Stayed here for NYE and a Pittsburgh game, the hotel itself was a standard Hilton...the shuttle service on NYE and getting around the city was great and definitely made getting to/from the game easy. Didnt have a chance to try the food, but the bar had a decent atmosphere and friendly bartenders

My boyfriend and I stayed here for New Years, and we both thought their customer service was exceptional. They also make it really convenient to get around by offering a shuttle service. I would highly recommend staying here.

Absolutely worst hotel. Front desk staff, Lyndsey, very rude. Room walls very thin. Can hear phone conversations of guests in next room. Convenient for people with family at UPMC but not for business travelers.

The Hilton Garden Inn on Forbes Avenue was a clean, friendly and safe place to stay. The breakfast served by Diane and her staff was great. The valet parking was inexpensive, quick and easy. The location is near the University of Pittsburgh and all the hospitals.I recommend this location to all.

We were in town for the Pitt Christmas Swim Meet so we spent a lot of time going from hotel to pool and back. The shuttle was outstanding! So nice to not have...
