I put my parents in this hotel during my graduation last week. Overall it was fantastic except for a few little things, hence the 4 stars. You really can't beat the location and the attitude of the staff.
Pros: The staff give you the Marriott/Westin type of treatment when you check-in. The lobby is nice to sit in. Plenty of fresh cookies and fruit water is available. Our room had 2 queen beds in a somewhat cozy room but the bathroom was relatively large. Also, the physical condition of the room was pleasant; seems like the place was renovated. It's on Pitt's campus but about 1/2 mi from Soldier's & Sailor's memorial and CMU stadium.
Cons: Parking is $18/night for valet with no other options, so be prepared. (I moved their car to a friend's street for free and chauffeured them around myself.) My mom said that the bathroom was kind of dark. Lastly, I was irritated that the hotel shuttle kept taking the loading zone outside their lobby so that I had to wait for my folks in an illegal zone on the street - also got a nasty, rambling lecture from the valet guy about how he "did me a favor" telling me to get the hell away from the curb to avoid a ticket. That's what cost this hotel the 5th star for me.
