My mother had a last minute operation which required me to drop everything and fly from Houston to Pittsburgh. This hotel could not be more accommodating. Booking, check in/out, transport to Allegheny General Hospital and a lovely room made my stay so very pleasant. Anything I asked, they could help. They faxed mom's paperwork among other requests. All staff were...

The overall feel of the hotel was awesome, super clean rooms and nice staff. Location is unbeatable, easily walkable to both stadiums, downtown, and the strip district. So many restaurants and points of interest within a few blocks. Didn't try the bistro/restaurant downstairs, looked a little pricey though. It's right downtown but was quiet. Unless you can shell out $25...

I'm here now and as a platinum elite with marriott... they gave us a shabby room, even though I asked for an upgrade I understand it's a very busy weekend but this is beyond dirty.

I agree with most of the reviews. The hotel is clean, updated with nice-sized rooms. It's located within walking distance of many restaurants, shops, etc. You need to either valet your car or park in the public garage down the street. Even though it's a bit expensive for a Courtyard, I would recommend staying here. My only complaints are that...

The hotel was nice enough inside, room was large, friendly staff. The hot water took some time to adjust and parking was limited in the area. I had no choice but use the valet. $25 in addition to the nightly room rate.
