We just returned home from a 2 night stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Pittsburgh University Place. It's the second time we have stayed at this hotel and we just love it! Our daughter goes to Pitt and it's super convenient to be only a few blocks walking distance from her on campus housing. Our room was spacious and everything...

Overall my stay was fine, but when I got my car back from the valet, I discovered my phone was missing. I called the hotel back when I realized this, but they offered no help or solutions. Thankfully I found a Target and bought a new one before my phone died (I was traveling on business and needed my phone...

I'm a group leader for an educational travel company. I stay at this hotel six days at a stretch as often as three times a year. Every visit has met or exceeded my expectations. Well-staffed, clean, comfortable, delicious food. I can't say enough about the kind and efficient staff. My home away from home.

Stayed for two nights on business. The building was really convenient to Pitt and CMU, super-clean and lovely. Real standout to me was the staff: just above and beyond good. Easy in/out, even on a big game day when they were busy. Valet was quick and the food was good. Definitely would recommend this hotel.

My son and I stayed here in July during his orientation at the University of Pittsburgh. The staff was very friendly and attentive, providing lots of helpful information on good restaurants, running routes, etc. Our room was clean and bright and insulated from the noise of the busy street below us. We will definitely stay there again!

The rooms, etc. inside the hotel are very nice, but from street level, if you have wheels of any sort, you need to go down a lift to go up an elevator to get to the lobby. There is valet parking available to avoid this problem if you want to pay the $18 per day. Oh, and be careful -...
