          Great room, great service. Tiny but useful gym. Very cheerful staff. The restaurant seemed okay but a bit overpriced, so I didn't try it.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          The hotel was located in the middle of the Pitt campus and was surrounded by great architecture and walkable neighbourhoods

          The exercise room was too small and had sparse equipment. The hotel charged $20/night parking and $15/night for a roll-away cot neither cost was explained when I first called the hotel to ask about the room.

        • Group of friends
          7.0

          It is quite close to cmu, within easy walking distance. The staff were very friendly, rooms were clean, great bathrooms compared to other hotels of similar price. Parking was cheap compared to other nearby options.

          Couldn't get internet to work (wired or wireless). The construction outside the hotel was quite loud, starting around 4:30 am. And the climate control system felt over-sized for the room... When it was on, it was blasting frigid air directly onto bed, and when off the room had to heat way up to uncomfortable levels for it to come on again. Not a nice sleep.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          The location is very convenient for visits to university campuses.

          The fitness room was really too small, more people wanted to use than machines and room available.

        • Single
          8.4

          The room was clean, comfortable. The hotel is very close to the university, which was very convenient.

          The staff at the front desk was absent frequently and when they were present at the desk not very friendly but always looked busy, elevators were shut down for maintenance during the day.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Excellent location for college visits.Free shuttle was a terrific bonus.

          Need to have free wireless in the rooms.

        • Older travelers
          4.6

          We have a lot of good memories of how this hotel was when we stayed in the past.

        • Single
          7.8

          The room was very comfortable and clean. The hotel is in a good location for the University.

          The restaurant menu was limited and there were very few amenities in walking distance from the hotel. There was also no fridge in the room.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          The staff was absolutely delightfull. They were extremely helpful and accomodating
