Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Pittsburgh West
Great affordable hotel!
My husband, my two kids, my brother, my sister, and I, rented two rooms at the Best Western Greentree from 8/10-8/12. We were very happy with the hotel! All of the staff was very pleasant, from the front desk clerks to the housekeepers. Check-in went very smoothly. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the beds were very soft (Serta pillow-top mattresses). The pool was clean and fairly warm. I didn't check out the hot tub. The free Internet access in the lobby was great! I used it to look up and print directions to various places. The breakfast buffet was pretty decent for being a "continental breakfast" - it had french toast, bagels, muffins, doughnuts, cereal and milk, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit salad, yogurt, orange juice, and coffee. The hotel is located right next door to a mall with a Giant Eagle and a K-Mart, convenient for buying late-night snacks. There is a Chinese restaurant and a deli next door to the hotel, and the mall has a food court, but I don't think it opens until the afternoon. There are a ton of fast-food restaurants and stores however, in the valley below the hotel - my husband stopped at the front desk of the hotel and asked where we could find some restaurants, and the clerk printed out directions for him from her computer. Overall, we were very pleased with the hotel. If you are using an online map website to get directions to the hotel, be careful however, because one popular map website said the hotel is located off I-376, when it is in fact located off I-279S. My husband and I got terribly lost trying to find the hotel, until we found out that it is off 279. I recommend calling the hotel for directions before heading there.
Nice hotel with good staff
Convenient location - only a few miles from downtown PIT. They had a shuttle running since we needed to get to MLB All Star game.
Some confusion at front desk at times but it was a busy time due to the baseball game.
Breakfast buffet was adequate nothing fancy but its free.
Good internet access.
Hotel room had a great hot tub.
Parking can be a problem - there is a large office park/school in the same parking lot and it can be a hike from your car to the hotel.
Reasonable Hotel at a good price
This hotel is a nice, clean hotel in a safe area. It's located only about 2 miles from downtown Pittsburgh and offer free shuttle service to the downtown area. Although it is a 2-3 star hotel that will never be confused with a Hilton or Omni type hotel, if you can get a room for less then $100 a night it is a very good value. I have stayed here twice and had no complaints either stay. It's perfect for business in the Pittsburgh area or an inexpensive weekend get away. Not an ideal to place to propose to your future wife however...
None the less, it is what it is, recommeneded. I will stay there again presuming I can get a rate under $100 per night...
Wonderful - Very Clean!!
What a nice clean and comfortable hotel. Great pool and great carry out available. Around everything! Just a short trip to downtown!
Nice place, Nice price
I've stayed in 3 different Best Westerns, in the past two months, and this was the nicest, so far. Queen size bed was comfortable and room was clean. Continental breakfast had a lot of variety and was also very clean. They have the room and could use a restaurant on site (not many convenient places to eat in the area). Unfortunately did not have the time to check out the pool or fitness room.
Nice Hotel with Nice Pool & Whirlpool
Nice clean rooms with a nice pool.
Very nice continental breakfast.
Not a lot of places to eat around the area.
We stayed at the Parkway Center Inn the weekend of February 26, 2005 and had a WONDERFUL time! Our room which turned out to be a "suite" was super clean and well equipped! The "managers reception" in the evening (3 drinks per person) was a added bonus as well! My Mom went with my husband/daughter and I and her room was equally as nice, even though it was just a plain queen size room. The pool water was very warm and our daughter (age 6) was happy about that! The staff was the BEST!!! I even called the following Monday after our stay and asked to speak to the manager so I could tell her what a super staff she has....it was phenominal! Everyone from the front office staff, pool attendants, housekeeping....EVERYONE!! Super duper!
I would definately stay at the Parkway Center Inn again!
Clean hotel, staff ok
Ok hotel with free internet access. My room was small but comfortable. They have FREE contineltal breakfast. I asked for extra pillows and was able to get them. They are doing a remolding right now. I would stay there again.
Have stayed here many times over the years. Rooms are clean, staff courtious and the location is close to everything. Breakfast room was always well stocked. Don't waste time on inconvienent locations just to save a couple of dollars. If you are on a budget and looking for a great location to hop into Pittsburgh or out to the airport this is the place to stay. Let's face it, what we need is a good place to sleep, not to live in for 24 hours a day.
Okay i guess
This seems to be an older building - new carpets, though. Best was the staff here - very friendly, considerate and professional. But those air conditioners! Must have powered aircraft carriers originally, because they are OLD and LOUD. For the price, a pretty good place.

... details, but enough of you know that about me. In the past five years or so, my life has settled to become so predictable and boring that I have finally reached the winter of my discontent (literally, considering that this is January in Pittsburgh). I love to live, laugh, dance, have fun and adventures, but I haven't been doing much of any of those lately. Hence my decision to book a two month trip to SE Asia so I can do all of those! Why ...
Initially we came to Pittsburgh looking to see the Andy Warhol museum and visit the Carnegie Hall where the last lecture was given... And then we saw the sky and knew we had to find a spot for sunset. The top hit was Mount Washington. Getting there was pretty cool, the mountain side was filled with full house style houses. And freeways through mountains. Once you get to Mount Washington stay on Grandview Ave for the ...

The game was a nail biter, I ordered a burger and it came with fries on the side, it was so good I ordered another.The hockey games was unreal the Detroit flyers put up a good fight but were no match for the mighty Penguins, after the game I walked along the water front back to the Watermark and stopped at Phillips Conservatory, it's ...
On a more positive note, I do seem to be doing pretty well with my chocolate habit. I haven't eaten any chocolate in six days. Yay, me!
Anyways, I ended up leaving my room around two. In the two hours between waking and venturing out into the city, I had decided that I wanted to see the Heinz History Center and Sports Museum. With the address plugged into the map/gps application on my phone, I wandered out, confident in my ability to ...
... of extending our stay and cheating the system. Eventually the Officer said he believed our ‘innocence’ but advised that we not leave the Country again before our end date and that currently is March, 2014. We explained that we were planning a trip home in January and then would ask to stay in the US until May – he strongly advised against it but did tell us we could apply on-line for a two-month extension.
