I researched numerous hotels in the Pittsburgh area as I was going to be in the area for a week for business and vacation, a combined trip! While the Springhill suites was a bit more pricey than some of the other options, but it was the closest to where I was needing to be so I ended up settling on it. Even before I set out on my trip I was impressed.
I booked several weeks in advance and had to call to change my room arrangements. I originally had a king size suite, but ended up having more guests going with me so I called to see if I could get a double room. Customer service was fast and friendly. They changed my room to a double queen size suite and updated my info from 1 guest to 3 adults and a baby. There was no extra cost, no fuss, no muss.
A few hours before arrival I called and asked to have a crib put in the room. A pack and play was waiting for us upon our arrival and the little blankets were folded in fancy hotel shapes!
The hotel was fairly easy to find, and parking was free. It can be a little annoying as you park on the 4th floor of the parking garage. There is a door with an elevator inside that will take you to the second floor where you enter the hotel lobby (where the hotel elevators are located). The problem is upon arrival someone has to go in, go down to the second floor, get a luggage cart, bring it back up, load it and then get back in the elevator, go down to the hotel, check in and get back into an elevator....this only happens upon arrival and check out, so it's not that big of a deal just be forewarned that there will be no luggage carts waiting for you until you go down the elevator to get it.
The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a small bar that has food and drinks...the food is good, a bit pricey but it is a hotel bar. The outdoor firepit on the balcony is beautiful but was not working when we were there.
The rooms were gorgeous. The toilet is located in one small room and the shower in the other with a sink in both-this was very helpful when getting ready!
The hotel provides daily passes for the gym attached which has a large lap pool. The hotel has a small pool of their own on the lowest level. It is a SALT WATER POOL. It is slightly odd, but it truly is a salt water pool so be careful when letting children swim because it will burn eyes and may irritate skin.
The hotel offers a shuttle service within 10 miles of the hotel. All you have to do is schedule your ride at the front desk 24 hours in advance. If you have children in a car seat or booster seat, they will not provide shuttle service though. The hotel is within easy driving distance from many attractions such as the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium, Walnut Street shopping district, the Monoroeville Mall and is easy walking distance to many shops.
The hotel is clean, modern and definitely a place I will be returning to-in December, in fact!
Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and will be returning myself!
