“Great location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

The hotel was clean, staff extremely helpful and friendly, close to everything we wanted to be close to and would stay there again when traveling to Pittsburgh. The food was also very good and the lobby bar and beer selection was amazing. A bit pricey for beer but considering it was a hotel lobby bar - I guess it is to be expected. Nice time in a great City....

Room Tip: We had a great room at the end of the hall on the 4th floor....quiet and clean - very restful.

First -- This hotel is at a great location, and it is very clean and well-kept. It is a nice hotel overall. We did have a problem with our door handle coming off when trying to leave the room, but what we really found ridiculous was the fact that parking was $20 per night. We were not aware of this when we booked, but found out when we checked in. In addition, the parking spaces available for guests was rather limited. There was a small lot next to the hotel, along with a VERY small garage space on that side. Across from the hotel, there were some guest parking spots in the UPMC garage. For most of our trip, the lot and garage right next to the hotel were closed. We were almost unable to find parking on a few occasions, even though we were being charged $20 per night for it. We thought that was just ridiculous.

The hotel was quite expensive, and did not offer anything complimentary. We had a rather expensive breakfast buffet one morning, and on another, I tried to grab a cup of coffee near the lobby. Even the coffee was not free -- it was $2.00 per cup. I just figured for the price of the hotel and parking, that they could cater to their guests a little more.

Thank you for taking the time to post such a thoughtful review about your recent stay with us. Parking is definitely a premium in this area pushing all hotels to charge for the privilege. I am sorry it caused you such frustration. Again, your feedback is much appreciated.
