I stayed here a week ago with a coworker for one night. I wish we had stayed at the other hotel from the night before which was further away. The walls in the room appeared slightly outdated and could use a new paint job. The elevators did not work upon check-in due to a false fire alarm, however, they eventually... More

Stayed here on a busy Saturday night. Jack at the front desk was great, we saw him at check-in and check-out. We had a King room on a corner and it is definitely larger than a standard sized room, so that was nice. The bed and pillows were amazing, as was the shower pressure - these are the 2 biggest...

Of all the hotels we stayed at this was one of the cleanest pet friendly hotels we found! The rooms were nice and the staff was courteous and helpful. Security wise- We were slightly concerned that anyone has access to the pool area but it wasn't an issue.

Stayed here for two nights for a family wedding. I had never been to Pittsburgh before and was quite pleased at the area this hotel was in. For those traveling there was enough things within walking distance so you didn't have to get out and drive in an unfamiliar place. The room we were in was HUGE and had a... More

We stayed here while attending a family function in Pittsburgh. Very convenient to the area without being in the center of town. Rooms are good size, clean and comfortable. Staff is very accommodating. We had breakfast in the restaurant. Excellent selection and good, basic food. Plenty of parking. While we were there the hotel was host to a barber shop... More

The location is the highlight of this hotel, after that it gets very average. Booked through the IHG website and ended up with a pre-paid and totally inflexible room rate: annoying but not the fault of the hotel. However, checked-in, with platinum status and ended up with a few dollar breakfast discount voucher: this is where the value wheels start... More

Dear t-bird 2002, Thank you for your input regarding your stay back in December. Our goal is to always receive 5 star ratings, and we are disappointed to see that we fell short in your estimation. Apparently you reserved a “Book Early and Save” rate which, although restricted in the ability to cancel, is a steeply discounted rate. We do,... More

Had to go to Pittsburgh for family funeral. Crowne Plaza offers a bereavement rate, which was great. Staff was very friendly, greeted us every time we went in or out. Due to some eye issues, I needed to stay at hotel and couldn't attend funeral. I sat in lobby to get out of room for awhile. Two different hotel employees... More
