Be aware that all of the rooms in the entire hotel are on the same thermostat. You are only able to have your air or heat on or off. You are unable to regulate the temperature in your room at this hotel as it is an old building. When I called to ask for help in finding the thermostat they... More

Nice hotel with free parking, free breakfast and all the amenities. Our two bedroom suite was very nice with a bathroom off each room and a full kitchen. We would definitely visit here again. The only small issue is a pending $60 hold on our credit card is still there after checking out 4 days ago.

We were in town for a lacrosse tournament. The hotel is very close to the Pitt campus and the Cost Center. What made this hotel a 4 star experience was the staff. The ladies who checked us in were so friendly and helpful. I was hosting a dinner for our team, about 35 young men, and the front desk ladies... More

This hotel offers a good location at a very reasonable price for Pittsburgh. It is less than a mile from campus and many of the hospital offices. During my stay, the internet was having issues, hopefully now it is fixed. The air conditioner didn't seem to work to well so the front desk staff sent maintenance to open the windows.... More

Until they bring this place up to 2005 standards it will only rate an Average. Price is right @ $135 pus tax. Bed was ok, room would not cool down even with AC on all night but was still comfortable. Fitness area was decent, breakfast was fine. Get there before 930 to avoid the crowds. It was a decent value... More

This was a great experience for traveling with a dog. They have a winding path in the back for walking your pet. The kitchen is very workable. This made it very easy for me to visit with friends and family as I have deadly food allergies and it is very tiresome dealing with eating out. We did eat out as... More

Had an early morning tour at Chatham and Pitt and this was very convenient to both. Parking in garage. Rooms have kitchen and living area seperated from bedroom and bathroom. Rooms are clean. Furniture seemed a little worn but would be great to have so much space for an extended stay! Breakfast was very good also?

This is a solid Marriott property. Our 1 BR suite was large with a door separating the bedroom from the living area. Free breakfast was better than most. The staff was helpful and friendly. The weather was too cold to enjoy our breakfast in the the lovely outdoor seating area. A great place in warmer months to read and drink... More

We recently stayed at the Residence Inn for a week after a procedure at Magee Hospital. While not right next to University area & hospitals, this is close enough and just a little away from the madness. Staff is very helpful & hotel is clean. Breakfast is good & solid wifi. Walking distance dinner will have to be from the... More
