We stayed in this hotel in connection with a wedding. It was precisely what you would expect from a Courtyard by Marriott - clean, friendly and wow does a little breakfast sandwich and an OJ cost a lot. I also hate when they put those $2.50 waters in your room. But that's a pet peeve.
Pillows were lumpy, but bed was good. Big windows, ours overlooked a courtyard. I had a lot of work to do and the FREE Wifi was VERY fast - I was able to log into my work's system with very little delay. Also like the desk setup.
The location was perfect for what we were doing. Walked to Pirates game, walked to the wedding reception at the Heinz History Museum, walked to dinner/bars. Not bad at all.
I do question the hotel's decision to only have 2 valets working on a day where 2 sets of wedding guests in the hotel were trying to get their cars. Seems ... like a poor choice.
Lastly, I was very confused by the front desk overall. I asked a woman about a place to get my nails done nearby and she was clueless. Looked it up on Yelp (which I had already done). Thanks. And then when asking a guy about a restaurant he told me the name/address and we asked whether we should make reservations. He said yes and then handed me his master list and pointed "there's the phone number." Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I've never had a hotel make ME call the place to make a reservation. I didn't mind, it was just very strange. At a nice hotel they usually fall over themselves to do it for you! Odd.
But overall, yeah this would work for a business trip easy.
