The Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center is the new name for the old Holiday Inn-Oakland and more than just the name has changed. I spent one night and did not eat in the restaurant but the property has been improved. It is cleaner and probably has fresh paint. This hotel is very convenient for my trips to Pittsburgh so I was pleased to see the improvements. They just need to keep going. As many other reviewers have noted the small pillows prevent a good restful sleep. The hotel van is also a worry since I need a lift on rainy days. The van has rust showing which is not an issue for me except it is indicative of underlying problems. The driver could not get his key to work in one lock and had the unlock from the other side. Passengers have to lift their luggage into the passenger area instead of storing in the rear. So keep up the good work til it is truly a first class hotel.

Thank you for the very favorable review. As you can see from the previous review we are in the process of replacing the pillows. The new pillows are much larger. The van has been replaced as well. We now have a great ride to accommodate a great service. We hope to see you again soon at the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center and we are glad that you appreciate the name and product change.

Hotel lobby was nice, but the room was not finished cleaning. we had to request a different room. Also room was noisy from ballroom until about 2 am. a great location, but not for the money!

Thank you for your comments and I am sorry that the room we had reserved for you was not complete upon your arrival. I am glad that we were able to get you into another room. I am sorry about the noise from some of our other guests. We hope to see you again if you return to the area.
