Just joking! The Marriott is next to the Consol Center, where the Pittsburgh Penguins play hockey. I arrived on the night that the Penguins opened up the series with the Senators, and the place was a madhouse with fans. They weren't rowdy, so no problems, but it sure was crowded!
The hotel is in an excellent location, and it was a 10 minute easy walk to the convention center each morning, or to anywhere else in the downtown trinagle area. You could easily walk to the football stadium or the baseball stadium from the Marriott.
My room was very nice, and when I compared it to my colleagures' rooms at the nearby Doubletree and the Westin, both of which cost more (expecially the Westin), I easily concluded that I had the nicest room. It was spacious; the internet connection was fast and easy; the bed very compfortable; the bathroom adequate, and I had a very nice view of the city from the 16th floor looking to the north. The bar downstairs serves some nice draft beer, and has a number of screens for the sports fans. ,I would definitely stay here again.
