Spent one night here for business. Did not eat or use any of the facilities. Hotel was fine but a little outdated. There was a lively bar scene and the staff was very nice. Water pressure in the shower was exceptional.

We chose this location due to its close proximity to Pitt for my daughter's Accepted Students Weekend. The location was ideal...the office of Admissions is adjacent to the Wyndham. The front desk staff was very pleasant and courteous. Parking is convenient and $20 per night. The room is OK; not worth the price paid. The bathrooms need updating. Received one...

I held a workshop in this hotel, it was reasonably nice. The ballroom was in good shape and large enough to seat 200 people. My attendees complained about the parking, but the hotel discounted it to 5 dollars, which I feel is fair considering it is close to the university and down town.

Our flight was late we didn't get in until after midnight and he seemed very upset that he had to deal with customers. Not friendly, helpful, or...

My stay at the hotel was good! Nice, clean room and if I needed anything at the front desk, they were very helpful. When I checked in one of the guest services employees, Mara, gave me a great first impression. Also, the shuttle service is great! Will go back!

As a local professional, sometimes it can be difficult to find the right place to talk shop. Some bars are too loud and coffee shops are too informal. But the lounge at the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center was perfect. Gloria and Donald made sure that our service was quick and and the drinks perfect. The sliders and other appetizers were...

Perfect location and I just adore Edward in the restaurant/bar. He is such a great addition to the staff, and just very welcoming to those of us that are not from the area! He is extremely helpful and kind.
