Great hotel on campus. Stayed in a suite - lots of space and very nice bathroom. Seemed very safe during Covid.

Very nice hotel in perfect location next to campus. Fresh renovation

Liked being close to Penn State and restaurants. Very clean. Disliked construction next door and the fact that anyone could enter the hotel to any floor through the elevators.

Very clean and quiet rooms. But confusing how to enter building and lobby. They need more staff at door and reception.

Nice update from atherton. Nicely decorated. Very loud outside from construction and heard lots of noise rom room next door

We usually stay at the Hyatt when we visit our daughter t

Recent remodel looks great. I’m sure the elevators are on the list to be updated but they definitely need it.

liked the downtown location, did not like the parking fee (though waived because my room wasn't available)

great location & clean rooms! Would recommend. Wish parking wasn't extra though.

loved it all staff was very helpful and very informed.

The uniqueness of the property. I have stayed at the Atherton, the former hotel on this site, many of times. Love the decor and collegiality of the Graduate

Hotel is newly renovated with all new, stylish furniture, and fresh new towels and appliances. Large meeting/sitting areas that look like studies. However, still getting parts of the hotel set up (i.e. vending machines). Getting in and out of parking lot (even understanding how to navigate it) is a challenge, esp. with construction presently going on nearby. Near restaurants, shops, and campus. Note: it is one block from fire dept but I heard sirens only once in 3 days.
