Great hotel for when people come to visit me at school. I've never had a complaint, and the staff is always friendly and accommodating, especially Diane at breakfast! Great location, close to everything in Oakland.

The staff were all very nice, including the valet staff. The hotel is a standard HGI. Room was clean....BUT. If you want sleep...do NOT stay in Room 904. I just spent two sleepless nights while people kept going in and out of a ridiculously slamming exit status door from 11pm to almost 3am. I actually put notes on the door...

For some reason, I only get to Pittsburgh when it's cold and gloomy outside. The Hilton Garden Inn welcomed me and made me feel very comfortable. I dropped of my bags in my room and it was just what I have come to expect......PERFECT. I went our for dinner and returned to the lobby bar to catch up on some...

The staff were very nice. Rocelle was a waitress in the restaurant for breakfast and was excellent. They has a shuttle that went to the VA Hospital were my dad had surgery and they would take us back and forth for free which made it very convenient. I would stay there again.

Reviewed 31 January 2017

The hotel room was adequate for the cost and location in downtown Pittsburgh. Only issues were the lobby is a split level where you had to carry your luggage up or down a flight of steps to reach the elevator. The $12.95 breakfast was not as "made to order" as listed and not worth the money paid.

This Hilton property is conveniently located just a block away from the UPMC in downtown Pittsburgh-- ideal for visitors to UPMC. Excellent value and quality. Clean, modern rooms. Comfortable bed. Good in-room WiFi service. Food in restaurant was good; above average. I highly recommend.

The hotel room wasnt very clean, wasnt blown away by how the room looked for the price we paid. The Pillows suck, and the cost of the hotel food is outragious. There are much better restaurants a few blocks away for less then what a sandwich is in there. I have stayed at this hotel many times but this time...

Every time I stay at this Hilton, my expectations are exceeded. The staff from the valet to housekeeping to the bar staff bleed customer service. My reservations are always set as expected. Food is on par with other hotels in this price point. The free water, coffee and cookies are always appreciated.

We were not overnight guests of the hotel, but I accompanied my husband to a meeting he had there 1/28/17. Unfortunately there was only one elevator operational that day. When we were leaving, the elevator stopped on the floor below is and then went back down instead of coming up another floor. We were just going to wait it out...

Family stayed here over several months while family member was at UPMC. Staff was kind, responsive, and provided unbelievable service. Special kudos to Alison in the restaurant and to the shuttle drivers, who were always available to take us back and forth to the hospital and always patient and kind.
