Rooms with a Pittsburgh view and private balconies, too

The Quality Inn University Center is in an ideal location for visitors looking to stay near Pittsburgh's major medical centers and universities. Many are walkable from the hotel's front door, if not in plain sight from one of the hotel's private balconies. Guests not interested in walking can catch a ride on the hotel's complimentary shuttle. Fans of Panera Bread restaurants will be thrilled to discover a location in the hotel lobby.

Features

It is not everyday that a hotel in the city offers its guests a private balcony with every room. But that is exactly what visitors to the Quality Inn University Center can expect. Other room benefits include free Wi-Fi, free weekday paper delivery, and free local calls. While each room has a coffee maker, the hotel offers a 24-hour coffee service for guests who would prefer not to brew their own coffee.

Many of those universities, including the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, are a short walk from the hotel.

Really Good Hotel.

My trip was for the audition of Carnegie Mellon University. Considering about this, the location is really good. And, I have a experience to stay in the past here. They did change interior so that is clean and looks good. But, the weather was pretty cold and hitter didn't make the room warm well. Shuttle service was also good. I like this hotel.

Not the best

The hotel just seemed dirty. Everything appeared clean on the surface but felt unsanitary. Friendly efficient check-in. Great location!

location convenient to U Pitt and CMU

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The appearance of the room was average, but it did have a small refrigerator. Breakfast was theoretically available at Panera Bread, located off the lobby, but we were there over Thanksgiving and it was closed. Fri it was open and fine. The staff was friendly and helpful, printing out directions as we needed them.

Good location and excelent service but needs renovations

It's a good place to stay if you go for business, it's right off the highway, and you're downtown in under 10 minutes.There was always coffee and tea available, it would be nice if they include water in this service and in the rooms. The Panera was also convenient. The desk staff were nice. The hotel also provides free shuttle service, on the hour, to anywhere within a few mile radius, they took me to the carnegie museum of natural history and to the schenley plaza .There are also some interesting, but good restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is an old building that needs renovations.
