Sheraton Station Square Hotel
Travel Blogs from Pittsburgh
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 …
My alarm went off at 6am and I was glad that I arrived home before 10pm last night. I packed my suitcase and caught a cab to the airport. It was now 7am and the city was getting busy as it was the beginning of the morning rush hour.
I checked into the customs area and I was good to go to my departure gate. The flight was running late and I plenty of time to get some food and drink. The flight to Singapore took about 8 hours
As my trip was winding down I decided to volunteer at the Duquesne incline mountain
lifts. I was going to help the volunteers that keep the restoration of the lifts in peak condition. it was going to be a peaceful afternoon working with two of the old builders who have been working on the lifts for forty years. They rely on volunteers to help as they are not funded ...
... most delicious. My favourite was the pepperoni roll and the mele. Most of the businesses we visited are family run and have been within that same family for many years. The owners came out and chatted with us, a couple were quite quirky characters to say the least! My final stop in Pittsburgh was to visit the Andy Warhol museum. Set over seven levels, it chronicles his early life and education in Pittsburgh through to his career and death in NYC. Some of the art was creatively ...
... or next year. I must seize the moment now or risk losing the window of opportunity altogether.
I have longer layovers than usual on this trip and for the first time in a long time, I don't have any big projects to work on. I plan on doing a lot of reading and evaluations of some manuscripts people have sent me. Other than that, this is a trip where I am devoting myself to showing my family a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Station Square Hotel Pittsburgh
We spent 2 nights at the Sheraton Station Square hotel in May 2005. The location is excellent, right along the river with a great view of downtown Pittsburgh. The Monangahela Incline is right there. Bus and subway service are nearby, as well as the restaurants and shops at Station Square. Our seventh-floor room was large. We used the pool/health club facilities, which were clean and well-kept. The Lobby Bar was also a very nice place for a drink.
Just returned... this hotel is just beautiful. The rooms are awesome and bed is very comfortable. We had 3 days of meetings and they catered all the food. The quality of the catering was great, the food was very good.
This is the place to stay in Pittsburgh!
Recently in Pittsburgh, our stay at the Sheraton Station Square was better than we expected. The rooms were very nice with very comfortable beds & pillows. We had a great view of the river. The hotel bar was very nice as was the restaurant. This hotel is in a great location with lots of stores, restaurants & bars within walking distance. We came for the Steeler game & had a great time. The Sheraton van was always ready to take us into the city whenever we wanted. All in all, great hotel.
We stayed at the Sheraton Station Square in Sept for a reunion. Had a great room with a beautiful view. Even though there was rain and flooding in the area we felt totally safe in the hotel. Staff was very friendly and assuring. Reunion was great and the food was wonderful! Bar was great too. Close to alot of shopping and reataurants. Would definately stay there again!

It was ok
The room was okay, but I expected better. I unfortunately did not receive a room with a view and I paid $32.00 to park for two days. Some of the staff members were nice, some were rude. I think you could do better.
GREAT WEEKEND GETAWAY
Staying at the Sheraton at Station Square in Pittsburgh was a great time. Our room was big, nicely decorated and the staff was so helpful. We could walk to the Incline for the best view of Pittsburgh, we could walk to duck tours, boats that had all kids of cruises, boats that took you to PNC ballpark for a baseball game. Within two blocks of the hotel you could dine at the Grand Concourse(one of Pittsburgh's best restaurant for seafood and steaks and desserts) Bucca de Beppa for family style dinners, and Hard Rock for the kids. They have a water ballet show every 20 minutes that is really neat at night with color lights. Numerous other Pittsburgh tours and plenty of bars and other eateries for the older crowd at night are located there. We parked our car on Thurs afternoon and didn't go back to it until Monday at noon when we left. It was so nice to be able to see all of Pittsburgh without getting into our car.
Great location in Pittsburgh
We stayed at the Sheraton Station Square on 3/26/04. the hotel is really nice, but the best part is the location right in Station Square, convenient to several eateries and shops. Although I didn't pay extra for a view, we had an excellent view of the river, station square and the city facing north. The only complaint I have is the water pressure in the bathroom is horrible. The pool area is really nice, although we didn't use it. Parking was $16 for 24 hours in the lot next to the hotel. Not cheap, but if you stay anywhere in the city, you'll have to pay for parking. We will stay again next time we are in Pittsburgh.
Not a bad place to stay in the Pitt
Stayed at the Sheraton Station Square for the good part of a month. On the whole, I would say it is a pretty good choice if you have to get stuck staying in the Pitt. I stayed in both a Sweet Sleeper room on the SPG floor (8th) facing the mountain and in a regular room facing the atrium. The Sweet Sleeper rooms are a little bigger with nicer desks and a nicer bathroom. Also, free water was replenished each day while in the regular room no water was to be found. SPG room looked newer but i think it was in the newer part of the building that was added on more recently. Regular room had a little bit of a rundown bathroom but still, room was nice. In addition, I think I received nightly turn down service with a chocalate as part of being recognized as SPG Gold as my coworker never received this treatment and they are not Gold.
Some people complain about the train that runs continually throughout the day and night. I'm a pretty deep sleeper so it never bugged me.
There is one that runs on either side of the hotel so city/mountain view doesn't really matter.
As SPG Gold, had access to club level lounge. Nice Continental in the morning with appetizers and free wine in the evening. They also give out free cookies and milk until 10:45 sun-thurs.
The Station Square has some restaurants and bars around there but no action during the weeknights. Fri/Sat is a different story and in addition, the Southside is about 2 miles down the road and they have a free shuttle that will take you down there.
Comfortable rooms, beautiful views
We stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms with a river/city view.
Paying the extra dollars for a river view was worth every penny! Not only did we have an incredible view of the city from our huge floor-to-ceiling windows, but we had fun watching the Gateway Clipper fleet coming and going from their dock below us. True, there are train tracks running along the river... but we never heard the trains and slept soundly in an extremely comfortable bed. The room was very tastefully decorated and more than satisfactory; in fact, our only problem with the room was that for some reason there was no exhaust fan in the bathroom so it got a bit steamy in there when we showered. Front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. We called housekeeping for extra pillows and they were knocking at our door within minutes. The pool / whirlpool area was very nice, and the bar in the lobby was a great place to relax with a drink and do some people watching. If you're in town over Thanksgiving, the Sheraton's Thanksgiving Buffet Dinner is just wonderful. We'd stay here again without question.
