Very loud and noisy. I can hear clearly the conversation from the next door neighbor. They were chatting late into the night, after midnight. There was also a high pitch noise non-stop somewhere. The front desk staff were professional and polite. Room looks clean and spacious.

We visited on Jan 7th...the good ...the place was clean had good service and a nice pool. The bad... The appliances looked like they were 20 years old, but in good condition, the furniture was kind of gross and dirty. It looked like the furniture was 10 years old and stained, banged up, scratched up and obviously had a cat...

We travel a lot throughout the year, Great Smokies, Niagara Falls, NFL games, etc. one of the MUST HAVES for me is a nice hot bath before checking out in the morning. We decided to come "home" to Pittsburgh for the New Year Eve (2017) celebration, and since I have stayed at both this property and the Residence Inn property...

For a large group, this was a great place to stay. The rooms were decent sized and there was a pool too. The gym was okay albeit smelled strongly of chlorine. Had a store inside, which was nice. Also a good breakfast selection.

The staff are great and helpful. Top shelf. The breakfast in the morning was better than most other Residence Inns I have stayed at in that they had scrambled egg whites, which I appreciated. The free shuttle is a plus.

It is impressive driving up to the property as you do drive through a very notable college in PA; however, the property is definitely not up to Marriott's standards. The entire hotel is in much need of a renovation.

This hotel is in desperate need of an update. Chair in the suite was terribly worn. Matrass was sagging. It is over priced. We left after one night and found another hotel. You have to pass through a maze to get from the parking lot to reception and then to your room.

We happened to be in town on a busy weekend--steelers game, Pitt game and more. They charged us 200 a night for this less than three star hotel. I've stayed at five star properties for less. The bed had a dip in the middle--not super comfortable and housekeeping did not make our bed or replenish any dishes when making their...
