Pittsburgh has a reputation as a somewhat polarizing city – people either love or hate it– but we're not sure why. There is much to love, whether it’s the fact that it’s a leader in environmental design or that a multitude of Fortune 500 companies chose Pittsburgh as their headquarters. Pittsburgh was recently named the Most Livable City in the US by Forbes and The Economist, and it’s easy to see why.
It doesn’t matter if you’re here for work or play; you’re bound to have a good time. Since we told you how to get there, and what to do once you’re there, we want to share our picks of the best hotels in Pittsburgh – for every budget and length of stay.
1. Hotel Monaco
Technically, Monaco Pittsburgh doesn’t open until February 2015 – we’re just that excited about it. This pet-friendly luxury hotel’s grand opening is on everybody’s mind, for good reason. Aside from having beautiful accommodations, Monaco Pittsburgh places a high premium on customer satisfaction. Whether you’d like a cruiser bike to ride around town, overnight laundry or dry cleaning, in-room massages and body treatments, yoga mats in your room, or special perks and programs for young ones, all you have to do is ask. Their restaurant, The Commoner, is truly anything but common, and if you don’t feel like a full meal, you can stop by the Commoner Corner for some smoked meats and small bites. If you’re thirsty, Monaco Pittsburgh also hosts a wine hour each night in the lobby. Could you ask for more? They’re currently accepting reservations for 2015. Time to get in line…
2. Wyndham Grand
This upscale hotel is smack dab in the center of Pittsburgh’s business district and exceeds expectations of what a hotel should be. Their rooms are modern and welcoming, and there is plenty to do elsewhere on site. Between their sophisticated restaurant, Three Rivers, and amenities like free Wi-Fi, ATM services, valet parking, and turn-down services, not to mention close proximity to the best things in Pittsburgh’s theatre, retail, and business hub, you’ll always find a reason to spend a day out. Good thing the Wyndham Grand will always be an ideal place to spend the night. Be sure to check out their special deals and offers to save as much as 30%.
3. Hyatt House South Side
Sometimes it’s comforting to stay at a hotel that has a homey feel – especially if you’re traveling with your family. Amenities like a full kitchen, grocery shopping services, high-speed internet, full breakfast, laundry facilities, and a knowledgeable concierge aren’t just luxuries – they’re necessities. Hyatt House goes out of its way to make sure each guest is helped with whatever they need, removing everyday stress from the situation. Plus, their H Bar provides you with everything you need for a low-key evening, whether it’s a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich or a simple glass of wine. If you need a place that lets you relax in Pittsburgh without the price tag of a five-star hotel, Hyatt House is ready for you.
4. Home2 Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh
There are many reasons we love Home2 Suites, but what stands out the most is how at home you feel when you’re staying there(hence the name!). It’s almost like staying in a fancy apartment rather than just a bare-bones hotel room. Each room has a kitchen, with an induction stove cooktop available upon request, along with work stations and media hubs. Log a few miles on the stationary bike while you laundry for free at their Spin2 Cycle laundry/workout station. Use the nearby LA Fitness center, or swim in their indoor saline pool. Here on business? No problem – Home2 has a business services area that includes free printing. And they’ve got a variety of special offers, like the Rest & Refuel package, that gives you a complimentary breakfast and $25 Visa gas card. For the price you pay per night, you may never want to leave!
5. Homewood Suites at Pittsburgh Airport
Sure, Homewood Suites isn’t a luxury resort. But the price is definitely right, and they’re far from just “another hotel by the airport.” Ideal for travelers getting in late or leaving early, Homewood Suites covers all the basics, but goes beyond what’s expected of them. Each room has a full kitchen, which is especially convenient for travelers trying to save money by buying and cooking their own groceries, rather than eating out. They’ve got a great variety of amenities that don’t come standard with every inexpensive hotel, and environmentalists can rest easy because Homewood Suites is LEED-certified. If you’re flying in or out of Pittsburgh Airport on a budget, you can’t beat Homewood Suites.
