Stayed two nights in this lovely large mansion in an interesting historic setting in Pittsburgh across from a park. The first floor was lovingly restored some years ago and has a rather dark Victorian feel. The sweeping stair case in the front hall is notable. The room we were in was fine - a little dowdy and the bathroom a little hard to work around in terms of places to put things. Wish the shower was a little hotter and the walls a little thicker - but hey, this is an old mansion. All that was balanced by the wonderful setting for the breakfast - in a "bar" that feels like you're on a train. Nice selection of fruit, muffins and one can make waffles. Another plus is being able to go out the door walk to the Andy Warhol museum, the Mattress factory (modern art) and the baseball and football stadiums aren't far. While it was too cold, in the summer, I imagine it would be nice to sit in the comfortable chairs on the large front porch. And the inn owners are knowledgeable about the city and can direct you places. Pittsburgh seems to be an interesting, creative city that is worth several visits.
