Staff was very helpful. Weather was not great and they made sure we could check in early and that everything was ready upon arrival, much appreciated.

The hotel is fine. When we booked a room for three people online through a third party site, the site set us up with a room that had one king bed. The hotel was able to fix that for us and put us in a room with two queens (if there was no room available they were ready to send in a cot free of charge). That was very nice. The rooms was clean. There were a few problems though. 1. the pillows were cubes. It was actually very inconvenient to sleep on them. 2. the faucet in the bathroom was not in great condition. 3. the light in the bathroom was functional but broken. 4. there is no free parking (unless you stay on sunday when street parking is free). Otherwise they do have a garage but it is somewhat highly priced. 5. breakfast is not included. 6. Tv viewing options are limited (but the tv was hdmi adaptable so if we brought our cord we could hook up our laptop and stream from the free wifi). But these problems did not stop me from sleeping and that is what hotels are for. So the experience was fine.

Thank you for your overall good review of your stay at our hotel. I apologize that the pillows were too small. I completely agree. The great news is that all of our pillows are being replaced. We began switching them out last week. Please join us again if your travels bring you back to the Pittsburgh University area.

The Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center hotel is primarily a business hotel in my opinion. If you are going to be working or meeting at University of Pittsburgh or CMU, the location is very good. You can walk to PITT within 5-10 minutes and CMU within 10-15 minutes. The hotel itself is a bit dated on the outside, but the rooms seem to have recently gone under renovation. My room had new furnishings, carpeting, and light fixtures and were very much up to date. They even had an iPod comfortable alarm clock which I very much value. I felt the bedding was relatively high quality for this segment. I typically stay at Westin's and other higher end hotels and I thought the bedding and sleep quality were quite good.

I felt the room service was a bit pricey. For a basic 2 egg breakfast with sides + coffee, the bill approached $25. I typically pay that amount at higher end hotels, so I thought the price was on the high side.

I felt overall the hotel was of good quality, but not great or outstanding. I also have no major complaints.
