Stayed here one night on a college tour for my son. This hotel is on the small side, but is convenient to University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon, Carlow and any other spot in the Oakland area. Very friendly and courteous staff, from Matt and John at check-in to the cleaner on our floor who was very apologetic for accidentally knocking... More

We found out on a Friday that my wife would be having surgery the following Tuesday at UPMC Presby. After checking with a few other hotels, I came across the Hampton Inn. They offered a substantial discount for my stay while my wife was in the hospital and also allowed me to add additional nights (and subsequent cancellation) without any... More

If you have something to do in Oakland or even downtown, this hotel is clean and convenient. The walk to University of Pittsburgh may be longer than you expect. Be prepared to pay for parking, nearby street parking is not practical.

The staff are fantastic here, going the extra mile to help us out. This time we asked for a roll-away bed for our room. After we checked in, the front desk associate immediately retrieved and delivered the rollaway to our room personally. The hotel is close to the University of Pittsburgh so we have the option to take the complimentary... More

A family member was having surgery at one of Pittsburgh's finest hospitals and this was our home for two weeks. Everyone at the hotel treated us like family. The shuttle was wonderful for getting around and the driver was always helpful and friendly. Front desk employees were impeccable. Kitchen staff were some of the nicest people we have ever met....

We arrived late at night to a warm and friendly staff. Shanna McClean checked us in efficiently and with a smile. Her colleague, a man who's name I do not recall, upon hearing us ask about nearby food, offered pizza (a new box) intended for the staff but he insisted was "extra" . We were so hungry while at first... More

We had a very pleasant experience beginning to end. The bed was super comfy. The room was quiet and clean. The complimentary breakfast was the best I've ever had in a hotel. Couldn't have asked for better.
