This is a newer property, so everything is still gleaming. The rooms were spacious and thoughtfully designed with lots of little details to make your stay more comfortable. Outlets that are accessible, the wall lamps by the bed include usb charging ports, a closet with hangers, hooks and shelves, and a well laid out kitchen.
There is a very well appointed fitness center, and a nice looking pool as well. Breakfast is the typical free buffet fare (hot and cold), arranged in a way to make it easy to find what you’d like and not crash in to other people. The lobby had some nice little nooks if you need a place to visit with other people....in town for a wedding, we spent an evening tucked away by a fireplace in comfortable chairs.
The staff was friendly, available and accommodating, the front desk clerk even chased me down in the parking lot to hand me a charger that had been forgotten in my room (housekeeping brought it to the desk and then she ran it out to me). The breakfast lady was happy to replenish items for us as we straggled in at the end of breakfast. We watched her help two little girls prepare breakfast to bring back to their room. The rooms were nice and clean, it’s rare for me to be so comfortable in a hotel.
I’m the type of person who does a ton of research before booking anywhere, and value is important to me. This property ticked all the boxes for me, value, comfort, a wee bit of luxury, thoughtful and useful amenities, and close to everything you could need, this place really does have it all.
Friendly and helpful people

Typical TownePlace; nothing special but nothing wrong either. Checked out and had to come back; they were very helpful and accommodating. Rates were reasonable and included the breakfast buffet. Location was convenient to local highways.

Gotta love that it's a new hotel (still has that new hotel smell). But beyond that it's evident that they put a bit of thought into the design. I stayed one night in a 1BR queen suite and some of the things that stood out for me were,
Just enough square footage
Tons of closet space
Very comfortable bed and bedding
Quiet a/c units, w/ constant fan option
Full kitchen with pots/plates etc
Wired internet ports
Abundance of charging outlets
Quiet walls and ceilings
Plus it's the little things that show attention to detail like,
Hooks by the door for hanging things as you prepare to leave (garment bags etc)
Ottoman on wheels with removable tray surface.
Moveable tray at the couch
Tons of drawer and cabinet storage
Cons? Only one- I wish the shower head was a little higher. I'm only 5'11" and I still had to duck a little to get right under it.
Breakfast area is spacious and includes meeting areas
Breakfast choices were average for being inclusive. Hot water urn for tea had a coffee taste to it, not good if you're picky (like I am) about your tea.
Multiple quiet and efficient elevators.
Larger than average workout room with lots of equipment including free weights.
Pool looked large enough to take laps.
Adjacent to VA Hospital, minutes from downtown, convenient to shopping, restaurants, highways. Not a noisy area either.
Staff: very nice friendly people.
Bottom line; I'll stay here the next time I'm in Altoona area. Great for both business and casual travelers.
Great hotel with extra perks

This hotel opened 6 moths ago so all the rooms are updated and have a great modern vibe. The breakfast was good and has a lot of multiple options to please all. There's even an outdoor barbecue eating place that features comfy seating, an outdoor lighting and a gas fireplace structure that's really cool. There's an indoor pool and a nice fitness center for those who want to get a workout in. For those who need laundry service the guest laundry facilities are brand new and very nice.
The front desk was very helpful and made our stay very comfortable. Lastly, they are a pet friendly hotel for a small pet (dog, cat or bird) for an additional fee. Overall, we are pleased with our accommodations and the service of the employees who work here. Definitely a place to stay at in you are in the area.
What a spectacular place, we couldn't ask for anything better

The place is new and the rooms are fantastic. The front desk staff were so helpful with any question we had and were smiling and pleasant. We arrived quite early because of the train schedule and no rooms were clean yet (we were 3 hours early, so it was ouur problem not theirs. They offered to store our luggage and page us as soon as a room became free. They did exactly that and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was terrific, hot, diversified and clean. We will stay there again to be sure.
