We go to Pittsburgh often and this is always our go-to hotel. First, what we love about it. The location can't be beat. Walking distance to PNC Park and Heniz Field, perfect if you're going to a game. In fact, depending on where your room is located, you can actually see the Pirates game from your window. Close to Market Square, Cultural District and tons of restaurants. Strip District is about a 15-minute walk. The building is steeped in Pittsburgh history and elegance, something you simply can't get in a modern hotel (no matter how nice it is). Overall, the staff is friendly and helpful. If you don't want to pay $30/night to valet, there is a public parking garage across the street that is easy to access and costs approx. $10/night. Now, a few things that were disappointing this visit. The hotel is starting to show its age. In our room, there were areas that needed to be painted and the wood was damaged on a couple of the doors. Our air conditioning was not working, but to their credit they fixed it the next day. However, we did have to call the front desk multiple times as they did not pick up the first few times we tried. There were only two elevators working, and at high-traffic times we had to wait up to 10 minutes to get to our room.
The Renaissance is still our hotel of choice when visiting Pittsburgh, it just needs a bit of refreshing to keep it the grand hotel that we've grown to love.
