when we arrived it was late at night/early morning... while our room was ready for us the bathroom smelt heavily of moisture and the shower drain wasn't working properly. Since it was late we reported it in the morning when i had a chance of looking to see where the smell was coming from,it was coming from the shower curtain!... More

We chose this hotel because of the location, thinking that since it's a Hilton, we would get adequate accommodations. We were on a very tight schedule. It took close to 15 minutes for the valet to take the car (there was only valet parking.) The car entrance is a steep ramp - we sat parked hoping the brakes held on... More

My wife, son and I stayed overnight at the Hilton Garden Inn, and it was an excellent place to stay. All of the staff was extremely nice and helpful, and made us feel right at home. The room was very clean, and extremely roomy compared to other hotels we've stayed at. The hotel lobby, and all areas were clean and... More

Pros: Walking distance to a lot of different bars and eating establishments. Cons: Beds are not very comfortable. The adjustable settings only have one option: uncomfortable. Room heating/cooling didn't work making it uncomfortable to sleep. In addition, I could hear all of the noise coming from the street at 4am. I asked to be moved to a different room specifically...

Enjoyed the hotel very much! Lovely employees from Clarence in Valet to Candace at the front desk. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Nice spacious clean room! I love my hotel rooms cold and it took a second after I adjusted the thermostat to be freezing! YES! Loved the Keurig coffee maker too. Small touches of class and elegance everywhere. Thank... More

Nice business hotel in the heart of the University of Pittsburgh main medical campus. Primary reason to stay here is to visit one of the institutions: about a 10-minute walk to the heart of the Pitt campus,15 minutes to the Carnegie museums and hall, and 20 minutes to the entrance of CMU. On colder or wetter days, the hotel has... More

Thank you for spending the night at our hotel while you were here on business at Carnegie Mellon University. We are happy that you enjoyed all the hotel has to offer including on the edge of PITT's campus, and less than a mile from CMU's campus, near the various hospitals, and only 2 miles from the center of Downtown Pittsburgh....

The Hilton Garden Inn in Pittsburgh is a bit better than average, but should not be rated as "Very Good". The staff was very cordial and helpful, but the physical appearance of the hotel lobby and hallways were a bit dated and dull. The room was clean and comfortable, if not a bit dated as well. The bathroom was clean,... More

We chose the Hilton Garden Inn while attending a CMU sleeping back weekend and were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was a good value and the walk back and forth to the campus was easy and pleasant. Our only complaint / advice is to avoid rooms on the back of the hotel. At 4:00... More

Poorest excuse for a king-size bed ever; just a mattress on a platform! Room very noisy since hotel located on a major route to local hospital (sirens & helicopters all night)! Cost w/tax 220+/nite; for this much the breakfast should be included, but was another 13 bucks each and only marginally better than the average chain motel. Valet parking always... More

Visited Pitt and wasn't sure where to stay so I trusted read reviews and wasn't disappointed. Right on the edge of campus so it was easy to walk around. The staff was very pleasant and helpful.
