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...

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 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...

Arrival could not have been easier. Check-in was quick and friendly. The room was not overly spacious, but we were just there one night. Parking is NOT included and the spots are narrow underneath the hotel. There is additional parking across the street, but we have a tall vehicle and that garage only allows 6.1 feet of clearance. We were...

My son and I stayed overnight for while visiting the University on April 6, 2017. The women at the front desk was pleasant and friendly. She even gave me a map to navigate my way around the city. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We'll definitely be staying here again.

This is a completely adequate place but don't let all the over zealous reviews fool you: this is a place that's best feature is it's proximity to the university. On the upside, there's a restaurant and parking. Beds are comfortable. It's clean-ish (there were cornflakes on the floor before we arrived and they were there when we left.) We got...
