My wife and I were in town for a wedding but it was also a Steelers home game weekend so it was clear the hotel was at or near capacity. Our room was a regular king room which was easy to get around, had a fairly large bathroom, and had a desk, chair with ottoman, room safe, and typical amenities. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The hotel bar on the first floor, which is not large, was consistenty packed, however, there is a neighborhood bar two doors down, Doubledays, which was friendly, had a great beer selection and had good food (and excellent wings with some nice sauces-garlic and parmesan were very tasty). The Renaissance has a nice restaurant for Sunday brunch/breakfast buffet/omelet station (note: Pittsburgh blue laws prohibit mimosas/alcohol sales before 11 AM). Although the lobby, bar, restaurant, and hotel were packed, the hotel staff remained friendly, responsive, and good-natured throughout the weekend even though things got hectic and crowded. Really a nice experience at a well-run hotel. As far as getting a feel for Pittsburgh turn of the 19th century opulence/architecture, the lobby cannot be beat.
