"Every staff member I met, whether in the halls or at a desk, smiled and said hi.  Not one missed this opportunity to sell the Penn Stater.  I think it may have been the best staff I ever have experienced at any hotel. I usually do not take the time to fill out these surveys but I was that impressed."
