My husband and I cannot say enough good things about having our wedding reception of about 80 people at the Atherton Hotel in May of 2018. Jessica, the coordinator was extremely detail oriented with the planning of our day, and answered every question we had in a timely fashion. We felt fully at ease having the latter half of our day in her hands for the evening. The staff was extremely kind and made us feel welcome during our stay there the entire weekend (our hotel block was set up at the Atherton as well). In addition to the well-trained staff, the cost of the wedding was extremely affordable, especially compared to some other pricing in the State College area. We cannot recommend using the Atherton Hotel enough!Sent on 07/08/2018
