It's a good, economical choice if you are touring colleges, which can get expensive. Pros: walkable to Pitt and CMU; free parking and wifi; friendly staff; clean. Cons: very dated and showing wear - but you're not going to be in your room much, anyway. The people in the room next door were smoking, and the front desk immediately got... More

We had a great experience. We arrived early and went in to see if we could at least park our car while we looked around Pittsburgh. They were able to check us into our room three hours early and gave us a shuttle ride to and from the museum. The staff was really nice. Having a Panera in the building... More

The hotel looks a little old from the outside but it was clean on the inside. Our room was a nice sized room and cleaner than some higher end hotels I've stayed in. It is a fairly close walk to campus and would be a perfect walk if the weather isn't too cold. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.... More

When we checked in I asked for a handicap accessible room. I was told that this hotel didn't have any. Not that they were already booked, but that they simply didn't exist. As you can see, we were assigned a room without a grab bar for the toilet. This meant that when my elderly mother, who walks with a cane,... More

The room was large and clean with a balcony. The staff was friendly, and while there was not breakfast, there was a Panera bread on the first level. Parking and wifi were free. Would definitely stay here again!

The Quality Inn University Center is ideally located, within walking distance of Pittsburgh University and an amazing number of great restaurants. The walking meant that I was actually able to lose weight despite eating well! The hotel staff were polite and prompt to provide assistance when I was having trouble with my keycard. Recommend this hotel for those visiting Pitt.
