The entrance to the hotel is on a side street and you have to stop right in the road to check in. Right next to the revolving door is the valet parking entrance. Across from it is a gas station. As you enter, you come to a split-level foyer and you have to walk up a flight of stairs to... More

Stayed at this hotel while visiting University of Pittsburgh. Location is in the middle of every place we were interested in. The room lacked sparkle, restaurant was boring and the front desk service is poor, especially for those arriving by taxi. The staff are there to put in a shift, not necessarily to make their guests feel at home.

I had an overnight stayed at this hotel with my spouse in early April. The room we were given was okay; nothing to be wowed over. I think the room they gave us was really intended for one person, as we found ourselves bumping into each other at the entrance and at the space between the bed and the dresser/TV... More

I will stay at other Hiltons in the future but probably never at a garden Inn. the service at the front desk was not what we expected and breakfast was neither. The eggs I got were full of grease and so was the bacon

The hotel is easy walking distance to Pamela's and Red Oak Cafe (breakfast, brunch, lunch), CVS, Radio Shack, etc. and is in the heart of the University area. It is a convenient hotel for both business travelers and families visiting the area. Very good shower, Keurig in the room as well as coffee in the lobby. We will definitely stay... More

I didn't have high hopes for this hotel but my entire experience was great. The staff were super helpful, the room was clean, and the fitness room was large and underutilized. I left a book in my room when I left and they mailed it to me right away. The hotel is close to great restaurants and the university and... More

We were here for a wedding and stayed two night. The bed was fine and the pillows were typical hotel pillows in our mind. The staff was very friendly. Front desk was warm and welcoming, bar tenders were friendly, and valet's were very helpful and worked quickly. If you are driving to the hotel, they only have valet parking. Their... More

We stay at this motel quite often as my husband has a heart condition that requires him to frequent Presbyterian hospital. Since it is only two block away and the shuttle gets us there and back without having to bother with our car, it is very convenient. The motel itself is clean and comfortable and the staff is always very... More
