My husband and I enjoy seeing different Pittsburgh sites and was impressed by Heinz Museum ! Ed's home is amazing and we were in awe of his artifacts. His lovely dogs were enjoyable and only wish we could have spent more time with the canine hosts. Looking forward to a return trip!!

Yet again we had another amazing stay at the Parador. Ed and his staff are truly great hosts. No matter what I have to come to Pittsburgh for, I will be staying at the Parador. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious. We even purchased a cookbook. Paul W

While the proprietor is not talkative, we prefer staying at places where we don't feel like we have to share our life history and that of the B&B owner. We stayed at the top in a double room which was really a daybed and a king in 2 separate rooms. It was very comfortable and quiet. We used the space...

Rooms were nice and antiques terrific. Free parking was helpful too. We got a nice tour of the house from Ed. Our room was huge and a suite. Big living room, big bedroom and cute old-fashioned bathroom. The bed was not quite comfy and the pillows were flat but the bedding was nice. But there was no heat! Ed said...

I never said I wouldn't turn the heat on, what I did say was I don't normally turn it on until November. Temperature on your first day was 61 degrees and the second day was 75 degrees. You asked for a space heater the next morning and I absolutely was not begrudging, I quickly provided one actually before you and...

We stayed at the Inn for a long weekend to explore the sights of Pittsburgh. Ed was very helpful, filled us in on things to know about getting around, about various museums and places of interest, and lots of great historical facts. He offered terrific recommendations, and discounted tickets to a few of the museums we wanted to visit. We...

I suppose the title says it all (you can read my previous review for our first time impressions and experience). The Parador has it all....Victorian mansion atmosphere, central location, breathtaking architecture, plenty of reserved parking right at the house (that's huge in Pittsburgh, believe me), a lovely "secret" garden, and breakfasts filling enough that you won't need lunch. We met...

We stayed in The Parador on the North Shore of Pittsburgh one Friday night in mid September prior to riding the Great Appalachian Passage. The host met us right on time at the 3 pm check-in time and showed all through the beautifully renovated old mansion. It is located on a very pleasant residential street a short walk from the...

We had a great stay in Pittsburgh, enjoying the Nationals-Pirates game at PNC, visiting the Aviary,and generally walking around this wonderful city on a fabulous weather weekend. The Parador is an old building with beautiful period pieces and immense attention to detail throughout. While Ed is not the most social of hosts, he is very knowledgeable regarding the inn and...

The Parador is a great place, clean comfortable and close to everything. We spent the weekend and was able to walk easily to Heinz Field and PNC Park. Breakfast was great and the staff was awesome, we will be back again soon.

Hi, My reservation system can't do a search by city or zip code, so I'm not sure who you are. But I certainly appreciate your review. A business can't purchase advertising as powerful as a personal recommendation. Thank you, ed
