I'm here now and as a platinum elite with marriott... they gave us a shabby room, even though I asked for an upgrade I understand it's a very busy weekend but this is beyond dirty. For $418 per night? Not talking my shoes off. Look elsewhere... don't usually give a bad review but I would check someplace else. Maybe they're...

I agree with most of the reviews. The hotel is clean, updated with nice-sized rooms. It's located within walking distance of many restaurants, shops, etc. You need to either valet your car or park in the public garage down the street. Even though it's a bit expensive for a Courtyard, I would recommend staying here. My only complaints are that...

The hotel was nice enough inside, room was large, friendly staff. The hot water took some time to adjust and parking was limited in the area. I had no choice but use the valet. $25 in addition to the nightly room rate.

We were just in town for one night for a Steelers game but we enjoyed our stay at this Courtyard. Rooms were clean, spacious and up to date decor and the location was convenient for walkiing to Heinz Field!

The jewel in the crown of this hotel is its staff. They are fantastic! Even before I got here, the staff were super helpful in making changes to my reservation. When I arrived, I was warmly greeted. I used the Marriott app to check in, and my room was ready when I got to the hotel. The folks at the...

Most reviews are correct. This is is a nice hotel. I travel to Pittsburgh often so I have been to many downtown and north shore hotels. I think you can get more at others for the price of this one. Staff are very pleasant. I did come during a Steelers game so the price may have been escalated.

Our last stay was not so good, so we have not been back in a number of years. However, this stay was much better, more of what we expect from Courtyard. Got an upgrade to a very nice suite and the new breakfast area is a nice way to start the day. Key is the front desk and valet personnel...

All the reviews about the Courtyard Pittsburgh Downtown are correct, the hotel is very nice, rooms are clean, bed comfortable, in walking distance to almost everything. The only complaint we had was the overwhelming smell of cigarette smoke in our room and after mentioning it to the front desk, we were told the hotel is non-smoking but they would look...

If you want to be in the centre of everything, this is a good choice. You can walk and visit museums, shops and theatres. You have a lot of restaurants in this area too. Rooms are good, clean and I enjoyed during my visit.
