Upon arrival, I was told that the King bed room I reserved was no longer available due to some guests staying over their original reserved dates. While sitting near the lobby, looking for another hotel with a king bed availability, the front desk customer service agent came over and apologized for the mix up. She said she did, indeed, have a king bed room available. Fortunately, the final result was good, the room was excellent, comfortable and clean. The initial moments were disconceting, and disappointing.

Great stay, location is within walking distance of a few places. Staff was wonderful and nice. Restaurant inside the hotel made great drinks. Everyone made us feel welcome for the Steelers game. Rooms were quiet and beds were super comfy. Will come back.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room wasn’t clean (old food in the fridge, hats and medical supplies in one drawer), the safe was locked and couldn’t be opened, almost as if the last person just left and they immediately put us in the room. NO housekeeping service provided, even after requested, staff saying we weren’t on the list. NO vending or ice services, NO convenience shop for personal items or snacks. One restaurant on premise, no pool/spa. Surrounded by college campus. The best service came from valet staff who were great, but I would not recommend this hotel.
