Very Nice

This is a very nice hotel. The food is excellent and so is room service. They even give you a free bottle of water in your room. I would recommend. The rooms are clean and modern.

Ok, not what I expected

For the price, I was expecting a lot more. The location is great if you are on business or in town to see a ball game. It is a short walk to PNC park and Heinz Field. One slightly annoying feature is that you must use your room key to turn on the lights...which is fine until your husband leaves the room with the key while you are in the bathroom. Rooms are clean and relatively comfortable but I wouldn't call this a "good value." Parking is not included but there is a self park lot under the hotel.

Weekend Getway

Stayed for a weekend getway. Parking under the hotel is not included in on the price of the hotel. For the price, not that great. Stay at any other chain hotels (Comfort Inn, Holiday Inn) with the same ammenities for a much better value. Nothing special here.

Excellent escape

Check-in was flawless with a very professional clerk who took time to ask where we were from and what plans we had for the evening. No information was given about morning coffee being served or where to find more information.

Unbeatable location for the price

We were in Pittsburgh to attend a show at the Console Center. The hotel was within walking distance which was very convenient. No complaints about the hotel. Staff was attentive and very friendly. Would stay there again.
