I was in the general area on a business trip, and selected this hotel due to its proximity, rate, and as always - favorable TripAdvisor reviews. It did not disappoint - a newer Hampton, so that helps most of the time with amenities, room size, and cleanliness. Nice common areas plenty of room to spread out, and the room was nice size as well. There wasn't a "business center" per se, but a desk with a PC and printer in the lobby - it and all the rooms had free internet access. There was a small fitness center and indoor pool (it was closed while I was there) as well.
The area was decent - the hotel is at the edge of a mall, and there is an Italian restaurant right next door, but nothing else within realistic walking distance. There were, however, plenty of options for eating and shopping within a several-mile radius if you have a car (which you probably would since there's no hotel shuttle). It is pretty much on the FAR outskirts of Pittsburgh, but don't think it's too far from the airport.
Like a lot of other Hamptons of late, the staff was minimal - only one person in the afternoon and evening, and two or three in the morning (including the breakfast manager), but this was never an issue. Check in and out were both error-free and efficient. The breakfast was basic Hampton, but well stocked, the area was kept clean, and again, there was ample room to eat and read the newspaper at the same table.
I'd rate it a 3.5 / 5 - but that's not an option above, so gave it a 4 / 5. Met all the basic criteria for a good stay - including a decent room rate, and would definitely stay here again if in this area.
