Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center
Ranked #30 of 73 Hotels in Pittsburgh
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I have had the experience of staying at the Wyndham Hotel in Pittsburgh on two occasions. The first was the weekend it changed from a Holiday Inn to the Wyndham, and my son's wedding rehearsal dinner was scheduled for one of the smaller ballrooms. We were a little worried that the change of management would affect the quality of service there, but we worried for no reason. The dinner was delightful, served family style, and was delicious. We also had ordered a hospitality suite which was huge and had many delicious finger foods and drinks. Many relatives and friends chose to stay here, and we heard no complaints.
My second experience at the Wyndham was a year later when my husband was a patient at Presbyterian Hospital. The shuttle took me back and forth, so I left my automobile parked for the duration of my stay. The parking fee was a little pricy, but that is what happens in the middle of Oakland. The garage was lighted and accessible from the hotel itself. The bar and restaurant had limited hours, but the hotel was clean, the employees were efficient and friendly, and I definitely would recommend this hotel to anyone who had business at the universities or health facilities in Oakland.

Room Tip: The highest floor has a "concierge area" that was quiet and comfortable.

Stayed at the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center while attending a concert at the Soldiers and Sailors Museum. Lovely hotel, recently renovated and spotlessly clean. We had a twin Queen room and it was a generous size with luxury bedding and also a small seating area. The bathroom was ample size, only complaint was that the shower was too forceful and difficult to adjust.

Ate dinner in the hotel restaurant, Bridges, the food was average and the service was very slow. There are many others alternatives in the area.

The hotel is located within walking distance of the beautiful churches and architectural treasures of the downtown Pittsburgh area. The University of Pittsburgh is just a couple of blocks away from the hotel and that campus itself is a treasure. There are many small restaurants within walking distance of the hotel and the menus looked interesting and reasonable. We're already looking forward to returning and eating at Union Grill.

Would definitely stay at the WPUC again.

Looked kind of average upon check in. Service was not up to par. Too many check ins and not enough help at desk. They were not able to answer phones when calling down from room. The pillow selection, which is advertised on their cable station is not at all available. I asked for extra firm pillows... They could not produce any. Sent a fruit basked and two free breakfast. Nice gesture, but I tried to explain that they should not offer pillow selections if they do not have. People tried, but very overwhelmed. Would stay there if need be for business or special occassions. Centrally located.

Nice hotel. Clean, simple. Check in/out is a bit slow. Food quality is variable but acceptable. Great location for work on Pitt's campus.
