We had been traveling for a couple weeks on tour to see various parts of the eastern US, and we came in on a Sunday afternoon and were greeted in such a friendly way by the young lady at the check in desk. Check in was quick and we were directed to drive up the parking ramp for valet to... More

Arrived late afternoon, first time in Pittsburg, looks like a pretty nice city. First impression of the hotel was favorable. I was the only one at the check in counter but had to wait for the manager to take several calls before checking me in. Once he turned his attention to me he was very polite and the check in... More

We always enjoy our stay at this HGI. It is really close to University of Pitt which is a major plus. They have also upgraded a lot of things in the hotel. I like the new pillows and the sleep number bed is great. We needed a few extra items in our room for this trip and the front desk... More

great location, wonderful peace. Close to the University, museum and conservatory. Clean rooms, with WOMB-like beds! Friendly helpful staff assure me that I will reserve here upon my return. We spent four days here and encountered no problems. One change, offer the water with citrus in morning as well as throughout the day.

Appears nice on the surface but room was already grungy, despite appearing somewhat new. Hair was on everything, bedding, towels. Room climate was muggy and even the linens felts sticky. Additionally, none of the technology works. TV picture is terrible; front desk solution was for me to attempt to fix it myself by unplugging it. Wi-Fi does not work on... More

This is a great hotel in a great location. The staff was outstanding, the rooms very clean and comfortable, and it has a nice little restaurant / bar if one doesn't feel like venturing out. It is right in the heart of Pitt's Campus with an easy walk to the museums and other attractions. I will stay at this hotel... More

Clean, quiet, with a very comfortable bed. Since another recent reviewer found the beds uncomfortable, I'll add that the mattress was satisfyingly firm but with a pillowy sort of covering, and the pillows a good mid-size (not too flat and not too gigantic), which is what I like. The AC was somewhat noisy and woke me up once at night... More

This location was perfect-5 minute walk up Forbes Avenue to Pitt. The room was clean, comfy and all of the amenities were up to date. Only negative was that we had to pay $18 to park there-would have been nice if that was included, but we were able to keep our car there while we went to campus all day... More

We visited several colleges in the Pittsburgh area a few days ago and were thrilled to find that this hotel was not only very near Carnegie Mellon, but was right next to the Alumni Hall where Pitt holds admissions events. It was so convenient to simply walk 200 feet to the morning session. The room was fairly clean and nicely... More
