“Probably the best Courtyard stay I've ever had”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

I really love staying in the big Marriotts downtown. They give great service and have great facilities. This Courtyard had all that the big guys have to offer.

The location is great, close to where I was meeting. Not easy to find but that is more about Pittsburgh topography than it is about the hotel.

The staff is absolutely top notch, very friendly and helpful. The valet was backed up so the Ops Manager came out and tagged my car for me. Nice touch. He even directed me to a little pizza place with really good food and delivery.

I even give them bonus points for having a real breakfast in the morning rather than the Cafe thign that so many Courtyards have gone to.

The hotel staff was great! It was clean. And it was walking distance to pnc park which was our reason for the visit. The pool was located on the same floor as our room which was great for our son. The shuttle service was nice and the drivers were beyond nice and helpful

My husband and I spent one night at the Courtyard by Marriott in Shadyside. The desk clerk was very friendly and accomodating and upgraded us to a king bed as soon as I asked. Every single employee greeted us with a friendly greeting and smile. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I was especially pleased that they offer free wifi in the room - so many hotels I've stayed in recently charge for the wifi. I would definitely stay here again, the next time I am in Pittsburgh.

As a PITT Parent, I was once again in town to see my son. This Courtyard by Marriott is by far my favorite hotel to stay when I am in Oakland, Shadyside, or anywhere else near Pittsburgh. The place has everything; clean comfortable rooms, friendly attentive staff and what you come to expect in a good hotel. It has been some time since I wrote a review of this Courtyard by Marriott, but It seems to get better and better. NEW addition is the bar. Yes, they now have a liquor license, it is nice to get a drink when you want one. Parking Valet's were quick to get your car for you. Parking here is pricey but no worse than any other good hotel in Pittsburgh. Just a fact of life when in town. I will always stay at this Courtyard by Marriott when I come to Pittsburgh, you have my business for life. Thank-you.

My son and I were visiting CMU so he could decide as a recently admitted student, if this is the right college for him. This stressful decision called for a great nights sleep and this hotel delivered! The staff was friendly, the hotel is clean and the beds were super comfortable. The rooms darkening curtains were perfect and there was no noise making it a very restful night. There is a Starbuck's adjacent to the hotel and a Panera Bread down the block which we love. The hotel is in a quiet area that is very close to a cute shopping street in the Shadyside area, as well as close to CMU and to the downtown area as well. This worked perfect for our needs. If my son decides on CMU we will stay here again for sure:)

From the beginning i knew this would be good - friendly valet and desk staff. The decor is bright and sooo clean. The room even smelled fresh, none of that musty old hotel smell here. The accessible accommodations made my stay wonderful and worry free: Even a high vanity in the bathroom with room for everything! The staff is friendly, helpful and efficient, and the restaurant waiter even remembered my seat preferences from one day to the next. I will visit Pittsburgh several times in the next few months, and will be delighted with another visit at the Courtyard Shadyside.
