Room was clean, and air conditioner operating nice and cool after walking in from 90+ degree weather outside. Parked in below ground garage so vehicle was safe and didn't have to walk in rain upon leaving the next morning. Very satisfied with accommodations, will use again.

We stayed here as a couple for a wedding, for 2 nights. The rooms are nice, the bed is fantastic and the bathrooms beautiful. However, the air conditioning unit turns on like a truck turning over and can wake you from a dead sleep. Also, the housekeeping was sorely lacking. We left our room at 11am and returned at 4pm...

Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor. I apologize to you that we failed to deliver housekeeping service to your guest room in a timely and efficient manner, and that the air-conditioning noise detracted from a peaceful, and restful environment for you. Those two components are significant factors in the quality of a hotel stay, and again I am sorry...

We stayed at the Wyndham for a college visit to Pitt & CMU. The location could not be any better, just steps away from Pitt's campus and a short walk to CMU. The staff was attentive and friendly. The inexpensive in & out parking attached to the hotel is another plus. The rooms were comfortable with one exception, the HVAC...

Stayed one night we had the Deluxe Queen. The air conditioning unit was loud and the sink kept bubbling like it was backed up. The beds were comfortable and the cleanliness was ok. The pool was nice, the water temp was great. Didn't like having to pay extra 20.00 for parking.

We have stayed here twice, both times to visit or move our son into school. The rooms are clean and comfortable, you can walk to public transportation or use the hotel's shuttle service. Chuck the shuttle driver could not be more helpful! All the amenities you'd need for the bathroom and the fitness room is adequate.
