I usually stay at the University Center Holiday Inn Express when I come to pittsburgh (son at PITT), but it was fully booked last weekend, so I tried this location. The rooms are newer and nicer here -- and very clean. Loved the flat screen TV, the little kitchen area, the comfortable bed, and I was lucky to have a... More

Dear Management of the Holiday Inn Express, I had to send an email and let you know that I was truly impressed when I stayed the Pittsburgh/South Side Holiday Inn Express & Suites. Of course, I have managed to forget the names of the lovely staff people who assisted me…’senior moment’. But I will say that upon check-in your staff... More

Pittsburgh was the second stop in a six night summer vacation in August 2012. Chose this hotel to use up some points. Came upon the hotel quick after crossing the bridge and found entry challenging-almost missed it. Once inside, the mood was very relaxed. Mgmt at this property has hired the best complement of staff I have ever encountered. This... More

Just stayed here this past weekend for a Steelers game. The hotel is clean, rooms are spacious and the staff is very friendly. We didn't use the comp breakfast because its just a short walk to Carson Street where you can find a great little place O'Learys for an awesome and hearty breakfast for reasonable price.

Besides the awful view on first floor the hotel was OK. Spacious and clean room, friendly staff. Don't expect too much of the complementary breakfast. Getting food after 10pm can get difficult, since attached restaurant closes early. Overall a decent hotel, but too expensive for what you get.

I was there for two nights for business with two others. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. The room was recently renovated so everything was spacious and clean. We used the shuttle service which was helpful. The pillows were pretty flat and the mattress seemed slighty worn out... not too comfortable but good enough for some sleep. The only... More
