Traveled to Pittsburgh with my son for a get away trip to see the city and some Penguins' hockey. Hotel was in a great location although a bit on the quiet side if no sporting events are taking place. Walking to downtown was an easy 10 minute thing across the Roberto Clemente bridge which was safe and walker friendly. Room was nice with your standard RI kitchen+living room+bedroom area+bathroom. All amenities, great bed, spacious area in general.
The highlight was really the shuttle service which was at our disposition pretty much. I imagine when the hotel is packed things are different. But with us, they took us downtown when we needed (had to wait maybe 5 minutes once) and they pick you up fairly rapidly. Again, waited maybe 10 min tops at the Strip. Friendly staff, eager to help you out. One drawback: Internet service on the public computers in the lobby was a bit slow but hey, it was free and available!
The bfast buffet is basic but you walk out of there fed and ready to go so can't beat that. most of the restaurants around were closed. Had dinner at Atria's (4 min walk just under the baseball stadium) and that was quite nice. Brunch at Meatballs (10 min walk in downtown) was awesome.
The rate seemed a little on the high side despite the AAA discount and feeling like it was "out of season", but frankly, it was great and we enjoyed our stay very much. Recommend this hotel to families, couples, business travelers, anyone!
