“A sweet stay in Shadyside”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Shadyside Inn is terrific. I wish I could stay longer. The location is perfect for walking to Walnut Street and CMU campus, it's right next to a convenient bus stop and the suites are awesome. I felt at home in my one bedroom and wish I had more time to enjoy it. The place is cozy, cute, clean, and comfortable. I love the breakfast baggie they give you. The muffins were yummy and snacks a welcome treat after a long day of traveling. Can't wait to stay again! The only downfall was the hardwood floors--which I love--but when my upstairs neighbor came home at 1am and was walking around in heels, I heard every move.

Hi Brendalee1981, we wish you could stay longer too! Your enthusiasm for our spacious, comfy suites and happy, helpful staff is wonderfully contagious! Our treat-filled goodie bag changes seasonally, so look forward to a new mix of items when you visit again. (Don't worry-- we always have the fresh-baked muffins!) Our hardwood style flooring is handsome indeed, so if you're interested in insurance from high-heeled neighbors, let us know that you'd like to be on a top floor suite and we'll do our best to take care of you. Thanks again for your terrific review, and we'll look forward to your next visit!

When planning a visit to Carnegie Mellon University, this is a great choice. It is a full-sized furnished apartment with a patio, full kitchen, living and dining room, and two bedrooms--and, very important in this area, parking. It is close to the shopping district so there is easy access to restaurants, a market, drug store, and chain clothing stores. The kitchen is fully equipped, so we were able to cook dinner one night when it was too stormy to venture out. Carnegie Mellon is an easy walk on a nice day, and University of Pittsburgh is also close. The hotel has a shuttle for days when weather is bad. The staff was friendly and helpful, and offered us bottled water and a snack bag when we checked in. There are several buildings...converted apartment buildings, it seems. We stayed in the main one, which was convenient for catching the shuttle and walking to the shopping area. It is a city, so there is traffic. The parking spaces were a tight fit for a van. All in all, a very good choice.

Hello Toshie A, thank you for such a full and thorough endorsement! You're absolutely correct that our suites had a prior life as full residential apartments, and we've poured tons of love, sweat, and treasure into making them the most spacious and comfortable hotel accommodations possible! It seems like your family made the most of your time here, from the shopping and dining nearby to the tree-shaded walk through Carnegie Mellon University. Our parking spaces certainly are tight; because parking in Shadyside is so dearly coveted, we've decided to offer a free narrow parking permit to all of our guests rather than parcel out wide spots to a select few. Of course, we also have complimentary local shuttle service for any guests who'd like to skip driving entirely. Thanks again for your kind words, and I hope you'll choose us again in the future!

Seems to be in a nice part of town and handy for the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center where I had meetings. The suites are quite spread out so you may need to drag your bags over the road to another building - assistance was offered to me so take it if you need it.

The suite was comfortable and had all the things you might - nice to have the space. The bed was a little uncomfortable at first as it had a sponge like comforter on top of the mattress which made it too soft for me - after a bit of wrestling I took it off and was much more comfortable. Main gripe was noise from adjacent suites - after a long transatlantic journey I was ready for bed early but kept awake by my neighbor's phone conversations through what seem to be paper thin walls.

Great choice of restaurants down Walnut street and a nice (if a little expensive) deli for a DIY breakfast.

Seemed a little pricey at around $170 for the night but on balance I would come back.

Hi JMHGlobetrotter, thanks for staying with us! Many travelling professionals enjoy our proximity to the constellation of University of Pittsburgh Medical Centers, so I'm glad that you also got to explore a bit and visit the dozens of upscale restaurants nearby. You'll be happy to learn that our beds have changed dramatically since your departure: we've upgraded all of our suites from memory foam mattress pads to entirely new "Suite Sleep" pillow-top mattresses. Our staff is obsessed with helping guests, so if you ever need us to move items in your suite or politely encourage your neighbors to be more quiet, please do give us a call and we'll be there in a flash. We're delighted that a globetrotting guest would want to come back, and I hope we'll see you again soon!

This is our favorite place to stay in Pittsburgh. We recently had a two bedroom unit (my mother-in-law was with us). It's so comfortable and convenient to have the apartment setting, with a living room and kitchen and dining area. The Shadyside neighborhood is lovely for early morning or late evening walks, not to mention the great shops and restaurants nearby on Walnut St.

Hi MountainhomeJody, thank you for visiting! Spending time with family certainly feels a lot more natural when you have a living room and kitchen to spread out in, as opposed to the bedroom-only rooms that many chain hotels sell. Shadyside is a charming mix of upscale homes with picturesque gardens and boutique shops with appetizing restaurants. In the mornings or evenings, I'm sure you met a variety of friendly dog-walkers, sleek runners, and fashionable shoppers. Shadyside Inn Suites guests are visiting Pittsburgh for many different reasons, but I hope they all follow your example and take the time to enjoy what Shadyside has to offer!

We had a 2-br so we could bring grandma to our son's graduation. Lovely accommodations. Extremely friendly staff. Goodie bag and M&Ms with Pitt colors were special treats.
Hail to Pitt!

We'll be back next year for daughter's CMU graduation.

Room Tip: Glad we had first floor, since we had an elderly mom with us. Still had some steps.

Hi Ohio_MPM, thank you for staying with us for your son's big day! Pitt and CMU parents are great guests, because they're sure to make the most of the spacious suites and themed goodies we enjoy giving out. If grandma's coming along for your daughter's graduation, we'd love to hear about it when you reserve-- we do everything we can to accommodate step-sensitive guests, which includes recommending suites at one of our buildings with an elevator. We'll look forward to seeing you all next year!

My husband, my sister, and I visited Pittsburgh for a house-hunting trip. Here's why we were impressed.

Amenities: free wi-fi, free parking, clean rooms, well-equipped kitchen, tasteful decor, plenty of space. The "breakfast bag" with muffins, juice, and snacks was a pleasant bonus!

Service: while we'd originally booked a two-bedroom suite for the whole trip, my sister had to leave early. Not only did the staff figure out how we could switch to a smaller and cheaper room mid-trip, they also made sure it was zero hassle for us. For example, they had our bags moved for us while we were out for the day.

Location: an easy walk to Walnut Street, a charming shopping area with restaurants, stores, and a small market. The rest of the neighborhood is shady and beautiful. While 5th Ave (the street the hotel fronts on) is busy, there was no noise in either of the rooms we stayed in.

Value: we paid less for our suite than we would have for two hotel rooms at a much shoddier place. One caveat, though - the more reasonably priced rooms go quickly during graduations and other area events. Plan accordingly!

We attended our niece's graduation from Pitt this weekend and stayed in a lovely one bedroom suite. Other family members were across the street in a two bedroom suite. Our suite had everything that we needed and then some. We were provided with coffee, juice, muffins, granola bars and popcorn. The rooms were tastefully decorated and quiet. Parking was free. We loved walking in the neighborhood and the shops and restaurants on Walnut Street are great.

Room Tip: The one bedroom that we were in was more like a studio, but with a full kitchen and dining room. It...

Hi KathyAllentown_PA, we're pleased as punch that you had a lovely time with us! The suite you reserved actually was one of our Studio Suites at 5426 Fifth Ave, which are indeed different from our One Bedroom Suites. While they're all much more spacious than a normal hotel room, the One Bedroom Suites feature a separate living room with couches, coffee table, HDTV, and more. With the tremendous surge of proud relatives visiting the University of Pittsburgh for graduation, the upscale shops and picturesque homes in flowery Shadyside can be a refreshing change of scenery. Congratulations on your niece's graduation, and I hope you'll come stroll along Walnut Street again soon!
