I stayed at the Westin for a single night during a business trip in which I was speaking at a conference across the street at the Convention Center. The hotel functions well for business travel. Registration and check-in were handled quickly and professionally. The room was spacious, well-appointed, clean and quiet. Check out was also handled efficiently.
I had a group dinner in the hotel restaurant. The food was high quality and well prepared. I also had breakfast by myself the next morning. The food was tasty but, as is typical in large chain hotels, overpriced (costing about twice what the same meal would have cost in a nearby restaurant).
The Westin had an interesting "green" feature in the room. You place your key card in a slot near the door to activate lights and other devices. When you remove the card upon leaving the room, the lights all go out. There was also a visible recycling bin in the room. These are nice touches.
Unfortunately my stay was short and I did not get to try out other amenities such as the fitness center. I didn't even get to explore the surrounding neighborhood. There is a nice walkway to the Convention Center that was appreciated due to the inclement weather during my visit. Streets in downtown Pittsburgh are confusing and difficult to navigate; similarly the hotel garage is a bit cramped and confusing. It appears that there is no light rail connection to the Pittsburgh airport.
If you are looking for a four-star chain hotel with reliable quality the Westin will work well for you.
