      Terrific

      Loved this hotel. Great little kitchenette in the room, wonderful views. It's also really close to the University of Pittsburg, so there were great restaurants and things to do close by.

      Although we paid for the premium wifi, there were glitches and couldn’t watch Netflix. Luckily, we were refunded the fee. Breakfast was okay. Liked the convenience of being downtown and so close so many eateries.

      This is a standard Residence Inn with the normal amenities. One comment is about parking: There is not nearly enough parking for the hotel size. Paying for parking does NOT reserve you a space. If you return to park and there is no parking, they will reimburse your charge. There is other (less costly) parking nearby, but paying a premium for parking at the hotel does not mean there will be a space in the hotel garage when you return.

      Very clean, very modern

      Everything was very clean and modern. Everything smelled nice from lobby to hallway to room, and I felt very comfortable for my two night stay. Everything worked and the entire stay and amenities were as advertised.

      Parking was not included. Cost me 20 dollars for one night. Parking should be included. I have never stayed at any hotel that charged you extra for parking. Everything else was fine.

      Sweet Suites

      Our check-in was an absolute delight thanks to the chipper lady working at the front desk. She was super polite and very helpful - got us in promptly, too. Room was very nice - everything was in order, tidy, and overall quite pleasant. The rooms have everything you need - especially if you’re staying for a few days/weeks. People near and above us were pretty noisy, but we can’t fault the hotel for that. We were also a little disappointed to be facing a wall…on the second floor. Seemed to be pretty full during our overnight stay. Definitely a top choice for comfortable suites at a decent price. (The complimentary breakfast was also pretty decent!)

      The staff was professional,helpful,and understanding. The breakfast was perfect, the entire staff was incredible. The main reason for choosing this hotel was because of the pool and cheptickets claimed it was open when it wasn't.
