We enjoyed our overnight stay here to get our son settled at Carnegie Mellon, but I wish this hotel did not insist on valet parking. They have a nice, big above-ground parking lot surrounding the premises, and parking should come with the price of the hotel. If they want to keep out non-guests, they could always require guests to put tickets on their dashboards.
Another curious thing was that the front-desk staff greeted us like long-lost friends yet, a couple hours later, asked us for names and IDs when we needed to get back into our rooms and the extra keys given to us did not work. I certainly do not expect that they should remember every person, yet, in that case, a more conservative friendly greeting up front would be in order. This may sound like a strange complaint, but it is something the hotel should be aware of!
One more thing--I had asked for a room with a sofabed because our son would be with us, yet we pulled out the bed to find it unmade. We were not about to drag someone up at 10 p.m. to make it so did it ourselves, but my thought was that this type of service should be included if someone requests the sofabed. The hotel is not cheap, after all!
Otherwise, we like the hotel. When we were about to leave and looking at the lovely waterfall behind the hotel, it meant a lot to us that a staff member came up and asked us how our stay had been.
