Days Inn Penn State has been named the top hotel in the Days Inn brand. Additionally, the hotel has won both the 2017 Hotel of the Year within the Days Inn brand and the Global Hotel of the Year within the Wyndham’s economy segment is a high achievement. 

These awards exemplify how hard working their staff is and how much they strive to go above and beyond expectations, as well as their excellent accommodations for visitors. The hotel, which is located near downtown State College and the Penn State campus, is an optimal choice for visitors desiring walkable restaurants and retail.

The Days Inn is a great example of the high-quality lodging properties found within our destination. We really feel that our region’s properties and people working in them make the stand out in the crowd. “We, as the Central Pennsylvania Convention & Visitor Bureau, like to know that our visitors are being taken care of at a level above and beyond from the moment they enter the county until the moment they leave.”

The family-focused, Wisconsin-based Great Wolf Lodge opened its first resort in Wisconsin Dells in 1997. Over the next two decades, it slowly expanded with more properties around the Midwest, moving into the Northeast, South, West and Canada. And this summer, the greater Chicago area will get its first resort from the brand.

 

I attended the IACC conference at the Chubb Hotel & Conference Center and while I always find the industry trends and reports interesting, my biggest takeaway from the event was the last hour on the last day. I sat down at a table with brown craft paper and a pile of Sharpie markers and was soon told that the other five people at our table of six would be providing 6 minutes of free consulting time to others. What?!

 

Apparently there are two kinds of people: the ones who don’t need to clear their in-boxes and those who do. I fall into that second category. I tend to get a little antsy when I know those messages are piling up so this new package from The Renaissance Pittsburgh definitely caught my eye.
