Towering hotels in Pittsburgh's heart
Pittsburgh has a very recognisable city centre, especially after featuring prominently as the fictional city of Gotham in the film The Dark Knight Rises. Many of the high-rising buildings are luxurious hotels, such as the 4-star Omni William Penn Hotel home to the intimate and finely furnished Speakeasy lounge.
Pittsburgh's downtown area isn't just tall buildings. With two national sporting teams, free gallery crawls, historical and interactive museums, and riverside parkland, there's plenty to occupy your days in the city. The sights are within easy reach when you stay at the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel and the Marriott Pittsburgh City Center.
Sparkling city and river views from Mt Washington
One of the best places to stand and admire panoramic views of Pittsburgh's city centre is from the top of Mount Washington. Not your typical mountain, Mt Washington is lined with restaurants, houses and a long stretch of lookout points.
You can stay at the base of Mount Washington at the Sheraton Pittsburgh at Station Square Hotel or the Holiday Inn Express & Suites, both positioned right near the river and Station Square's restaurants and bars. Take a scenic ride on a 137-year-old Incline car up to the top of the mountain if you want to dine or stroll amongst the gorgeous city views.
Convenient accommodation for sport fans
Pittsburgh is home to a national football team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and a major league baseball team, the Pittsburgh Pirates. Both of the home stadiums are separated by a shopping and dining district full of merchandise stores and sports bars. Stay at one of the hotels near or in between the fields to get right amongst the sporting atmosphere.
When staying at the Hyatt Place you can easily stroll down to catch a game of football or baseball, before heading back to the hotel for dinner at the 24-hour restaurant. The SpringHill Suites also keeps you close to the sporting action, with a pool for taking a dip after a big day out at the ball game.
