Hotel is short walk from Alumni Hall where Pitt tours start, get a discount with code. Go for higher level floor, quieter and easier to get an elevator down. 818 has a bit of a view, nothing spectacular.

Reservation was easy, and allowed me to select my room, which I did on the 9th (top) floor, with a view of the Cathedral of Learning. Room was typical Hilton Garden Inn, double queen beds. Room was clean, and quiet on the 9th floor. Walk to University of Pittsburgh was easy along Forbes Ave, and Pamela's Diner for breakfast was...

I stay at this Hilton every time I'm in town, Joel, Alison, Marie, Michelle and Steven all take great care of me in the restaurant. Good Food, good drinks and good company. Many times they prepare off menu food and drinks. Very low key atmosphere that really caters to their clientele.

Hotel is very nice and welcoming. If you happen to meet Morgan at the front desk, she is truly exceptional. Be ready with the van driver, who can be a bit odd but he's okay. If you happen to be visiting Carnegie Mellon University, this is a very convenient place to stay.

Dropped into the restaurant of this fairly new hotel in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh, part of a group of 50 men for dinner. Straightforward, tasty buffet of egg and flour battered chicken breast, sautéed vegetables, blended brown rice and raspberry coated cake. After dinner 20 of us visited the lobby bar and restaurant. The servers were cordial, flexible allowing...

The staff were all very nice, including the valet staff. The hotel is a standard HGI. Room was clean....BUT. If you want sleep...do NOT stay in Room 904. I just spent two sleepless nights while people kept going in and out of a ridiculously slamming exit status door from 11pm to almost 3am. I actually put notes on the door...
