“Fantastic!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We had a great time!!! Loved the house, so warm and inviting!!! The decor was beautiful, and the ceilings were beautiful!! Are room was very nice and the tub was great! Ed was very nice and we loved playing fetch with the dogs!!! Nice outside area with a fountain, we are smokers so it was nice to have a place to sit with coffee and enjoy the back yard. The area around the house was nice and clean, didn't feel nervous about walking around. Breakfast was very good, really liked the orange french toast!! We also met Dee, the housekeeper, she even turned the clocks back an hour for us,(daylight savings) and left a nice little note!! Would stay again!!!

We stayed for the 3rd time in this JEM of an inn. Our first visit was to be close to Heinz field. Since then we have been returning every year, not only for the Steelers but also to say a big hello to Ed (the owner). It is everything you can want, homey, lovely, clean, cozy, and most of all a home away from home. You definately don't feel like you are invading someones home like other bed and breakfasts. Food is great, hopitality great, stay is great, what more to say...all around perfect!

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful, since the rooms are not copy paste like other hotels, you can choose on...

It was our first stay at this very special inn. It should receive a trophy for the professionalism given by Ed and RJ. The entire inn has little special touches that are greatly appreciated and the rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast isn't the plain jane that you get in big hotels, everything is homemade with love. This is the BEST! You even have free access to the YMCA for fitness and pool.

Room Tip: all the rooms are beautiful!

We chose the Parador for our recent trip to Puttsburgh, we used InnFan and Trip Advisor to research the property. Upon arriving we were immediately impressed with the historic mansion. With a ring of the doorbell we were greeted by Ed, the owner and innkeeper. He was very pleasant and proudly showed up around the 8000 sq feet. The home is still in wonderful condition with most original floors are architectural details. We chose the original master bedroom, and it was very nice, the only downside is the Victorian bed creaked a bit, but that is to be expected. Ed, who creatively managed to marry the Victorian and Carribbean flair is successful. I highly recommend the Parador Inn as the location, hospitality and wonderful breakfast will offer a great treat!

We spent one night at the Parador Inn for our anniversary and I wish we could have stayed longer! The Inn is so beautiful and well kept. Ed the owner stays on the premises and is very knowledgeable about the Inn's history and surrounding areas. The Inn is located close to the Rivers Casino, Science Center, and many other attractions on the North Shore. We really enjoyed our stay, Thanks Ed we will return!

We spent 4 nights at the Parador Inn. Ed, the host, owner, inkeeper was warm, friendly and very helpful. His directions were right on and the restaurant recomendations were superb. The breakfasts were bountiful and delicious. Our room was clean, spacious and well appointed. As a bonus, the Inn was 3 blocks from the "T station" which made it easy for travel.

Room Tip: All rooms are upstairs. If you have a problem climbing steps, this is not the place to stay.

Right from the word go I loved this experience - Ed, the owner, was quick to respond to my email query and answer all my questions. He described the location well, and I had no trouble finding my way around from here - great location, close to public transport, which is just what I needed. The Inn is gorgeous, full of character, and the room was large, light and beautifully decorated, and super clean too. I loved the breakfasts, and appreciated all the little extras that Ed has built into people's stays here. I look forward to returning, and would recommend this place to anyone. Thanks Ed!
