My son is in a wheelchair and we were going to be passing through Pittsburgh. We chose Wyndham because they had a two queen room that was wheelchair accessible. After confirming that the bathroom was wheelchair accessible, I was told that they have a shuttle that would take us anywhere locally. The hotel is downtown with limited parking that was not free. Also, there was no one to help with the luggage. This made it very hard for me to assist my son in transferring to his chair from the car and then getting the luggage into the hotel. The lady who waited on me was very rude and not at all friendly. We went to our room and it was not accessible. I called the desk and was told they would be right up with keys to a new room. Fifteen minutes later, they called back and said that they can get us an accessible room, as if it was even questionable. So, we finally get settled in our room and I call the shuttle to take us to Station Square for a few hours. I am informed that the shuttle is NOT accessible. We received poor service from everyone in the hotel and, in some cases, no service at all. Skip this hotel. If you are in a wheelchair, you are on your own.
