We chose this hotel because we wanted to be able to walk to Carnegie Mellon because a car is inconvenient in the city. The hotel does actually offer a shuttle for the Oakland area but we chose to walk because it was nice out. We paid more for this hotel than we usually do, but it was definitely a better...

We had a great experience. We arrived early and went in to see if we could at least park our car while we looked around Pittsburgh. They were able to check us into our room three hours early and gave us a shuttle ride to and from the museum. The staff was really nice. Having a Panera in the building...

Thanks for staying with us. It's great to hear you enjoyed your trip to town. We're happy to provide a local shuttle service to many local attractions. It is definitely easier than trying to navigate in an unfamiliar area! I apologize for the bathroom tile. I will have our maintenance team inspect all rooms for tile issues so they aren't...

We booked a room here last minute. We chose the Quality Inn because it was relatively close to where we needed to be and it was about as cheap as you could get in the city without risking cleanliness. We checked in very late and had no issues. The room was quiet and we slept great.. The toilet clogged in...

We visited Pittsburgh for a concert at the Petersen Center and this hotel is walking distance (about 15 minutes), so the location was perfect. The staff was friendly and check in / out was quick. Our room was clean but the place is obviously dated. There were no frills, but was clean and served our purposes. I like that Panera...

My son had an admissions tour at Carnegie Mellon University in early March and we stayed here the night before his tour. After a long drive from just outside of Washington, DC, it was nice that the hotel wasn't too far from the interstate and very close to the University. The hotel is showing its age, but for a quick...

People in the front desk are usually nice. Service is good. It is close to the UPMC and CMU. It is not top quality, but it is OK. It is an old hotel, with dated interior. There is Panera bread next to the hotel. However, there is no other place if you want to buy/eat anything else.

I've always found this hotel to be very nice. The staff especially the front desk was great and very helpful. The Panera connected to it make it convenient for breakfast and lunch. Also walking distance to many other places to eat or shop.

I have stayed three times at the Quality Inn, and every time it just gets to be worst. The reason for staying at Quality Inn because of it's proximity to Pitt, where I travel once a month. The beds are horrible, the noise from the ac/heater is crazy, the walls are paper thin, so God forbid that you have neighbors...

I have been staying at this hotel since January 2017 trying to get established in the Pittsburgh area. I have complained about someone smoking on the 7th floor and the GM and staff turns a blind eye.

Thank you for submitting your comments. Although I have previously spoken with you in person, I wanted to respond to you here, as well. I will admit that although all guest rooms are 100% non-smoking inside the rooms, we did allow smoking on the room balconies. Because of the recent problems you encountered (and so all guests can have a...
