The City of Steel has blossomed into a cultural hot spot with delightful neighborhoods, world-class museums and art galleries, and eclectic shops, restaurants and cafes - all worth exploring during your stay at one of our Holiday Inn Express® Pittsburgh hotels.
Pittsburgh's downtown Golden Triangle area is the cultural and economic heart of the city, housing both the central business district and acclaimed performing arts scene. The city's hilly landscape and unusual layout make it difficult to get around on foot, so if you're staying in one of our downtown Pittsburgh hotels, you'll be pleased to know that you can work and play within steps of your hotel.
Spend an evening listening to classical music at the Pittsburgh Symphony or in the stands cheering on the Pittsburgh Penguins (2009 Stanley Cup winners). The Strip District, with its bustling open-air markets, offers a truly unique shopping experience - one we hope all of our Pittsburgh hotel guests get to try - while historic Oakland is popular with tourists for its variety of restaurants, universities and museums.
Speaking of museums, Pittsburgh has them in spades, and the world-class Carnegie institutions are a must-see during your Pittsburgh hotel stay. The Museum of Natural History has excellent paleontology and geology exhibits, while the Museum of Art offers both classical and contemporary selections. If you're traveling with the whole family in tow, you'll find the Carnegie Science Center and the Pittsburgh Children's Museum are great ways to spend the day. Finish up with a picnic in Highland Park and a visit to the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium, and the kids will never want to leave.
Looking for something more edgy and less family friendly? Pittsburgh can accommodate your needs too. Stop by the Andy Warhol Museum for exhibits on the Pittsburgh-born artist's life and a stand-out collection of pop art, then peruse the large-scale contemporary pieces at the famous Mattress Factory. Once the sun goes down, you'll want to hit up Pittsburgh's popular night spots.
Southside offers lively bars, dance clubs and local concert venues up and down Carson Street. You'll also find great coffeehouses in this area, perfect for grabbing a caffeine pick-me-up on your way back to your Holiday Inn Express Pittsburgh hotel.
