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

Our stay at the Friendship Suites was the perfect accommodation and location for visiting CMU and Pittsburgh. We couldn't have enjoyed more our beautifully furnished and well equipped two bedroom suite. The kitchen had every convenience and we were able to prepare dinner and breakfast while enjoying the company of our family. Mr. Cox, the proprietor, was always available to... More

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),...
