Travel Blogs from Pittsburgh
As part of my time here at Carnegie Mellon, I have been given the amazing opportunity to travel to Doha, Qatar over Spring Break to tour our Middle Eastern campus. The program is called IMPAQT (Initiating Meaningful Pittsburgh and Qatar Ties) and our goal is not only to foster relationships between the two campuses, but also promote a more hefty exchange program for semester or year-long study.
... was our last preparation meeting, but our first meeting of our actual trip - if that makes any sense at all.
Some family came to this last meeting to meet the team and to hear the itinerary. This could not happen if it was not for the support of many who encourage and contribute to those going and we expressed our thanks to them for their help.
For this trip, we have amassed ...
I'm really not sure how I ended up in Pittsburgh....there was nothing in particular that led me to choose to visit the city and it was colder than I ever imagined possible but I actually really enjoyed the place.
My host there was a little on the odd side but harmless enough, CouchSurfing can attract the quirkier side of humanity at times! He was great at giving me advice for exploring the city and ...
... his staff not knowing the generic drug names of medications which they used. There were no further 'codes' during the day so I just got to discuss the teams utilisation with the staff. In the evening I walked around the city seeing the University's Cathedral of Learning and Schenley Park as the weather was really nice. I also walked past the Phipps botanical gardens and the Natural history museum which I ...
... Now I have to win a HUGE amount of money (or marry a rich guy) and buy it to live there... Time to work towards this new goal... Too bad I've not noticed anybody around me yet that might be a good candidate but I'm staying alert! :-) Both Lenny and myself have a difficult time leaving the house behind us, we keep looking back, lingering a bit longer. "A thing of beauty is a joy forever" often pops in my head today... Very true that is... Our lodging is about 25mins away ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Inn Conference Center Pittsburgh
Friendly staff.... Needs some maintenance
Stayed here for a wedding. Staff was awesome. Rooms were kind of dark. Stayed on the bottom floor so you could walk right out onto the parking lot. My door did not close properly. All in all it was fine for a short stay. Breakfast was good :)
Hotel not just for Teamsters
This hotel used to belong to Leona Helmsley (Harley Hotel). Although old (the hotel that is), the rooms are large, ceilings high, and marble topped surfaces still remain on room furnishings. My wife and I stay there frequently when visiting family in Penn Hills. Front desk staff are always courteous (especially Amy) and bartenders are friendly and make fine cocktails! The indoor swimming pool is the largest around and always very clean. Even in the middle of winter, atmosphere and water are warm. Breakfast is included with your room and provides for a full selection of morning consumables. I would recommend this hotel to everyone even if you are not a Teamster!
Stayed here for 2 nights while on vacation in July 2006. We chose this property based on its proximity to Kennywood. This is an older property--once upon a time, it used to be a Ramada Inn (or so the emergency exit placard and guest services binder told me). Check-in and check-out were fast, efficient, and courteous. The room was clean and comfortable, with a mattress I actually enjoyed sleeping on (a rareity for hotel mattresses). There was a bizarre condition in the room in which the cold water pressure was very very low--this created a problem in that you could only flush the toilet once every 20 minutes(!), and there was really no "cold shower" option, though enough cold water was available to get a comfortable shower temperature. Apparently, church groups rent out some of the conference rooms for Sunday services--this was evidenced by the huge lines and swarms of people at the better-than-most continental breakfast. Hotel staff did an outstanding job keeping on top of everything, keeping everything well-stocked and clean despite the huge influx of people at around 9:30. Monday AM, things were much quieter! Didn't get to enjoy the pool, unfortunately. I will consider staying here again, but may also stay at other properties in nearby Monroeville to see if I like them better during my "once-every-5-years-or-so" trips to the Piitsburgh area.
Better than London, ontario Canada
My girlfriend and I stayed here on a Saturday night in June. I think there were two weddings going on, but we didn't hear a peep.
I had a bad experience with booking at a comfort inn in London Ont, back in 2000, so I was reluctant, but this place was all right.
The price was reasonable.
Good free breakfast in the morning too.
Quite a good deal
My boyfriend & I stayed at this hotel while I showed off my hometown & relived the best parts of my childhood. (I was born there but moved in 1978.) We mainly chose it because it was the most reasonably priced one close to Kennywood. We were pleased to discover that its access to the interstates made it convenient to most other parts of town too. We ended up cancelling a different hotel for the second night (originally chosen for proximity to Oakland) & extending our stay at the Comfort Inn. Also, they were thoughtful enough to give us a room some distance from those related to the very lively wedding in their banquet area.
This hotel is definately the best money value (can use AAA for a better deal) in the east Pittsburgh suburbs. We have stayed at many other locations for the same price, but here you get get a continental breakfast and a nicer indoor pool. This is an older hotel, but the rooms were clean and people were friendly.
We stayed at this hotel from August 5-7 for a reunion in the Pittsburgh area. We chose this property for its location and amenities listed although were disappointed. The interior of the hotel is shabby and in need of a facelift. Most security doors are propped open because they are broken! The indoor pool was the nicest feature, although the facility is not limited to hotel guests. The only day we planned to enjoy it, they were giving swim lessons to approximately 10 children. The outdoor pool (as listed on their website) does not exist. The breakfast buffet was good (eggs, sausage, bagels, muffins) but no one was around to clean the tables, so the area was a mess. The floors in the restaurant were filthy so we elected to eat elsewhere the following morning. On the morning we were leaving, maid service woke us up at 8:30 to tell us to leave our door open when we left. We would not recommend this hotel.
Thank you, Corey!
I've had to stay in this area many times over the past two years, and always stay at this hotel. The manager, Corey, is wonderful! He consistently goes out of his way to accommodate me and my needs, and is the reason I continue to stay here exclusively.
As a single female traveler, safety is very important. The security is excellent, with a room key needed to enter all doors except the one at the front desk. The indoor pool is huge, and always monitored. The continental breakfast is enough to start the day- the servers are very friendly and helpful. The hotel sits on top of a hill, with nice views and easy parking near the rooms.
My husband and I stayed here for a week while visiting our relatives. It's a decent place and relatively inexpensive, very convenient to the Parkway East and a 20-30 minute drive from downtown, Shadyside, Oakland and other more 'happening' parts of town (there's really nothing in Penn Hills where the hotel is located; Monroeville, the next suburb over, has lots of chain restaurants and dive bars but everything closes up early).
Stopped by here last weekend after leaving another really bad hotel property. I was quite impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the amenities the hotel offered. The room was quite spacious and comfortable, and everything was perfectly clean. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others and would love to stay here again.
