room was neat and clean and we enjoyed the breakfast buffet in the lobby.

The front desk staff was so nice in spite of the disgusting rooms. The lobby was so nice. I felt so sorry for the front desk staff. The musty smell of the room, burning smell of air conditioner, the maid needs to have someone teach her how to clean a shower and make a bed, the construction men need to use common sense and not start hammering at 7:15AM! The beds were not comfortable like other hilton hotels I have stayed at

Stayed for 1 night in a room with king bed. They are renovating but we had one of the newly renovated rooms on the 4th floor which was very nice. Speedy check in and check out. Pool and hot tub were great. Clean and well maintained. My only gripe is that there are no net curtains in the room now. There are only black out curtains. Otherwise the renovated room was large, clean and comfortable. All of the staff members we met were friendly and helpful. Would stay here again if back in the area.

The location was ideal for our needs. Our two rooms were clean, comfortable, and attractive. The in-house restaurant had an interesting menu backed up by tasty foods.

When staying in State College, there are many hotel choices, including all of the expected brands. I was traveling with my family so choose this hotel based upon the availability of rooms with 2 queen beds (all others I checked had doubles).

Everything was clean, new and the beds were quite comfortable. Staff was great and parking good. I... Read more

I'm a Hilton Honors member and have stayed at numerous Hilton's over the years, too many to count in fact, and this one has to rank on the low end of that list. The property appears a little shabby and the rooms kind of reflect that.

The Country Inn and Suites appears much nicer than this place and next time I think I would stay there. The rooms are... Read more

Hotel is going through a renovation and will be AWESOME like the staff already is. They're almost done and it'll be worth the wait. I've been staying at this hotel multiple times a year for the past 3 years (daughter attends PSU) and have seen it change for the better. Mandy the manager is GREAT! The staff is always friendly and the food is pretty good too. With the renovations almost complete, I would rank this hotel as one of the top 3 to stay for any visit to PSU.

On football Saturdays they offer a shuttle to the stadium that is very convenient. A great place on a football weekend!

I don't know how you can keep housekeeping staff. With the Executive Housekeeper Kara the way she talked to the housekeeper was unreal. If I was that woman I would have left. I think she needs some training on how to talk to people. Housekeeping is a hard job and for her to belittle the staff that's just horrible. She should be ashamed of herself. The room was clean. Beds a little to soft for my taste. Food was good at Harrison's. Hotel also has a shuttle which makes going up town a breeze.
