Good value for game weekend..

Posted 26-Oct-2016
Pros: The balcony! Like the fact we didn't have to run downstairs to have a cigarette and having panera right of the elevator made grabbing coffee easier!
Cons: The door latch on the glass door was very poorly installed on the balcony and there was no place to sit out there. I.e. No furniture..
Location: Decent location. Close to the stadium, only a short drive, everything was close and getting to the airport was easy also.

Good for its location.

This is an older hotel although they've recently done some upgrades to make it much better. The location is excellent - very close to restaurants and shops and attractions (Carnegie Museums, etc...) in Oakland. I've been staying here for almost a decade now and it's the best it's ever been.

Great location

Posted 10-Oct-2016
Pros: The staff
Cons: Bathrooms are dated
Location: Easy walk to campus and Right off the exit.
Rooms are dated and older stuff in rooms but can't beat the location for coming to visit Oakland and the University. Can walk up to campus. The staff are very friendly and welcoming.

Steelers win

Posted 04-Oct-2016
Pros: The staff was very friendly, the location close to Heinz field with easy transportation to and from great. The parking was free and Panera bread great
Cons: The place is very old and tired needs updating.
Location: Only came in to see the Steelers game and had no time to check out anything else in Pittsburgh, that will have to wait for our next trip.
The place had a nice comfortable bed and the Panera restraunt on site was a real plus. Overall it could use a total remodel but for the price and location it met our needs.

At Pitt for family weekend.

Posted 03-Oct-2016
Pros: Close to university and free parking.
Cons: Bathrooms could be redone.
Very conveniently located. Large rooms, pretty clean. Seemed newly carpeted and painted, but old and the bathrooms need to be redone. But close to everything and the parking is free!

A place to rest your head near U. of Pitt

Posted 03-Oct-2016
We did not spend much time in our room, but we had a good view of "Cathy" and there is a shuttle that goes to the university every hour. The hotel is located very close to the University (down 1 street, right on Forbes), so that's convenient. I think that the insulation is lacking, It would get cold quickly and then warm up as the A/C cycled on and off very frequently and was not whisper quiet.

Very convenient

Posted 03-Oct-2016
Pros: Free parking, Free shuttle bus, Convenient to Pitt, you can walk to campus.
Cons: The rooms could be updated and maintained better, outdated.
Location: University of Pittsburgh is the focal point of our stay.
This hotel is very convenient because it is close to Pitt, it offers free parking and a free shuttle bus as well. The cons are: No breakfast except to purchase one at Panera Bread. The rooms could use some TLC, crumbling cement falling onto the bathroom sink, carpets could use a good cleaning, the wall in my room appeared to have had a soda blow up on it so the stains were still there. But even given these cons, I still prefer to stay here due to the convenience and price.
