The hotel is well positioned downtown Pittsburgh. Check in was prompt and they had plenty of their signature cookies. The exercise room is one of the nicest I have ever seen at a hotel and they had an outstanding indoor pool. Everything was well maintained and clean.
On the downside, the beds were terrible (seriously terrible) and parking was a nightmare. There is a small street next to the hotel where you can pay .25 per 5 minutes...if you can find a spot (the street fits maybe 12 cars). When we came back to the hotel that evening, our intention was to park in the hotel garage (2nd floor). However, it was very tiny and completely full (I can't imagine how this doesn't get full by 2pm).
So, we were directed the underground parking garage across the street. To get from the garage to the hotel, you exit through the lobby of the building about 1000 feet away. However, there is no straight path from the lobby to the hotel...you need to walk around the building's courtyard and then back up the hill about 1000 feet. I had the joy of doing this after dark with my wife and two small children. I wouldn't walk downtown with my friends not to mention with my wife and two small children. In Ohio, we have concealed carry permits. At that moment, I wish I was back in Ohio.
