The Hilton Garden Inn Pitt University Pl. is located within 5 minutes of everything on the Pitt Oakland campus. The staff is conscientious, courteous and knowledgeable. The hotel is very clean and has reasonable rates. I stay there when in Pittsburgh, if they have availablitiy.

Room was comfortable. Breakfast service was excellent specially Diane who was working on the Labor Day holiday. She was attentive to our needs and was helpful and courteous. She provided information about nearby good colleges like Carnegie Mellon to my daughter.

After being displaced to the Hilton Garden Inn by Skyvue, I had an incredibly adequate stay with the incredible staff and accommodations provided here! Especially after I stopped down and was greeted by one of the most friendly, talkative, and interesting waitresses I've every come across, Diane! All in all 10/10.

We had a lovely stay at Hilton Garden Inn Pittsburgh U. Our rooms were spotless and all of the staff was friendly and helpful. We especially loved Diane at the buffet breakfast! Would definitely stay here again. Shuttle is also a big bonus if traveling within 3 miles.

Great place to stay! Very convenient! Staff is outstanding! We love the fact we don't have to move our car from the parking garage because the hotel offers transportation within a 3 mile radius..

Nice property, nice location, but terrible service. Stayed over September 1-4. Cleaning staff didn't come one day and found the front desk to be not very friendly with a bit of an attitude. Not very attentive either with a lack of attention to details. The walls are super thin and I can hear every word from my neighbor.
