Verified Reviews of Altoona Grand Hotel & Conference Center

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Excellent!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I had a block of rooms here for my wedding given a great rate and my guests only had good things to say. There is a pool which is nice and a bar with a pool table. Breakfast was good as well. I rented the Heller suite and the Governors suite for my bridal party both rooms were amazing, spacious, clean and had large kitchen and living areas. Perfect for this type of occasion! I also rented the honeymoon suite for the night of my wedding and it was perfect. Overall I have nothing bad to say about our stay!

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"I found your site very easy to use, and useful, and your staff helpful but not at all pushy. (I tried using another site that resulted in "sales" calls and won't use that site again. Conference planning is hectic/nutty enough without someone calling everyday to bug you! :-) Not only would I use you, but recommend you highly." L.F. - Berkeley, CA
