Pleasant, convenient, on the site of a largish mall, within walking distance of a promenade on the river.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Callister Good hotel, would stay again.
Comfortable room, a bit small for three people but the beds were great and we all slept well. Staff was helpful and professional, and the property was well maintained. Nice variety of breakfast items some of which changed daily. Good location for the Waterfront and Oakland area. Would stay here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kate3000 Clean and new, good location, missing basic things
We visited Pittsburgh on a busy weekend and were pleased to find a room available in this desirable location. The price was much too high for the Saturday night stay (it increased dramatically between Friday and Saturday).
We were surprised that several things were completely missing from the room - a hook on the back of the bathroom door, a towel rack in the bathroom, the ability to turn on the bathroom light w/out also turning on the fan. These are regular things we always find in hotels in this price range. It seemed that this hotel just cut corners to save money in construction. The bathtub seemed to have large cracks between it and the floor.
Because it's new, it was OK. This cheap construction won't hold up long.
The breakfast was fine and we enjoyed the pancake machine. The staff was friendly although completely disinterested in honoring our request for a quiet room. We were placed right across from the elevator - which is always a noisy spot. We didn't arrive late and could have been in another room. The hotel was booked but not filled when we checked in at dinner time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bea48 Handicap Accessible Room
We requested a handicap accessible room because my husband has just recently had his leg amputated. Actually we stayed here because it was very close to a medical building where he needed a procedure done early in the AM. The front desk clerk saw that I was struggling with all his equipment and it was raining which made it worse. He couldn't have been nicer. He started taking things out of my arms and took us directly to our room. He put things where we thought they would work best. The room was nice and big and we were happy. Only after he left did I notice there was no walk in shower so I called the front desk. I think it was the manager who answered and said he'd get right on it. Next thing I knew the clerk was back in our room, picking up everything, apologizing over and over and even pushed my husband's wheelchair to the new room. Then he set us up all over again. Smiled and chatted the whole time and kept insisting if there was anything else we needed, all we had to do was pick up the phone. I'd gladly stay there any time!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DrH1895 Great Value for Money
I only have good things to say about this Hotel. I was greeted by a very friendly and professional reception person. Chris was his name. He was helpful and made suggestions for local restaurants. He was also sure to follow all the rules and acknowledge an IHG member. Five stars for staff. The hotel was clean, lobby very inviting, beds very comfortable. The air in the room was a little stuffy and I couldnt open a window for fresh air.
As for the location. I had business downtown. The information on the site made it appear to be only minutes away, excluding the reality of really bad traffic from 8:30 a.m and again 5 to 6:30 or 7:00.pm The trip into town is only 8 minutes with no traffic and 45 minutes to get back to the hotel during rush hour. That was my only dissapointment. The so called "mall" and shopping were pretty sad. Poor quality stores with low end merchendise and shady clientel was a major let down because I needed to shop.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LPLS Will stay here often
Since family live in this area, I have stayed here a couple of times and will again. I was impressed and happy that staff remembered me and greeted me as a returning guest when I walked in. Room was very comfortable IF a tad small. Some Holiday Inn Express properties DO have bigger rooms. I like the area with several nearby stores and shopping and restaurants, some within walking distance. There is also a near-by nature trail if you want outdoor exercise. Breakfast is a cut above the regular free breakfasts many chains offer. My ONLY complaint -- if that -- is that I wish rooms were serviced earlier in the day. I returned from a long day out, for a nap, and my room had still not been cleaned, so I had to opt out of a room cleaning, which was really no problem. Let me stress that I could NOT have been more comfortable, and staff is warm, friendly, and helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great place to stay
My ONLY comment is that my room faced an adjoining parking lot for a fast food establishment and was noisy from time to time. Otherwise, I always choose this hotel when in the area for all of the other FINE features.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JRZ ALC Best Stay Ever
We came to Pittsburgh for a sporting event and the weather was terrible. We decided to stop to eat and get a hotel. We also wanted transportation into the city. We called this hotel and were WOWed by the service. The front desk attendant was so helpful and helped us get to the event without driving. We also were not planning to stay so we were unprepared. The front desk got us toothpaste, toothbrushes, and everything we need. The room was so clean and the food was amazing. Everyone was so nice. I will stay at this restaurant anytime I can. I am a Holiday Inn Express guy for life.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lion Gene Several items
Found the bed to be too hard, but we were helped. We were given a pad and comforter to use on the bed, which made it much better.
Loved having chocolate chip cookies when we came in at night.
Found the pancake machine easy to operate and enjoyed the pancakes. Also appreciated the variety of eggs that were served over our stay.

Just here for one night but our room was very clean, bed was comfy, breakfast was fine. Great stay. We stayed for a Steelers game. Right down the road there was a movie theater, target & a hand full of resturants to choose from. It took us about 10 minutes to drive to the stadium the next morning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MBNYC Good location; easy parking; spotty cleaning service
We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express for two nights and had a good overall experience. The location is convenient to everything we needed, and the parking could not be more convenient. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The breakfast provided each morning was complete and satisfactory. They also offer snacks in the afternoon and evening -- chocolate chip cookies, apples, oranges, and apple cider. I was especially thrilled that it was such a new property.
My only (and I do mean ONLY) two complaints are that 1) the cleaning service "missed" our room after our first night there. Since we checked out after the second night, I will never know if this was a regular occurrence (for instance, would they just not clean our room and make our beds until we had already checked out?). and 2) that the toiletries and bathroom products were pretty light. There was no bar soap for the sink OR bathtub/shower, and there was only one shower gel, which -- for two people and no bar soap -- has to really stretch.
Other than those two things, it was a great place and I will definitely recommend it to others and will most likely stay there again.
