Nice place overall.
All went well. Nice room etc.. Only negative it was a football weekend after staying Friday night and we were leaving around 9AM w/do not disturb sign in door. Although check out was 11AM we were pushed out the room by housekeeping although check out was not until 11AM. Also $8 a day for parking was unexpected.

Great hotel great location
Great hotel to be in walking distance of campus. Wish price of PSU hotels were not so high because I would come visit more often. Great to have a parking garage and leave your car and walk.

Good3.0 / 5
I stayed here for one night during Arts Fest with girlfriends. It was a fine location and the room was somewhat spacious and served its purpose. The decor is very traditional in style so it looks dated. Cons: slow elevators. Only one vehicle per room. Low hanging light sconces in the hallways are problematic if you aren't short.

Not the best stay this time...
This wasn't my first visit to the Atherton, but it wasn't my best. First, let me say that I love the feeling of this hotel. The staff is always friendly and helpful and the lounge a great place to get a glass of wine or something to eat. The common areas of this hotel are beautiful. I was disappointed this time, however, for a number of reasons. First, I didn't expect, nor was it mentioned, that I would be billed for parking. I would have liked to have known that. Secondly, the air condition unit in the room ran constantly and at times sounded like a jack hammer. Add that to the lack of room darkening shades (only blinds) and I was up to face the day at 5:30 a.m.-not what I had planned.
