We were here for two nights/3 days for a college visit to Pitt. The hotel is VERY college-visit friendly and we were treated so hospitably. Although I wasn't thrilled with the mandatory daily parking/valet fee it was countered with the VERY convenient free shuttle within a 3 mile radius. That meant we were able to be dropped right in front of Pitt's Alumni Hall by the complimentary shuttle with no concern for finding parking and no worries about feeding a meter b/c our car was back at the hotel. Then when we were ready to be picked up after a day at Pitt, the driver was there in minutes to get us! FABULOUS. We also used the complimentary shuttle to be dropped at the restaurant of our choice that evening for dinner--and picked up again, within minutes of our call for a return trip back to the hotel.
Also, we arrived late on Friday and were tired and so hungry. We were thrilled that there was a restaurant on-site and that it was open until 10pm. Since it was 9:30pm I was thinking our meal might reflect that it was the "end of the day" back in the kitchen but I was wrong. It was freshly prepared and not one speck tired. Excellent.
What else did I dig?
Our room was clean--and FIVE pillows PER BED!
Paul Mitchel shampoo and conditioner. Nice job Marriott!
Coffee pot NOT in the bathroom! YEA!
Nice thick towels, not the skinny scratchy kind
Ginger at the front desk was so nice along with every other person we connected with! Valets were sooooo attentive!
If my daughter does chose Pitt for college, this will be my go-to hotel when visiting her in lovely PA!
