This hotel has a great location being close to several universities and the Children's Hospital. We stayed here twice five years apart, and were very pleased. If we come back to the area, we will definitely stay here again. Friendly staff, great breakfast, rooms are very nice.

Stayed here for a trip to University of Pittsburgh. Great location, but VERY noisy. Definitely think we stayed on the wrong side of the hotel. Overall clean, with friendly staff. Breakfast was also very good. Valet parking only. Reasonable rates for the location.

The Hilton Garden is a quiet restful nest for us when we travel to the hospitals in Oakland, PA. We had the convenience of the restaurants, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker in our room. The hospital is walking distance away and they also had a shuttle to transport us if we needed it. Our room was made up early in...

The Hotel was in a perfect location for the venue we attended. The Area was full of sightseeing venture's with in walking distance. The hotel offered shuttle service if needed. We took advantage of it while the morning was chilly, but enjoyed a walk back to the hotel as the sun warmed the day.

This hotel was very nice. Beautiful lobby, room very nice, bed was great, room was very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Complimentary internet wasn't that strong though. And the noise from the people in the next room was fairly loud, so either the walls are thin or the noise was coming through the locked adjacent door between them. But...

Rooms are nice, staff is very very helpful to the out-of-towner. Breakfast staff (Diane) was so nice to us and the breakfast was delicious. Kudos to Chef Cindy. Location was primary reason we chose this Hilton and it was perfect.
