We actually found Friendship Suites by accident. And what a find it was. Mr. Cox is a very gracious host and offered personal and professional Service. My daughters and I couldn't have been happier with the Beautiful Accommodations. Friendship Suites gets the Highest of Marks in our books. It was like being home. Exceptionally Pristine, with all the amenities of... More

I was faced with a VERY expensive hotel, so I went looking for other options and found Friendship Suites. It was so convenient to where I needed to be, the room was quiet, clean, and very comfortable. It cost about half of what I as going to pay for the big fancy hotel. I found myself wishing I was staying... More

In late February 2014, we moved from Montreal to Pittsburgh to start a new job at CMU. We found Friendship Suites completely by chance while we were searching online for a cheap hotel in Pittsburgh. We expected to stay for about a week before finding a new apartment, but it took much longer and we stayed there in one of... More

I'm thrilled we could accommodate you during those three weeks. I can imagine how stressful it was searching for an apartment, and it means a lot that we could help out in any way. Thanks for taking the time to review us. I hope everything is going well at Carnegie Mellon. If you are ever in the neighborhood, don't hesitate... More

Great choice for short or long term stay, convenient location, close to public transport. Aldi is walking distance as well as some other stores (like Whole Foods, Giant Eagle) and pharmacies. Very attentive and responsive owner (Mr Cox) who offered a free upgrade. Well equipped kitchen, ironing board and other basic facilities. Ideal for a new or returning visitor to... More

I reviewed Friendship Suites a few years ago, but things can change sometimes, and it's good to revisit older reviews. However, I'm happy to report that this is still the ideal place to stay in Pittsburgh, whether you're staying for one night of for three months. Friendship Suites is located in three large, lovely historic houses in a leafy residential... More

Finding Friendship Suites was an unexpected surprise in a convenient neighborhood. Not the usual hotel, it's actually 2 or 3 houses that have been converted into apartments. There are three floors; stairs only. I stayed in a one-bedroom that was clean, comfy, and had everything I needed. Having Bob's 24/7 cell phone number and personal attention to detail was a... More

There was 4 of us & it was a great experience. Cleanliness, location, size, you couldn't want anything more. Our only complaint was the pillows. A little to flat for my "personal taste". BUT, we are already planning our next stay!

I am writing this review while still in the suite that we booked because it was just so great! I never had the chance to meet Mr. Cox but booked by phone and email. He was very professional and took care of every detail. We had his cell phone number but never needed to make use of it. The suites... More

We came to Pittsburg for the first time just to see a teapot exhibit at Morgan Contemporary Glass Gallery. It was with is walking distance from Friendship Suites and we were so pleased to have stayed there. Convenient to good restaurants and like home living instead of staying at a hotel. Great communication with the owner, Robert Cox. Cool neighborhood!... More
