Hotel close to Springdale PA - but on the way to the airport

Going to be visiting Springdale outside of Pittsburgh and want to be relatively close, but am taking super early flight home and would like to stay somewhere on the way to the airport.

Don't want to be as far as the city and don't want to spend the money. Anything aroud Fox Chapel? Or in that direction?

Sorry I'm not that familiar with lodging in that area - although there should be something in the vicinity of the PA Turnpike exit (I-76 / jct with Rt. 28), and there used to be a Holiday Inn off of Rt. 28 near Harmarville, in RIDC park (a business park.)

Depending upon what day of the week you are flying out you may want to spend the previous night west of the city so you don't have rush hour traffic to contend with. There are many many lodging options in the Robinson Township area (just sw of the airport). Microtel is a basic accomodation (but with very small rooms) that might be good for a pre-flight overnight. There are several other properties in that vicinity.

For something closer to the city, but still on the west side, there are several properties in Greentree - Holiday Inn, Radisson and Hampton Inn.

Hope that helps, hopefully someone with more detailed info. about the Fox Chapel vicinity will chime in.

Sharbev, if you have a super early flight home, you probably would be better off staying in Greentree or near the airport. Mapquest indicates that Springdale to the airport is 34.4 miles -- 47 minutes under ideal driving conditions, which can be iffy at any hour when you have to drive over Rt. 28 between Springdale and Pittsburgh.

According to Mapquest, Greentree is 20.7 miles (32 minutes) from Springdale and 15.5 miles (20 minutes) from the airport terminal.

You might want to consider bidding for your hotel room on www.priceline.com. Priceline customers posting on the www.biddingfortravel.com (BFT) website have reported very low winning bids for hotel rooms in Priceline’s Pittsburgh/Airport and Pittsburgh/Greentree zones at both the 3* and 2.5* levels. Generally, these winning bids have nearly always been below $40 per night! Here’s the link to view 20 pages of Pittsburgh winning bid information: …ezboard.com/fpricelineandexpediabiddingpitt… .

These are the Priceline hotels/star quality levels reported on the BFT website:

Greentree -- 3 Star -- Holiday Inn Greentree, Radisson Greentree; 2 Star -- Extended StayAmerica/Carnegie

Pittsburgh Airport (PIT) -- 3 Star -- Marriott Pittsburgh Airport, Crown Plaza, Hyatt Regency Pittsburgh Airport, Four Points by Sheraton Pittsburgh Airport, Embassy Suites Pittsburgh; 2.5 Star -- Amerisuites Pittsburgh Airport, Holiday Inn Pittsburgh Airport, Country Inn & Suites, Courtyard by Marriott/Pittsburgh Airport; 2 Star -- LaQuinta

Pittsburgh North - Allegheny Valley -- 2 Star -- Holiday Inn Pittsburgh North Hills

There are a couple hotels in Harmar which is just a couple miles from Springdale. There is also a Holiday Inn in RIDC park (Fox Chapel area) as the previous poster mentioned.

A new hotel will be opening soon at the Pittsburgh Mills mall which is up the hill from Springdale but I'm not sure if it will be open by the time of your visit.

If you are taking a super early flight home then traffic from Springdale to the airport shouldn't be a problem.
