Hampton Inn & Suites Pittsburgh - Downtown
Ranked #4 of 71 Hotels in Pittsburgh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 14, 2013

My spouse and I spent one night at the Hampton Inn Downtown Pittsburgh in late October 2012 (and another 1-night stay at the same hotel in late November 2012). This was our first time staying at this downtown Pittsburgh (Strip District) property, although we have visited the city for many years and have stayed at various chain hotels. We liked this hotel for several reasons, and we will definitely stay here again.

Parking is included in the nightly rate (the rate is a little higher than the nearby Doubletree, another Hilton property, because of the free parking). The uncovered but fenced parking lot is on street level, making it very easy to retrieve items from your car. (Some guests may view this open lot as a negative, perhaps thinking uncovered parking is less secure, but we see it as a positive. The lot is mostly enclosed, and requires keycard access to enter and exit.)

This hotel has a small indoor pool and spa/hot tub that has lifts to assist the handicapped in using the pool and the spa. Breakfast is included in the room rate, with both hot and cold items (it is a standard Hampton Inn breakfast offering, including their make-your-own waffles). The breakfast room can get very crowded at times; the overflow guests are directed to sit across the hall in a conference room. On weekdays, a breakfast bag is available if you are running short on time. Free coffee and tea are available throughout the day. Off the lobby is a small business center (with computers and printer), and there is a small pantry/store behind the front desk.

Rooms ending in 01 (201, 301, 401, 501, 601, 701, 801) are the most preferable studio suite rooms, with corner locations and an entrance foyer. We stayed in room 401, which was a studio suite/corner room with an entrance foyer, small hallway kitchenette (refrigerator, microwave, sink), sofa bed (with a coffee table in front and a cocktail table aside), desk and chair, easy chair, king-size bed, large vanity area and closet, and smallish bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. According to the hotel directory, rooms ending in 00, 19, and 20 are also corner rooms, but we think they lack the entrance foyer. Rooms on the eighth/top floor are larger than on other floors but still vary in size, so choose 802, 803, 806, 807, 809, 810, 813, 814, 815, and 816 over room 805, 811, and 812. On lower floors, rooms ending in 10 (210, 310, 410, 510, 610, 710) are located at the center of each floor and seem a bit larger, although the bed configuration may be two doubles only. On our second stay, we had a standard room with a king bed, and it was a great size, with very high ceilings, which made it seem more spacious (it may feel more crowded if the room has two double beds). Wi-Fi is free for all guests (you do not need to be a certain level of Hilton Hhonors.)

The hotel is located directly across the street from the John Heinz History Museum, which is run by the Smithsonian Institute and contains many examples of Americana and sports memorabilia. We visited the museum one afternoon for about 2 hours (although you could easily spend a day there) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Nearby quality restaurants include Eleven (one of our Pittsburgh favorites) and Lidia's Italian Kitchen. The heart of the Strip District is a short walk from the hotel, with additional restaurants (such as Kaya) and many bars. The hotel is an easy walk along the river (and across one of the bridges) to the North Shore (for access to the baseball and football stadiums, Carnegie Science Center, and Rivers Casino).

We will stay here again - great location and affordable rates!

The Hampton Inn & Suites in downtown Pittsburgh is on the city's fringe near the Strip District. It's a quiet location across from a sports museum, within a moderate walk of the major office buildings and the Consol Energy Center. The room was spacious, decorated in business-contemporary, clean and appointed with really comfortable beds. Wi-fi was free. Parking was free. Our room came with a free breakfast buffet that included a good variety of hot foods, cereals, fruits, pastries and drinks. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The woman who checked us in -- in record short time! -- remembered that we were in town for the Pittsburgh Penguins-Tampa Bay Lightning hockey game and asked us who won when she saw us walk into the lobby the next morning. I love that they launder/change their duvet covers daily.

This is an Amazing hotel!! From the location, to the free parking,to the hotel staff!! I only travel Hilton properties, this is the BEST Hampton that I have ever visited. I have already stayed there 4 times! The staff go above and beyond to please! VERY friendly. We like to party, and at this Hotel you can simply call front desk, and request a taxi, they take care of everything for you! We are walkers, and this location is close to MANY great restaurants, public transit,and many sights.! Rooms are always clean, and of course they have all the amenities that Hamptons provide.

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!
