Good for an average hotel

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 1 Jun 2021
Hotel was what I expected, as it is a higher range budget hotel. Location is good, right next to the PPG center. Parking ($25 with tax) was a little pricy, and the gates are just open, it doesn't look like anyone checks it. You could park in the PPG arena lot across the street or even a few streets down, but downtown Pittsburgh can be a little scary as you get in the hood real quick.

Other than that, the room and bathroom were clean (carpet and some of the walls were stained a little), so no complaints there. The service was friendly as well. The lobby is real nice if you want somewhere to hang out. Depending on why you are in Pittsburgh, you could find a nicer hotel (if you include the $25 parking cost) and better location. So just do your homework.

We checked into the hotel very late. The rug had dark red and brown stains all over it. The cushion on the bench had dark brown stains. The last guest left a half-used bottle of body wash in the shower along with some hair in the tub. The tissue box was almost empty with no additional tissues left to replace. Dresser drawers were not clean from the last guest. The rug needs to be replaced not cleaned. Cleaning was terrible, especially in these Covid times. Other hotels have taken additional precautions like sanitizing the TV remote but not here. I've stayed at several other hotels in my travels and you could smell that the room had been cleaned. Instead, this room smelled musty. I did alert the front desk manager before I left. Very disappointed and will stay elsewhere next visit.

Room tip: Not room 415 until they renovate it

My wife and I stayed here for a month while our daughter was undergoing rehab in UPMC Mercy five blocks away. The staff has been amazing, kind, and super helpful during a really difficult time. Please note in the midst of the pandemic, this is one of the few hotels open in downtown, and they're running on a skeleton staff (7 people now, compared to normal staff of 60 when the bar/restaurant is open and they're busier). But despite the minimal staff, here's what they did for us.
Worked with us daily without charge when our daughter's discharge date from the other hospital changed several times and our move-in date kept changing.
Gave us a very nice long-term "hospital rate" with extra perks that made staying here so long much more affordable.
Gave us shuttle-on-request service back and forth to the hospital twice daily, responding quickly every time.
Helped us with tech issues to make working remotely from the hotel room more practical during our extended stay.
Coordinated periodic housekeeping services gracefully to fit our work and hospital schedule (note - had weekly housekeeping, which was fine - I clean my house and change the sheets on a weekly schedule at home, right?)
Did extras to try to make our stay more convenient and pleasant. Mario, Mike, and Jim, the main desk staff, always responded cheerfully and helpfully to help us in whatever way they could, and it made the whole experience much easier. They were kind, often asking about how our daughter was doing, and often asking if there was more they could do for us.
The room was nice, a larger-than-normal-room small suite with sleeping area, small sitting area, desk with comfortable chair, and refrigerator/microwave counter setup near the bathroom. Two TV's, with one having a hardwired audio/video panel to hook your computer up to and play through the TV if you wanted.
Location looks like it's not ideal to walk to nightlife if that's what you wanted - it is next door to the PPG arena, has good off-street parking, has several pizza joints within a couple blocks, and is near to Mercy Hospital.
The only con was they did have a hot water issue during part of our stay - you had to turn the water on five minutes before your shower, but then it was fine.
Overall, it's a nice place to stay, and it's the staff that is the gem. I will look for Cambrias to stay in for future travels.

Just checked out of a two night stay here. This might be one of the worst hotels we’ve ever stayed at. Nothing was open and there’s nothing within walking distance to the hotel, and the water in the shower was barely lukewarm then would suddenly get cold. When we called about it the first day they said they had just replaced a part that day and to let it run 5 or 10 minutes and it would get hot. It never did, then when we tried to call the front desk about it again no one ever answered. The 2nd day we came back to the hotel in late afternoon and found we’d never had housekeeping service. Tried to call to get someone to at least bring clean towels and again no answer. The lobby area looked nice but the room was outdated and not very clean. Will definitely not be back

I was surprised that it wasn't as good as the pictures and reviews. Broken furniture, broken parts on the refrigerator. Old school tech. One spot to plug in a USB for power to charge a device. Not easy access to outlets either. Somewhat clean, but I Clorox wiped the coffee area. It was quite dirty. I was disappointed that the bar and restaurant are not open. And not "real close" places for dining or nightlife. You'll need to walk at least a mile.

$20 per night for parking in an unsecured lot. Had a 2 queen bed that was so close up against the closet you couldn’t access it. Nothing within walking distance to get a quick meal despite being told there is.
