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.

Rooms

All 119 rooms in this seven-story hotel have private balconies. Each room also has free Wi-Fi, local calls, and weekday paper delivery. Guests can request a room with a microwave and/or refrigerator as well.

Property 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.

 

Other conveniences here include a free shuttle in the Oakland area, the Pittsburgh neighborhood where the hotel is located, which is home to the city's major universities. Many of those universities, including the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, are a short walk from the hotel.

Road trip stop

This hotel was perfect for the short stop in Pittsburgh I made. It was easily accessible, close to other areas, and had plenty of parking.

Good location, average hotel

Good location, close to campus. Room was somewhat run-down. There's a Panera in the same building, which is convenient.

Acceptable Hotel - Good Rate

Older hotel but they have been doing updates to keep it current. I feel it is a good value considering its location to Pitt and CMU and it works for my needs. My wife might not think it is nice enough but she usually spends more on hotels than I like to.

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.
