Oh wow what a chaotic Stay.
I chose this hotel as it was closest to Carnegie Library and Concert Hall as I was seeing a show there. It is still a good ten minute drive from this hotel. Luckily I was meeting a friend and driving to the show.
This Hotel is out in the suburbs of Pittsburgh but right near an outlet/shopping mall.
I caught a taxi from the convention centre out to waterfront, it cost approx. $20 the taxi dropped me off and drove off, I walked
up to check in and was promptly told that there was a plumbing problem in some of the rooms and that I would need to be relocated to another suburban hotel on the other side of the river approx. another 15 minutes away, they apologised
and said they would pay for the room and the taxi out there and called a taxi for me. As nice a gesture it was , I am an out of towner and not knowing my way around and being at some other hotel scared me a little and I got panicked, I tried to find another in town hotel but last minute they were all a fortune, I was so upset. The lady behind the desk (Pam) came to tell me that my taxi was here to take me to the new hotel and asked if I was ready I clearly wasn’t , she was very comforting assuring me everything would be OK and helped me out a
lot , she also gave me her direct number at the hotel in case I ran into any problems or needed to talk.
I was just about to get in the taxi to leave, luckily they were able to get a room due to a last minute “cancellation” So I was able to stay and was greatly relieved.
The room backed onto the river front and was bizarre as it made you feel as if you were in the jungle somewhere. The rooms were nicely
appointed and the beds were quite comfortable however the walls were quite thin, we had quietish neighbours which was good.
We went to Unos Pizzeria up the road for dinner which was nice.
If you were attending a show at Carnegie then for sure stay here, I didn’t like the location of the concert venue however so probably would not need to stay again.
Thank you Pam for Helping me out – I had a good stay here at this hotel 🙂
