“Great Hotel!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

This was one of the best hotels that we have ever been to. It is always neat and clean and everyone is so nice. The service is very good, and this hotel offers everything you need. We would love to come again soon!

Room Tip: Rooms seem to be cleaner on the lower floors.

This was the perfect hotel to stay at while looking at the colleges in the area. Good location. Plus, the breakfast was yummy. The only thing that I couldn't figure out is why the make your own waffles were in the shape of Texas and not Pennsylvania.

Dear Linda G, thank you for taking the time to review our hotel on TripAdvisor. We appreciate your kind words in regards to our hotel. Thank you for stating that our complimentary breakfast was "yummy" and that our location is ideal for anyone visiting the 5 Colleges and Universities in the area. As for the waffles, our management team is based in Texas and this is just a little something to pay homage to our company's roots.

I especially like their policy of cleaning all bed covers between guests. This was a very good location for us. We stayed 3 days and the staff was very helpful since we had never been to Pittsburgh. View from the room was not very appealing but didn't stay in the room very much. There were plenty of restaurants near-by and we were there to visit Carnegie Mellon. We did need a car however.

I have stayed at this hotel about 10 times in the last year or so. The rooms are always clean and the beds are comfortable. It is very convenient to the nearby colleges, my son goes to CMU, and you get a using the college discount. The staff is always very helpful and the shuttle is great. It was very crowdeed this past weekend so finding a spot to eat breakfast was a little more difficult than usual but worked out. The breakfast selection is limited but this has never been a problem. There are usually a couple of hot dishes and plenty of pastries, bagels yogurt, fruit and cereals. the food is fresh and I always leave feeling satisfied. You get free Wi-fi which is a bonus. I will continue to stay at this location when I visit Pittsburgh.

The family and I just returned from a quick vacation to Pittsburgh. After reviewing the hotel options on Tripadvisor, I booked us in at the Hampton Inn University Center. We enjoyed our stay and couldn't beat the price, free breakfast and free shuttle option the hotel offered (take advantage of the shuttle service - we were dropped off at the Strip, walked through downtown and across the bridge to the South Side to ride the Gateway Clipper and the Monongahela Incline. Suffice to say, we were tired from walking all day and were able to call and quickly enjoy a comfortable ride back to the hotel - the shuttle happened to be in the area and pulled up before I finished my phone call to pick us up!). The staff were friendly, the room was clean. Yes the hallway smelled a little musty (as noted on another Tripadvisor review), but our room didn't and that was most important. We would definitely stay at the Hampton Inn University Center again !

I had the privilege of living at this property for six months while on TDY in Pittsburgh and can not recommend this hotel enough. The property is not new and does not have the bells and whistles that other properties boast but the service and hospitality at this property should be modeled across the brand.

Jonathan, the GM, was usually out in the lobby in the afternoons greeting guests and always made it a point to ask about my day. The front desk staff (Shauna, Sarah, Beverley, too many others to name them all) were always smiling and very helpful holding my mail and area recommendations.

One of this properties best features is the shuttle. There is a lot to do within three miles of the property and Tracy, Glenn, and Rick (in the shuttle) can attest that I tried to see it all.

If you are passing through for work or in town for a game this is the best place to stay in the city.

PS: If you find yourself in the shuttle with Matt, the AGM, ask him for the Bill and Art special tour of Mt Washington.

Room Tip: Higher floors and even numbers have a great view of the city.

We stayed here for a concert at PNC Park. The shuttle service was a great feature, dropped us off just across the river from the stadium. We took a cab back ($8), because the shuttle only runs until 10 pm. The hotel is very nice and clean, exactly what you expect from the Hampton brand. Only downfalls were the $14 parking fee (come on??), and the limited space for breakfast. It was very crowded the morning after our stay! But they wouldn't keep us from staying here in the future.
