“Weekend stay in Pittsburgh - October 10th - 13th”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We stayed three nights at Friendship Suites and would stay again on a future trip to Pittsburgh.There are a number of units in the three individual homes that comprise "Friendship Suites". We stayed in the middle home on the ground floor unit that had 2 bedrooms and one bath. It is a great location with easy access to various points of interests and the Carnegie Museum of Art and Heinz Hall. Should you want to cook nearby is an upscale Giant Eagle supermarket, Whole Foods and Trader Joes.

Those wanting to view TV, movies etc, there is a large flat scree TV in the living room and smaller size flat screen in the larger of the two bedrooms. Located in what was in years past an upscale neighborhood of the city - a real treat to see these great old homes and the significant and positive changes to the city where I was born and spent my childhood.

The owner, Mr. Cox, is a wonderful host and was responsive to our every request.

Room Tip: Given the number and variety of units, would recommend speaking to Mr. Cox to have him assist you in...

Nice neighborhood, walking distance to Rite-Aid, Great Eagle and best of all, Whole Foods. Corner unit very bright and sunny. Could have used a slightly firmer mattress and a couple of extra pillows, but admittedly didn't request them as we were in town for a funeral. Very grateful to be accommodated at last minute notice. We had stayed here a few years ago (pleasure trip) and happy not to have to stay in a hotel.

We stayed at the Friendship Suites, Oct 11 &12. It's in a nice older neighborhood, in a good location for getting around Pittsburgh. The building was well maintained with pretty landscaping and we didn't have any trouble parking. When we first walked in I thought " Oh No", it looks really dated with the old floral wallpaper, and patterned carpet. Kinda like your Grandma's house, but then we went upstairs to our Suite and found it very clean and really cute with a nice little kitchenette and dining area . You have to remember this is a very old house with old house charms. We felt really comfortable here, and walked to the grocery store a block or so away for coffee and such. That evening we walked about 6 minutes over to BRGR, a great restaurant with really cool atmosphere and great food. The bed was comfortable and we both slept well.
We ran into Mr. Cox the first evening, he seemed nice, other than that we didn't see him again. I do know he was very quick to return any email I sent him and seemed very professional.
I would recommend this property to anyone who wants something a little different than your usual hotel. Great location and Very Clean.

Room Tip: Two great restaurants within walking distance Spoon and BRGR.

We stayed in an efficiency for a weekend and loved the convenience of a kitchen and the short drive to both Carnegie museums and the zoo, as well as a variety of restaurants and parks. The proprietor was easy to contact and helpful in answering all questions.

Very quiet, very comfortable, very clean. Convenient location for Carnegie Mellon university and major Pittsburgh medical facilities. Easy walking access to the Shadyside district and a wide range of eating and entertainment options. A walk to Carnegie Art Museum is a great way to spend an afternoon. Very highly recommended.

In spite of all the rave reviews here on TA, it was hard to imagine that Friendship Suites could be that wonderful, especially given the very reasonable price. But it was darn near perfect. We (3 adults and one child) shared a two-bedroom apartment for a weekend. It was absolutely spotless and incredibly comfortable. Now it is hard to imagine staying anywhere else in Pittsburgh!

Friendship Suites is a very nice alternative to a standard hotel room, offering both character and convenience. It has very attentive and helpful service as well, and is a short drive to downtown and other parts of Pittsburgh. I would definitely stay there again.
