Hyatt Place State College Could Be Your Blue-White Weekend Destination

Hyatt Place State College has opened up room availability beginning April 11, 2017. You know what that means: there is another option for Blue-White weekend housing. The opening of the Hyatt Place State College will symbolize the beginning of an urbanization phase in State College — before long, high rises will start popping around College Ave. Another notable project that will add height to the State College skyline is the building that will eventually replace Kildare’s.

You can click here to check the rates and availability for Blue-White Weekend this spring – or any other time of the year after April 11, 2017. But let’s face it, you want to come to the Blue-White game. The Hyatt Place will be located within the Fraser Centre in downtown State College just across from campus. Target and H&M both opened their Fraser Centre locations this fall, and the Hyatt Place will soon join these two retail giants.

The Blue-White game will take place on April 22, 2017, and the lone football weekend of the spring semester will undoubtedly put a strain on the housing options in and around State College. This higher-end living option will provide another potential choice for those looking for a downtown location and are willing to dish out a little bit of cash. Free Wi-Fi, pet accommodation, easy access to all that downtown State College has to offer, and the privacy of a hotel room will surely attract many as they make their plans for Penn State’s annual spring football game.

The Hyatt Place hasn’t officially opened yet, but when the Blue-White game comes around, it wouldn’t be surprising to see it full to the brim with Penn State fans.
