We stayed at this hotel for a week along with many other guests attending a family wedding. We made full use of the free shuttle bus and were happy to be guided by the helpful drivers as to the best places to visit on our first trip to Pittsburgh. We liked the help yourself breakfast bar that had a wide... More

Exceptionally clean, helpful staff. Perfect location if you have appointments at the VA Hospital. Their shuttle service is terrific/Rick the shuttle driver has the best sense of humor for the Pittsburgh traffic and will always get you "there" on time. Great morning breakfast...fresh fruits, hot cerals, eggs, etc.

Stayed while spending time visiting my daughter who goes to the University of Pittsburgh so technically in Oakland area, but pretty easy to get downtown and about a mile down the road from Pitt on Forbes. Parking is self-parking but not free (like it said on-line) but is only $14/night. Nothing really close to hotel to do so must drive... More

I love this place--a completely unpretentious, snug hotel tucked into the center of Pittsburgh. Nothing fancy, but very comfortable, a little old fashioned. Lobby has a cool long counter for you to read your emails, etc. Free breakfast. Dogs accepted for $35 extra. I would stay here again--it doesn't feel like a typical chain.

Stayed at this property for over a week and was very happy with the services overall. The staff are excellent and very helpful. The two problems I have with the hotel is the cleanliness of the rooms and the vibration noise the hot water heater makes when you take a hot shower. The hotel is very close and walking distance...

This was a last minute stay. The hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly. The only thing I would change is the set up of the breakfast area...very cramped. Also, tried to get a cup of tea and the hot water was empty.

Recently stayed at this Hampton for one night. For a Hampton, it was a bit beat up and the price we ended up paying was a bit on the high side though it seemed comparable to what was being offered for the area. However while sitting in the lobby, I heard various prices being offered for rooms over the phone... More
