... We crossed a interesting bridge that was made in Alexdrainda MN. We have gone about 25 and to get our campground, Round Bottom we need to go 25 more miles! Sad Fact: I left my kindle in the car I guess I'll be reading the guide book! Mom : Dad enjoyed his power ...
... buffalo. On this one road we went through a tunnel and framed in the exit opening was Mt. Rushmore. Gives ya chills. Later that night we sat in the parking lot of Mt. Rushmore and waited till it got dark. At about 8:45 p.m. lights started to illuminate the faces. They just glowed at first then got progressively brighter. Very nice. The movers and shakers of our country. I wonder what they would think if they could see us and our loss ...
So before I get started there is something that you should know and understand about me. I am a neurotic traveler. If I have a schedule then you can dam well be certain that I intend on keeping it. I mention this because when we originally decided to go to Pittsburgh as our first stop we wanted to leave around 11am on May 30th so that we could drive the 6 hours to Pitt and then still go out ...

When we got to Jack's we had the pleasure of meeting 3 Canadians, the first so far on the trip. We had an amazing time with them, so glad to finally have something other than American company for the first time since Ozzy Mark, and ...

And finally, the piece de resistance: I was walking down the hallway at school and I tripped, bowling right into--cue dramatic music--a whole group of my peers who all fell down. That is probably the only strike I ever rolled.

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Points by Sheraton Pittsburgh Airport Findlay Township
The renovations make a diference
Traveled to the Four Points again on business and arrived on Wed. the 26 of Oct. After taking the complimentary shuttle from the airport I arrived to find that I was in one of the recently completely renovated rooms. It was FANTASTIC! Having stayed here before I was prepared for an average stay in a facility that I was comfortable with and near the businesses I needed to call on. But the newly renovated room product is 180 degrees in the right direction from the old. The rooms are spacious, lighter, modern and the new bedding is super. I have found a new home whne on business in Pittsburgh.
We booked this hotel thru priceline. The Saturday before our stay, I called to confirm. We were traveling with our two sons, so I wanted to ensure we had two beds. The person I spoke to was extremely rude to me and said because I booked thru priceline, I would get whatever room was left. I contacted a manager the following Monday and he apologized and made sure I had a room with two beds. Hotel is in a very secluded area, which was very nice because it was so quiet. Our first day there, temps hit a high of 95 degrees. That night the air did not work in our room. I contacted the front desk to ask for a different room. They said they would send the maint. guy asap to check it out. He came within 20 minutes. After checking it over he said he wasn't going to be able to fix it and that he would try to get a different room. He called Walt on the speaker phone, (this is the same person I spoke to, to confirm the reservation). Walt's reply to the maint guy was (not realizing we were on the speaker phone), "don't worry about them, they are priceline". The maint. guy's reply was I will call you right back. He proceeded to call on the other phone (not on speaker), and told Walt he needs to put us in another room. We were then moved to another room. I spoke to the manager the next morning and explained to him what this person had said and how he had made us feel. (as though we were not good enough to stay at this hotel because we bought our tickets thru priceline. He gave us a complementary breakfast and an apology. Shortly after that, my husband went to plug our cell phone in behind the chair in the room. He notice some kind of poop on the floor behind the chair. I called housekeeping immediately and explained to them what we found. The manager of housekeeping came within minutes to clean up. She also assured us that she would clean the room herself that day and bring in all new linens, comforters, pillows, etc. When we got back that night the room was spotless. She left us four bottles of water and a large plate of chocolate chip cookies for our inconvenience. She made us feel very good about staying there, so did the manager. The last night we were there we had to deal with Walt again. The housekeeper did not leave any towels in our room, so I called the front desk and Walt answered. I explained we had not towels. I also asked if I could get an extra pillow. He told me no, there was a shortage of pillows. He was very rude about it. Our overall stay was ok. We did like the hotel, however, we were very dissatisfied with Walt. The managers went out of there way to correct our problems and I am grateful for that. If you are booking thru priceline, beware of Walt!!
It will be difficult to keep this objective as this property was horrible and the staff were even worse, but here it goes:
Unfortunately, this was the worst hotel I have ever experienced and I travel quite frequently. The hotel smelled musty and old from the front door. My room was grimy and felt unclean. The bedspread was dirty. This was a most horrible experience. The one relatively positive comment I can give is the complementary bottle of water - necessary since the vending machine was completely empty.
Fine, but not as impressed as other reviewers.
Room was fairly large and clean, but nothing special. Bed not overly comfortable, front desk staff merely OK, but shuttle driver was good. Truly out-of-the-way location is odd. Common areas are nice & well-kept. Overall, a fairly pleasant but utterly forgettable stay.
Just came back from this nice hotel. It was reported to be hard to find, but I did not get lost, following map quest driving direction turn by turn ------------------- and when I left the following morning, I made the first right to another direction trying to find new way to the hotel, and, surprisingly, I got on the highway RIGHT AWAY, but at exit 4 of Hwy 60 rather than exit 2.
Spent the weekend (Saturday to Monday) in Pittsburgh to visit a friend's family. We stayed at the Four Points Sheraton at the Airport. It was very hard to find (seems like it's in the middle of no-where), but once we got there, we were very pleased. It was very nicely decorated and clean. Even though it was small, it had a very nice lounge, lobby and restaurant. The pool was spotless with a lifeguard on duty even though it was too chillly to go swimming. At $39/night through Hotwire, it was a steal.
Very good value, used Hot-wire and was only $45. Excellent location, tucked in an industrial park in a very nice setting. Rooms good-above average. Restaurant quite pricy, no biggie, LOADS of restaurants nearby.
I wasn't sure what to expect since I booked the Sheraton as part of an Expedia package. Most hotels in this price range are NOT nice, in fact most seem to be pretty lousy and have that great musty smell when you walk in. This was a PLEASANT surprise. Rooms were large, updated, and immaculate. I stayed 3 nights, and each evening that I returned to my room, it was spotless and even smelled really fresh! People here were very friendly, they have a nice bar/restaurant area, and it was very quiet. It's a little far from downtown, but right next to a huge shopping complex. Excellent value for the price.
