This is a very quiet, very clean hotel. Two adults and two children shared a room with two queen beds and a sofa bed. The room was spacious enough that we weren't tripping over each other. The beds were very comfortable and even the kids slept pretty good. They also enjoyed the pool. I would give this location a very... More

For being a Marriott this place has a lot to be desired of!! Wouldn't expect mold on a shower curtain and ceiling!! And they tried to paint over the mold! Curb appeal is very nice, under neath not so much!!

Stayed here one night, clean, quiet, would have rated excellent if they had provided breakfast, but we found a nice place in Altoona. Primati Bros for happy hour was just around the corner, would have been nice to be able to walk there, could have had another margarita

Great location for the convention center. Friendly staff. Comfortable beds and quiet location. Would recommend and will stay here again if we come this way. Liked the counter height sink in our room. Can not think of much more to add to get to the minimum required characters.., oh we ate at Jethro's and would recommend that.

Stayed for a night. Room showed its age, bathroom door was swollen and didn't want to close. The walls were thin and you could hear everyone on each side and the loud walker above us. Wood frame structure. Not much to eat nearby.

The hotel was very nice and clean. The decor in the lobby was modern and colorful. Desk attendants were nice, especially Kelsey (male) who checked us in. Quiet, and away from traffic. One neg. aspect was the entrance needs to be lit up at night, as well as the sign for where you turn.
