Based on a previous post, I was expecting a "newer" hotel. Nicely referbished, but the bones of the hotel are much older. Get ready for a hotel surrounded by streets and a major highway or two. If you are OK with the constant hum of cars, then the hotel will be OK for you.
The staff went out of its way to give me the most quiet room as possible. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. The room was very clean, but a little on the small side. Business center is very small and basic with one computer and printer. If you have plans for the Univ of Pitt or CMU this hotel is an OK choice. Otherwise, I would probably stay in the downtown area next time.
The self parking is right outside the main lobby. Easy parking, but you have to pay $14 to self park....apparently common in Pittsburgh. Very close self park avoids hastles with valet and parking garages.
The Hampton breakfast experience is usually average to below average, but this place had the worst Hampton breakfast yet. The one hot meal was apparently egg and cheese on a bagel.....maybe? Very tiny yogurts, small bread/bagel selection. I did not like the whole breakfast set-up. "Free" breakfast did not seem worth it this time.
There is a Panera Bread two blocks a way, and a more places to eat closer to Univ of Pitt. I recommend a GPS to find the hotel or you may have problems, as mentioned in previous posts.
