We stayed here to visit a granddaughter who is a student at Pitt. It is very close to campus. It is friendly, clean and we enjoyed our stay. We travel with a dog and it is pet friendly....however, the areas for dogs to relieve themselves are very limited. That didn't disturb our stay and the dog survived. I love staying there and this was a repeat visit.

comfortable business trip

I had to leave early, but I do like the fact that transportation is available without calling a cab. Breakfast was sufficient

Great for overnight Steelers game trip

Everything was great. If you are going out to a Steelers or Pirates game this is the place to stay. They offer a free shuttle almost anywhere you need to go and will also pick you up. The free morning breakfast is unreal. Rooms were nice and clean. The staff is the best around. Book with confidence.
