My overall experience at this hotel was disappointing. The air-conditioning in our room was broken and it was so hot. We asked twice to have someone come fix it, and then were told that it was because we were on the 7th floor and facing west, so the room heats up. I have no idea what that has to do with anything, only that we were sweating all night when the sun is not even out! The staff was friendly but could not seem to get it together-- they said they would call a cab for us, but then we waited 25 minutes for it because I don't think they ever did. Later on we called one and it came in 5 minutes, so not sure what was going on with them.
The hotel was clean though, and the lowest price we saw for anything near Pittsburgh. It is definitely not close to downtown though--count on driving your car in, or taking cabs. If you plan on doing that several times, it might make more sense to pay more to stay closer.
