“Comfortable, Clean, and a Friendly Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The Wyndam Grand in downtown Pittsburgh was a last-minute choice for a business trip when the hotel I thought I had booked, the one with the conference, bungled the reservation. You always worry when you have to fly half way across the country to a hotel you didn't intend to stay at, and only researched for a few minutes before committing. Thankfully, this worked out exceedingly well, and would be my first choice if I were to return to Pittsburgh.

The price for the room was a deciding factor in my case, and thankfully this hotel came through with a rate 30% under some of the hotels in the area. Again, I was a little worried, but it worked out great. For my $139 I got a comfortably appointed room with a single King size bed, a nice flat screen television, a suitable desk (I had a lot of work to do, so the fact that the desk was comfortable and not for show was awesome), and a wonderful view of the downtown district. The windows are floor to ceiling, and I found myself turning off the lights and just looking out the window while on the phone--really wonderful.

I found the staff polite and helpful with directions, the building quiet, and everything very clean. I love all of those things in a hotel.

Room Tip: Great views facing into the downtown area on the East side of the building. Great restaurants wit...

The Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown was very nice. Everyone was great, very helpful. Great location.....would be super in the summer to stay there and walk the area. Actual Bar area, stools, were not quite as large as I would have thought considering there are 700+ rooms. Dining Room is great, very large with lots of windows which is terrific. Would be great to add 'some color' in dining room, plants, flowers, festive, carribean. The neutral colors are always a guarantee but adding some more character is 'fun'. Will be staying there again!

First, I must admit, we found a great deal on Travelzoo for one night at $99. Had I paid full price, $268, I would have screamed. This used to be a Hilton and is being refurbished as a Wyndham. That said, rooms nice and beds comfy. We had a room which faced the fountain which was fabulous though the fountain is currently nonoperational undergoing its own facelift. The shower ceiling and the floor of the shower seams had mold. On plaster above the shower, obvious black mold.

The concierge phoned a restaurant and said we would be right over, did not need reservations. We don't know which restaurant he ultimately phoned as the one we wanted and walked to was closed--chairs on tables, lights out closed. Had a lovely Italian dinner instead of NO cuisine.

Please take care of details before opening. Fabulous location.

Room Tip: Ask to face a river

The staff was very short with people. seemed as if they were looking down on us. we felt very out of place n NEVER felt welcome. For the amount of money we spent, there were very few aminities. Our room was extremly small and dirty! I will not recomment or go back to this hotel EVER!

When we walked into the lobby we were not greeted by any staff member. The woman who I checked in with was not friendly, did not greet me or tell me to enjoy my stay. I booked a room with a river view -- I had a view of the roof!! If I pressed my face to the glass and looked to the right I saw a tiny bit of the river. My window was also splashed with what looked like tar, all over it. I did not have a "Do Not Disturb" sign hanging on the knob inside my room, my daughter and I were staying from Fri-Sun and I did not want housekeeping service. I called the front desk Friday night and requested no housekeeping service and they said, "No problem, we will make a note and inform housekeeping". Well, we went to breakfast early Saturday morning, came back to the room and housekeeping had been there. They also put a $100 hold on my bank account in addition to the cost of the room. In addition, they charged my card the cost of the room on Friday night and again on Sunday when I checked out. Monday when I checked my bank account I was double charged for the room and this wasn't corrected until Wednesday. Although the room was clean it was terribly small and smelled of stale cigarette smoke.
