We stayed at the Renaissance Pittsburgh because it was within walking distance to Heinz field. I called a few weeks in advance to confirm our reservations and The lady I talked to was very friendly and gave me some great advice on how the locals hang out prior to a Steelers game. We chatted a little bit and when I informed her that this was our first time in Pittsburgh, she said she would do what she could to upgrade us. Little did we know that she upgraded us to the top floor, corner room! We had the view of Heinz field, the city and the river! It was amazing!
Room: The room was very elegant with an incredibly comfortable bed. It had a normal TV, dresser and closet. The bathroom was spacious and everything was VERY CLEAN! The BEST part about the room was the giant arch windows overlooking the city!
Location: Ok, the only bad part is that it's about a 30 minute drive from the airport which will be about a $35-40 cab fare. Which isn't that bad considering a shuttle would be about $40 a person (The hotel gave me that advice!) Once you get to the hotel you are in easy walking distance to shops, food, theaters etc! And for you coffee lovers, there's a Starbucks a block away! But you might not even need to leave the hotel... They have a great restaurant and a nice sports bar/pub for you to just go an hang out.
Fun Note: They don't have a 13th floor :)
Overall, this was an excellent hotel with some of the friendliest and courteous staff i've ever met! It is worth every penny :)
