Graduate Hotel State College – PA


Rekindle the spirit of your alma mater at the smartest place to stay in town. From Graduate State College, it’s just one block to the Penn State University and a quick skip to Old Main. Located in the heart of downtown and an easy walk to the best spots in State College, our hotel is the perfect home base for Nittany Lion gamedays, campus visits and more.

Guestrooms are a classic college clubhouse, with sturdy wood furniture, vintage art and rich botanical prints. Pinstripes and plaids round out the room, and a stately lion floor lamp presides over the space. Here’s looking at you, State College.

Find ample space to work or play in our lobby lounge, where barnwood walls mingle with grand chandeliers and a touch of Pennsylvania Dutch. Pick up a read from our pleasantly packed bookshelves and settle in at the 20-foot communal table. While you’re in the lobby, grab a cortado from Poindexter Coffee. A cozy café by day, the menu transitions for cocktail hour with handcrafted drinks, beer and wine. Light bites available, too.

So whether you’re dropping in for another record-breaking THON ™ weekend, to visit the local hotspots (Berkey Creamery, anyone?) or cheer on the Lions, we’re here to make your visit memorable. Our warm, friendly and whip-smart staff will guide you around State College, so that you feel like a local even if it’s your first time in town.
