I'm writing this review at 6am from the most uncomfortable bed I've ever been in. I've been tossing and turning all night. The bed is rock hard and is angled from side to side (room 413). I'm tempted to go sleep in my car. -There is no actual glasses in the room, everything was paper cups. Not a big deal,... More

We have been traveling to Pittsburgh for the last 10 years. This was one of our best experiences. Great service and friendly staff. Helpful from the time we walked in the door. Right away they offered the free shuttle to the concert we were attending and the staff all around were excellent. From the valet parking attendants, to the front... More

Stayed for a weekend to catch up with my daughter who goes to Pitt. It's the perfect location. We had a great experience with everyone we came in contact with! The coffee and hot chocolate were much appreciated every time we walked through the lobby!

Too Much to say and only 200 words to do it. Find another location if possible starting with a nearby Hampton as my recommendation. Beds needed upgrade immediately. Parking on street or valet - no other choices. Will say the person that checked me out was very helpful and caring. Only good part of the stay.

We've stayed at this hotel numerous times and this stay was the worst to date. Bathrooms need a good steam cleaning with fans to be made operational. Drapes in room were stained and soiled, unacceptable. One elevator was out of order upon checkout time, so we took the steps from the 5th floor. Could not control heating unit the morning... More

The staff was very nice, but the hotel rooms have a tired feel. The beds are hard and uncomfortable-- a mattress on a piece of wood which makes noise when you move on it. Our room was on sixth floor was a bit tight with two queen beds. The hotel is close to Pitt.

Hilton Garden Inn on Forbes Avenue is close to everything! It is an easy walk to University of Pittsburgh, Medical Centers (2), Carnegie Museum (1 mile), plus Carnegie Mellon University. A wonderful hotel that has great staff, comfortable (but smaller) rooms, good breakfast in their restaurant. Many restaurants in walking distance from sports bars, grills, to nicer dining. Add a...

Great place if you done mind lumps and bumps in your ancient weird beds or the creaking and groaning they make if you move. I can't understand the great reviews. Friendly staff cannot compensate. They say they are about to get new beds....

When visiting Pittsburgh, I highly recommend this hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The room was very clean and the valet service was great! The homemade omelet at the restaurant was delicious!

OK, let's do the pluses first. If you're visiting Pitt or CMU or any other place in the Oakland area, this is a very conveniently located hotel. The shuttle service is free and very good. Staff is very friendly and gave us great advice on where to eat, etc. The breakfast, while not included in the room price, is definitely... More
