Pretty nice hotel, average really. Nicely decorated and clean. Room itself was clean, however, whatever they use to mop the bathroom floor made it really sticky. Decent breakfast. Parking lot can get quite full. Overal enjoyed my stay, and would definitely return. The location from Carson Street makes this the jewel of the south side!

Check in was slow. The hotel itself is nice, comfortable bed. It's in walking distance of nightlife. The free shuttle took us anywhere in a 3 mile radius. We went for a steelers game and it took us right to the free subway. My only complaint is that the bar/resultant was shut down and has been for 6 months. Also... More

My husband and I were on an 8 day road trip and we stayed in 8 different hotels. This Holiday Inn Express was the best of them all. I know that sounds perhaps a bit strange but it is true. And it is all because of the great people they have working here - including the 2 shuttle drivers. Everyone... More

This is a nice place to stay; clean, bright, comfortable. The only problem is that there are TWO train tracks that sound like they run through the hotel. No kidding, there were LOUD train horn blasts every TWO HOURS all night long. We had a terrible night's sleep. So beware; you won't sleep unless you bring ear plugs.

Hotel has hits and misses, but trip purpose is important before choosing this location. I was in town for a Penguins hockey game and location was great for a short walk or the free shuttle service. Given my trip purpose was personal this location was selected for the many dining options near by. What I didn't expect was a college/party... More

Standard updated HI. Comfortable spacious room with modern decor. Nice breakfast room with standard Holiday Inn breakfast spread. What made the stay great was the free shuttle to & from the city center where we could take the free metro to the baseball game. Super convenient. Within 5-10 min. walking distance of many good restaurants and bars. We walked out... More

We booked this hotel through Hotwire, getting (what I think was) a pretty good deal. I was worried after seeing some of the reviews, but we found a clean room, comfy bed, decent view, standard Holiday Inn breakfast - everything we needed for a simple one night stay. Be aware that you are close to train tracks! My wife was... More

The pool area is very nice and room to eat with a group. We brought a group of high school kids on a field trip. Our room was designated non-smoking but the air filter in the heater unit smelled so bad. The beds could be updated-a bit old and not the best sleep I've ever gotten. Staff was friendly, helpful...

Thank you for taking the time to place your experience with us on TripAdvisor! I greatly apologize that we did not meet your expectations.
