There's a lot of negative sounding reviews of the Genetti on Tripadvisor, please look at the ones that were found helpful. I think some reviewers are looking for a 5 star hotel in Williamsport. Sorry, the town's not big enough to support something like that. But what it does offer is a "grand, old hotel" thats been well taken care of through the years, and represents a good value in that market.
I grew up in Williamsport and the Genetti (known as the Lycoming Hotel in the "old days") was always known for quality. It was the place that anybody that was somebody stayed at when they were passing through. From rock stars to movie stars to politicians, the Genetti has seen them all.
Since my mother has moved out of her home, my wife and I started staying at the Genetti during our trips to Williamsport. We have always received good, comfortable, and clean accomidations when staying here. The prices have almost always been below those of the competitors, and it offers something that none of the others do. True suites, with full walls, sitting rooms etc. in a convenient downtown location. Restaurants in (safe) walking distance. A Wegmans down the street. Shopping nearby, and close to the on-off ramp. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. Not at all "snobby" like some of those you run into in "modern" luxury hotels.
But don't just trust me, check other the other reviews.
