I was recently scheduled for a visit (and at a great rate) but thought I would not be able to make it due to an impending snow storm. Customer Service Rep Earl worked with me to amend my reservation so that I could come in later and still keep my great rate. When I decided at the last minute to...

Nice hotel that needs some work. Grout in the showers needs attention and the deadbolt does not work well with the door handle. Lift up on the handle to get in not down if the door doesn't open. Comfy beds. Full restaurant and room service. Staff is friendly and professional from front desk to Maintenance to restaurant.

I can't say enough good things, especially about the wonderful manager Scott. Had some issues with the shuttle - he fixed everything with a smile - didn't make me feel like the bad guy. He has the ability to make me, a frustrated mom (ready for a fight) feel completely like my issues were valid and important. A VERY rare...

If you are visiting UPitt, the Wyndham is basically on campus. The Alumni Hall sits next door and the immodestly named Cathedral ("Cathy") of Learning requires a few blocks walk. Starbucks and a bakery are about 2 blocks for breakfast unless you want the more involved choices served by the hotel. The bar and restaurant in the lobby works very...

The hotel is in a great location for visiting the Carnegie Museums, the university, and the Conservatory. All are pretty much within walking distance. There is a shuttle which stopped after 4:30 the day we were there. The pool is heated. The desk staff is helpful. We paid $30 extra for the breakfast and got 2 coupons for breakfast worth...

Great location to be close to U of Pittsburgh or Carnegie Mellon but I must say I was surprised when they told me that it would be $20 for parking. That said, they did allow us to keep our car there even after we checked out and we spent the day touring the area on foot without an extra charge....
