I stayed here for the 3rd and 4th night of a trip to Pittsburgh for a Penguins home opener. I made a pilgrimage from California to see the Stanley Cup Championship banner go up and be at the last home opener of Penguins hockey at Mellon Arena on Friday night. My stay here was relocation from another area hotel that could not accommodate a 4 night stay. I spent the first nights at the Hampton Inn & Suites on Smallman St. The stay here at the Doubletree was a Saturday arrival and checking out on Monday afternoon.
The room was not very large but still comfortable. The bed was comfortable and provided great sleep. The bathroom was smallish. I was alone and the bathroom was still a tight fit; not much room to move around. The sitting chair and ottoman offer a nice place to sit and read a book or a desk and chair to work at where one can get some work done if not distracted by the great view of downtown as I had. I was on the side that faced 6th St & Ross St so had a beautiful view of downtown perched 19 floors above the bustling city below. This made for a great vantage point to get some nighttime shots and try some new photo techniques so the windows which actually opened allowed for this. Windows opened wide open. The halls were noisy too as the closing doors of other rooms echoed down the hallways at all hours of the night.
The room was a little over $200/night and parking an additional $18/day. Parking is valet only but came with unlimited in-out privilege. They provided one voucher for a free buffet breakfast which would have otherwise cost $15. It has a pretty decent location too. Mellon arena is practically at your back door and is a short walk from the cultural district. I went to Larry the Cable Guy on Saturday night at the Benedum Center about a 10 minute walk down the hill. The restaurant food was good but not really noteworthy; in other words it wasn’t spectacular. Standard fare breakfast buffet: eggs; seasonal fresh fruit; pancakes; French toast; bacon; sausage; pastries; muffins; bagels; and cold or hot cereal. Or you could have the chef make you an omelet with your choice of ingredients.
