We were in during move-in weekend and it was a mess - no hotels anywhere. This was a really good option for us and close to the East End. Nice staff, clean rooms, easy in and out. Breakfast was better than I have had at many HI hotels. And those are always pretty consistent - good.

The hotel is very well located, particularly if you are visiting the Pittsburgh universities. They offer complimentary transportation to the schools and nearby attractions. Parking is an extra $14. Our room, king bed with pull out couch was clean and comfortable, but on the small side (especially if you need to use the pull out couch). The small fitness room... More

We stayed at this Hampton Inn while my husband received Medical care at UPMC. The staff was extremely helpful. The hotel was quiet and clean and the breakfast each morning was better than most hotel fare. The shuttle drivers were friendly and compassionate and it lowered our stress not to have to deal with the traffic congestion and lack of... More

This hotel provided the best customer service that I have ever received. The staff was friendly, professional and extremely helpful.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The entire facility was clean. I wish I had taken advantage of the shuttle service that the hotel offered. Taxis in the area were hard to come by and the shuttle would have been very helpful.

First of all I want to say the employees at this hotel are awesome! From making the reservation, check-in and check-out, the breakfast clerk and the housekeepers were very friendly and professional. On the other hand...we stayed in room 309. It had suspicious black mold in the bathroom and when we tried to turn on the heat a terrible, terrible... More

The hotel staff is welcoming and the lobby is bright, cheerful and offers a variety of beverages for the weary traveler. The rooms are clean but the air has a musty smell. It has a convenient location to the highway and I would return as a second choice.
