Where to Stay

Preferred Hotel Partners

We are delighted to partner with Hyatt Place State College and Scholar Hotel State College as our 2023 Preferred Hotel Partners. The hotels offer great options for both business and leisure travel.

Hyatt Place State College offers a boutique-style atmosphere with comforts that keep you relaxed, connected, and ready to tackle the day.

The Scholar Hotel is located two blocks from Old Main and in the heart of State College.  The hotel is close to the Festival, shopping, restaurants, and downtown entertainment.

We also recommend the following lodging partners, who provide special rates for Festival visitors. For other area lodging, please check out the Happy Valley Adventure Bureau.
