I'll start off by saying my room was CLEAN. This alone makes for a great stay! The room was spotless when I arrived and cleaned so nicely each day. Great housekeeping staff here. I always appreciate the coffee, tea, water and cookies that HGI hotels offer in the lobby- the refreshments here were no exception. My bed was not particularly... More

Very nice customer service when booking the hotel. Parking was a bit confusing, as you cannot park at the hotel yourself. You can valet for $18/day or try and find parking on the street/a block away at another parking garage. The front desk staff were fine. The beds are strange, way too firm and the pillows are really sub-par as... More

This hotel is about a mile from Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh. The parking at the hotel was Valet only for $18 with in and out privileges. The two Queen beds were very comfortable and had adjustable dials for mattress to be soft or firm.

I chose this hotel after much deliberation and must say I made a good choice. I was there over the July 4th weekend. The hotel is very clean, and the staff are welcoming and helpful. It is convenient to restaurants and other sites, and the restaurant in the hotel is very nice also. Because of its location with respect to... More

We have now stayed in this hotel 3 times for college visits. Centrally located and within walking distance of universities and some major sites to round out a college visit/weekend. Safe neighborhood with many restaurants and convenience stores for last minute shopping when dropping off students. Quick drive to lots of interesting areas within Pittsburgh to shop, eat and sightsee.... More

Thank you for your repeated business while you visit the various universities located here in Pittsburgh. We are excited that each of your stays with us were productive and enjoyed by both you and your family. As you mentioned, Pittsburgh has a lot to offer and is not that dark, dirty 'Steel City' like it was 40 years ago. We... More

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....
