Business Trip

Would recommend Mon, Sep 7, 2015
Very good service.,clean etc..........There is a nice young man named Marcus whom was in the lobby that greeted everyone, he was extremely professional and very helpful !!! Also, a restaurant employee I believe her name is Gloria was very friendly and professional. The Bar Employee whom served me a drink on Friday night I requested a lemon twist she placed two cherries in my beverage ,when I requested a lemon she sticks her hand in my glass takes the cherries out and lectures me about having a lemon in my drink.I didn't argue with her ,however will contact the hotel manager regarding what I consider someone whom is in need of more PROFESSIONALISM..... I truly didn't think she knew better,she was a bit rough around the edges . Notwithstanding ,I will visit there again,and I highly recommend staying at the establishment . One last comment, I rode past the place twice before I located the building ,others whom were on the elevator expressed the same problem..........corporate management needs to correct the matter.

Lost access to internet, poor housekeeping

Would recommend Thu, Jul 24, 2014
Stayed there for three nights. I lost internet access on the third night. It took several hours to fix the problems. Also, they seem to have poor housekeeping, such as not vacuuming the room and bathroom and not filling up complementary items (water, paper cup for coffee)

Dining

Close to Univ of Pittsburgh, close to a lot of restaurants and cafe

Wyndham University

Would recommend Thu, May 22, 2014
This hotel is well situated for visitors to the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, or the Carnegie Museum. Our room and the lobby were immaculate; the room was spacious. We did not eat in the restaurant but it looked pleasant from outside.

Attractions

Nearby are beautiful Heinz Chapel and the Cathedral of Learning

The best part of this hotel is it's location. It is literally across the street from the Cathedral of Learning and is within walking distance of both the Pitt and CMU campuses. Getting in and out of the parking area is tight and the spaces are even tighter. All of the staff that we interacted with were extremely nice and personable. The only downside to the hotel was the bed and pillows, which unfortunately is kind of the most important part of the hotel. The bed was firm and uncomfortable, but the pillows were overly soft with my head basically going straight through it. I needed two pillows to keep my neck up, but it still wasn't perfectly comfortable. Using three pillows? Not even an option as at that point it would go the other way and be too high and uncomfortable. So two pillows was best, but still not as nice as one pillow I've had at other hotels. All in all, it was usable and we slept well, with just a crick in the neck when we woke up. Everything was clean and well-maintained and I would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs to be right on campus.

Nightlife hint

Pittsburgh has a strip of bars in South Side on East Carson St. This is the most bars per square foot in the country. Definitely worth checking out on a Friday or Saturday.

Perfect for visiting University of Pittsburgh

Would recommend Thu, Oct 17, 2013
Prior to this visit I had avoided the Holiday Inn university center because of reviews that it was "just okay" and "in need of an update". Now that Wyndham has taken over and done a complete re-model the rooms are new, clean and the beds are super comfortable! We stayed in an executive room which has a lounge for a "deluxe continental breakfast". I would not characterize the breakfast as "deluxe" (yes, it has some fruit and some yogurt and hard-boiled eggs, but I've had better at other hotels). Other than that, the location can't be beat for visiting our kids at U of Pitt.

Great for Univ of Pitt visit

Would recommend Mon, Sep 23, 2013
Loved the hotel. Nice room. Nice bar. Convenient parking. Very convenient for visiting daughter at Pitt. Felt very safe walking alone at night. Would REALLY have like a small refridgerator for keeping soda/water cold and microwave to reheat leftovers.

Attractions

Cathedral of Learning self guided tour of nationality rooms is AWESOME. Visit the gift shop in the cathedral to begin. Very inexpensive and well worth it. Gorgeous and very impressive.
