When it comes to highlighting great hotels, it would be easy for us to simply list the five or so hotels that are right next to PNC Park and call it a day. But that would not be very much fun for us, and definitely not helpful to you. Instead, we wanted to take a look at a few different things visitors coming to Pittsburgh for a baseball game may consider.
Luckily for you, location is just one of those points, and we've found five awesome hotels you may want to choose for your stay!
SpringHill Suites North Shore
If proximity is what you are after, there is no property closer to PNC Park than the SpringHill Suites North Shore as it is, quite literally, located across the street from the stadium. The rooms here may not feature views of the gorgeous downtown skyline, but even numbered rooms do look out on PNC Park to varying degrees. For those who want easy access to the stadiums, the budget-friendly suite with average amenities is a good option to consider. Just be careful if you arrive before or after another scheduled game as traffic around the stadium can get pretty intense!
Things to consider: Overnight parking is $25/day and the shuttle is complimentary (on 30-minute intervals). The walls are also fairly thin here- both for neighboring rooms and outside events.

Holiday Inn Pittsburgh North Shore
The Holiday Inn Pittsburgh North Shore is a budget friendly hotel with updated amenities located just steps away from PNC Park, a short walk from Heinz Field, and is just one block from the Roberto Clemente Bridge- meaning you can easily get around downtown Pittsburgh and the North Shore on foot without a lot of effort. The comfortable rooms, shuttle, and in-and-out parking privileges offer the perfect combination of location and ability to explore the city when you're not enjoying the game. But perhaps best of all is that upper floor rooms ending in 5-11 have some of the best views of the city in the neighborhood! (View above is from room 905.)
Things to Consider: Parking is $23 per night with in and out privileges. Hotel is located close to highway 376 and non-view rooms may have louder traffic noise.

The Renaissance Hotel
The Renaissance Hotel is one of downtown Pittsburgh's most historical hotels, and it offers a special double bonus for those coming in for a Pirates game- the location and the view! This luxury hotel is located just across the river from PNC Park, meaning it is just a brisk walk across the Clemente Bridge to reach the stadium. As an added bonus many of the rooms look out over the Allegheny River and PNC Park, making this one perfect for those who want an iconic view of the stadium outside of the game. If you happen to be visiting during a Pirates fireworks night (and are not attending that game), select rooms in this hotel also offer front row seats to the show. How can you say no to that?
Things to consider: Valet parking is $36 at the hotel and approximately $13 at a garage next door with no in and out privileges. Not all hotel rooms have views of PNC Park.

Sheraton Station Square
It may seem a bit unusual for us to recommend a hotel in the South Side as being one of the best for visiting PNC Park, but there is a pretty simple reason behind this- Pittsburgh's small metro, the T, has stops right next to both the hotel and PNC Park! The Sheraton Station Square, although somewhat basic, is perfect for those coming in to the city for a game, especially first-timers as its location offers a lot of perks. The Gateway Clipper is within walking distance, one of the city's two iconic Inclines is just steps away, the premium river rooms have an incredible view that is well worth the splurge, and, as we mentioned above, the T rail line is next door. These won't get you everywhere, but it will get you to PNC Park and that is a good start!
Things to consider: Parking is $25 per day, but the hotel's location is convenient for those making trips around town during a visit including trips to PNC Park. The T line from Station Square into downtown charges a round-trip rate (although if you walk across the river to the next stop downtown it will be free to the park- an interesting Pittsburgh nuance for sure!).

Embassy Suites Downtown Pittsburgh
If you are looking for a nice room in a newer property with one of the most unique views of PNC Park you can have, Embassy Suites Downtown Pittsburgh is for you. Despite being a short walk to the stadium, the size of the rooms, the hotel's many amenities, as the hotel's location on the top floors of a downtown high-rise make for a unique combination we just can't say no to. Be sure to grab a drink at Ollie's Gastropub which has some of the best cocktails in the city and has a view looking straight onto home plate at PNC Park!
Things to consider: Valet parking with in-and-out privilege is $32 per night. The Oliver garage nearby is $19/night on weeknights and $5/night on weekends without in-and-out privileges. The T line is free within downtown and to the stadiums.

Looking for a budget friendly hotel a bit further out of the city with shuttle options to the game? We have to give an honorable mention to the Hampton Inn Green Tree which is in decent proximity to the city and offers free parking, free pet stays, and a shuttle that runs to the stadiums for games! (As always, we recommend calling to confirm prior to booking as this perk could always change.)
