The Hampton was Great! A review of Hampton Inn & Suites Pittsburgh - Downtown
We stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites in downtown Pittsburgh Friday night, 8/24 room 213. The Hotel is brand new and immaculate!! The room we were in was fabulous. VERY spacious with 2 Queen beds, flat screen t.v., digital thermostat control for heat and a/c, very high ceilings, and spacious bathroom. Good water pressure, with nice sundry items.
This hotel is located in "The Strip District" and was a REALLY convenient, easily accessible location. It is also one of the few hotels left that have smoking rooms available.
The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable. Parking is secure, gated, and FREE!! Staff was friendly, and quick to respond.
There is a free breakfast type thing from 6 - 10 a.m. in the morning, coffee, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, muffins, hot eggs, biscuits and sausage gravy. All kinds of juice, milk, tea, etc. Great way to start the day.
Booked directly through the hotel web site and with my AAA discount was cheaper than booking at any other travel type web-site. They DO ask to see your AAA card at check-in so you MUST have it to get the discounted rate which was $107.00.
The Strip District is truly a MUST on Saturday morning, we had a blast walking the shops and sidewalk vendors. Lunch was at Primanti Brothers. We'd seen so much about that place on Trip Advisor, the Travel Channel and the Food Channel we were sure we couldn't go wrong. We were right! The place was great!
Friday night we drove over to the South Side "Station Square" which is fun day or night. The shops do close earlier than the night life, but it was fun. The Monogohela Incline is directly across the street and for $1.75 each way (up & down) it was fun. The incline runs from very early in the morning (I think 7 a.m.) till 12:45 a.m. at night. Ride once in the daylight and once at night. It's two completely different experiences.
The only complaint about the hotel was when the clubs closed down (2:30 a.m.) Some late night partiers checked in and were very disruptive till we called the front desk. They sent up hotel security immediately and it was taken care of right away. The hotel does NOT have any kind of gift shop, just a small cubby hole with a few assorted sundries, pop, and snacks. Very limited.
As this hotel probably caters more to business travelers during the week, the late night partiers are probably not an issue Mon - Fri.
Hopefully the hotel will be maintained in the same beautiful condition it is in now.
