We were only there for a night and will never stay here again. Shower was covered in spray tanning lotion from the body building competition and wristbands from the event were still in the room. Was told at checkout that we should have reported it as soon as we noticed it... which was not until the morning right before checking out. Since we had just dropped off our bags and went out to get dinner the night we checked in.

Thank you for your feedback. I am so sorry that this incident happened to you, and would like the opportunity to make it right for you. I did respond earlier and included my email, which did not follow Expedia's writing guidelines. Contact us directly at the hotel, please. Thank you for your time.

Located just a few minutes from downtown. You do have to pay for parking but it’s a private lot right behind the hotel. My kids liked the pool.

We stayed all week in different rooms: 506, 420 & most recently 223 which was a special needs room. It was the very last room in the hotel; toilet had urine on seat; lighting was extremely dim in bathroom & a/c didn’t work. We requested service and the a/c unit was replaced but I swear there was no change in temperature. The housekeeping staff was amazing!! Very courteous and pleasant. Ms Betty at reception was very attentive and kind. Ms Donna in kitchen was as sweet as could be and even set oatmeal aside for my mom who was always late for breakfast. Paul at front desk was polite and respectful as we watched another guest become irate over a parking issue he had no control over. The amenities might have lacked somewhat but the staff was guest friendly. I hope we won’t need to be in Pittsburgh again for legal reasons but would stay at IHG hotels again due to customer service.

Room was nice and spacious however the front desk clerk was less than pleasant, I was informed upon arrival that is cost $22 per night to park you car in their lot which was not stated when booking the hotel. I would have definitely picked somewhere else. I then find out they charged my card $35 instead of the $22 mentioned. No mention of what the fee was for. Won’t be staying here again!

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that you were not aware of the parking charge until check in. We do have it posted on our website; the third party channels are supposed to as well. I will check in to why they do not have the parking fee showing. The 35.00 fee that you see is an incidental hold to ensure that the card given to us at check in is valid, and we can receive payment for charges to the room. Your parking fee usually comes out of the hold, and any money left on the hold is returned to your bank, then your account at check out. I apologize if that was not made clear at check in. Thank you for your time, and have a good day.

Gave us a room that was already occupied by someone else. That was very embarassing. So we told them to give us a room on bottom floor but it had a queen bed. Not 2 twins. Fridge didnt work .When I told the guy at the reception desk about walking in the occupied room his response was oh thats ok😐what kind of response was that? I will say the driver and shuttle service were excellent

I am so very sorry that this happened to you. It is never ok to give someone keys to a room already occupied. I will speak with the front desk agent about this. As to the room, I am thinking, from your description, that there was only ! bed in the room; it sounds like you booked for a two queen bed room. I do apologize for the issues that happened during your stay, and will make sure that these issues do not happen again. once again, I am so sorry for these issues, and hope you have a good day.
