If I could rate it zero stars, I would. It is sad. I stayed at this hotel 2 years ago and it was a decent hotel, the reason I re-booked. But upon arrival this time, it went downhill very, very fast. First of all, they advertise "Club Room" access rooms on their website and they do not even have the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We booked a room here because it was around the corner from the spot where Pitt's admitted student program would be held. We were checking out Pitt during February to get a sense of the cold since we are from southern CA. It turns out the weather was a nice and pleasant as the hotel. The room was clean and...

We select the Wyndham because the dinner price was similar to others, but they were flexible if the count increased. We worked with Erin Sharpe and were not disappointed. They were great. The food (buffet) was exceptional-- was NOT made ahead of time. Better than a plated dinner! Provided one-off food to someone who needed gluten free for no charge....

Kathryn was our server at the Balko/Buchanan Wedding continental breakfast on Sunday morning 4/23/17. She went out of her way to make certain that we were well taken care of...was very attentive to details (unripe bananas/ "to go" coffees, etc.) and did an especially good job of meeting our every need. She is to be commended.

I should have known when the man who checked me in late at night was clearly high as a kite that my stay was not going to be anything special. His eyes were bloodshot and he reaked of marijuana. He barely spoke to me, rattled off a few words, and sent me on my way. He didn't offer me the...

I spoke to the front office about the smell. It was worst near the elevator and halls near the elevator but occasionally made it to my room. It smelled like mold. Strongly. I guess they were doing some work on the building and the person at the front desk thought it might be that. The restaurant was okay, but it...

We came to town for a Pirates game and decided to stay for 2 nights. We also spent one day at the zoo. Both the game and zoo were easy to get to due to the location of the hotel. Service was great. Food was excellent and there were many things within walking distance such as the museum of natural...

I had to stay a night here to attend a conference at the university which was held in this hotel. I paid a bit more than what I could find in the nearby area just for the convenience of staying at the same place where the conference is. Everything else is fine with the hotel including room size, cleanliness etc....

When I write reviews I try to point out pros and cons to help travelers make an informed decision. Here's the GOOD: This hotel is very nice. Classy lobby and an onsite restaurant which is always a plus. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The lobby, elevators, hallways and rooms were all very clean and the beds were...
