Came into pittsburgh for a game and the hotel was more than adequate when it comes to comfort and cleanliness. Enjoyed the stay very much for what we were there for. Only negative for us was the crampy entrance to the hotel since the area around the hotel is very old.

Visited Pittsburgh on business and wanted to stay near the city without the downtown price. Chose this hotel because the price was right and was not disappointed. It's a little tricky to get to and the parking is tight, but the hotel is nice. Had a single queen bed room, very small compared to normal Hampton rooms, but enough space... More

This hotel was clean, the staff helpful, Price fair and had a good breakfast. The shuttle service was a plus for getting around Pittsburgh even though we had our own vehicles. Complimentary coffee, cookies and lemon water was also a nice touch.

The hotel, the staff, the location and convenience are great. Have stayed at other more expensive hotels in Pittsburgh and for the price, the Hampton Inn is equitable in every way. Parking is uncomplicated and you don't have to pay extra! Would definitely recommend this hotel to folks visiting Pittsburgh.

The site of this hotel was excellent for hospital and doctor appointments. The staff was very professional, respectful, and friendly. There is a discount offered if you are having a hospital appointment and this is a plus. The breakfast bar had a good variety of offerings and several of these items were very healthy. Although I did not utilize their... More

Stayed here to see a Pirates game at PNC Park. Very conveniently located to both downtown Pittsburgh and the universities nearby. They have a frequent shuttle service into town. Staff were friendly, courteous, and efficient. Rooms were fine -- nothing remarkable, but clean and spacious enough, and decent water pressure in the shower. First room they gave us was damp... More

Very friendly staff, great coffee/tea bar 24 hours. I missed the evening cookies that Hampton Inn typically has. One Hampton Inn I have been to had fresh fruit all day and fresh popcorn in the evening. Nice complete breakfast with a very nice fresh fruit salad. I would have liked an egg offering that did not have meat mixed in,... More

I stayed here for four nights and enjoyed many aspects of this thoughtfully run hotel. There was the friendly but totally professional staff, the free shuttle bus to anywhere within three miles (pick up on demand from anywhere within that radius was included), reliable wi-fi (also free), decent self-serve breakfast, lots of recharge outlets in the comfortable room, good shower...

This hotel was perfect for our visit to colleges as it's in the university district near University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University. Also there is an free, hourly shuttle from the hotel that will drop you anywhere in the area. They also said the shuttle could pick you up, but we called and asked for a return shuttle and... More
