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

This was the perfect hotel to stay at while looking at the colleges in the area. Good location. Plus, the breakfast was yummy. The only thing that I couldn't figure out is why the make your own waffles were in the shape of Texas and not Pennsylvania.

I especially like their policy of cleaning all bed covers between guests. This was a very good location for us. We stayed 3 days and the staff was very helpful since we had never been to Pittsburgh. View from the room was not very appealing but didn't stay in the room very much. There were plenty of restaurants near-by and... More

I had the privilege of living at this property for six months while on TDY in Pittsburgh and can not recommend this hotel enough. The property is not new and does not have the bells and whistles that other properties boast but the service and hospitality at this property should be modeled across the brand. Jonathan, the GM, was usually... More
