I really enjoyed my stay at the Wyndham PIttsburgh University Center. The staff was very friendly and the room very comfortable. Great location too - a 10 minute walk from the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History, and a couple blocks from Forbes Ave., which has lots of eating options and convenience stores. My bed was great, and my room was very spacious. The only downside to my room was that is was near an elevator, and I could hear a low rumbling occasionally at night. So if you're a light sleeper, be sure to request a room that is not near the elevator. The heater/AC was also pretty loud, but I just turned it off at night and my room stayed pretty warm without it, even though it was -10 degrees F outside. The fitness room was also nice. The restaurant was pretty good, but a bit overpriced. Overall, great experience, and for the room rate I got ($111/night through a "stay 3 nights, get 30% off" promotion), I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay here again.

Thank you for taking time to articulate your guest experience at the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center. I am pleased that you felt that you received "Excellent value for service, comfort, and convenience" as the price / value relationship is key in retaining valued customers such as yourself. With respect to your comment about the "low rumbling" elevator noise I have addressed that with our elevator maintenance partner as it is our goal to always provide peaceful surroundings for a good nights sleep.
Thank you again for sharing your comments regarding your excellent experience, and I look forward to welcoming you back to the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center again in the future!

Best regards, Coleman
