I was initially attracted to this hotel because our two pugs can stay with us. Clean and comfortable rooms. Nice buffet in morning but scrambled eggs could use a little work. Have always found the staff friendly and helpful.

Stayed: August 2013, travelled with family

The friendliest Hampton I've stayed at so far. I live outside of Pittsburgh and had decided to stay downtown because I was attending a conference and wanted to avoid the downtown rush hour. Everyone was so friendly from the front desk, to the shuttle, to the breakfast bar....so nice to know that in my own city when travelers come they are being treated this way! Thank you...

My daughter, granddaughter and I stayed here overnight to visit my other granddaughter at Carlow University. This was my first stay at the hotel. I found it to be very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. The bed and pillows were great. I was pleasantly surprised that the hotel was very quiet during the night. The breakfast was very good. It was also a pleasure to have coffee available in the lobby 24/7.

I will definitely be returning.

Stayed: October 2013

I stayed here while attending a conference at a nearby university. I was very pleased about the quality complimentary breakfast, complimentary shuttle service, and availability of parking. The room was clean and well-decorated. The bed was not the most comfortable, but not the worst I have experienced. The fitness center did not offer a whole lot of equipment, but was adequate for my needs. Overall the staff was very helpful and I felt welcome.

This was our first time staying at the Hampton Inn and were very happy with out stay. It is in walking distance to the campus which was very important to us. The hotel had a nice breakfast to start your day with and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We loved having the shuttle service, when we got stuck in the rain in South side we just called and they came and got us within 10 minutes. Overall it was a nice stay.

We stayed this hotel several times, mostly for convenience, as our daughter is studying at the University of Pittsburgh and her apartment is close to this Hampton Inn.

The hotel is busy at check-in/check-out time and the small lobby and plus the free breakfast in the morning attached to the lobby makes some annoyances, with all the bodies flying toward the coffee (one side of the lobby) and the food service (opposite side of the lobby). The parking lot (not free, $15) is also annoying, as the spaces are very small and difficult to maneuver. If you have a new car, I will counsel you to park your car across the street...though you will walk a little longer to the front lobby door, you could prevent 'pings' on your car's doors. The bad part is though the car prevention is a plus, you will not prevent the $15 parking fee.

The hotel is clean and, in most occasions, the desk help are polite. One occasion, when the Squirrel Hill Tunnel was in repairs and cars were lined up for hours, a desk help sent us to a great route home and save hours of frustration. If you are a Pitt/CMU parent, the hotel's clientele will mostly colleges' parents and you will find plenty of good conversation at the breakfast. The last booked room gave free newspapers, though in other occasions, they did not.

The price of the room is correlated to a home game. Away games' costs are almost half of a home game. On one occasion, I booked a room at the William Penn Hotel (nice hotel, by the way) and saved 75 bucks over this Hampton because....Pitt Football was home against U of VA.

The free breakfast is a plus, though the omelet was made of eggs, I think.

My take: book it for $130; for $240-$260, shop around.

This hotel was not near the stadiums or downtown, however the staff and shuttle were fantastic on getting you to these locations at convenient intervals!!! Shuttle driver, Tracy was extremely helpful on information on what was not allowed into Heniz Field.
