The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel The Nittany Lion Inn

About Us

Penn State Hospitality Services welcomes you to our beautiful University Park Campus. If you’re on campus or in town for a game, concert, or special event, we invite you to enjoy the comfort and convenience of our hotels. Whether you choose the colonial-style Nittany Lion Inn or the understated luxury of The Penn Stater, you’ll experience the best in hospitality.  

The Nittany Lion Inn is a Penn State landmark, rich in history and tradition and a member of the National Trust Historic Hotels of America. As a proud holder of the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Rating, the Inn features upscale accommodations and an extensive array of amenities combined with top-notch hospitality, service, and attention to detail. Nestled in the northwest corner of campus, the Inn serves as a travelers’ haven as well as a popular gathering place for Penn State alumni. In fact, Penn State’s twelfth president, Eric Walker, called the Inn “Penn State’s Living Room” because of its comfortable and welcoming environment.  

The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel is central Pennsylvania’s largest, most flexible, and technologically sophisticated hotel. We’re proud to be a premier setting for conferences, meetings, and events, large and small. But we’re about more than conferences. Whether you’re here for business or pleasure, you can count on personalized service and attention to detail. From front desk to concierge service to event planners, we go out of our way to make you feel welcome. Although we’re located in a beautiful country setting with stunning views of Nittany Valley, we’re just minutes away from the heart of the action, in town and on campus.
