The Parador Inn is a gem in Pittsburgh. Ed and all of the staff are friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The accommodations are spacious and historical/elegant/whimsical. There is lots of common space, indoors and out. Breakfasts are satisfying and different each day (we stayed for three nights). The inn is three blocks away from Heinz Field and the end of the...

We had a great visit at the Parador Inn. Ed & the staff, including the black labs Razor & RJ, were extremely welcoming and friendly. The room, we had the Afican Tulip, was comfortable, roomy, & funky. The fireplace was a nice touch. The breakfast was outstanding. Location was great - just a 20 minute walk to PNC Park for... More

Heavily influenced by the Parador Inn's excellent web page, Trip Advisor reviews and location, we settled on The Parador Inn of Pittsburgh as our base of operations for a three day Blue Jays at the Pirates weekend baseball trip. Host Ed met us at the door, turned us over to assistant Ty and after touring the extensive main floor and... More

We had a great stay and love the delicious breakfast each morning! Very easy to get to and beautiful setting! Saw Mr. R eating his dinner! Sorry mom, we will be staying here again when I'm back in town!

We recently enjoyed our first visit to Pittsburgh, a trip that was made so much better by our choice of the Parador Inn. We brought along our dog, who was welcome in the carriage house located just behind the beautifully restored mansion. No extra fee required! And he was also also welcome in the lovely enclosed courtyard where guests are... More

I travel quite a bit. Luckily most of my work lands me in Caribbean islands. When you come from a place like Seattle where the chance of sun is slim to none... the experience is ephemeral yet perpetual; a perfect yin/yang. To top this off I am an artist and a a writer. My perspective of the world tends to... More

My husband and I live north of Pittsburgh. For my birthday, we had tickets to see "Wicked" at the Benedeum Theater downtown. We have known about the Parador Inn since it opened. We have toured the neighborhood many times over the years. I promised my husband that I would treat him to a stay there for his December birthday. The... More

Lucky for us that Ed, the host, moved his Parador from Florida to Pittsburgh's North Shore. What fun to have tropical surroundings on a bleak wintry weekend. While the Victorian architecture and furnishings were interesting, what really made it interesting were the unique tropical touches Ed gave the Parador. We stayed on the top floor in a huge two-room suite.... More

My wife and I spent our 10th year anniversary at the Parador, we stayed two nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The room was amazing, and had so much character. Breakfast in the mornings execellent and were personally prepared by the owner,Ed. The place exceeded our expectations. Definitely the place to stay if you are ever in Pittsburg

Beautifully restored Victorian with a fun Caribbean flair! We stayed 3 nights in the Allamanda -- a lovely room with fireplace and a separate living room with sleeper sofa. Excellent breakfast, super friendly staff, parking included and so close to Andy Warhol Museum, Mattress Factory and walkable restaurants. Thanks for a great stay, Ed!
