Perfect Spot for Football/Baseball Visitors

The Westin in downtown Pittsburgh worked very well for us as visiting football fans for a weekend. The lobby is nice, and the staff were very patient, informative, and helpful. My room was clean and was kept very clean. The location is perfect in regards to the sports venues. It is in a nice spot of town and only about a 15 minute walk to the stadium across the bridge. Enjoyed our stay, as well as the Original Fish Market Restaurant located inside. Would recommend.

Look for other parking if you have the time/energy. Otherwise it is $20 a day under the hotel.

solid choice in Pittsburgh

Perfectly fine, clean room, good location in downtown Pittsburgh, friendly staff. Certainly the cost is a price-gauge on a big sports weekend but that's supply and demand. One complaint is not enough elevators - very hard to get downstairs at busy times and had to walk.

Baseball week-end

The Westin proved exceptionally clean and convenient for our week-end to catch the Pirates play at PNC Park. Much cheaper week-end parking exists in nearby lots however.

Great location!

My husband and I stayed here for New Year's Eve 2012, and we attended the First Night festivities in the city. The Westin was a great choice since we were only a few blocks from the cultural district. The room was very nice and I thought the bed was very comfortable(my husband thought it was too soft). I know it's the city, but I wish you didn't have to pay extra to park. I highly recommend the hotel and would stay there again.

Nice but not spectacular

The Westin is in a great location and looks really nice. But overall it was a little blah. The other thing that was annoying was that the room was about 86 degrees when I walked into it. That's right 86! It was like a sauna! Other than that, it was okay. It would have been nice to have free wi-fi, but for one night it was good enough.

awesome getaway

I enjoyed the whole hotel experience. Paying for parking should be included the price of the room. $20 for 24 hours. Come On!!! The room was comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful. And we walked to our concert. Got to love it!!!!
