Check in was fine and my bed was comfortable. Microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker in the room. The furniture in the room is getting beat and it could use some refreshing. It looks worn and not fresh. Used the Bistro in the morning and although the young lady working there was polite, she was overwhelmed, so the wait was...

I stayed here 2 nights for a friend's wedding. The reception was held at the adjacent Blair County Convention Center. The lobby area is quite modern, with lots of room. My room was spacious - 2 queen beds, an easy chair and ottoman and the usual desk and dresser. Nice sliding doors open onto a balcony - would have been...

Made a side trip home by stopping in Shanksville PA, so did not make it as far as planned. Stopped in Altoona PA and found a Marriott hotel next to their convention center. Room was neat and clean. It met our needs. However, they do not provide a free breakfast and their restaurant served pub food.

My family and I stayed 2 nights on our way to visit family for Thanksgiving. It was late, and we didn't want to battle the snow storm. Sheryl at the front desk was the sweetest lady!

Let me first start out by saying the front desk staff are very pleasant and genuinely care about the guests. Unfortunately that's where it all ends with this hotel. I travel frequently and prefer to stay at Marriott properties. The other Courtyard Marriott's I stay at are always great. The Courtyard Marriott in Altoona has dated rooms and furnishings, dirty...

Stayed here for a Penn State game, it's about 45 minutes away from the stadium. Everything from the room, coffee, and food was overpriced for the quality. The room included a fridge and microwave, hidden in a worn cabinet/tv stand. Served breakfast until 11am, made to order. However we waited over 20 minutes for (cold) eggs, hash browns, meat, and...

Very nice accommodations and really comfortable beds. Decor is very nice. The hotel bar was nicely stocked and they even had beer available from the convenience area. Too bad is was too chilly to take advantage of the outdoor grill area. Looking forward to going back again.
