“Great Hampton”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

I have stayed at this hotel several times and like its city location. Short walk to the Consul center and driving out bound in the morning is easy. The rooms have been great and breakfast is typical of a Hampton. TV in the exercise room was flaky last time I was there. Parking in the lot behind the hotel is free.

The hotel was very nice, centrally located & the staff was very friendly & helpful.We would definetly stay there again. The free breakfast could be better, but it was sufficient to get you started in the morning.The hotel is directly across from the history,sports museum & convention center. A lot of things were in walking distance.

I have stayed in this hotel about 3 times now. It is immediately adjacent to the Pittsburgh version of the Smithsonian in Washington. There, you can see Pennsylvania/US History presentations, as well as Steeler mania. Their primary parking lot often fills up, but they have a very convenient overflow parking next door for no additional charge. It looks like a safe place to leave your car. On foot, you can explore the Strip District area very easily, even for a middle age guy it is not a bad walk from one end of it to the other. There are many, many nice clubs there at night ... not to mention restaurants featuring great Italian food during the day. If you are going to Pittsburgh for sightseeing, I can see no reason to go anywhere but the Strip District. And if you are going to the Strip District, I can see no earthly reason to stay anywhere else but this hotel. The folks there are exceedingly nice about helping you, and it is a terrific value for the price!

This hotel was a good pick! We stayed for a weekend in February and had a very nice experience and a good time in the city. There is a little "dive" bar called Crystals a block up from the hotel and I recommend the Pineapple upside down cake drink. It is delicious. The staff was very professional and accommodating. We will definitely return to this property. Hilton properties are most definitely the best in Hospitality!!

Stayed in 2 queen rm and was surprised by how much room we had. We were able to walk everywhere that we wanted to go. Consol center was about 3/4 mile easy walk. The strip district is a couple blocks away. Staff was very helpful. Free parking was great. Free breakfast was pretty good, although I do like to have either sausage or bacon and neither were available. Not a big deal.
We plan on staying here next summer to see a Pirates game.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 314 which was quiet and roomy for 4 people

This Hampton Inn is about what you would expect. I did have one of the larger suite rooms. As always when this happens, the A/C - heating unit is the same size as for the smaller rooms. Thus it runs almost continuosly and the TV has to be turned up quite loud to be heard over the noise. In addiiton, the TV was also the same size as the smaller rooms. I was not happy with the self-park area as it is very dark and I did not like having to often park in the overflow lot and walk alone at night.
My bathroom, while it had a jetted tub, had no way to turn on the jets. It also was somewhat moldy smelling. the closet was a good size and the sink area has shelving so you can store your items under it. However, it did have an awful light above the mirror that just cast shadows on your face. I sure wish all of the hotels would put in a lighted make-up mirror. It is such a nice touch.
The breakfast was robust, with scrambled eggs, waffles, and the usual cereals, etc. However, the dining area is not very large and we had to wait one morning to get a table. They also had the breakfast to go bags and baked cookies in the evening. While you can walk to several restaurants, there are NO durg or grocery stores nearby and the hotel does not have a shuttle. You can walk to downtown, but it is a bit of a hike in the winter. I had a room in the back which faced part of the river but mostly looked into a big office building.
I doubt I would stay there again.

Room Tip: The hotel sits just a bit back from the road, request a room facing the river.
