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...

We realize every room will be different, but our bed was so uncomfortable we had a bad night. It had a depression in the middle. Another problem that was hard to sleep through was the smell from the hotel kitchen that started cooking about5:30 or 6. am - it needs better venting. Otherwise, the staff was nice and the breakfast... More

Great location-definitely park on the street to save the $15 parking fee. They charged $20 for a rollaway bed, which has never happened with a Marriott property before. Room was a little sticky and worn. Breakfast was good.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 evenings on August 30-31, 2014. The front desk services was top-notch and friendly, and the accomodations were very good. Some of the furniture was a bit worn, and a little maintenance was lacking here and there, but overall very good. Parking was $ 15.00 per day, but you had 100% in-and-out privileges. Close... More
