Although the front staff is extremely welcoming, I found the search for this location difficult, even though I phoned ahead. The restaurant should be avoided with so many other excellent restaurants in the neighborhood. The staff is friendly.

Thank you for recently rating our hotel. I would like to apologize if you found the hotel difficult to find online as another Hilton Garden Inn has recently opened in Downtown Pittsburgh and may be confusing for some guests who are unfamiliar with Pittsburgh. We hope you allow us the opportunity to serve you again in the future.

Wife and 17 yr old son stayed thursday and friday nights to attend college tour and events at Pitt. We tend to like more room than less, and didn't want to be in a small room with two doubles next to each other. So we chose the King 1 bedroom "evolution" suite. I was told that this had a separate...

Location is excellent for anyone visiting UPMC. The shuttle service from the hotel to the hospital and back to the hotel was prompt, smooth and priceless. Everything else about the hotel was also top notch. I recommend it to anyone visiting Pittsburgh. A clear 5+ star experience.
