Hampton Inn Green Tree Review – A Standard Hotel With a Few Surprises

Normally when we review Pittsburgh hotels we select our properties to stay in to review them for their location or unique amenities.

In the case of the Hampton Inn Greentree, we selected this one for its price as we were getting some work done on our house and needed to be away for two nights with our dog without spending a lot of money.

As many hotels do not allow pets, and those that do charge an insane pet fee on top of their price, we set our sights on the Hampton Inn Greentree to take a look at their offering as one of the most budget friendly hotels in the city- and we were pleasantly surprised by what we found.

5 of the Best Hotels in Pittsburgh with Stunning City Views

When it comes to hotels with city views in Pittsburgh, we are fortunate enough to have several of them. In our quest to visit the city's top hotels, we've come to find that while many hotels have city views, not all of them have great views in relative abundance. As such, planning on getting a room with an epic view can be tricky depending on where you stay.

To help with this, we found five hotels that not only have great views, but views in a good number of rooms as well. You may still have to do a bit of work to get one, but if you plan accordingly your chances for that stellar scene go up quite a bit!

The Holiday Inn Pittsburgh North Shore shocked us, there is no other way to put it.

5 of the Best Hotels Near PNC Park in Pittsburgh

Exodus at PNC Park

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 near PNC Park you may want to choose for your stay!

Hyatt Pittsburgh Airport Review – A Short Walk to the Airport

I'm not one to complain about traveling in normal situations (in fact, I absolutely love traveling), but if I had to pick one of my least favorite aspects of my favorite hobby, it would most certainly be getting up early for a flight.

Lately we've had enough of this and have decided to start booking overnight stays at Pittsburgh airport hotels to help us get just a little bit more sleep to start our trips on the right foot. On a recent visit we decided to pay a visit to the Hyatt Pittsburgh Airport, the only hotel that is actually connected to the airport terminal, to see what it is like.

With only steps between our bed and the gate we had to redefine the term spoiled. Although the room may be lacking some aspects, the location and amenities make up for it by far.

DoubleTree Pittsburgh Review – Perfect for a Penguins Game Downtown

The DoubleTree Downtown Pittsburgh is a decent mid-range hotel in downtown Pittsburgh that is located in a prime spot next to PPG Paints Arena and a short walk from the action of the city.

During our visit, we wanted to find out if this hotel had any hidden surprises beyond these obvious perks, and while we found a few under the surface, we have to be honest in that the location is the true highlight worth staying at this hotel for- and there is nothing wrong with that in the slightest.

Hilton Garden Inn Pittsburgh Downtown Review – An All Around Gem

The Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Pittsburgh is a newer addition to Pittsburgh's hotel scene, having just opened in March 2016.

With clean and modern rooms (many of which have views of Market Square), an adjacent parking garage, and two on-site restaurants, this hotel is a great option for those visiting the city and wanting to be at the center of all the action.

Hampton Inn Pittsburgh Review – A Perfect Location Downtown

For most, the neighborhood interface between downtown Pittsburgh and the Strip District is a bit empty. There are a few restaurants and even the Heinz History Center (one of the top museums in the city), but beyond that there isn't much to attract the foot traffic like in the heart of the two neighborhoods themselves.

On the surface, this may seem like to be a downside. But this particular spot is home to several hotels which claim a key location within walking distance of not one, but two of the city's most popular neighborhoods to explore.

Naturally, we had to head downtown to check them out, and on a late-2016 night we stayed at the Hampton Inn Pittsburgh to see what makes this one worth your attention on your next visit to the city.

Hilton Garden Inn Pittsburgh Airport Review – A Modern Option

We recently stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn Pittsburgh Airport South Robinson Mall before an early morning flight, and it proved to be a clean, modern, comfortable stay just seven miles from the airport.

Although this one is a bit further out than other airport hotels, there are a few reasons you may want to consider this one over the alternatives.
