Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amanda30 Cleanest rooms around!
I was very impressed with our King room. The bed was very comfortable and even though it is close to train tracks, I didn't hear a thing. The bathroom was impeccably cleaned. Overall nice stay!

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at this hotel and just like the first we were completely satisfied. The room was clean and spacious, the staff was terrific, the service was outstanding, and the food was plenty at breakfast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steelers58 Good Stay
I really enjoyed staying at this Holiday Inn Express. It was a very clean & comfortable hotel. We travelled with our 9 month old baby and my mother in law. As my wife and I went to the Steelers game, my mother in law stayed with the baby. We tried calling the hotel several times during a 40 minute period and nobody at the front desk answered to connect us with our room. I hope this was an isolated incident. A recommendation for the hotel, some high chairs for babies in the breakfast area would be great. Aside from that, the staff was great and I would try this hotel again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SteelerFan45 Switched us from doubles to singles without contact
My three friends and I booked 2 double bed rooms with the hotel about 5 days in advance for the upcoming Steelers game (we live a couple hours away). Unfortunately we weren’t able to check in until after the night game, which ended up being about 1 o’clock in the morning. During the check-in, the hotel staffer helping us reads a note stating the hotel had overbooked the doubles and all they had left were two rooms with singular king sized beds. There were also no cots or suites to upgrade to. This was unfortunate for us as the only reason we stayed here was the promise of our own beds for the night. Worse was that it was already so late in the night that finding another hotel was not possible. The next morning, I talked with the manager upon checkout who was very friendly but admitted that she had changed our room from two doubles to the kings without asking us. Her excuse was that on the online website for booking can be confusing and that to her it stated there were two people checking in for the two double rooms. So she decided to give us the kings, not thinking there were four people coming. This was disconcerting to us as the hotel had our contact information and a simple phone call or email would have answered how many people were coming. They did give us $20 off each of our rooms for the mistake (roughly 15% discount). However, each of us would have gladly paid the extra $10 for our own beds. I’ll also say the room was fine and the hotel itself was nice. The complimentary breakfast was also fine. If I could give advice, I’d call early and make sure they don’t switch your room as they did to us and you’ll have a fine stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by grandkidsarethebest Very comfortable, clean room
The staff was very warm & friendly, as well as helpful. They even gave us a lint roller! The room was clean & quiet; the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was very good & the staff was right there to refill or get things we needed right away. I would immediately recommend this hotel to others staying in Pittsburgh.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michael1967 Friendly folks
I was just looking for a place to hang our hats after the show in Munhall, but was pleasantly surprised by our stay at the Holiday Inn Express. The room was spotless, and quite comfy, albeit a little small. The front desk people were the friendliest and most helpful I've ever encountered at a small hotel. The location was perfect, minutes away from the venue, and there are lots of dining choices in the area. The in house breakfast was a great final touch. I'll be back when there's another show at the Carnegie Music Hall.

Our first time in Pittsburgh and we love the city. This location is right in the midst of a clean and newer shopping area. Dave and Buster's near as well. A newer hotel property with friendly staff.

I enjoyed my stay at this Hotel rooms were a little small but neat and clean within walking distance of shopping areas. The only drawbacks were no swimming pool or whirlpool, and no fridges or microwaves in the room other than that I enjoyed my stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dwericks1 Good price and location
A relatively new Hoiday Inn Express. A good price for the area and the rooms are nicely appointed and beds comfortable. Located in the busy Waterfront Mall area so that is either a good thing if you like to access the shopping and things to do, or bad if you are looking for something a bit more secluded and in a quieter neighborhood. If you are also looking for extras like a swimming pool, whirlpool and a sauna - you will not find any of those here. They do have a rather small gym but that is about it besides the standard Express breakfast which was good.

I was greeted with a smile and a small token (bag with water and snacks).
I then arrived at my room and it was very comfortable overall, but I was very impressed by the cleanliness of the room. I observed some of the housekeepers on my way back from breakfast and they were being very thorough in their cleaning of the room. I will definitely stay there again!!!
Breakfast was good and everything looked very clean.
Great job overall!!!

I stay at this location quite often, and I have nothing but rave reviews for it. The staff goes above and beyond every visit and it is like a second home! The rooms are always clean and the breakfast is worthy of a charge. I travel a lot for work and this is my favorite hotel to visit. Keep up the good work, it is appreciated !!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toddresq3 Great place to stay
We stayed here after a day of shopping and before going to Kennywood the next day. 5 minutes from Kennywood! The hotel was new, very clean and well appointed. Breakfast was great, good food, nice variety with healthy options. The front desk, housekeeping and breakfast staff were all very nice and friendly. The only thing we wanted would have been a bigger bed, we are normal size people with a king bed at home. The double bed was a bit snug, but comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay on the east side of the Burgh.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Walt705 Top Notch Friendly and Caring Service, Great Location
Samantha at the front desk should be commended for her diligent efforts to help us in a special situation. We travel to Pittsburgh often and stay at this hotel which is convenient to not only PITT, but adjacent to many restaurants (Rock Bottom, Bravo, PF Changs), and anything else you may need (Macy's, Target, Giant Eagle Food, Best Buy, Lowes, etc#. This trip was different since our daughter was admitted to the hospital. After checking in and spending a night, we found out that our daughter would need to stay in the hospital for several days. However, all the hotels in the area were booked. Samantha was able to get us a room after a cancellation so we could be closer to the hospital and not have to travel to a remote hotel. She gave us platinum service #not even knowing that I am Platinum Elite at IHG Rewards Club). Rooms at this new hotel are quiet, beds are comfortable, and location is very convenient. Top notch, thank you.

Conveniently located at the center of many shops for school needs and close to many nice restaurants. Hotel had many selections for breakfast as part of hotel stay and clean. Able to take only the side roads to avoid traffic going into the university during back to school or for the summer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by taysheapo Friendly Staff and Great Complimentary Breakfast
Upon our early arrival to pick up our Kennywood tickets, we were greeted with an offer to get 'checked in early.' Keep in mind this was a busy Saturday morning at the end of summer and we arrived at the hotel at 10:00 AM. We were just planning to pick up our park tickets, but were surprised and delighted to be able to check into our room and not have to worry about our bags in our vehicle while it was parked for 12 hours at the amusement park. The following morning, we were impressed by the lovely, cooked, complimentary breakfast offered at the hotel. From freshly made pancakes, biscuits and gravy, eggs, cinnamon rolls, etc. the breakfast was way more than we expected. The young lady who was handling the entire breakfast on her own on a morning that the hotel was completely booked, did a fabulous job of keeping everything full, the dining room clean and had a smile on her face. If we had the occasion to stay at the Waterfront again, we would definitely choose this location. Thank you for the warm and friendly hospitality. You more than exceeded our expectations!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JJAH Room small
The room was small and the beds were double instead of queen. No room for a second chair so we had to sit on the beds while watching TV. Front desk was helpful when TV initially didn't work. It Does take a Long Time to change channels, though!
Nice to have a fridge in the room for restaurant leftovers.
We wanted to play some of the board games available in the lobby but they were missing (most of the) pieces. Breakfast was OK - needed more fruit and oatmeal. Breakfast lady was very nice and efficient. Front desk was helpful and friendly. The only problem we had is the Very Bright parking light outside our window and some noisy guests next door on the first night of our stay.

This location is perfect for anyone. Tons of shops and restaurants all within walking distance or a 2 minute drive. Hotel was clean and service was great. There was construction going on near the front entrance preventing entry and exit but I was politely directed toward the breakfast area door, no big deal. I did have an issue getting the TV to work but the front desk offered some advice to fix the problem and it worked. Satisfied stay and I will definitely stay here again!

I stay here almost 14 days out of the month. I work with US Steel, and this Holiday Inn Express is by far the best one I have stayed at when working in Pittsburgh. The rooms are always clean, and the front desk goes above and beyond. I always stop and see Renee in the morning before heading to work and always get asked about my day from Brock or Samantha when I return. If you are traveling for business and you want a home away from home. I highly recommend this hotel to any business traveler.
