Stayed here in August, 2012, as part of a sports road-trip. Stayed a bit outside of downtown as it was a bit cheaper than the downtown hotels (and free parking).
It's close (walking distance, 5-7 minutes) from the light rail train (LRT) line (South Hills Village Station). This was very convenient as it took us straight downtown for the baseball games as well as tourist activity.
Check-in was swift and efficient. Room was nice, I'd give it an 8.5/10. Some fixtures could use a little updating, but it in no way affected the stay. I'd stay here again for sure!
