There is a shuttle which stopped after 4:30 the day we were there. The pool is heated. The desk staff is helpful. We paid $30 extra for the breakfast and got 2 coupons for breakfast worth...

Great location to be close to U of Pittsburgh or Carnegie Mellon but I must say I was surprised when they told me that it would be $20 for parking. That said, they did allow us to keep our car there even after we checked out and we spent the day touring the area on foot without an extra charge....

The hotel is next to the University of Pittsburgh tower. Within 10 minutes, you can walk to a number of restaurants. The hotel also has a shuttle and the personel offered to drive me to the Carnegie Mellon University.

Great hotel, clean, indoor pool, parking for guests and in the middle of Oakland, clean and good value for the money . I've been there twice, and treated my daughter and her visiting friends to 2 nights there.

Reviewed 15 December 2016

Toilet ran all night until my husband finally shut off the water under the toilet. Two most important items while staying out of town, bathroom and bed. Robbed of sleep due to running toilet. No apology, only offered to comp the $20 parking fee. Should have offered to reduce cost of room. Disappointed. Won't return. Pricey for area.

The hotel is conveniently located and within walking distance to a lot of activities, My suggestion is that you use the underground parking.
