My husband and I stayed here recently for three nights during our trip to Pittsburgh. It is extremely well located, just over the bridge from where the Consol Energy Center is, so if you're going for a hockey game, you're well within walking distance. Also, it's only about a block away from Carson Street where there are a lot of... More

I chose this hotel for the location, but was amazed to walk into a gorgeous, upscale, and classy hotel that was well above my expectations. Check in was quick and easy, hallways and rooms felt modern and spotless, and we LOVED the nice free breakfast with views of the city and river. This is now my preferred hotel when coming... More

This is a typical Holiday Inn Express. The room was fine--clean, but could use a little updating. The best thing about the hotel is the shuttle service, which is easier to use than other PIttsburgh hotels I've stayed at. The worst thing is the 3am train horn.

Visited during March Break but staff was able to handle the full hotel. Shuttle service was nice to have. Breakfast was good and always stocked. Breakfast host was AMAZING! Very nice, hospitable and attentive. When a group came when the breakfast station was to close, she warmly welcomed them and brought out more food to ensure they had a good... More

Great location and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Not as fresh/new looking as some of the other Holiday Inn Express hotel's I have stayed at but the rooms were still very nice and breakfast was amazing. Would definitely recommend.

I'm really torn on giving this property a rating - the Staff is Outstanding - Really - more than outstanding! The rooms comfortable (I expected them to be more noisy thus was pleasantly surprised), Breakfast was great and we walked through the Armstrong Tunnels to get to Consol Energy Center for Hockey and to get to downtown! There is a... More

I am here for a work meeting and wanted to come on right away! Alyson at the front desk and Robin were so helpful! I had no problems checking in and both were very informative about the area. The room is very well appointed. I would definitely be back.

I have stayed at this hotel several times in the past 5 years. I choose this hotel for its location but I will be looking elsewhere for my next stay. Rooms definitely need upgraded. Internet was free but quite slow. Overall cleanliness was just average. Best part was staff in breakfast area. Just overall disappointment.

The location is very convenient to bars, restaurants, other hotels, the gateway clipper and shopping. The amenities are very nice and modern, rooms cozy and the beds are quite... More
