If you want to sleep well in this hotel you need to chose your room very carefully. Do not be taken in by the staff explaining that "the piling exceeded all specifications" and best in class sound insullation was used. These may both be correct, but they are insufficient to insulate the noise from frequent 50 car+ freight trains that thunder past day and night. Even during the small hours the frequency of these trains leaves one astonished at the efficiency of the US freight train system. Talking with a number of guests, it seems that the noise is much more of an issue in the rooms nearest to the line, as would be expected. However that does leave locating a quiet room a little too much to chance.

Otherwise the concept of the hotel is good, the rooms are large and modern, everything works, this is a pleasant hotel, and the staff are friendly, and it was clearly popular and busy.

Breakfast is a do-it-yourself affair, porridge and dried fruit, muffins, danish pastries and the like, bagels, and a small hot selection. Juices, teas, coffees etc. All served on disposable polystyrene plates with plastic cutlery.

The gym is small and not well equipped for the size of the hotel. There is a very small pool.

Overall for the price this is an intereesting formula and not bad value - were it not for that train track and noise. That alone reduces the overall rating considerably and makes it difficult to recommend this hotel.

Staff is friendly and the rooms have a nice feel. Just as important, the location is excellent for business. Close enough to downtown, Oakland, suburban clients and Shadyside to be convenient...but offers a less cramped feel since the river and running trails are right in front of the property.

The hotel layout and location are great, the room was spotless, staff were friendly and professional. I put my bags in the room, went out for dinner, and upon returning, nearly felt the train going under the property - there's a train tunnel immediately behind the hotel and apparently they have to blow the whistle for the tunnel. Looks like I'm getting no sleep tonight; bottom line if you get a room on the north side overlooking the river, you will really like this hotel. If they try to give you a room on the south corner towards the track, refuse it and RUN! (Now that's ironic - another train just blew it's whistle as I wrote this. Gotta get back to church tomorrow for 6 am Mass....)

I have never stayed at a Springhill Suites before, and I would definitely stay again. This hotel is new and very modern. The staff is friendly and very helpful. There are plenty of restaurants and things to do close by in the SouthSide Works.
