The Marriott Courtyard in Altoona, PA sits atop a hill that overlooks a busy section of commercial real estate and highway. But when we drive up the hill to the familiar architecture of a Courtyard, the hub-bub quickly falls away. This hotel is our home away from home when we visit relatives in central PA. We would never consider staying...

Stayed here while traveling on weekend. Hotel is fine and up to Marriott standards. Place is located near the convention center. Hotel was clean, room was spotless, staff cordial. Did not eat there. Only thing is that I thought the rates were rather high for the area. Hotel was busy, hard to find a parking spot. Would stay again.
