We stayed 2 days to go see the Penguins play (I'm from Pittsburgh). I used my rewards from IHG, but if I had paid I would say this place is a great value. Staff was very helpful and took give me "directions for an idiot" to everywhere I wanted to go...I appreciated that as I have no sense of direction. If I come back to Columbus to stay downtown I will stay here again. Wi-Fi was great, room was clean, we slept like logs on the bed, and the breakfast was hot. Stayed in a non-smoking room and there was no hint of smoke.
Arena district is just great...note to the city of Pittsburgh...come see it and learn.
Only thing I can see they could improve upon is to let people know what a great value the valet parking is when one checks in. I parked at the public lot and upon check-in was told that valet is cheaper and easier.
Will stay here again...NO DOUBT!!!
