is the area around the Double tree safe? cab fares?

Staying at the Doubletree in August, what will the average cab fare cost from the hotel to Univ. Pitts. Med. Center? Any good plays or events during the week of Aug 12?

I have stayed at the Doubletree and enjoyed it. I don't know about cab fares. Downtown is very walkable. For plays or events try this site: www.pgharts.org

I recommend taking an incline ride (there are two inclines) up to Mt. Washington at night to view the city and lights. It is really pretty. You could walk, or the hotel might have a shuttle to Station Square where you can catch the incline.

Hi- I very much recommend the Dale Chiluhly exhibit at the Phipps Conservatory, in Oakland not too far from UPMC. It is open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights.

I don't know what kind of music you like but check www.wyep.org for any concerts at smaller clubs that might be in town that week. Also you can walk from Doubletree to PNC Park if you like baseball. If you've never been here before, be sure to go up the incline.

Note that Pittsburgh does not have the greatest cab service. Plenty of buses go from downtown to Oakland. and you might find it more convenient to hop one. The Doubletree area is safe and there is a sprinkling of nice restaurants nearby but downtown is not the center of Pgh. nightlife.
