Nittany Lion Inn Named One of America’s Top College Hotels

Friday June 1, 2012

Along with only 19 other hotels in the country, our own Nittany Lion Inn was dubbed one of the greatest college town hotels by American Express Travel + Leisure Magazine.  

The magazine, known for its prestige in travel-related news, recognizes the 223 luxurious blue-and-white guest rooms, the shuttles that take guests to Beaver Stadium starting three hours before football games, and the hotel’s convenient on-campus location. In fact, The Inn is only one of a select few featured hotels that is situated on its college’s campus.  

According to the article, each selected hotel represents the personality of its respective college. The Inn is no exception with its Colonial-style décor and architecture that mirrors the longstanding tradition of Penn State.  

Some of the other university hotels that made the list were the Arizona Inn at the University of Arizona in Tucson, The Study at Yale Hotel in New Haven, CT, and The Blackwell at Ohio State University in Columbus.
