My original review said: Arrived on a Friday for a 3 night stay, and check in was great: friendly staff; Quick service; got room right away. Came back Saturday afternoon, and while bed wss made; bathroom was not. Spoke to front desk, and they promised a quick fix. Came back in the evening, and door was open; bathroom only half done, and no towels at all. Called front desk for a quick fix and towels appeared. Returned again Sunday late afternoon in time to change for a wedding, and neither room nor bathroom had been done. Called front dedk for a quick fix. BUT this was 3 strikes for a high class hotel and totally not acceptable. The front dedk staff did their best... BUT this should mot have happdned three times in thr space of two days!
Add to this review: Even after we left, Management reached out to us to again offer apologies, and while they had made good at end of our stay, they also insiated on reimbursement for our troubles. That is a class act that should be recognized, and I appreciated their outreach, I will stay there again in the future.

We loved our stay at the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel! Located in the Strip District, it is convenient to Market Square (a short walk) and has a lot of historical character.
Check In - We valet parked. A little hard to get to the correct side of the street, but we figured it out. Greeted at the curb. Front desk staff is very professional and check-in was a breeze.
Room - #1022 - Oh my word, a corner room with a view. We could see directly into PNC Field. The downtown bridges were incredible. Out another window, Heinz Field was framed by the hotels famous arch. (See photos). Our room had a king bed and was spacious. The only ding is the chairs. Very uncomfortable, but the desk/chair area was good.
Concierge Level - We were upgraded with access to the lounge. Evening hors d'oevres and drinks were good. Breakfast was adequate with several choices from bacon and biscuits to fresh fruit and yogurt - standard fare.
Atmosphere - We really enjoyed the lobby area and bar. This building is beautiful, and we are so glad we stayed.
Check out - Smooth. Out the door quickly to our awaiting car. Yes, we would stay again!
