I was very pleased with our stay at the Holiday Inn. We make biweekly trips to Pittsburgh Children's Hospital. We've stayed at 4 different area hotels and we've decided this will be the one we choose for future visits. The front desk staff was extremely friendly at check in and check out(both were named John). They gave us suggestions for... More

Our stay at this hotel was a pleasant one. The people at the front desk greeted us with a smile everytime we approached them, right from registering ourselves in. We bought our room off of a deal from Hotwire and we were very pleased with the room. It had a king sized bed, a small couch and microwave and fridge.... More

Stayed here one night in October with a group of friends. Great Location right in southside which gives you access to all the bars and best nightlife in pittsburgh. Rooms are spacious and the refrigerator and mini bar area added a nice touch to the room. The pull out sofa was rather small though. Bar next door was nice for... More

This property is exactly what you'd expect: mostly clean, outdated TVs and other room amenities, and things work well for the most part. You can certainly do worse. What sets this property apart is the pool, which I didn't get to take advantage of, unfortunately. The breakfast was OK but nothing special--the best part is the room you eat it... More

The hotel is located by a bunch of bars, and we were in Pitt with out 16 year old to visit colleges. The shuttle service is great, but I think all the hotels offer it. The hotel could have been cleaner and the breakfast was totally average. The staff was helpful and nice but did not love the location.

So, I spend months reading and re-reading reviews about different hotels in the Pittsburgh area prior to my trip. I opted to look past the past reviews of railroad horns and party noises to give the HIE-Southside a try, afterall, the pictures looked great. First let me say the "party" or "bar scene" atmosphere didn't bother me, in fact, it... More
