No pool - which was a huge disappointment when traveling with an 11 & 14 year old. My mistake though, I must've saw a pool at another property and got mixed up. Also no good family-friendly restaurants near by. Lots of (loud) bars for the night crowd...but again not a family-friendly environment. Pittsburgh was fun, but this was the wrong...

Location is great being close to convention center, PNC Park, Heinz Field, and Cultural District. Plenty of great restaurants within walking distance as well as an easy walk to the Strip District. The staff was helpful and everyone was very friendly. The hotel itself is not up to the standards of newer remodeled Courtyards. The ceilings are high and the...

Dear PingEye2, It is always great to hear from our guests, and we are so happy to know our staff has treated you well throughout your stay here. Being a historical property, we have original hardwood flooring throughout the entire building, so that creaky noise you heard is from the original hardwood! Thank you for taking the time to review...

Family Reunion in Pittsburgh, July 2016. We chose Courtyard Downtown for fabulous location and great pricing. We were so happy with this hotel. Rooms and staff were great. Added bonus- great restaurants next door and across the street! Staff knowledgeable and eager to help. Travis and Quinn are excellent employees. They made our stay great. We will return.

Just got back from Pittsburgh and this is our second time at the Courtyard. This Marriott is in a wonderful location near top restaurants, theater and cultural options, and you can walk across the Roberto Clemente Bridge to the sports stadiums. We did a tour of Heinz Field (great!) and attended two Pirates games (fun!). We also went to Steelers...

This is a nicer Courtyard with a really good staff and several great restaurants right across the street. I highly recommend the tacos at Bakersfield. The staff was really friendly and helpful with restaurant and activity recommendations. We would definitely stay here again.

Dear LB-Dude, Thank you for your response! We're very lucky to be in the heart of the Cultural District and surrounded by so many great restaurants. Bakersfield is a Courtyard favorite!

Stayed at the hotel for the DUG East Conference. It is very conveniently located to the Convention Centre, PNC Park and dozens if not hundreds of restaurants. The room was very pricey at $293 based on my standards. Valet parking was only $25 though and offered great service. Folks were super nice.
