As we planned a weekend getaway to Pittsburgh, we were looking for a hotel close to the Consol Center since a Penguins game was part of our itinerary. The Marriott City Center couldn't be any closer, so I booked a room. I called ahead and asked if we could have early check-in so that we could change and freshen up before heading to the Consol Center; the clerk couldn't guarantee it, but our room was ready when we checked in at 1:00. I had also asked about storing our bicycles (which we decided to leave home), and a storage room was immediately offered.
The rooms are compact, but clean and provided all necessary amenities. The beds and pillows were comfortable. Our view of the city was outstanding! I always prefer a free breakfast, which is not an option at this property. I also thought the $22 parking fee was a little steep, but I'm guessing that's probably the going rate for a hotel in the middle of the city.
The Fitness Center is the best I have ever used, with a large number of popular treadmills and elliptical machines and windows looking into the pool. Each machine also has its own closed-caption television screen.
