Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

While the location is good, it was one of the dirtiest rooms I’ve walked into with visible crumbs and trash on floor. Hallway was also dirty. Parking is $22 a day and breakfast is ridiculously overpriced. They tried to limit our ‘free breakfast’ to only two people even though I had made the reservation for three. I would choose to stay elsewhere.

I stayed a lot in this hotel in the past, even at the time when it was a Holiday Inn. But I have to say the last two visits were disappointing. In one, a fire alarm went out all night and that did not provide for a good night sleep experience. In the most recent, I had to call the staff to come help me into the room because the key mechanism was not working. Despite calling them on the order of 5 times, they did not really see that some fix was needed. They were very nice though (all of them, including int he restaurant). The facility is beginning to show its age.

This hotel met expections. Not fancy but it is clean, comfortable and quiet. Check-in was fast and courteous.

Clean room, safe location. I have made this hotel my go to place to stay in Pittsburgh

The hotel is very tired. Our room was very dusty and the carpet is gross

This is a Bindaas place yaar. So good You should check it out This is a review based on a recent stay

Room not ready at check in time. Had to come back later.

Waited 30 minutes for a table for breakfast while the restaurant was empty. Service at Bridges restaurant stunk. Had to flag down a server after 20 minutes to order. Also, never cleaned my room on second day. Very disappointed.

Understaffed restaurant Dirt around the corners in the room and bath. Flakey elevators Good people Convenient location

Staff was very friendly. Parking was convenient. The room was very clean. Overall a good experience.

We've stayed here numerous times. Always well staffed with friendly workers. Great made to order breakfast in the restaurant that is included in the price most of the time. Convenient parking, too, which is not easy to find. If you are visiting Pitt, you cannot beat the location as it is virtually on the campus.

We had a great stay at this hotel! Hotel staff were great and I would definitely stay here again!

Very nice no problems nice accommodation Enjoyed our stay

We were just stopping here for the night so it was booked short notice. The room and staff were nice. Room was clean and comfortable however the curtains did not close, which sucked when the sun came up early the next morning. The parking.......is awful. I can't believe they charge $20 a day for it. I was told to use the lot next door. It was tiny maybe 20 spaces. If you drive to the end it's impossible to turn around if you don't find a spot. Had to back all the way out. Then told there was additional parking in the garage below. Again about 20 or so spaces and they were almost all obstructed by cement pillars which made it impossible to pull in. My husband had to exit on my side, passenger side, of the vehicle. It was terrible. They really need to remedy that. Aside from the curtains and the parking, a nice stay.

No fridge, no bathroom fan, bad sink faucet and worn carpet. However, clean , comfy bed, accommodating staff and best u Pitt and Oakland location. Also parking was easy ($20/day, self park)

Visiting U of Pitt, stayed one night, had a late dinner at the hotel restaurant/bar.

Noisy. No fridge or microwave. Charged $20 for parking when gate was up & there would not have been charge. Quite Disappointing. Stayed in town to be at work in am with icy roads predicted.

There was a mouse in our room. We found water bottles and socks under the bed. Regardless I didn't sleep and it effected my important business meeting. Staff was very nice

Nice hotel but would expect more for the money I paid. Comfy beds and pillows though!

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.
