My client was just across the Hot Iron Bridge, so the location was excellent; easy to get to and drive from. Wonderful beds! Typical hotel room, but above average and nicely decorated. As another reviewer wrote, no breakfast was included, which is odd for us that are Hilton Premium members. Restaurant food and service was good and very hospitable. Would... More

I chose this hotel for proximity to my activities and my membership in their honors program. I found the hotel to be attractive and comfortable with a competent and friendly staff. Van service for a three mile radius also. As Amtrak was within this range and also the event local, I saved rental car fees and not having to drive... More

This hotel offers the chance to be walking distance from the University of Pittsburgh. Staff is great, rooms are super and the breakfast is the best. Very convenient to all parts of Pittsburgh. The valet parking is a big plus.

Staying at Hilton Garden Inn University place was a great experience. Wonderful location, super-friendly staff and comfortable rooms. The only downside was that the hotel rate did not include breakfast which is a bit too expensive for what they served, and that they slipped the bill under the door every single day very early in the morning. I guess this... More

This is a nice, spotlessly clean hotel especially convenient for parents of Pitt students. There are laundry rooms available for the guests, and an acceptable restaurant and bar. The only problem is the valet-only parking. If you have a tall vehicle, or you have a car topper for luggage, you'll have to park on the street or at a parking... More

We thoroughly enjoyed a long weekend here, attending a conference at the University. Of course the location is great for University activities and it is also an easy walk to several tourist sites, including Phipps Botanical Gardens, Cathedral of Learning, and Carnegie museums. The hotel put a heavy emphasis on service, and the staff was cheerful and helpful. The room... 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
