Featured Lodging: Hampton Inn & Suites
The Hampton Inn & Suites in State College at Williamsburg Square manages to capture that charm of a historic inn with all the convenience of a modern hotel. Located just outside of State College, the Hampton Inn & Suites is just minutes away from downtown State College, Penn State University and the Bryce Jordan Center. The hotel is located just off Route 322 allowing easy travel to all Happy Valley destinations.
The 71-room hotel offers all that you expect from a Hampton family property – clean, well appropriated rooms; complimentary hot breakfast, free high speed internet access and Hampton's “best rate” guarantee – but there are also a lot of little things that make this property a favorite for visitors. There’s an ATM on the property, as well as a convenience store. The complimentary beverage area is stocked all day long. If you’re in town on business, the hotel offers audio/visual equipment rental, a large conference room, business center and photocopying service. The hotel also offers an outdoor pool and exercise room.
Inside the guest rooms, the little extras continue. The beds are some of the comfiest around (part of Clean and Fresh Hampton Bed™ program) with luxurious linens and both soft and firm pillows. The rooms boast 32" flat-screen LCD televisions, easy to operate alarm clock/radios and nice work spaces regardless of room size. If you prefer not to work at the desk, you can use the convenient lapdesk instead. There are two phones and two phone lines in the room with voice mail. You'll also enjoy the convenience of having a coffee maker and iron/ironing board in your room. In the bathroom you'll enjoy fluffy towels, a WaterPik showerhead and curved shower rod that allows more light and space in the shower.
While the hotel does not have a restaurant on the property, they do serve a complimentary hot breakfast every morning, as well as pre-packed “on the run” breakfast to go bags. Outback Steakhouse and The Olive Garden are both located across the parking lot from the hotel, and Outback delivers to hotel guests. With its convenient locations, dozens more restaurants are just a short drive away.
