This was a large place with lots of gray and beige. Staff were not especially friendly or helpful. The room was fine and the bed was extremely comfortable. We asked for extra blankets and got really nice ones. We had a lovely view of grand buildings out of the window. Breakfast was not free and parking cost $20 per day... More

I stayed here on business and found it a relaxing hotel with generous rooms and (for some of them) ok views. The area where the Hotel is located is beautiful: near several hospitals, as well as the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie-Mellon, it's a hilly region with distinctive public buildings. This is the best choice for a hotel in this... More

Excellent based on: location which is on the Pitt campus 50 yards from the admissions office/alumni hall and 150 from the Cathedral of Learning, comfortable beds with ironed (or at least not wrinkled) soft sheets (really the nicest sheets I have had in a long time!), 2 free bottles of water, Blue bath products, friendly staff, and a nice restaurant....

We were disappointed with this hotel . First, the price point ($250. Per night) is way too high in relation to the condition/service received at this property. The place is worn and tired and really in need of a freshening. Halls and rooms are dark, food tray laying on the floor in the hallway, spots on carpets. Our room was... More
