Lovely hotel

Posted May 13, 2014
The Atherton is a great hotel right in the middle of downtown State College. Penn State is across the street and it's in easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and pharmacies. Underground parking is convenient and the staff was very nice and helpful.

Great location, could use ongoing maintenance.

Posted Mar 17, 2014
I would recommend everyone stay here, it is walking distance to most everything you would want to see. Brave Stadium/BJC is a long walk or short bus/cab ride. My only suggestion would be better ongoing maintenance. Seems like the room we stayed in hadn't been touched in 8-10 years. AC unit doesn't have a thermostat, just "hotter" or "colder" which is a little dated. That being said I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Very comfortable stay at the Atherton

Posted Feb 17, 2014
Cons: "Resort fee" $4....not explained nor do I understand what special service I received for this fee. Also, a $7/day parking fee.
Location: Great downtown location
Room & bed very comfortable and clean. Food served in the lobby tavern was quite good and reasonably priced.

Nice hotel. Convenient to everything

Posted Feb 16, 2014
It was a very nice hotel in the center of it all. The staff was very nice and helpful. Requested extra pillows and within 10mins had them. Rooms were clean and large enough for the 4 of us. The only thing I didnt like was the room didn't have a fridge. But we managed. Overall would stay there again. Go PSU!
