In a college town (Penn State University) hotels often show signs of wear and tear. Not this hotel. A second pleasant surprise was the meeting space and the attentive food service personnel who tended to the needs of our small group of eight.
The room was clean and quite by accident I parked at the closest door! The halls were quiet and I did not hear any noise form the fitness room or pool which were immediately across that tranquil hall.
The restaurant - operated by a different entrepreneur was OUTSTANDING. (See separate review). The restaurant "catered" our group lunches & breaks. The restaurant was also the venue for the "included in the price - please don;t tell me its FREE" buffet breakfast. It had the basics and real SERVERS cleared the tables!
My support person goofed on my reservation and neither the front desk nor Hilton Rewards could undue the misallocation of the program points. This was a disappointment, not a disaster.
I was at this property as a meeting participant, but when wearing my meeting planner hat and in need of a Center County venue for a small group, I would definitely look here.
