I stayed at the hotel over the holiday weekend. The entire staff was very friendly and courteous. I arrived late and they let me order at the restaurant after hours. The location is great and they have a convenient shuttle to get you downtown running hourly.

The cleanliness, friendliness, and quality were fantastic. My complaints mostly have to do with noise, the bed was creaky and there was significant road noise in my particular room. For some reason trip advisor requires at least 200 characters to waste the time of folks reading the review, so I have to time some more stuff in here to waste... More

I stay at this hotel about every 6 weeks. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. The valet service is excellent as well as the hotel staff. It is conveniently located near campus so you can park and walk where you need to or use the free shuttle.

Great service, I love it that they have cold water/coffee/tea/chocolate near the front desk for guests, and that there's a microwave in the room. I will like to specially compliment Michael, one of the valet/shuttle drivers, he was very helpful and gave me many helpful suggestions/advice when he knew I was searching for apartment and staying here for some time....

We stayed here in late June, 2014. Overall, no complaints at all. The price seemed a bit higher than expected ($170/pm AAA rate + $18 parking), but for some reason this weekend seemed particularly busy in Pittsburgh and this was one of the most competitive rates could find and in the best part of town. The hotel is somewhat no... More

We stayed at this Hilton so we could get a restful nights sleep before my husband surgery. The beds were the most uncomfortable beds we have ever slept in. I ask 3 times the next day to have them looked at, it was not until 9:40 pm, after I asked if anyone looked at the beds a serviceman looked at... More

Stayed here about two weeks ago for a wedding, horrible experience. Called a day ahead to alert the front desk that I would be checking in late night (1-2am) due to my travel schedule. The woman on the phone was very accommodating and let me know that a note would be left so the overnight staff would be aware to... More

Stayed one night while touring University of Pittsburgh with my daughter. Good location to stay within walking distance to Alumni Hall for tour. Complimentary coffee and water was a nice touch! Rooms were quite small, glad I wasn't staying longer. Beds were comfortable, but squeaky. Rooms had a refrigerator, microwave, and kuerig, which was nice! I would stay for a... More

Had to stop overnight for a long road trip and was pleased with this choice. The hotel is in great condition and rooms are cleanly. The carpet seemed slightly damp in our room and there was a lot of noise (outside that radiated into the room) but other than that satisfied.
