carnegie natural history museum

We will be flying to Pittsburgh and plan to get the 28x airport bus to some hotel near the museum that is reasonably priced.Is there any hotel close to a bus stop and would there be a shuttle to the museum or would there be a hotel within walking distance John

There are several hotels in Oakland which would be within walking distance of this museum; Holiday Inn Select-University Center; Wyndham Gardens--University Place.; Hampton Inn--University Center (this is maybe a mile from the museum, definitely walkable though farther than the other two. Also they have a shuttle service).

The 28X bus runs along Forbes Avenue in Oakland; Wyndham Hotel is right on that street; Holiday Inn is one block up on Fifth (and the bus comes along 5th Ave. heading back into town); Hampton Inn would be maybe 4 blocks down from Forbes. I don't know if this bus makes all the stops the regular buses do (which is pretty much every block through Oakland) or not.

Have a good trip.
