Our son goes to Carnegie Mellon and we feel so lucky to have found this hotel for all of our stays. We can walk to everything in Shadyside -- shopping, restaurants, etc. and it's a 5 minute drive to CMU. This place is always clean and has a very nice lobby. We always look forward to coming because the staff... More

We usually Priceline when staying in Pittsburgh but we didn't have luck on this busy Saturday night. We ended up using points to stay at the Courtyard. The hotel is very modern, clean, and had great service. The location is close to Shadyside, CMU, and Pitt. We generally prefer to stay downtown but this worked out fine. The views from... More

I stayed here because I had a free night certificate from a Marriott promotion, and this was the only Marriott branded hotel available for that evening where I could use the certificate.

The hotel is located right across the street from UPMC in Shadyside. Having an appointment very early in the morning, we decided to stay over the night before and book an additional night for follow up. We asked for a handicapped accessible room because we would have a wheelchair [transport chair] for this trip. I also requested a shower with... More

Overall, this was a decent Marriott. The room was nicely done and comfortable, and the furniture in the room was a bit "funky" but we liked it. The downsides were: (1) it was incredibly expensive ... over $300 / night, which is not normally what we pay for a Marriott, (2) the valet parking was the only parking available and... More
