“nice hotel next to arena”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

I was in Pittsburgh on Business in early April. I arrived pretty late and had dinner at the hotel restaurant. it was really good. Seafood was very well prepared. The staff was very welcoming. The hotel is in a very convenient location and the bell staff was extremely courteous.

We stayed for our sons graduation and we have been here before. They offer a discount rate for family of students at Duquesne University. There is a shuttle but we were so close we never had to use it. Staff is friendly, service is great and the facility is in good condition. Food is great too! There is a Starbucks connected to the hotel for all you coffee drinkers. Would stay again-No doubt.

Room Tip: Starbucks is on the ground floor.

We stayed here on a weekend overnight for a college graduation. The hotel was in a great location for where we needed to be. There was a convenient shuttle downtown and the driver (Paul D.) was more than helpful in getting us around especially in the rain.
We ate breakfast in the restaurant and I'd give the buffet a 5 out of 10. It needed more of a variety of food. Homemade granola was delicious. Service was so so. Front desk staff was nice, but we asked a question or 2 about the area and they were not too knowledgeable. Bellhop staff was good. Housekeeping didn't seem overly friendly!

Room Tip: High floor most likely to have a better view.

Stayed at this Marriott for the proximity to Duquesne U. for a graduation. Exterior of hotel needs some painting and upgrades. Very worn infrastructure. Some local dining options nearby. Room was nice on the 19th floor and breakfast was sufficient. Could have used some additional options at the buffet but quality of food there was good overall. Overall might choose another Marriott option if in area again as Hotel needs some upgrades - overall room quality, bedding, tv's and general wear. Pittsburgh is an old city and this hotel shows it.

This hotel has it all. Location, kind caring staff, great chefs, easy access and beds that help you sleep like a baby. As a business travelor and a long week of meetings in several states I was pleasantly surprised by this full service Marriott

Room Tip: ask for a high room, great views of the city

I regularly stay here while in business, and the service and quality never falters. I have stayed at a lot of Marriott hotels around the world, and I am pleased this one maintains the high standards Marriott strives to achieve.

It's ideally located for the Consol centre, which is great if you are attending an event. It might be a little packed, however, during these times if you are wanting a more quiet stay and availability at the bar! Another benefit is the shuttle service, which I have also seen running on a weekend, to help get you places when the Pittsburgh weather take a quick turn!

The staff are very helpful and friendly, the rooms are always immaculate and comfortable. The food variety in the executive lounge is better than most Marriott's. Additionally the hotel food is nicer than most of the others I have stayed at, both room service and bar food.

The gym has the basic selection you would expect of machines, with one multi functional weight machine and a rack of free weights, although space to use them is limited. There is also a pool and very nice changing facilities. If the gym was bigger with a few more facilities e.g. some extra bikes/rowing machine/weight machines then it would be absolutely perfect!

In summary always happy to stay here, and will continue to do so.

Room Tip: The executive lounge is on the 20th floor, so while having a room on this floor is useful, if you ar...
