The team at the Hampton Inn is outstanding: always willing to help with whatever problem or question you may have. The free shuttle, which will take you anywhere within three miles, is a real plus, and the various drivers are very friendly and happy to go wherever they are needed. The free wifi works well and while the breakfast is... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Pittsburgh Hampton Inn and will gladly recommend this hotel to other friends/family/ and clients. As I was there for business at the University Medical Center and my girlfriend was there to audition for a role in Pittsburgh, we ran into a few complications including 1) not feeling well 2) not being able to...

On our visit to the city we were able to sight see without the worry of how to get to places or where to park. There are wonderful museums and restaurants to tour and enjoy.

We have used this hotel when visiting our son at college at Carnegie Mellon--very handy location--you can even walk to the school if it's not too cold. The hotel also has a shuttle to local places. We enjoyed the room, parking is a bit tight at the end of the day coming back from dinner though, and you have to... More

I was initially attracted to this hotel because our two pugs can stay with us. Clean and comfortable rooms. Nice buffet in morning but scrambled eggs could use a little work. Have always found the staff friendly and helpful.

The friendliest Hampton I've stayed at so far. I live outside of Pittsburgh and had decided to stay downtown because I was attending a conference and wanted to avoid the downtown rush hour. Everyone was so friendly from the front desk, to the shuttle, to the breakfast bar....so nice to know that in my own city when travelers come they... More

I stayed here while attending a conference at a nearby university. I was very pleased about the quality complimentary breakfast, complimentary shuttle service, and availability of parking.

We stayed this hotel several times, mostly for convenience, as our daughter is studying at the University of Pittsburgh and her apartment is close to this Hampton Inn.
