Why come to Pittsburgh? Imagine a vacation exploring the picturesque waterfront downtown, wandering historic neighborhoods and enjoying the excellent local dining and nightlife. But that’s not the only good news. Cheap hotels in Pittsburgh abound, making this often overlooked but dynamic metropolis a great choice for a city break or for getting under the skin of the place during an extended stay. If you’re searching for Pittsburgh at a nice price, halt the search here – here are, for our money, the best of the bunch. Book your accommodation with Culture Trip, and enjoy.
The coffee shops and restaurants of Bakery Square are right outside the door of your room at the SpringHill Suites, a cheap Pittsburgh hotel that feels quite effortlessly more luxurious than its room rates might indicate. Staying here, you’ll enjoy access to the next-door LA Fitness gym, and several day spas await your pampering requirements in the immediate vicinity. Save even more by taking advantage of the free breakfasts served daily and be sure to round off the night at the lobby cocktail bar.
The Hyatt Place Pittsburgh stands out among cheap Pittsburgh Hotels for its amazing location – it’s just a stone’s throw from some of the city’s most popular attractions – among them the Carnegie Science Center and PNC Park. And that’s not the only incentive to stay. On-site restaurants and a fitness center keep you both well fed and refreshed, while you can sneak in to send emails at the business center. Top money-saving tip? Take advantage of the free breakfast to get prepped to take the city by storm.
Spa-style bathrooms and stylish bedrooms await at the Cambria Hotel Pittsburgh Downtown – just a few of the pleasant surprises in a place priced this competitively. Available to all guests is a fitness center professionals would surely covet, complete with an indoor pool and large hot tub. Meanwhile, the on-site restaurant serves three delicious meals a day. In the mood to save even more money? Forget taking taxis and make the most of the hotel’s free shuttle service, serving attractions within 2mi (3km) of the property.
Stylish Keurig coffeemakers: check. Mini-fridges stocked with snacks: double-check. They’re among the advantages of a stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Pittsburgh University Place. Self-catering simplicity makes this place a great cheap Pittsburgh hotel option – hunker down and switch off. Regional specialties are popular at the Garden Bar and Grille, in-house, and if you can’t face that, there’s room service for all. Right on the University of Pittsburgh campus, it’s walkable from some great Pittsburgh sports arenas.
If you’re a sports fanatic in town to indulge, the SpringHill Suites Pittsburgh North Shore is the best place you could pick. PNC Park is right across the street, and both Heinz Field and PPG Paints Arena are less than 1mi (1.6km) away. Inspired after catching a game? Get yourself into training shape at the fitness center, with its impressive amenities, then relax by the hotel pool. The free breakfast buffet includes both hot and cold options, while SoHo, right next door, offers upscale versions of American classics – try the mac and cheese – late into the night.
OK, you’ve been looking for a cheap hotel in Pittsburgh with weekly and monthly rates – well, look no further than the Residence Inn Pittsburgh, Monroeville/Wilkins Township. The deal here is apartment-style studio suites or one- and two-bedroom alternatives. They’ve got attractive kitchens and comfortable separate dining areas, making dinners in with (new best) friends an affordable cinch. Tiny details – alarm clock on the nightstand, hair dryer in the bathroom – make suites here feel like a home away from home.
What a great setting – right on historic Market Square, home to Pittsburgh’s first courthouse, jail and newspaper room. The Hilton Garden Inn Hotel Downtown Pittsburgh is very much for those wanting to be in the heart of the Pittsburgh action. Lined with cafes, restaurants and shops, the Market Square area is one of the city’s top tourist attractions and bustles with activity both day and night. Make the most of it, then slink home to rooms both sleek and minimalist. Several have the advantage of stocked mini-fridges and Keurig coffeemakers as well as hypnotic views of life in the square.
Residence Inn is a super-reliable Marriott brand property, so you can breathe easy. Here, you get spacious apartment-style suites and fully equipped kitchens – even a heated indoor pool and an on-site fitness center. That’s the magic of Steel City – you can live a luxurious cosmopolitan life for just a fraction of the price of other major US cities. Ask for the weekly and monthly rate deals to save even more and, given the free breakfast and local restaurant dinner delivery, who knows – you may never leave.
