When you arrive by cab or airport shuttle, you are dropped off on Forbes Ave., and you enter the hotel somewhat between floors. You either walk down a set of stairs to meeting rooms, or up to check in. An odd arrangement. I was glad that I didn't have heavy luggage. I was traveling solo, and had booked a king. The room was attractive, but really tiny (and next to the service elevator). I immediately hit my shins on the bed frame, took a photo (see one labeled room 511), and went back down to trade rooms. Thankfully, a switch was possible, so I headed to room 601, which had 2 queens, and was definitely larger. Again, the room was attractive. The bed was extra extra firm, and I couldn't seem to adjust it. Other than that, all was great. It was nice to have a personal Keurig machine in the room. If I had stayed longer, the microwave and fridge would have come in handy as well. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the location was close to Pitt, the Carnegie Museum, and other Oakland District sites.
