I stayed at the Fairmont in downtown Pittsburgh for four nights. I got a so-called "Fairmont City View Room King bed non-smoking" and it was nice. The view was excellent from 15. The wall with the window was basically just glass and you could watch down on the south side of downtown Pittsburgh. The staff was friendly. Except one of the "bell boys". He didn't open the door for me when I walked in and out of the hotel. The other staff would open the door for me though. Not that I really care about it, but I noticed this. That's why I am mentioning this in this review. And every staff that served me got a tip from me.
They have a nice restaurant that serves an excellent Caesar's Salad and the restaurant staff was very nice and friendly.
Close to the reception, there is a bar. I had a sandwich dish and it was nice. They get their food from the same kitchen that supplies their restaurant on the second floor.
So my family also had a party at the hotel at their big hall. I have no complaints about that. Everything was fine. This was my experience.
The points, that are not so good: That one bell-boy and the fact that wifi internet is not complimentary. This is a pretty up-class hotel, so I didn't quite understand why I had to pay for wifi. However, when I did purchase access to the wifi, the wifi worked flawlessly.
In conclusion; I would stay there again, despite some minor issues.
