“Great place to stay for visit to Carnegie Mellon”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Stayed here during a visit to tour Carnegie Mellon. Restaurants, drug store and Carnegie are all within walking distance. Stayed in a two bedroom with a kitchen. We didn't cook but the kitchen had a lot of cooking supplies. Free parking, but we didn't need the car. Taxi from the airport was estimated by the hotel to be around $60.

Four rating instead of five is because the internet in the room was spotty and the second bedroom was a bit warm. Air conditioning/heating were in the living room and main bedroom. Needed to keep the doors open to cool the 2nd bedroom. Very comfortable beds and nice living/dining space.

Hello FamilytraveleerMN,

Thank you for your kind review. I just wanted to mention that we have 75 nodes scattered around the property providing all the wifi we can serve up. We just placed an order for 20 more nodes to even further beef up our network. These are all mesh routers so its possible that you may have been connected to a node that was more distant to you than we would have liked. A simple power cycle of your wifi card usually does the trick. Now that we are installing 20 more there shouldn't be a square inch of the property not covered by a strong signal near your location! We look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Thanks

Jonathan P.

Recently returned to Pittsburgh to see some friends. We are Pitt Alumni and wanted to stay somewhere close to campus but now we have a baby and were looking for a place with a bedroom so we could put the baby to bed early and still have space. This place was cheaper than some standard hotel rooms and you got so much more space! The apartment was great! It had everything that we needed. 2 bedrooms, a dining/living room, and a kitchen. It was perfect for us. We have a 19 month old and it was easy to put her to bed in the bedroom- the hotel even had a pack-n-play that we borrowed for no charge! just a note there was air conditioning the living room and master bedroom, but in the smaller bedroom there was only a fan and no AC. The weather was very hot while we were there (in the 90's) and the baby slept fine with the ceiling fan on and the door closed. It was warmer in that room than our master bedroom, but she seemed comfortable. The kitchen could be bigger and have more counter space, but it was big enough. May be hard to cook a large meal in there, but we didn't cook because Walnut street was just 2 blocks away and there are so many great restaurants there. They were repaving the main parking lot while we were staying there, but even not being able to use that lot there was plenty of parking in the overflow parking lot across the street. It was nicer once that lot was reopened, because we was just steps away from our room. The staff was really nice. We got a nice gift bag when we checked in and a phone call later that evening from the front desk just to see if we needed anything. We will definitely stay here again!

Hi Kelly H, thanks so much for your kind words and perspective on baby care in our suites! We have families of all sizes and age ranges stay with us, and a whole lot of them emphasize what you did: that it makes a huge difference to have separate rooms for everybody inside one big suite. It's also nice to hear that our energy-efficient air conditioning system is baby-approved, and that the parking lot repaving didn't disrupt your stay. We're constantly upgrading the property, so it's great to know we were able to improve the place without interrupting your enjoyment of Walnut Street. Please come back any time, we'll have a free crib and goodie bag waiting for you!

We recently stayed at the Shadyside inn and we were beyond impressed with the cleanliness, the decor was awesome, the location rocked, and it was nice to not stay at a chain hotel for a change! We will be staying there every time we come to the city!!

Hello Courtneylcochran,

Thank you for your review. We are thrilled that you had such a positive experience. Shadyside Inn is a refreshing change from the cookie-cutter experience. All of our suites are residential-style which means our guests enjoy the comforts of living in home like setting but with all the amenities of a hotel. Next time you come to the city give us a call so we can do something special for you.

Best Regards,

We needed to be in Pittsburgh for a wedding that was to be immediately followed by a family relocation to that same city. Everyone at Shadyside was so helpful and the ability to use the self-catering facilities was a great help to all of us. Clean, minimalist but comfortable room. Good wifi, helpful staff and the one free ride a day in a hotel car within the close environs was so,so useful. Recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Pittsburgh.

Only stayed one night in late May but this place is great. The staff was super friendly. The grounds were clean and well tended. The parking was pretty easy in lot and on the street (even with a cargo van). The rooms were clean and comfortable. Resturants and boutiques were just around the corner. I would definitely stay here again.

Hello nuge07,

Thanks for your feedback on your stay at Shadyside Inn. We are thrilled that you had such a positive impression of our hotel. This spring we made an huge effort to improve the natural green setting around our grounds. Being located in a residential neighborhood really affords us the luxury of having courtyards around the property for our guests to enjoy. Being within a quick 5 minute walk to 120 plus shops and restaurants is one of our best assets. Walnut Street is Shadyside's upscale retail district and our guests enjoy all the benefits of being steps away from such a great attraction. We look forward to having you stay with us again in the future and are excited about showing off some of the new things we are planning for the hotel!

Best Regards,

Jonathan P.

This location is very convenient to the campuses of the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon and the Shadyside neighborhood - the stores on Walnut Street are a short walk, and Fifth Avenue is a major thoroughfare through the city. The staff is very friendly and responsive, and we were pleased with the service we received from them. We stayed in a studio suite in the building across Fifth Avenue from the main office. While the furniture seemed to have been recently updated, the facilities themselves (walls, bathroom fixtures, windows, air conditioning, etc.) were not, and the room felt more like a dorm room than a hotel. While everything was fine, for the high price we paid for Pittsburgh (equivalent to higher-end hotel chains), we had expected a lot more polish to the room. We might consider a return visit if we could find a substantially lower rate, but, for this price, we would have preferred a traditional hotel.

Hello cardinalash,

Thank you for your visit and feedback on your experience. I am pleased that you found our location and staff so appealing. We have a wide range of suite styles to suit just about anyones needs. Over the last two years we have undergone a tremendous reinvention of our suites and the concept. All of our suites received new furniture and decor. Two years ago we installed highly efficient and environmentally friendly HVAC mini-split systems in all of the suites in addition to new windows the year before. In the coming year we plan on staring to redo the bathroom fixtures in all of our suites. All of our suites are priced well below the chain hotels in the area and we are the only hotel to offer free parking. I would love to have you come back and try one of our one or two bedroom suites. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. We strive to be a value to our guests and will do anything to ensure each guest's experience is special. Please don't hesitate to contact me directly if I can be of any additional service to you.

Best Regards,

Jonathan P.

Hi Paynedeb,

Thank you for your glowing review. So much work goes into making Shadyside Inn a special place and that work starts and ends with our amazing staff. Bridget, one of our managers, is a perfect example of how the right people can really enhance a guests experience. While we have a great location, huge suites, and the right mix of amenities it is really our staff that makes the hotel what it is. Thank you for singling them out. This kind of feedback only pushes everyone to try even harder. We would love to see you again in the future and look forward to hosting you soon.

Best Regards,

Jonathan P.
