“The best rooms and great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

This was our special anniversary splurge that didn't cost an arm or a leg. The Deluxe room on the higher floors were an excellent upgrade and we had a great time using the binoculars that came with the room.

Room service was just as promised and boy, did they deliver. The front desk was also exceptional as they accommodated my request for more coffee and shampoo within 5 minutes.

Location-wise, this hotel was right in the middle of everything. It is less than a block from Market Square and also a block from Heinz Hall.

We will be coming back for our next anniversary!

*Note: next time, we might consider the upgrade to the largest hotel room in the city. They offered it to us and we didn't think we would need it... next time, we may take the offer!

Room Tip: Higher floors = great view of the city

I loved everything about this hotel, except that I didn't have more time to spend there. The lobby is a sight to see, complete with a fireplace as you walk in through the revolving doors--very welcoming on a cold day.

The large room was excellent, with a great bathroom as well. The fitness center was impressive. I wish I had had time for the spa. Breakfast was delicious in the restaurant.

I will be back!

Hotel looks fresh and new..great lobby and entrance area with live jazz on weekends. Gym is a 10 ..rooms are large and modern..bathrooms good..give it an 8 ..Restaurant good but overpriced ..lacks atmosphere and coming from new york's choices ,,just nothing special .save your money .Comfy beds
Service had a few slips but overall the effort was there..nice warm people . pittsburgh is a small town ..really ..though its a city you just get the feeling its people like it that way..and hotel reflects that ..its a Fairmont ..very nice decor ..but its still not a major city and lacks the training and subtleties f a ritz or four seasons
Value was great though and thats why iI'd return ..

One of the most well-appointed hotels that we have stayed in. The rooms were large and nicely decorated with great city views (with a floor to ceiling glass wall) and bathrooms which were well laid out and luxurious. Nice touches including an anniversary tray and champagne. The rooms even had binoculars for sight seeing! We were pleased with the service staff including those in the health center. We will go back again.

Room Tip: We thought the deluxe rooms provided a nice upgrade for the cost.

I'm still checked into this hotel, but I'm going to go ahead and write my review now, as I don't think I'll be disappointed in the next 11 hours before checkout. This is a clean, modern hotel. Staff are extremely helpful-- including escorting guests to the elevator to show them how to use the card-security system. Jazzy cocktails at the bar. Great gym-- the largest I've seen on business travels. Functional large hotel room with functional large bathroom. The capper? Room service. Killer food-- the beet salad, vegetarian burger, and sweet potato fries were great! I'm only here for one night, but this hotel far exceeded my expectations. I'm hoping to find myself in Pittsburgh again soon.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week over the summer and everything abt this hotel was fabulous! We even had a late check in and everyone was still very gracious and friendly. Very helpful getting all of our things to our room. Our view of the city was amazing. It was great to be in the heart of the city, we loved being close to everything. The concierge was the best. Very knowledgable. The hotel bar was so modern and full of very good and quirky drinks. The bartender was very nice and very social. We look forward to staying here in the future!!
