Right next door to the University of Pittsburgh, this is a straight forward business chain hotel. Will suit your needs. Was clean and perfectly fine while visiting the university. Front desk staff were helpful and everything was as expected.

We stayed 2 nights at this "ok" hotel in Oakland. The location is good to the hospitals and University of Pittsburgh and most of the neighborhood needs are walkable. The parking is close and there is a fee. We stayed here when It was a Holiday Inn over a year or two ago and nothing has changed. Same average rooms...

The hotel is just next to University of pittsburg and CMU. The location is very good if you are visiting the place. They run the shuttle bus and the driver was very friendly and nice. The room was old and dated but my expectation was low. The internet was for free but not really fast.

This hotel is an excellent location - within easy walking distance of the Pitt campus. Our package included free parking, which was an added bonus. We strolled around campus during the day and then took the hotel shuttle to the basketball game. The desk clerks were very friendly, and the rooms were so comfortable. My only disappointment was seeing that...

Check in was quick, front staff was very pleasant. We arrived for a basketball game, prefect location for that. The shuttle was able to literally drop us off curbside. (The Petersen center was .5 miles away). The hotel was sold out so the lobby was noisy and crowded most of the evening. Parking an suv was challenging (basketballs the overflow...

I have stayed at this property many times and have generally had a very positive experience. Great location for the universities and the restaurant is actually good.
