We were in Pittsburgh to visit our children at the University of Pittsburgh and to go to the football game. We have stayed at Courtyard Shadyside many times and have always been satisfied. The staff is professional and friendly. Melissa, a front desk employee, was cheerful and pleasantly surprised us with an upgraded room.

I was in town for my father's funeral last week. We needed a place to receive guests afterwards and I had to plan something very last minute. Melissa, the sales coordinator with whom I worked, was amazing. She went above and beyond to get something planned quickly for us. The afternoon was lovely and most importantly, easy. It gave us...

There is also a van that they can use to take you to nearby restaurants. The room was nice. I thought the pillows were too fat; I used the... More

Everything here was up to par. I did not spend more than an hour or two outside of sleeping on site, so I cannot comment about the pool or other amenities. I highly recommend finding your own parking once you drop-off your luggage. The nearby neighborhood seemed extremely safe as late as two/three in the morning, so skip that valet... More

We have stayed in several hotels while visiting our child at Carnegie Mellon University. This is one of our favorites. Nice rooms, clean, staff is friendly, and a great location. Neighborhood is really nice as well.

The hotel is in a very convenient area for shopping, seeing the sites and getting around Pittsburgh in general. Our room was OK.
