2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Cannot beat this location if you are attending functions at Pitt, but the hotel is tired and drab, with dark halls. When I was there, two of the three elevators were out of service, which really slowed things down, and there was no apology, explanation or notification of delays. Staff seemed indifferent, not particularly friendly or helpful. Room was fine and relatively quiet, and internet was good. I have stayed here before when it was a Holiday Inn, and don't see any changes, except for the worse. When I checked out for an early flight and commented that I was disappointed that I couldn't grab a yogurt (I was on the executive floor, the desk clerk shrugged and said "oh they don't open til 7:30 on the weekend" (NOT noted on the sign that said it was open 6:30-10:30). No apology or suggestion for how to find some quick breakfast. This is what I mean by indifferent staff. Not awful, just not helpful or friendly.
