I just stayed only one night at Shadyside Suites and would return “in a heartbeat.” The suite is actually an apartment. In fact, I think Shadyside Suites was once an apartment building that’s been converted into hotel suites. The decor had an urban, trendy -- yet comfortable -- feel to it because it resembles a home, not the usual sterile, cookie-cut, predicable layout of an ordinary hotel. The staff directed us to “just the right” restaurant within a block from the hotel where there’s a really interesting area with lots of shops.
The accommodating, friendly staff; the size of the room and its homey ambience won me over! On the other hand, the bathroom was small and the fan noisy. Overall, I strongly recommend Shadyside Suites and would return without hesitation on my next visit to Pittsburgh.More
