My husband was having treatment at Hillman Cancer Center, right down the street, so we booked a room here. They gave us a better rate, since he was a patient. Unfortunately, he was admitted for a few days and I needed to extend my stay. The staff was very kind and compassionate to my situation. Special shout out to Patrick... More

We have stayed at this Marriott several times. We sometimes stay here while visiting our daughter at college. The hotel is in a very convenient location, near shopping and restaurants. Our room was on the 5th floor, was very well appointed. I think our only complaint would have been that we could not get the air conditioner to work. The... More

This is a lovely updated Courtyard hotel - it has a pool (but no hot tub). The parking is valet ($20 unlimited in & out) and it's centrally located for a lot of Pittsburgh fun! Quick hop into downtown, really close to Pitt and Carnegie Mellon. Staff was super friendly!

My parents and I stayed here on a Friday night for Pitt's Accepted Student Day on Saturday. We can always count on Marriott for their exceptional staff and quality of hotel, and this time was no different.

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 didn't like the fact that they charge to park right in front of the hotel. However, If you have to be at UPMC the... More

We stayed here for several nights recently when visiting the University of Pittsburgh. The valet parking service is excellent and affordable at about $18 a day. We came and went several times each day with no problem. There is a full scale Starbucks right in the hotel as well as the typical Courtyard restaurant. All staff were extremely friendly and...

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
