Wie ihr ja bereits schon wisst, haben wir uns von Mexico verabschiedet und unsere Reise in Richtung USA fortgesetzt. Wie erwartet hat uns der Zollbeamte bei der Zwischenlandung in Atlanta äusserst unfreundlich in Empfang genommen. Trotzdem ging es diesmal im Gegensatz zum ersten Mal erstaunlich schnell vorwärts. Was wir …
... to everyone, we stopped home to grab my luggage and make sure I had everything. Mom drove me over to the Scahills to meet Jordan. Since she lives in DC, she was kind enough to let me ride down with her and rode me to the train station the next day. We loaded my stuff and finished packing the car before heading out. After a quick stop at Panera, we were on the road to ...

The spoiling continued as I came down the stairs to Dawn baking chocolate chip cookies! After taking my large bag of cookies and saying my goodbyes, I headed out into my last taste (Thank God!) of DC area traffic. It was slow going until a couple major highways took away a good chunk of the traffic. Traffic was heavy on and off clear until Pittsburgh (4th of July traffic?), where it ground to a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn Pittsburgh - University Center
Best Hotel in Pittsburgh
My room was pristine. The friendly staff informed me I would be sleeping in a brand new "Cloud 9" mattress, the bathrooms were newly renovated within the past year, and all the rooms have brand new carpet. The hotel is in an awesome location in Oakland, literally it is a 10-15 minute drive to anywhere in the inner city area, Downtown is 5 minutes, walking distance to University of Pittsburgh and CMU, and for dining, you can be at any of the city's 150+ restaurants in practically no time at all. Furthermore they have a shuttle van that will drive you within a 3 mile radius, this was awesome!! Hampton Inn's free hot breakfast buffet was a splendid treat, I was expecting to have to shell out $30 for breakfast each morning. Best value for your dollar.
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, and everything was good, although the bed seemed to be in need of replacement (in room 408), as it seemed to be a bit uneven. The room was a little on the small size. I did manage to peer into a room on the odd-numbered side of the hotel, and the room seemed to be a little bigger on that side of the hotel.
we were in town for 2 nights for a job interview - the location of the hotel is in the oakland part of pittsburgh, and was reasonably close to a good number of restaurants, bars, and services. the place is clean and the staff were very helpful with directions and recommendations for eating out, etc. parking costs extra, $9/night, which will raise the price a bit. the only downside was that the free continental breakfast didn't have eggs every day (alternated with french toast sticks). when coming back to pittsburgh we would stay here again.
Best choice period!
Excellent service.The staff were friendly,courteous and ready to help. Clean rooms.Clean sheets,very clean floors! Very good continental breakfast.Fresh fruit,buns,rolls,donuts,coffee,tea,juice!The works! Good price. Free shuttle to downtown and major attractions. We'll be back!
Stayed here to see a Stones concert when all the downtown hotels were booked solid. Staff was pretty friendly and helpful. My room was, well, a hotel room. Bed, tv, desk, chair. Nothing outstanding but nothing wrong either. Bathroom had a shower, no tub. There's a complimentary continental breakfast each day but I'm a late riser so I can't say what it's like. Offstreet parking was nice, but not exactly cheap ($19 sticks in my head but don't quote me). Also nice is the free shuttle to downtown that leaves every hour. There didn't seem to be a lot to do in the immediate vicinity of the hotel in terms of restaurants, bars, etc., though I didn't really explore the area much. All in all, a pretty good choice if you want to stay in the university area, or if you're looking for a cheaper alternative to the downtown hotels. By the way, if you're a walker, it's not out of the question to walk from the hotel to downtown or the South Side. I ended up walking back after the concert, by way of the South Side. Stopping at a few "establishments" along the way made it quite doable :)
This was a favorite thanks to free parking and breakfast but the
hotel changed policy in September- its now $9 but at least it is self
parking. They have put some money into the place, upgrading the
bathrooms and the buffet breakfast, but the prices have crept up
and this is no longer a great bargain
Good hotel and location but a bit overpriced
Just stayed at this H.I. and found it convenient to downtown and tourist attractions. Staff was very helpful and friendly. I think that the price of the king study rooms (about $119/night) is too high, given the rooms are very average in quality and the $9/night parking fee. Very well worth it if a deal below $100 can be found.
Great deal, great location
Stayed just one night but found the hotel to be a bargin at $89. Comfortable bed, clean modern bathroom, nice view of the skyline, and no funny smells made this an exceptional deal. Included a breakfast buffet. Parking was an additional $9 which was supposed to be free according to the 800# reservationist but that was only a minor irk. Handy to Oakland, Squirrel Hill, Downtown, and Shadyside.
A Good Value For Your Money
I was very pleased with this hotel -- nice rooms, good complimentary breakfast, free parking, courteous staff, convenient location to PITT (our destination), and lower rates than other nearby hotels. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
There are many colleges in the area, and many hotels to choose from. We have found Hampton is to be the best value for the money. The rooms are well-furnished, the staff is friendly and accomodating, the free breakfast is good. There is even free parking (a minor miracle in that area). You won't make a mistake choosing this hotel.
