The entrance looks nice and inviting however the room i got smelled damp. Like feet.
Its free internet but its not wireless and the cord is so short that you have to sit by the desk to work. The sink is outside the bathroom which i don't like. Otherwise the rooms were ok. The A/C sounded a lot so i had to turn it off to be able too sleep.
To be fair they might have changed the room if i had asked. Nice staff

I stayed at the Shadyside Courtyard for two nights while on business with some colleagues. Overall it was a decent hotel. Check in was smooth - the lobby is pretty big with a small bar and restaraunt. They only have valet parking at a cost of $17 per day. The king room was good sized with nice furniture and a flat screen TV. The bed was moderately comfortable, but the heating/AC system was somewhat noisy. Free internet, but it isn't wireless. They have an indoor pool and a pretty nice fitness center. Breakfast was good at a cost of $11. There are some decent restaraunts in the local area. The hotel has a shuttle van and they will take you to and from any of the local establishments. Overall it was a good stay.

Check in was smooth and fast, we proceeded to our room and was greeted by the previous guest’s urine on the toilet and floor, although the staff quickly attended to the situation, we questioned the cleanliness of the rest of the facility for the remainder of the stay. The mandatory valet service is not uncommon with a city hotel, it would be nice if one of them could drive a manual transmision, I watched my car stall six times as they were driving it down the block when we were checking out. Thanks for the clutch work Marriott!

Checked in after 2:00 a.m., they were ready for us! Room nice and neat. On check in they offered us some complimentary water after our long drive. Breakfast was perfect pick me up.

The only bad thing that I have to say is that I am sorry we only stayed one night.

If you've been to a Courtyard before, you know what to expect. Location is great for the hospitals, less so for CMU or Pitt, but they have a free shuttle service. A few places nearby (Starbucks on site, Panera bread and Sam's club around the corner), more options on Walnut about a ten-minute walk. The lobby is warm and welcoming, but my room was cold and simple. I had one of those air-conditioners that are mentioned in other reviews: very noisy and not exceptionally efficient. Other than that, no complaints. Housekeeping is reasonable and the staff were friendly enough. There's wired internet in the rooms but no wifi; wireless is only available in the lobby.

Booked through Priceline for less than $50 a night. I don't think I'd pay the hotel's regular rate.

I travel a fair amount for business and stay at the Marriott chain exclusively. This was one of my least favorite business stays. The room was not as clean as other Courtyards. The air conditioner makes loud noises constantly whether on or off, as if it is forever assesing the room temperature to see if it needs to turn back on. I could only sleep by putting a pillow over my head to block the noise. You have to valet your car for $18/day eventhough they have plenty of parking. Valet parking when traveling for business is annoying for me because I need to get things from my car often and have to get my keys from the valet all the time. In the lobby they have one computer for the whole six floor hotel, so of course there is a wait. One elevator was down, as well. The fitness center only has cardio. I tried to check in around 2:30 PM and this was the first time I ever had to wait for a room to be cleaned....and I often check in in the morning. All in all I really did not like this hotel.
