We stayed here to tour the University of Pittsburgh during one of their ready set Pitt program weekends. The hotel was nice and clean. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We loved the free shuttle service and didn't have to move the car. Breakfast was included and was the usual. The pool was clean. The only downside was that the wifi was not working. I mentioned this when we checked out and they waived our parking fee. Should we return to the area I would definitely stay here again.

Though the hotel has a few quirks, we found this to be a very convenient, clean & well-situated hotel for our 2 days of college visits.
Negatives:1) $15.00 parking fee; 2) pending on which floor of the hotel you are on, you may have to take 2 elevators from the car park to your room;3) you have to take an elevator to the 1st floor to check in (but I've encountered this at a few other residence inns too).
Positives: 1) The staff were incredibly nice & helpful; 2) the room/whole hotel was very clean; 3) it is very well located for visiting U Pitt and they have an excellent, regular, free shuttle bus which will take you to Carnegie Mellon or downtown as well as U Pitt. 4) Good choice of hot & cold items for buffet breakfast; 5) swimming pool and basketball court! 6) tea, coffee, hot chocolate & iced water available all day in lobby; 6) There's a neat little Italian restaurant just a 5 minute walk away if you don't want to eat in your room.

The room was a decent size & the main bed was very comfortable - the sofa bed was about as good as it gets, but it's still a sofa bed! I can't talk for other rooms, but ours looked fairly new, the bathroom was very light & clean and the kitchen area was very well equipped with full size fridge/freezer, microwave, etc.

The Residence Inn is easily within walking distance from University Center, which is nice, as the roads in Pittsburgh are incredibly confusing. As an added benefit, you can leave your car in their garage until 5 pm on the day that you check out. Parking does cost $15/day. However, there are problems. The elevators are incredibly slow. You also have to take 2 separate elevators to get to your room (1 to the lobby, 1 from the lobby to the rooms). You exit the hot elevators into freezing, weird-smelling halls. The rooms are clean, but they really need a renovation. The bathrooms are really dark (just 1 dim light) and the furniture is showing its age. The headboard was riddled with scratches, and the carpet was laden with stains. The chair in the living room was literally disintegrating, and the sofa bed was incredibly uncomfortable. On the plus side, everything was clean to the touch, the rooms are large, the ceilings are high, and the views are good.

Breakfast is really good. They have waffles with lots of toppings, oatmeal & granola with toppings, meat, yogurt parfait, and all of the other things you'd expect. You can eat on their nice terrace. If they updated the rooms, the hotel would be really nice. The location is great, but the rooms are just disappointing.

My room smells like an Indian restaurant, the chair is so old that the leather is cracked and rubbed all the way through, the privacy curtain does not close all the way, the AC does not keep the room cold even on maximum, the carpet is dirty in the hallways, and brochures for a pizza restaurant everywhere that you look in the public areas (tacky), and parking is $15 - this is by far the worst Marriott I've ever stayed at. The only positive note: front desk was helpful and pleasant.

Awkward check-in such that it is not at the level you arrive at with luggage. Rooms large enough and nice to have three TV's in the two bedroom suite. The furniture was outdated. Didn't like the $15/day parking fee. Upside - very conveniently located for exploring downtown Pittsburgh.
