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.

good value with a great location

I found the staff to be very friendly and accommodative. The room was clean, comfortable, and even had a balcony. It was just minutes from downtown Pittsburgh, with east access to the main highway. Overall I my experience was a pleasant one and will definitely stay here again.

If I had it to do over...

I would have paid the extra money and stayed somewhere else. Our stay was wretched. Our room had a paper-thin door to an adjoining room. The people in that room might as well have been in bed with me. They were trying, quietly, to talk over old times. I know their high school science teacher's name, for cryin' in the night! I finally had to rap on the door at 12:30, and I felt guilty doing it because they seemed like such nice people, with the three little kids and two dogs, you know. We were right over the main entrance so were awakened very early in the morning by people in loud conversation with taxi and shuttle drivers, etc. We tried to get a different room, but no. The whole place felt scruffy. Good things? There was a wonderful woman on staff the night we checked in, running all over trying to help us get settled--our key didn't work, the rollaway bed hadn't been delivered, there was no place to get something to eat after 9, etc. She was a 10. The hotel wasn't.
