Stayed 2 nights for a Pirates game. Friendly staff. Room was clean and spacey for 3 (king w/sofa bed). Close to many pubs and restaurants nearby (Highly recommend Fat Head Saloon on E Carson). Free hot breakfast buffet was adequate. While shuttle didn't take directly to ball park, it does drop you off by the "T" which is a free... More

We stayed at this hotel for a bachelorette party August 8-10th. We had two rooms, one with 2 queen beds and one with 2 queen beds and a pull out couch. Overall, the hotel was great. We had rooms 612 and 615 both of which were very quiet and in the middle of the hallway with minimal traffic. I am... More

Location close to East Carson Street which is an up and coming area with lots of cool bars and some live music. It is also close to the Monongahela Incline which is truly amazing and a must see in Pittsburg. It brings you to the top of Mount Washington, where you can see forever. It is a decent walk to...

We were here for a night's stay as a family. Having an infant and a toddler, they made sure we were able to check in quickly and gave us a spacious room. We got the room for a really good price and the complimentary shuttle in the southside meant we could travel into town as a family without the headache... More

The front desk staff was incredibly friendly and cheerful. The shuttle drivers were as well, especially considering it was the Fourth of July and the city was busy. The housekeeping staff were so nice and the room itself was spotless. The breakfast was surprisingly well done for a hotel with "express" in its name. The convenience of the shuttles as... More

I arrived at the hotel, booked for us by our company, with 3 colleagues and 3 vehicles in tow that we were transporting in for an event display in Pittsburgh. I called ahead to confirm availability of early check-in, as we were slated to arrive an hour early and needed to unload our personal belongings before proceeding to the event... More

i booked this hotel at the last minute, and was not disappointed. The front desk staff was attentive and very patient with some rude guests that were being difficult. Also, the shuttle service was great! Mr. Chips was super helpful and served the role of concierge. I will definitely return the next time I am in Pittsburg.
