I stayed at this Residence Inn twice within a month timeframe and it was a very mixed experience. Front desk staff on Visit #1 was friendly, I stayed in a clean room, no issues overall and also received a "goodie bag" for my Marriott status. Breakfast was standard Marriott free breakfast fare, though the staff was certainly were trying to... More

I recently stayed here two nights with my family. First, it was a predictable Residence Inn with nice rooms, breakfast, clean pool, etc. I found the staff somewhat mixed. Some really nice folks, but some of the front desk staff weren't very welcoming. As a Platinum elite member, I'm used to the customary welcome and friendly attitude, but was surprised... More

We were in Pittsburgh for a family medical emergency and stayed here for ten days. They are pet friendly, which was wonderful since we had our Cairn Terrier with us! All pet families stay on the ninth floor, but it is relatively quiet, even with other dogs in residence. They have laundry rooms on each floor. Our room was a... More

My son and I stayed here for a college visit. The room was a one bedroom suite, full kitchen, queen bed, queen sleeper sofa, spacious bathroom. Clean. The hotel is on the top of a hill; we had a beautiful view of the city from the fourth floor. Walking distance (downhill to the campus) if you don't mind walking. Parking... More

Got a deal from Priceline. Only drawback is parking fee. You can find on street parking it's not that congested. The rooms are nice. We had a studio which was a queen bed & pull out couch. Big kitchen although we have short weekend stay so no cooking. I'd bring beverages and put in fridge. There is a mini store... More

My room was nice except for an overwhelming air freshener odor. The bed was comfy, but like other reviewer's, I found the walls were very thin and could hear TV/conversations of my neighbors. I used the fan to create white noise. However, there is very little temp control. Having a kitchen was a perk and the hotel offers shuttle service... More

Very nice hotel, rooms were pleasant and clean. It was freezing outside while I was there but my room was warm and cozy. Room included kitchenette with fridge and microwave, a good value for the price. Wifi worked well. TV rotates so you can watch from the couch or the bed. Included breakfast had plenty of variety- sausage, potatoes, cereal,... More

Nice hotel with great rooms. Very big with a stove, fridge, microwave, sofa, etc.. I stayed in a mini suite and it was great. Breakfast was free and better than the average breakfast. I would stay again at this place. It is close to the hospital and college as well. Off street parking for $15 a day.

Definitely a below average property. First - the positives. The staff is so, so, so nice. Five stars for them. Now for the rest.... *They make you sign a no smoking/no party statement when you check in (I get it, it's close to campus). However the room I was given smelt like a filthy ashtray. The front desk immediately changed... More

We drove to Pittsburgh for a hockey tournament. We were very content with the hotel. The staff was also very willing to help. The rooms were more spacious than the typical hotel room. The hotel allowed us to having a team dinner in the lounge. The kids were also allowed to have a conference room to play in. Many hotels... More
