The hotel was pretty nice. It was difficult to find the registration at first because of the garage and different floor levels. Our room was nice and had everything you’d need. We got put next to a maintenance/storage room on the 7th floor and the workers seemed to slam the door and were incredibly loud. Overall, a good experience.

Great Hotel!

The setup is different than any other hotel I've visited, and it took a bit to navigate it, but the staff was super helpful. The room was completely updated and very clean. The shower was heaven! The bag of complimentary microwave popcorn in the kitchen was a nice touch as well! The breakfast was a typical hotel breakfast, nothing fancy but everything you need. I had multiple questions about parking, disposing of a large box from a TV, area amenities, etc. and every question and task was taken care of promptly and well. I'm planning on staying in the area again in the future and plan to stay here. The only issue I had was that there was a high school team of some sort staying at the hotel and they were super loud (slamming doors, knocking on doors, yelling) starting around 8:30pm. I called the front desk and a security person came up, looked at a group of teenagers loudly mingling in the hallway right outside my room (I was watching), walked by, then spoke to one teenager standing by himself, said "try to keep it down", then left. I called down again as they got louder (same security guard, same handling of the situation) as the night went on and eventually had to go out and speak to them myself (after another guest yelled at them too), who were then quiet. Even with this, I would still highly recommend this hotel. The hotel can't always account for how loud a group will be and the front desk was prompt in sending the security person up more than once.

Nice hotel near the Phipps Conservancy

Pros: The hotel was very clean and quiet and the staff was helpful with instructions on using the parking garage and the hotel provided a hearty breakfast
Cons: Nothing needs improved
Location: Besides visiting Pittsburgh we were very interested in touring several Frank Lloyd Wright homes that were about an hour away
We liked the location because we were near our destination which was visiting the Phipps Conservancy and also close to downtown for our dinner at the Grand Concourse.

a good hotel with a perfect location.

Pros: The location was perfect, I had 2 family events to attend ,one in Wilkensburgh, the other was at a downtown hotel. I was 3.5 miles from downtown
Cons: The parking was a problem, or you could pay $15.00 a day to park in the hotel parking garage.
Location: The location was perfect, we went to the zoo, and the strip district and it was perfect for the family functions we attended.
The hotel is renovation, the lobby was moved to the upper level. When i walked threw the dusty floor to get on the eleavatorI was thinking,I am going to cancel this reservation and go to another hotel. Upstairs they were cleang things and getting things in place. The place was very nice, and the staff was very pleasant and .and very profesional.The rooms were clean and on the bed was a towel folded up to look like a swan, with a note from the house keeper saying welcome to the hotel and if I need anything to make the stay comfortable just let her know.From the time I checked in until the time I checked out i was satisfied with this hotel.
