The staff there goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is excellent. The hotel is well-kept and in a very convenient location. The staff gets an A+ for customer service. The restaurant there is quite nice as well especially if you get in late and still want to grab something to eat.

Nice room layout and amenities. Love the bedside lamps with electric outlets at the base- very convenient. Roomy bathroom, although the toilet paper is a bit of a reach. Tilework showing some wear and tear and no exhaust fan or light over the bath but the large counter space was more important and they had that. Only disposable cups were... More

I was in town for business at the University of Pittsburgh. The hotel was clean, very recently updated, and well run. It was an easy walk to the university, restaurants, even parks and museums. (However, there is also a complimentary shuttle that leaves every hour, for those not inclined or able to walk.)

Nice hotel. Except for a young blonde lady who had just started, most of the front desk staff are reserved and not particularly welcoming. The hotel is close (by car) to the Cathedral of learning and the University of Pittsburgh. The rooms are nice, although the beds are a little hard and there's not a hand held shower head. They...

Here for one night for business. Friendly check-in, great comfortable room. Multiple dining locations within walking distance. I walked to a bar that had small pitchers on sale and food 1/2 priced after 9pm. Overall multiple options to eat. If you do not want to walk, they have a restaurant bar in the hotel. The bar beverages were reasonably priced,... More

Friendly and welcoming staff. Start your day in the breakfast room with a warm greeting and conversation with Diane & Rocelle. They are always willing to offer suggestions to get the most out of the city during your stay. They are attentive and quick to get you out the door and on with your day.

I was in Pittsburgh for a college visit and stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn. The hotel itself is starting to show its age but the staff more than made up for it. The housekeeping staff did a great job in cleaning the room and Diane in the restaurant was very friendly and welcoming.

Great location as it is within a few blocks to the University of Pittsburgh. The staff was very friendly and helpful! The shuttle driver, Byrd, was excellent also even though he tried hard not to rub it in to a Philly guy how the Penquins won the Stanley Cup the night before. Lol.
