Stayed one night for Pirates game at PNC. Hotwire lists this as a "downtown" hotel. No way! It's on the South Side way over near the Carson St. strip of bars/restaurants/clubs. It was a long, hot hike to downtown and then over to PNC. Good things: spacious room w/ king bed, sitting chair, small sofa, coffee table, coffees maker, fridge/wet... More

First, we checked into a room where the AC was clearly not working on a 90-degree day. The cordial staff seemed more convinced that I was not working the simple machinery correctly as opposed to offering alternatives. I went to Carson St. and returned three hours later. In addition to returning to a jungle heat, the smell from a what... More

Positives: hotel location right on the edge of Southside, so easy walking access to many of the bars, restaurants and clubs on Carson St and also good for visiting local colleges.

I live in Pittsburgh so I have stayed here several times. The shuttle is very convenient and the location is ideal if you plan to go around the South Side or Uptown. The rooms are very large and always clean. I will say that the rooms are a little expensive.

The hotel staff, other than the manager, were very welcoming, courteous and willing to make sure our stay was the best. However, when we first got into our room I noticed that the room (that slept 4) only had 2 towels. I also noticed that the fridge was not cold. I called the front desk and asked for more towels....

Hotel is just across the river from downtown, in the funky Southside neighborhood. It took us only a few minutes to get to different attractions: Station Square, Warhol museum, Strip District. My room was clean and spacious. The breakfast buffet was good. The staff was friendly. I'd stay here again.

Visited my husband who was living here during work and he had a great room but the location was fantastic with a free shuttle within the city including pic up with a quick call. Lots of little bars, restaurants and shopping to be had right out the door.
