The people who work here have been nothing but warm and helpful. I have been staying in this hotel for a long period of time and they always made me feel welcome and at home. The breakfast staff was a particular favorite, especially Diane, who took the role as "mom" while a lot of students are staying here waiting for...

This is perfect for the price. Located right next to the University of Pittsburgh, this is the perfect place to stay if you are visiting the University or the nearby Medical Center. Friendly staff, clean rooms and nice amenities. There are also several good restaurants nearby.

Rooms were very clean, cleaning staff, who were super nice, came every day (I was here for about 3 weeks). The front desk staff was always welcoming! The breakfast staff was also amazing, especially Diane; she always welcomed us with a big smile and a "good morning" and would let us know where to sit. She would always stop by,...

Very friendly staff, clean and updated rooms, and prime location make this the best choice for a University of PITT visit. Love that they have coffee, tea, water with fresh fruit and cookies in the lobby. Friday happy hour is very good as well.

Great stay. Room was very clean and quiet. Only stayed one night, but slept like a log. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The one thing I don't understand is why I need six pillows on my bed. I only use one. I can see two, but six? Housekeeping has to change these pillow cases every day for overnight stays....

This was our third stay at this hotel this year, filled with University of Pittsburgh activities and events. Each time, we have been treated courteously and professionally by all staff members. From the front desk to housekeeping to valet service, everyone is more than accommodating, always ready with a smile, and willing to help out. We requested extra towels and...

As always with Garden Inns the hotels follow a nice pattern which is a clean comfortable room and, for us, across from Forbes Hall our sons freshman dorm. Parking is all valet as I guess from the entrance it's a pretty crazy lot. Staff was welcoming and for the day wore we love Pitt or we love Carnegie shirts since...

The location is good if you are moving a student into Pitt. It's a very nice hotel with complimentary coffee and pop corn. Parking is valet only. Recommend you stay in a room on a high floor because of the street noise.

Great location for colleges! Staff was accommodating beyond normal. I think these employees has previous Disney training. Rooms were standard not exceptionally large but comfortable. Typical Hilton comfort in beds which is why I only stay at Hilton properties.
