I couldn't quite decide on a 3 or 4 rating - 3.5 would be more accurate. It is reasonably priced and of comparable quality to similar hotels. We were there to spend the weekend with friends and knew we wouldn't be in the room very much. The room was clean and spacious - nice kitchen area, sitting area and separate... More

We stayed two nights. Our suite was nicely equipped with full kitchen, dining area, living area, and sleeping alcove. Although the property was fairly old, it was nicely maintained. There were a few stains on the carpet but nothing to really scream about especially since the weather was bad and I knew I'd be dragging in dirt on my shoes.... More

We stayed in room 501. The door opened into one large room with the bed at the back of the room. The sink was in an alcove directly across from the bed and the bathroom which only had a toilet and shower. If you are sharing the bed with a significant other and have to use the bathroom and sink... More

Pretty standard Residence Inn located near the University of Pittsburgh and area hospitals. Very reasonable rate ($129 plus tax) for a studio and if you are going to be here for more than a few nights probably preferable to the Courtyard Shadyside which is about 5 minutes away, but $70 more per night. Parking at $15 per night is steep,... More

We made an unexpected trip to Pittsburgh due to a family member receiving emergency medical treatment. This hotel is central to many hospitals. It seemed to be a safe location. Check in was a breeze. The staff was very friendly and helpful right away. Everything in our room was newer and VERY CLEAN. The bed was comfortable but not so... More

Very friendly staff, couldn't do enough for us and I couldn't recommend more. Hotel is slightly dated but is clean and comfortable and staff are excellent. You will enjoy your stay as we did. Pittsburgh is a nice friendly town and we enjoyed ourselves. The only fault I could find is unlike most states here and Australia they insist on... More

This hotel is a gem. Not sure where some of the negative reviews are coming from. Check-in was prompt and courteous, parking garage very convenient and reasonably priced for this area, room was as-new in condition, and perfectly cleaned, bed was super comfy, breakfast was your standard Residence Inn fare served in a clean area with a attentive staff, and...

I've got five kids, so when we travel as a family, we often choose Marriott Residence Inns, as they are one of the few chains that can accommodate us, and the hotels are generally clean and reasonably priced. I'm a little surprised that Marriott allows this hotel to continue to use its brand. Its an old building that really is... More

We just came back from visiting my cousin at University of Pittsburgh. We stayed at this hotel. I have traveled extensively in the US and abroad. The hospitality of the staff here was exceptional. They couldn't do enough for us. Can you believe free hot breakfast and dinner? I have stayed at Hampton Inn many times and never will again... More

I arrived later than expected and was extremely tired as I was traveling in a moving truck and had traveled for many hours. Although I wasn't happy with the traffic delays that caused me to arrive late, I was appreciative because the hotel room was not as sanitary as I would expect a hotel room to be. The room smelled...
