“Excellent location to watch Penguins”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

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.

I've stayed at this hotel several times, but both business and pleasure. Nice hotel, right across the street from the Consol Energy Center. Rooms are clean, pool is nice, good restaurant, nice lounge, ample parking in the garage.

Booked on priceline and had a rate $150 less than surrounding hotels. When I arrived, the clerk was pleasant and offered me room with two beds. I asked if I could get one king sized bed. She said no problem. Room was nice, good view on 19th floor. Bathroom is really small by American standards BUT room was set up for one person. And I don't see the need for big bathrooms in a hotel room. Ordered room service which was reasonably priced. Food was good. Service was excellent. Portions were large. Only took a few minutes to get my car from valet parking. I forgot deodorant. I went to commissary to purchase some for $4.50. Went to front desk to pay, and clerk said that they had complimentary sample size he would give me. To me, that was an excellent gesture. Was hotel glamourous...no. Were elevators crowded and slow at busy times...yes. But overall a good stay. See no reason not to stay here if you are a reasonable person/traveler.

Green Features: minimal amount of towels in room. However, there was enough for one person.

We live in Pittsburgh, but needed to stay downtown for an event at the convention center, and we could not have been more impressed with this hotel's rooms, amenities, and proximity to all things Pittsburgh. First, the location can't be beat. Right next door to Consol Energy Center, a walk to the David L. Lawrence Convention center and Duquesne University, and there is a light rail station only a block away. We were able to see the amazing Strip District, PNC park, the cultural district, and Market Square without any effort at all. Great sites, great views, great museums, and great dining are just outside the door. Come to Pittsburgh--it's a great city and this is the place to stay.

This is the 3rd time we have visited Pittsburgh from the UK and we stayed here again because it is literally right next door to the Consol Energy Center, home of the Pittsburgh Penguins. The hotel bar is rockin' with fans both before and after the game and lots of out of town Penguins fans stop here overnight. Breakfast is good and the rooms are the usual high standard you expect from a Marriott. Underground car parking is reasonable priced if you self park, the valet is a bit pricey. There is a Starbucks located across the foyer from reception which is a great alternative to the big breakfast option. The hotel is literally 5 minutes walk from everything in downtown Pittsburgh, the Incline railways, Andy Warhol Museum and lots of restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for a west facing room, they have the better view

We spent a recent weekend at this Marriott in Pittsburgh. Convenient to everything -- beautiful rooms -- great bar and restaurant -- the friendliest people. For a late night snack please try the ice cream sandwiches -- chocolate ice cream between the best slightly salty crispy cookies. You'll want more the next night.

Room Tip: We were next to the elevators but never heard a thing.

This place definitely meets your expectations for a standard Marriott. Good concierge lounge, friendly staff, good central location in town (next to where the Penguins play), etc. The city actually broke a water line during my stay and the hotel went out of their way to communicate the issue and estimated time for the issue to be fixed.
