Very Nice & accommodating hotel. everything about it is satisfying for us. we enjoy everything about it especially the location. But, the parking was the only main problem, self parking was a very difficult to find & extremely expensive.

Thank you for celebrating your husband's birthday with us! We love special occasions. We regret your frustration with parking and would suggest valet parking when you next visit....and we hope it's sooner than later! Thank you for staying with us.

The staff at the front desk was more helpful than any other hotel staff that I have ever dealt with! The hotel was very clean and luxurious and had everything that I needed during my stay. I would recommend that anyone stay here for business or pleasure in Pittsburgh!

Hotel staff was great, room was terrible, bathroom very small, no view and way overpriced. Very, very disappointed when you pay $300+ for room and its that bad. Very very disappointed to pay that much for a crappy room in a wonderful city.

Gary, thank you for your feedback. We appreciate your compliment regarding our staff, but certainly are disappointed your accommodations did not meet your expectations. We do have a variety of room sizes given the age of the hotel and numerous renovations over its 100 years. We hope to have another opportunity to welcome you back before too long.

Stayed here after the Springsteen concert. Upscale and clean, rooms were smallish but cozy. Would surely stay here again. the ONLY detracting factor was.... We went to the Taproom for a drink. The Lone Bartender was doing a great job but clearly could have benefited from some help. He did a great job, poor guy was just so busy. The...

Great hotel with old world charm, BUT with a Starbucks - lol! Love this hotel, clean, quiet and great beds! The location is great for my business needs, but also in close proximity to restaurants and a CVS. Further, the Tap Room allows for wine to be taken to your room for your enjoyment in privacy.

Luxurious lobby area with plenty of seating to sit with wifi, as many people were doing. I was in Pittsburgh for a meeting close to the Hotel, within a six minute walk. It was freezing at the time, (January) but the walk to the meeting center (Rugus) was refreshing. Valet parking is available, also there is a parking garage which...

This hotel was selected by my company for a meeting, but I would definitely choose to stay there again. It was great to check in on-line, walk in and pick up the key without waiting in line. The hotel is beautiful. Our meeting wasn't over until nearly 11:00 pm and we were pleased that the restaurant was still serving food....
