We booked this hotel via Priceline. We were in town for a wedding and stayed at the hotel for three nights. Our family is originally from Pittsburgh, but have lived out of state for 18 years. We have family still in Pittsburgh so we do periodically make visits, but have never stayed in-town. As far as location goes, I would call the location up-town versus midtown or downtown. Parking as mentioned in other reviews is expensive, but upon doing some research I found that most of the city hotels charged a similar amount for parking. Though we did use our car on several occassions, we used the T which is Pittsburgh's in-city subway to get over to Station Square/Southside. The hotel is only two blocks from the Steel City Plaza T Station. I don't think the hotel staff must mention this option much considering when I ask what the price was they really didn't know. T prices range from a $1-$2 in general. We also made use of the hotel shuttle to go to the Strip District. We had no problems whatsoever with this service. We were on the 14th floor. We had a nice view of Mellon Arena. Room seemed clean. Beds were comfortable. This is not a luxury hotel but I would consider it average to above average. Depending on the price you get, it can be a really good deal. I wouldn't pay the list price, but I wouldn't pay that much for a hotel room period! Staff was accomodating to our needs...no problems. One evening there was a lot of rowdiness in the hallway (late). I was just getting ready to call the front desk when things settled down. My only other complaint is lack of options for breakfast. The hotel restaurant doesn't open until lunch. The only other option is Starbucks if that is what you consider breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.
