Welcome to Hampton Inn® hotel in State College. Curious about our name? We're only a mile from Penn State and when the school changed its name in 1953 to reflect its university status, school president Milton S. Eisenhower petitioned the town to become 'State University'. The referendum failed. But an interesting side note was that Milton Eisenhower's brother was the President of the United States, so the University's post office did change the zip code name to University Park. Learn this and other history about Penn State, as you simply walk its beautiful campus. Town and gown have always been intertwined here. You'll find charming restaurants, shops, galleries and coffee bars. Our hotel in State College is also close to a number of other popular local attractions including Beaver Stadium and Bryce Jordan Center.
Stay with us in State College, and be sure to ask us for some recommendations on this beautiful Pennsylvania town.
