Hotel near PNC Park

Hi, 4 of us planning a guys weekend to Pittsburgh this summer for some ball games, looking for a reccomendation for a good hotel within walking distance to the ballpark. Not looking for the Ritz or a dump. Also, any good pubs, restaurants near the area. Thanks.

We stay at the Hampton Inn downtown whenever we go to PNC. It is an easy walk to the ballpark and has the only free parking in the downtown area.

If your dates are all set, go to the Hilton website before the end of Jan. to get a discount price for weekends in late July through Sept. You will have to prepay to get the discounted price. Earlier in the summer is quite a bit more expensive but still a good deal compared to other hotels.

As far as restaurants, there are several in the strip district that are good. We have also ate at Bettis grill which is next to Heinz field - not to far of a walk. There are several places across from PNC also.

Make sure that you check the promotional dates on the schedule as the Skyblast firework dates are 6/5, 8/7 and 9/4. Also some other dates with regular fireworks and concerts. We always get the tickets on ebay and try to get them from season ticket holders so that we can get into batting practice 30 min. earlier than normal. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions about your visit.

Springhill Suites is right next to the park.

There are plenty of eating and drinking establishments on the North Shore as well including Grille 36, McFaddens, Atria, and more.

There are also two new hotels under construction on the North Shore right next to PNC Park. I believe one is a Residence Inn and one may be a Hyatt property. Not sure if they will be open by the time you visit, but they may have some grand-opening specials if they are. Have fun!!
