I stayed here for a two week visit to CMU. The suite I stayed in had a bedroom with en suite, and a kitchen/living room. There are shops very close by, so despite not having a car, I was able to get stuff to cook for myself, and both CMU shuttles go from stops about 5 minutes away on foot,... More

I often visit Pittsburgh and always stay at the Friendship Suites, if my stay is longer. This is not a hotel but well equipped apartments are provided. Television, telephone, internet and a functioning kitchen are included. Shops, bus stops, and good restaurants are close. The area is safe. Everything functions in the house and the manger Mr. Cox is very... More

This place is located in the Shadyside area in PA. It is a corner building so there is some traffic noise in the evening and morning. We stayed in the first floor suite which had a front and back door entrance. We also had a free parking spot. The suite was very clean. There was a full kitchen, a living... More

I visit Pittsburgh every year, and I always stay at the Friendship Suites. Everything I need is within a few minutes walking distance, including: bus stops and university shuttle stops, grocery stores (Whole Foods, Giant Eagle, and more), some of the best new restaurants and bars in Pittsburgh (on Penn, Centre) as well as some old favorites (on Walnut, Ellsworth),...

We stayed at the Friendship Suites for 3 1/2 weeks while our son went through a complicated surgery at UPMC-Shadyside. The location was very convienent, walking distance to the hospital. The suite was well appointed, furnished and squeaky clean. The TV service had a great array of choices with no extra charge. The owner, Robert Cox was very accomodating, friendly... More

Our recent stay went without a hitch. Room fit our needs and was very clean. Kitchen was set up with most everything we needed. Asked for more pillows and got them immediately. We were visiting our son at CMU and do like to stay a bit closer to campus and near the Shadyside shopping district so we can walk to... More

My family recently stayed for Univ of Pittsburgh's Parents weekend and a college visit to CMU.. We were pleasantly surprised at the size, full kitchen and all the conveniences of home. It was extra nice as I had 2 older teenagers- that just don't fit in a shared hotel room anymore. Mr Cox was very accommodating and attentive to our... More

My wife and I (both professors at California universities) stayed at the Friendship Suites October 17-20 while attending a conference at CMU. Because there were other events ongoing at CMU and Pitt that weekend, we had not been able to get a regular hotel close to the conference site, and had a reservation at a Hilton about 25 minutes away...

I stayed four nights at Friendship Suites during my visit at the Carnegie Mellon University and was very happy and satisfied with everything. The suite I stayed at was extremely clean, well decorated, functional and very comfortable. It was great to have a full kitchen with a full size fridge, microwave, coffee machine and anything else you can imagine. It... More
