Hilton was my first downtown hotel, and I recommend it for anyone’s introduction to the
city. The first few blocks of the Triangle that is Pittsburgh are special, despite the traffic that empties onto it from Fort Pitt Bridge. Pedestrians are somehow sheltered from it and forget about it, and this is a hotel for people on foot -- parking is limited, expensive, and available only by advance arrangement. The "T" is practically across the street -- one short level block. From the park to Fifth Avenue Place are more flowers and grass and more showcase, modern buildings than anywhere else in town, and in the evenings, traffic subsides and the area becomes a place for a stroll. Fine restaurants are within the first block, and Hilton has its own "alternative" dining.
The lobby and hallways are elegantly furnished with open lounge, and the "promenade" or wide hallway has sidewalk cafe, pub, Chicago Pizza, and shops with Rodeo Drive items, a chic-casual atmosphere with dining tables along the walkway. A newsstand is down another hall with convenience items. The miniature city is an enticing place to be. There is a fitness room we haven’t used and local transportation we’ve never needed.
Rooms are large and well-furnished. Ours had table and two armchairs in front of the
window; others are designed for workspace. We had everything we needed, including
coffeepot, coffee and tea, complimentary spring water, and personal items. Everything
was immaculate, well-lighted, and in working order. Staff was efficient and
We’ve always stayed in summer when Hilton sets up a canopied bar on the front sidewalk,
complete with live music and cool river breeze. The city has successfully routed traffic away from the park, so it isn’t noisy or dangerous to cross the street for a change of scenery. For theater, take the "T" or walk two more blocks to the cultural district. A concierge is in the lobby for schedules and reservations, and tour buses always stop at the door.
