Major score for the day was our tickets bought on stubhub for $9 total. They are the first row on the 300 level but supposedly the Pirates second deck is the shortest distance to home plate compared to the other new-ish stadiums in the MLB....I guess we'll see tomorrow.
Today is driving day, or as I like to say "rest day for our feet". Our one stop today was Gettysburg national military park where the battle of Gettysburg from July 1-3,1863 took place. The battle was between Union and Confederate forces during the American Civil War. The battle involved the largest number of casualties of the entire war. The rest of the day was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Pittsburgh City Center
Went to watch the Patriots play the Steelers with my wife on Halloween weekend. We got a great rate at the Marriott and loved our big corner room. It was clean and very spacious and had a great view of the city. Be sure to park next door (around the corner to the left of the lobby) if you rent a car. It's cheaper and there is direct, indoor escalator access to the Marriott. The girls at the front desk teased us about wearing our Patriot jerseys and we had a lot of laughs. We really loved walking around and the city of Pittsburgh. Although the Hilton is closer to Heinz Field, we only had a ten minute walk to get there from the Marriott. The only drawback was the lack of a reasonable restaurant on the hotel grounds. But we found a great pub across the street which was part of the Ramada Inn. We also ate a great breakfast buffet at the Hilton prior to the game. I spoke to a guy who was staying at the Hilton and he only paid $70.00 per night via Priceline. We paid $78.00 (gov't rate) at the Marriott.
Stayed here recently on business and was pleased with the hotel overall. It's clean, rooms are spacious and modern, staff was pleasant and helpful. Solid 3-star place. Restaurant there - Steelhead Grill - is nice food for a hotel, but I wouldn't call it a great restaurant (as Marriott-Pittsburgh does on its website). Location is also very good if you need proximity to downtown. Parking next to hotel at public garage is a little inconvient, but cheaper than $23 valet at hotel.
Overall a good hotel worthy of Marriott name.
Good value if bought at a discount!
Stayed here for three nights in November 2004. The hotel is a bit "off-centre" but you can walk to the downtown area in 4 to 5 minutes at most. The rooms were big as were the beds. Complementary newspapers were also supplied. I didn't use the pool since, it appears, you need a buddy in order to use it (ie someone who knows you also needs to be in the pool) although a life guard is always on duty. No PBS on the TV which was a shame. I paid $70 per night using priceline which I think was great value for money.
No class at this hotel
made a reservation for Rev. John Frazier on september 13 to september 19 had to cancel the first three days due to mothers medical surgery and was denied stay the last two days and was marked a no show. Plus from day one of confirming the reservation was treated poorly by the reservation staff.
My sister had my bachelorette party for me at the Mariott and they upgraded us to the Presidential Suite! It was beyond fabulous. The woman at the front desk knew who I was and what I needed to do and where to go as soon as I entered the hotel. I was treated like royalty. I feel that the whole tone of the night was set by the excellent service and the wonderful hotel suite. The room was more than beautiful.
My fiance and I stayed there not to long ago for 50 dollars. We had a king sized bed, a room with a gorgeous view of the city, a couch, tables and wall length mirrors. I love this hotel.
A very pleasant stay.
The Marriott sits atop a little hill a few blocks above downtown, but is still easily walkable. Apparently the rooms were updated within the last few years, and they are attractive, comfortable, and spotless. The climate control is good--very quiet, and it will automatically switch back and forth between heat & AC depending on temperature you select. The beds are quite comfortable as well. Bathrooms are a little small, but have enough counter-space. Views are decent, particularly facing north. True, the Omni William Penn and the Renaissance are more luxurious, have more character, and have beautiful lobbies, but if you get a decent price here, it's a good value.
Three of my co-workers and I stayed here the past week, and we all sure enjoyed our stay. The rooms were nice and well kept. Everyone from the valet, the front desk and housekeeping were pleasant and friendly. We would all highly recommend!
Best Hotel IN PITTSBURGH
It is a sham that Pittsburgh has a parking tax rate of 50%. This is a lovely hotel just want a Marriott is supposed to be. The front desk is the best part of the hotel. When I am in Pittsburgh The Marriott CIty Center is my place
I just spent two nights at the Marriott over the President's Day weekend. The Marriott in downtown Pittsburgh was pretty much a generic hotel. The pool was closed for renovations, which was disappointing.
Pittsbugh Marriott not quite up to par
I recently spent two nights at the Pittsburgh Marriott City Center and found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The disappointing area was room quality. The AC worked poorly however they did offer to move me to a different room. I am sure I wasn't the first to complain so this room should not have been used in the first place. There are no ventilation fans in the bathroom so it makes the room very humid. This also led to the mildew growing on the ceiling above the shower. Not a pretty sight. I would still recommend the hotel but be sure to look closely at your room as soon as you check-in.
