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.

Entertainment tip: Long walk from hotel

Check out the Carnegie Science Center across from Heinz Field. Definitely a must see!

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.

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.

Good stay, great location

Was there for high school fundraiser. Just stayed one night. Very convenient as fundraiser was at hotel. Did find mildew smell in bathroom, think it was shower curtain. There was empty champagne bottle in mini fridge. Room was very comfortable and accommodating.

For a Westin propoerty ...

For a Westin propoerty this did not feel any better than a lower-star option. Rooms were very basic and felt tired. The staff appeared to be doing the least to keep their commitments to their customers; not particularly welcoming although it would be hard to characterize them as unfriendly. More expected from Westin.

My review of The Westin Convention Center Pittsburgh

I was somewhat dissatisfied with my room in this hotel. One thing I think I can say is that there was blood on the wall outside of the bathroom which I found to be very offending. The room also smelled of smoke when it was to be a smoke free room. For the price I had to pay because all other area hotels were booked, I was very unhappy with the value.
