We stayed at the hotel as it is close to the University of Pittsburgh. The valet parking was an additional $18 per day. A room with 2 queen beds was $269 USD plus taxes of about $37. My problems with the hotel were: 1. Room was noisy at night as the window overlooked Forbes. Next time I would try a...

The staff at this hotel were simply amazing. From the people at the front desk, to the catering and room reservation people, to the servers and housekeepers - everyone went out of their way to accommodate our group and it made for a great stay. The beds were also excellent and provided a great night's sleep. Food quality was top...

Basic hotel near the university and hospital. Staff are welcoming. Not many amenities. Room service available is after 5pm. Rooms are somewhat small and noisy. Breakfast buffet was the only option for breakfast - waitresses were wonderful and made sure you had everything you needed. If you need a room near the university or hospital, this hotel is convenient but...

The hotel is very well placed close to a lot of good attractions especially food and drinking. The valet is top notch and there is always someone ready to take your car to a safe location that is not accessible to the public or even other guests. The lobby had two entrances one from the valet and the other from...

Reviewed 21 October 2016

The hotel accommodations were acceptable however there is no free breakfast amenity included, not even a muffin. Combine the added cost of breakfast with the $18 a day parking fee, this is not a good value stay. I'm a Diamond member and even with that status I received no added value.

My overall experience was quite pleasant. While the entrance to the valet parking was a bit awkward (the uphill angle)the staff were very efficient. I booked a suite and was very pleased with the size and cleanliness of the rooms. I had dinner out, but enjoyed the made to order breakfast. I'd definitely stay again when in the area.

Hotel is right by lower campus so it's great if you're visiting the school. Lots of restaurants (both sit down and quick eats) right on the same street. The room was nice and clean, so that plus its proximity to campus makes it a win in my book. Just a note, parking and breakfast are not included so adjust your...

Good location~ staff was friendly. Check in easy. Room was fine. Valet only parking for $18 per night which I guess is common in cities. No problems at all. The a/c was rather noisy and wasn't real thrilled with the pillows. Coffee was good in the lobby.
