Nice new clean hotel. Rooms are large and comfortable. During my first stay--and my first visit to Pittsburgh--I was unsure about the location. Carson St is a bit rough around the edges; I later learned that it was an historic presevation district and one of the most busy areas of Pittsburgh, filled with restaurants, shops, traffic and people! (The hotel is not directly on Carson St so there was no traffic noise in our room.) All our dinners that stay were within walking distance of the hotel and soon the area felt more comfortable and friendly!
The location is as close to downtown as you can get without actually being in downtown. We did not have that much need to be in downtown anyway, it turned out.
We had good maps of the city, so finding our way around was not too difficult although we did take a few unexpected "tours" here and there!
During our second stay we even got a good deal on a room with a Jacuzzi (on-line) and that was most enjoyable!
The breakfast is good (a lot of carb full selections though; we started eating a lot of the hard cooked eggs and oranges instead). The in-room coffee maker is convenient but the coffee is bad...just go downstairs and bring some up to the room, or use some you bought at a Warehouse District shop, like we did! Staff is courteous and professional. Our only hotel to stay in while in Pittsburgh!
