PROS: *The room was clean. *The location is super convenient to Pitt, CMU, Carnegie Museum & Phipps. *There is a good restaurant within a short walk (The Porch). CONS: *The room was a bit dated. *Overall, the hotel is very *meh.* There is really nothing exciting about this hotel. Nevertheless, it will get the job done just fine. Don't overpay.

Bed was not comfortable. The stay was ok over all. I have stay here before and the beds on the 8th floor was a lot better.

I was very impressed with my stay. They were very nice and accommodating. Our stay was supposed to be overnight as my husband had an appointment at the UPMC--Presbyterian for testing. However, due to a medical emergency he was admitted to the hospital. We live over 5 hours away and I wasn't sure how long our stay was going to...

Well, . . . the location is fantastic if you want to be close to the University of Pittsburgh. The staff is very nice and friendly, and the food is OK (but not great). However, there were some drawbacks that are deserving mention. First, the internet server was down for the first 3 days of my visit, and when it...

First time staying here. Usually stay on the south side. Staff was great. Hotel conveniently located for Pitt visit. Nice clean rooms. Nice mattress on bed. Got a great last minute rate as well. Only thing missing was a fridge in the hotel. Will definitely stay there again next time.

On a college visit with my daughter, this was interesting. We went to eat at the restaurant and were told it would be a long wait or would be want to sit at a high top in the bar. So, of course, instead of waiting we said yes, as our drive was 12 hours that day. Within minutes of sitting...
