Not a friendly reception and a small sign required an additional $3 for parking (since August). Yes, it's a small amount, but nickels & dimes add up.
Anyway, one of the 2 elevators was unavailable (in repair). Good thing I was on the 2nd floor and could just run upstairs. I noticed dirty glasses and a cup on the floor by the elevator when I went up - these stayed there all afternoon and into the evening.
The room was clean and comfortable with fridge, micro and coffee maker, so no faults there. And at the end of the hall, it was quiet.
The fitness center has 4 machines, of which only 2 work (a bike and a treadmill). The indoor pool, sauna and hot tub were enjoyed by others as
I labored at the bike.
The restaurant, Harrigans, is convenient and has an extensive wine selection and attractive dessert viewing tray. The food was good but the bill was inaccurate and fortunately I caught the $8 overcharge and was assured that the computer entry was reset for future patrons.
So, the room is fine, but the rest needs some attention.

... with houses with enormous yards. This actually bothers me more than the trailer park--at least the trailer park provides homes for people in a space efficient way... this development looks like a squandering of a precious resource on huge yards that people really aren't going to use for anything... Veering off to the west is my next town: Newry. This town wins the prize for Shabbiest Town Hall. It looks like a little old church ...
... it is a Civil War monument and a monument to the the pioneer family with the father holding a gun and the mother reading the child a book. Sort of the stereotypical image we like to preserve of the first white settlers. Incidentally, I learn, Logan Valley is actually named after a Native American leader who lost his role as chief because he lost his eye due to an arrow. He was friendy towards the colonists ...
... I climb up to a little park on a hilltop with a sign that reads "this land has been designated as a park... forever"
Sorry folks, nothing is "forever"--especially not when it comes to urban development.
One thing I do notice different about Altoona is that the vast majority of people in the run down neighborhoods around downtown are white folks. When you see a Confederate flag flying from a window just a block from downtown, you know this ...
