Very friendly staff, clean and updated rooms, and prime location make this the best choice for a University of PITT visit. Love that they have coffee, tea, water with fresh fruit and cookies in the lobby. Friday happy hour is very good as well.

Great stay. Room was very clean and quiet. Only stayed one night, but slept like a log. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The one thing I don't understand is why I need six pillows on my bed. I only use one. I can see two, but six? Housekeeping has to change these pillow cases every day for overnight stays.... More

This was our third stay at this hotel this year, filled with University of Pittsburgh activities and events. Each time, we have been treated courteously and professionally by all staff members. From the front desk to housekeeping to valet service, everyone is more than accommodating, always ready with a smile, and willing to help out. We requested extra towels and... More

As always with Garden Inns the hotels follow a nice pattern which is a clean comfortable room and, for us, across from Forbes Hall our sons freshman dorm. Parking is all valet as I guess from the entrance it's a pretty crazy lot. Staff was welcoming and for the day wore we love Pitt or we love Carnegie shirts since... More

The location is good if you are moving a student into Pitt. It's a very nice hotel with complimentary coffee and pop corn. Parking is valet only. Recommend you stay in a room on a high floor because of the street noise.

Great location for colleges! Staff was accommodating beyond normal. I think these employees has previous Disney training. Rooms were standard not exceptionally large but comfortable. Typical Hilton comfort in beds which is why I only stay at Hilton properties.

Well we were in Pitt again to bring my son back to college. Room was comfy. Staff was wonderful and accommodating. We have stayed here many times over the past years and always a good experience. You are close enough to walk thru campus. Thumbs up!

Nice Room. Clean hotel. Good location for college tours! I kept my car in their garage and we took the hotel shuttle to colleges for the tours. Very helpful & friendly staff. We only stayed one night but I would rebook again.
