We reserved the room for my husband's cancer surgery at UPMC. His surgery was rescheduled a week before the surgery date, and I wasn't able to amend the reservation. I knew it was non-refundable, but I thought it would be fair to change the reservation to a different night.
The ladies working Saturday night (10/8) are fabulous. As well as the manager that was on Saturday night and Sunday morning. It is obvious that customer service is a big deal here. what we did not like was the horrible hockey team of kids. It was outrageous how these parents let their children literally run around like maniacs. The hotel did their best to control it but it was the parents that were on all of the floors drinking in the hallways that should've been in control of their own children.
Hotel staff was very helpful Small room and bathroom. Not much room to move around in either. Sheet didn't fit on the bed it was way too small. It came off both nights I stayed. Every time we went to the pool there were no clean towels
All of the staff (especially at check-in) were incredibly friendly and helpful! Seriously, they give you a warm, delicious, chocolate chip cookie when you check in. Breakfast was pricey.
Staff was friendly and helpful A creepy man was at the pool and touched my daughter's face. He states he lived at the hotel. He was very inappropriate and my family felt very uncomfortable at the pool.
Room was clean, tv was a nice size, bed and pillows were comfortable, bathroom was clean. Overall nice place to stay, would stay again
Reasonably good breakfast. Room heater was not sufficiently powerful. Temperature kept on dropping through the night. By morning, there was difference of as much as 4 degrees between room temperature and set temperature.
The room was clean and comfortable. A nice place!
clean and the staff were all friendly and helpful difficult to find
The location was very convenient. It was an easy 5 minute drive to the ballpark. The shuttle service to the downtown area was great. This is a good location to stay when going to a ballgame in Pittsburgh.
Comfortable beds, quiet location, good overall selection at breakfast. Location was not ideal while the highway nearby is under construction - lots of traffic on the side streets.
The shuttle around town was great.
The staff is very friendly! The room was clean and comfortable breakfast is okay, way too much plastic
Easy access, quick check-in, and clean room. The breakfast buffet was pretty standard, which means not very good.
The hotel was very clean with a good breakfast Was in town for the Steelers game. Public transit and access in Pittsburgh (in general) is a big pain and the location of the hotel doesn't help even though it is relatively close to downtown. The shuttle never ran on time and therefor made other arrangements for my airport run as I was worried I would be late.
It's a Holiday Inn Express. The facility was clean, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the location near the ballpark was great. Now that that's out of the way, what you want to know is what makes this place better than the rest. You learn a lot about a hotel when the staff is under duress. How do they perform? What is their temperament, their professionalism. I saw it on 8/3/15. Housekeeping was short staffed and the linens came back late from the cleaners. There was a line of impatient people waiting to check in at 6:00pm and their were no rooms that were ready. All the staff could do was apologize and give away upgrades. But through it all, the staff remained polite, positive and helpful. The manager was called and he came and addressed the line of impatient people and explained what was happening. You know what he was doing before he came over? He was folding towels and helping out where he could. This is the place you want to stay. They will do whatever it takes to make your stay comfortable even when they are having one of the worst days possible. Nothing
The people was very nice. The shuttle drivers were great. I loved this place. Will stay again. The food was lil cold. But still good
Location Not very clean.
We loved the daily shuttle ride so that we did not have to drive into the city. This saved us money for parking and headaches from the terrible traffic! It is very convenient on the hour and they will pick you up within 45 minutes of your call. The beds are cozy and the breakfast was good.
It was a nice room overall and a great value for the price. The sofa bed in the room was broken and uncomfortable
Clean, continental breakfast, pool, nice bathroom, comfy beds nice people Nothing
Good room Layout, amenities Free breakfast, good food selection Relatively quiet facility
I had reserved a king bed room but they degraded the room to quin bed due to malfunction of the heater, WITHOUT any compensation!!! In summary, We paid for the king bed and got the quin size bed.
The staff was friendly and the shuttle service was great! I reserved a room with two beds. When I checked in all they had to give me was a handicapped room with a single bed. My sister and I had to sleep in the one bed for the first night until they could get another room to move us to for the second night. We receive no compensation for being put in the wrong room, having to switch rooms, etc.
I recommend this hotel if you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel away from downtown Pittsburgh with easy acess to the Casino, Heinz Field and PNC park. The hotel is clean, the decor looks fresh and updated and there's plenty of free parking. Breakfast was included in the price of the room. It was the fix-it-yourself type that I really enjoy when I am only staying 1-2 nights. The breakfast included waffles, ham (similar to canadian bacon), danish, muffins, bagels, toast, cheese omelets, oatmeal, assorted fruits, boiled eggs and yogurts. Beverages included orange, cranberry and apple juices, coffee, hot chocolate and hot tea. The room looked exactly as it was advertised which was great. The staff was very pleasant and eager to provide any assistance. I would definitely stay at this hotel again the next time we are in town for a short visit. N/A
My boyfriend and I were visiting Pittsburgh for our 8 year anniversary. The room was neat and clean and was very comfortable. I liked the foot stools with the couch and the bed was comfortable to sleep on. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I forgot hairspray and they offered me a sample size as a replacement! I LOVED the 24 hour free coffee and tea bar. Not to mention the adorable cups and sleeves that were provided! Love the mustaches. Took advantage of this every day/night. The breakfast was wonderful too. The scrambled eggs were a little flavorless, but the egg omelets they had one day were delicious. Great variety and always stocked and seemed fresh. The pool was nice, but could get crowded. Seemed like they needed more lounge chairs. I also would prefer an indoor pool, but I got some sun, which was nice. My favorite part was location because it was a 10 minute drive to downtown, 20 minutes from the zoo, and 10 minutes from Robinson, where we had dinner one night. A quick note that the fridge and microwave are a nice touch even though we did not use them. We also didn't use the shuttle but always saw it at the doors, so it seemed to run all day. Overall it was a pleasant experience and we will stay again. I did not like how thin the walls were. We could hear the TV of the person in the room next to us. There also was a "bachelorette party" happening across the hall and they were up several times during our first night's stay. They woke us up at 12am, 2 am, 5 am, and so on. I know this isn't the hotel's fault, but the thin walls and doors made it easy to hear everything in the hallway and other rooms next to us. I also didn't like that parking was somewhat limited when we got back in the late evening. Other than that, this was a great hotel and we will return!
Cleanliness of the room; quick check in; very comfortable beds
Breakfast was great, and I really appreciated the hotel shuttle service. It made my weekend so much easier logistically.
Loved the shuttle to the Pirates game! What a luxury for us. Breakfast was great. Clean, friendly. When we booked it, we thought a double was two beds. Had to sleep in a bed with my little son and the snoring drove him crazy!
My husband and I stayed at the hotel. It was nice and clean and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our stay was very enjoyable. The hotel was supposed to have a continental breakfast, but during our stay there was not a continental breakfast. So do not count on a continental breakfast for the weekend.
the first room was too dirty...we had to get another room it was also dirty...even the elevator carpet...ripped...dirty...toilet you had to flush twice for paper to go down...ice maker was so dirty we decided not to use the ice...the continental breakfast...what a joke!!!
Location mailnly The person who attended to me was rude , unprofessional , improperly dressed . However the other staff was corteous and the person who troubleshooted an issue that I had was courteous and professional. That said I would not rate the hotel badly for one bad egg. I hope he learns the professionalism that applies to run an institution in the service industry. The management appears to be new and there appear to be a few teething problems. The hairdryer in my room was burnt out and the showerhead had issues. That said all in all it was an ok experience but definitely not hotel satndards more motel standards. Potential to pick up though.
There were no other people booked in the rooms around us, so it was incredibly quiet. The price could've been lower. Also, it was advertised as having balconies, but there was a sliding glass door with a railing immediately outside of it. No balcony.
Staff was great! Jenelle, Jay, Will, Ashley & Eve were super stars! Jay was very knowledgable of the area & helped me find food at 1:00am. Also, staff helped me get a ride back to hotel after my concert was over since original cab said he was done for the night @ 10:30pm.
Our GPS took us right to the hotel. Easily accessible. The hotel was not worth the money. The bathroom had mildew in tub and on the walls, the room itself was not very clean and the continental breakfast was sub standard. The only thing that the hotel had going was the outdoor pool.
Staff was outstanding... very accommodating Facility was never great and is a little run down now. Big gash in wall by elebation or my floor
Price was reasonable. I felt the room could have been cleaner. Saw lots of cobwebs and wires hanging out.
very helpfull staffs.. nice breakfast if you will use GPS to find hotel there is 2 Holiday drive so use zipcode..
The bed was excellent ; Kuerig coffee machine in the room Breakfast was not included
