Hotel Details

Half a block from Penn State, and offering HDTVs and a free local shuttle, the elegant Atherton Hotel, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member, gets kudos for its location and amenities. The non-smoking Atherton Hotel knows good hospitality, whether it's the free newspaper at your door, the complimentary shoeshine service or the shuttle that take you to the airport or anywhere else within five miles. The lobby is among the most elegant in State College, with rich draperies and sparkling chandeliers. There's an on-site fitness room and passes to local gyms. The 150 rooms have a traditional decor but up-to-the-minute amenities like Wi-Fi access and HDTVs with instant-access movies and games. All rooms have work desks with executive chairs, so you can always finish that last-minute paperwork. There are a restaurant and lounge on the premises, and room service is available. Underground parking is available for a fee. A stone's throw from the Penn State campus, the Atherton Hotel is within walking distance of plenty of restaurants as well as popular attractions like Beaver Stadium and the Palmer Museum of Art. If you're a golfer, the university's two courses are within a short drive. If you're interested in battles fought in this historic part of the country, the Pennsylvania Military Museum is about four miles east. University Park Airport is six miles north. With a "prime location" that is "right in the center of town," the Atherton Hotel, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member, gets praise from our guests who rave about its "gorgeous lobby" and "luxurious" atmosphere.
