My husband is from Pittsburgh, and has not been back in a very long time. I wanted this time to be nice for him as he has been ill, and is disabled. His sister thought this would be a "good" place so he insisted on this hotel.
I asked for a nice view of the city across the river, and was told I had one. I have a great view ...of the parking lot and some empty buildings next door.
Asked for a higher floor ...am on three. Obviously was not heard.
There seems to be a lot of young party people and was kept up with noises in hall.
Tub leaves much to be desired, as does room in general. Very dated, dark, and as mentioned view is terrible.
You pay $14.00 for parking, there is constant traffic out side, and you take your life in your hands trying to cross the street.
Pool is very small, although the fitness room seemed nice.
There is a Shuttle which will take you anywhere within 3 miles...have not used as yet, so do not know how it will go . I did however hear people complaining about the "slowness" of service.
Would I recommend? Not really.... There are better located and equipped hotels. This hotel advertises a restaurant on-site and a lounge .... it has neither. There is a French restaurant next
