    We chose this hotel due to its proximity to CMU. We flew into Pittsburg airport and took the 28X bus which stopped nearby. We then called the hotel when were @ 5 minutes away and they sent their shuttle to pick us up at no charge although tipping is always good. The entire staff was very friendly and welcoming. We...

    We just needed a place to crash. It's clean, well located, walking distance to doe shops. Has Starbucks attached, nice lobby with free computers for guests use. Saw small pool ad exercise room. Rooms had been recently spruced up with a modern couch and table.

    I chose this hotel for it's location to UPMC. It is right across the street. I looked at staying at others close but decided I would try this because of the walking to UPMC factor.

    I have stayed at the Shadyside Courtyard many times and overall it is a solid property in a great location in Pittsburgh. One thing that has always troubled me is the hotels policy that a Valet only can park your car. This is silly since the parking lot is right in front of the hotel and is gated. Just charge... More

    We stayed two nights here and requested top floor (as Marriott Rewards members) and received that floor. Valet parking only--no self-parking although I thought I had read that was available. Cost of parking is $18/night. You can save money on Sat./Sun. by parking on the street (meter parking ends Sat. at 6 p.m. until Monday a.m.) Hotel lobby is a... More

    Although we did not stay at this hotel, we stopped in the bar/lounge while visiting UPMC hospital across the street. It was a nice experience. There were stools at the bar. There were tables and chairs plus couches to relax on. There is a large tv and a fireplace. it was a great place to wind down.
