A very nice hotel with clean and updated amenities. The in-room kitchenette was spotless and made my stay very comfortable. Staff were welcoming, too. The AM breakfast was also a great way to start the day. And, the location was perfect for attending a workshop at UPitt. Would stay here again!

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The location couldn’t be better but some of the service is a little lacking. It’s on a very busy street but at least there are lots of bus lines. Sometimes I smelled weed or burning rubber near the elevators, my shower clogged every time I stayed in for more than ten minutes. It was very expensive but overall worth what I paid just wish it was cleaner around the building as in it.
