    This place was incredible!

    My husband and I stayed during the orientation at Lycoming College. The courtesy and knowledge of the staff for local events was outstanding. We highly recommend this place and we look forward to our next stay.

  • Beautiful luxury with modern conveniences!

    Beautiful luxury with modern conveniences!

    We just returned from an overnight stay and can't say enough great things about this hotel! Located in downtown Williamsport, PA, I had heard about The Genetti from road signs initially during our travels to the area this past year (our child now attends Lycoming College).

    Intrigued, I researched this hotel online and hoped we would stay there one day - a last minute trip plus the fact they allow dogs convinced us to - and I only wished our stay could have been longer! From my first phone call inquiring about their pet policy (Alicia who works the front desk is wonderful!) to departing this morning, nothing could have been better! We actually booked two rooms, and while both were different (a first floor with outside door allowed my daughter & roommate to stay with our dog, while my husband & I enjoyed a smoking room which also features a whirlpool tub for two with King sized bed) I would stay in either room again in a heartbeat!

    Both rooms were immaculate, and we enjoyed perfect wi-fi service. The decor was nice & inviting and the beds very comfortable. We usually don't travel with our dog and weren't sure what to expect of the first floor room (would smell & stains of previous guests linger?) however we need not have worried as the room was spotless, the beds comfy and the air fresh! The location made for walking our dog, even during a snowy day, a pleasure and we all enjoyed this room so much we enjoyed our dinner there (Room service from the 4th Street Grill was delicious - we stuck to sandwiches & highly recommend the Reuben in particular!).

    Now the Whirlpool room on the 10th floor - wow! The tub is actually outside the very large bathroom, directly across from the bed - very enticing, the room decor impeccable and beyond clean. This room is perfect for a romantic getaway & highly recommend! It looks to be recently refurnished, and all I can say is "Well done!" The Genetti has been in use since the 1920's and it is a beautiful, comfortable place to stay.

    While maintaining it's history (the lobby decor hails to the past in the best of ways with gorgeous chandeliers and rich leather sofas) it offers all the modern conveniences any person could want (even the elevators have flat screens featuring hotel & local information) that make The Genetti a very welcoming place to stay! I must not forget to mention the staff - everyone there was terrific and could not ask for better (Alicia & Kathy were standouts!). I can't imagine anyone not enjoying their stay here, and we plan to again, many times!

  • Zachary (at the front desk) is the Man!

    Zachary (at the front desk) is the Man!

    My boyfriend and I stayed the night this past weekend for his graduation and could not have been any happier with our choice of hotel. We arrived late Friday night and had the pleasure of being greeted by Zachary, the front desk attendant, who accomadated our every need.

    After our two and a half hour drive to Williamsport, arriving after two in the morning for the graduation the next day, it was such a breath of fresh air to be helped by an employee like Zachary. It is so nice to see someone who enjoys their job and have such a great attitude (esp. accomadating people at 2:30 in the morning).

    I just really felt that I had to write this comment to you guys to let you know how great of service we had and that we thoroughly enjoyed our night at the Genetti. Since we were enjoying ourselves so much in our gorgeous room, we woke up very late for the graduation ceremony. There was an incedent in the morning where my boyfriend and I woke up at 9:30am and my boyfriend was supposed to be there at 9. So we had not even 30 minutes to get ready and run down there. We were running around in a frenzy trying to get ready as quick as possible since we were extremely close to missing the biggest part of graduation day, the walk, and we went to use the iron and it was broken.

    My boyfriend quickly called down and explained our situation and we were astonished by how fast they ran up a brand new iron to our room. Literally one minute it took, and that really saved the day. Next trip to Williamsport the Genetti is where we will be staying, just wanted to say thanks again (and a special thanks to Zachary!)

    Room Tip: The jacuzzi room was awesome.

  • Feeling welcome!

    Feeling welcome!

    We have stayed at the Genetti Hotel for the past four years while our son attended Lycoming College. Outstanding experience Kathy Taylor front desk manager always greets you with her big smile.

    The whole staff there makes you feel welcome. The Genetti being one of the oldest hotel in Williamsport Pa is very younique, each room has it own touch of home. Looking forward to staying there again in the near future.

  • Older hotel charm with modern touches!

    Older hotel charm with modern touches!

    For many years, I worked a block away from the Genetti and often wondered what it would be like to stay there. So last weekend, I reserved a room so I didn't have to drive home (27 miles on road I don't like at night) after a concert in Williamsport.

    Let's add that the rooms are wonderful. Sure they might not be state of the art, but they are clean, fresh, and welcoming! All rooms have flat screen TV's, you have free Wi-Fi, the best breakfast bar I have ever eaten at, and the most welcoming staff in any place I have ever stayed.

    My organization has offered to look for a more "MODERN" hotel and I emphatically deny. No one really likes to be away from home, but I consider going to the Genetti home. They are centrally located so you can shop, walk around town, enjoy a movie, go to a show, hear a band, or stay in to eat in their restaurant that is AWESOME!

    If I had one complaint it would be that the restaurant is not open on Sunday evenings and I always travel to the Genetti on a Sunday afternoon. After Traveling, I do not want to go out to eat, I would rather stay in at the hotel. However, due to the nature of the business it is not a busy day for them, so it doesn't pay to be open that day.

    The Staff are as close to perfect as you can get. All! Never has anyone treated me poorly and even the General Manager Mark makes it a point every time I am there to ask me about my visit. Kathy, who is always at the front desk makes me feel like I'm just part of the family. Even the General Managers family and puppies great me. I also must mention Kasey who always takes care of me and my staff. She ensures our stay exemplary.



    I have the honor and the privilege to stay at the Genetti 5 times a year. Some people think that since the hotel is older it is not modernized so they want something plush. Well let me tell you that if there were Genetti Hotels all across the world, I would stay at them every time. First above all, the history incorporated in this hotel is emotionally warming. It is a wonderful walk down memory lane.

    I had reserved a room with a queen sized bed, but they upgraded me to a room with a king sized bed and reduced the price. I had a lovely room on the 8th floor with a large ceiling fan. I loved that the inner doors to the closet and bathroom still sported older type hardware. Modern touches included a microwave and refrigerator in the room, large television and very comfortable bed with plenty of pillows.

    I also loved that there was still a glass-fronted mail drop chute inbetween the elevators.

    Breakfast was complementary and included eggs, bacon, French toast, sausage, even grits (in Pennsylvania!), applesauce, hardboiled eggs, etc. and delicious coffee. The staff was great – at the front desk and in the dining area.

  • A comfortable hotel with a top-notch staff. . .

    A comfortable hotel with a top-notch staff. . .

    An old-fashioned--in the best sense of that term--downtown hotel: high ceilings and carved woodwork in the meeting rooms, for example. However, the pool, the restaurant, and above all the staff, are up to the minute.

    I had forgotten to bring a printout of my speech, and discovered that my flashdrive was corrupted. Though the hotel's 'public' computers had no capability to accept my 'second backup' SD card, staffer Matthew took the card, did some magic behind the scenes, and produced a printout--no cost. Matthew also saw to it that I received a room discount based on my former military service.
    Other staffers were outstandingly friendly and helpful, not one of them ever exhibiting that coldly courteous, almost robotic demeanor that I find so off-putting at some big-city hotels. Breakfasts are included in the room charge; unlike some places offering a 'Continental' breakfast, this one is warm, with a large variety of choices. Dining room staff were every bit as helpful, friendly, and eager to care for the guest's needs and wants as the front desk staff. Management of this hotel clearly works hard to provide guests a positive experience, and staff attitudes reflect that.

    Room Tip: My room was 9th floor, south-facing, with a breath-taking panoramic view of Bald Eagle Mountain acro...

  • Fantastic!


    The hotel itself is rich with history and has a charm not seen in most hotels. It has a prime location with plenty of options for leisure and functionality.

    he decor screams of it's history with antiques and collectibles from the hotel in glass cases. The service is excellent. The staff friendly and informative. The restaurant has excellent food and service. The room was clean and well maintained. The beds are comfortable. I was ready to move in for good.

    Room Tip: Poolside rooms are quiet and have a more apartment like feel, and they get the afternoon sun.

  • Great 3 day stay!

    Great 3 day stay!

    My Son and I stayed at this hotel at the end of June for the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War annual encampment (convention). We had a really nice stay and would recommend this place to just about anyone.

    We stayed in room 107 which is by the pool. (The pool was clean and fun) Our room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Air conditioning worked great on a hot weekend. The only thing I noticed was that the bathroom was in need of an update. Mind you, everything worked correctly, but the tub, sink and fixtures could use a freshening up.

    The nice thing about this hotel is that everything is in a central location. Our meeting / banquet rooms, elevators, restaurant and front desk are all close to each other. The meeting rooms I was in for our encampment were nicely adorned, clean and functional. The sound system worked in each room and the staff did a nice job setting things up. We did experience one problem in one of the rooms though. They couldn't seem to get the A/C to work real well and so it was a bit hot in there. On the whole, the meeting rooms were very good!

    I noticed that all of the staff from the hotel were friendly and spoke to me each time I passed with a "hello" or a "have a nice day". This seemed genuine and I liked it. These folks were doing a good job and felt good about spending my money there. The people at the front desk were very helpful (especially John) and patient as I had several questions about local attractions and stores etc.

    Be sure to take advantage of the free breakfast! You will have lots to choose from, it is delicious and it is included with your room cost.

    One last thing, if you are a history buff, this is a place of history. Be sure to note carefully the photos and decorations throughout the lobby level. These have been a lot of well known people who visited / stayed at this hotel over the years. If you are in Williamsport, stop and get a room at the Genetti.

    It would be impossible to have had a better stay at the Genetti Hotel. We were in town overnight for a funeral, with arrangements made at the last minute.

    The staff at the hotel, from the reservations assistant on the phone to the registration desk people, to the staff in the hotel, were accommodating and friendly. The room was amazingly beautiful, clean, comfortable, and quiet. It's an historic hotel with modern amenities. The breakfast buffet was delicious and full of comfort foods. I truly appreciate the care this hotel and staff provided during our stay.

    Room Tip: I think any room in this hotel would be comfortable.

    Quaint Old Place!

    Stayed here overnight for a banquet and this is quite a nostalgic place. Lots of history in every corner as it is old but kept up well.

    Great food and bar setup too. Overall the room was fine. Other than the bathroom being dated and small everything was clean with beds and furniture very comfortable. It's a friendly, happy place to be as we enjoyed our stay and will return.

    Room Tip: We were on the 10th floor and had a great view of the southwest of the city.

  • Above & Beyond. . .

    Above & Beyond. . .

    From the first phone call to the final checkout, the service was impeccable. These are not just employees, they are like family. Honestly! Every person we encountered was cheerful, helpful and just darned NICE.

    This is not a cookie-cutter chain hotel. It is gorgeous and charming and just plain quirky. Our room was nice and large, with a mini fridge, microwave and a coffee maker. There were not quite enough outlets in the room, but it was no big deal. The bed was comfy and well made with an inspirational card on the pillow, wishing us peace and happiness (see the picture). That was genuinely heartwarming, and I am not a sappy person! Overall the room was clean. The bathroom was dated. But it was extremely clean and did the best with the space that it could. Have to remember this hotel is from the 1920's. Big luxurious bathrooms didn't really exist. The hotel has done the best they can with this limitation!

    Because of the weather, we ate in the restaurant. It was new years eve and they were having a buffet. It was "eh". For some odd reason, everything was super peppery. I like pepper, but it was like everything had 3 times more than it needed. Odd. My husband ordered off the regular menu and it was above average. The breakfast, however, was awesome. If I lived in that town, I would make it a destination. They have this beautiful breakfast buffet every morning, with really exceptional quality breakfast offerings.

    Being NYE, it was busy and was really rocking. We could hear the party from the 5th floor, but it was faint. On a normal night I can't imagine one would hear a peep. The lobby was gorgeously decorated, and there is memorabilia and interesting stuff to see in every nook, crannie and hallway.

    I would give this place 6 stars if I could. We will be back!

    All work and some play. . .

    I had the great privaledge of staying at the Genetti for two weeks during may. I was brought to the Genetti due to thier in house meeting rooms. There was a conference held there on breast feeding, and being a R.N. my company made it mandatory to attend.

    Although my work kept me busy most of my stay, i was completely blown away by the genuine hospitality and historic atmosphere that the hotel had to offer. Also, although i had arrived late to the hotel due to a flight delay, a gentleman named Matthew who was working the front desk was very informative. He had even noticed that i was pretty jet lagged and he upgraded me from a traditional room to a suite without me even having to inquire! I look forward to the next time my work brings me to Williamsport hoping for the chance to spend some more time at this beautiful hotel!

  • Old World Elegance!

    Old World Elegance!

    Traveling with my group of Swedish tourists. All I can say is that the hotel went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. I loved the old architecture and design. A sense of the past without being heavy.

    We were greeted with red and white wine. Baggage was handled quickly and check-in was easy. The management was ready to give out advice on restaurants and directions. All of the staff greeted us with a smile and a warm welcome.

    My room was upgraded to a suite with a large sitting room and huge bedroom room a wonderful comfortable beds filled with lots of pillows. Bathroom was lovely with extra towels and a huge bathroom mirror. Felt like I was in movie set! Just wonderful, sorry I could not stay and another day. But I highly recommend the hotel for NOT being your typical boring tourist place. Thanks The breakfast was fit for a king or Queen with almost too many selections to choose from eggs to bacon pancakes, waffles, cereals..

  • Had a Grand, Old, Time! Genetti Hotel and Conference Center!

    Had a Grand, Old, Time! Genetti Hotel and Conference Center!

    I attended a conference in Williamsport recently in this hotel, and stayed 2 nights. It immediately reminded me of the Hotel Bethlehem, similar construction, interior features, and era.

    Apparently built in 1922. Everything was great. Our conference dinner was excellent, steak and shrimp, and the service was very attentive and efficient.

    The room was as expected, unique, but the furnishings were new, the king sized bed, flat screen, desk work area and heating and cooling. I slept very well.

    While the bar was not open Sunday on arrival, I did stop there the next night and it was also very good, with a good selection of drinks and wonderful bartender.

    All in all, this was a nice reminder of "grand olde tymes" and the classy era of days gone by.

    Cheers to the Genetti Hotel and Genetti Family for keeping the tradition alive...

    Event & Overnight Stay. . .

    Our company held a training in the Terrace room of this hotel. What makes Genetti a great place is the staff -- very, very helpful, friendly, and willing to please with any detail we asked.

    Our overnight room was beautiful, quiet, and clean. The breakfast was exceptional! If the hotel wants to host more conferences, it would do best to get blinds that cover the windows, a blind to cover the mirrors at the front, and better audiovisual equipment, speakers, and chords. We will be back however, mainly because we bring our own equipment and because of the exceptional service we received! Casey and Eric were terrific, as well as the banquet set-up person (Sharon?) Eddie at the front desk was very pleasant too!

They have a very good restaurant and pub and what I also like is the ability to walk outside and experience other dining alternatives in this neat little town. I see other reviews and many of them say how great the staff is and it is true. They are exceptional and well-trained, friendly and knowledgeable.
